Any parents who are great at DIY will be over the moon to try their hand at building a bed spaceship or even painting a glow in the dark star scene on the ceiling. 

4) Jungle bedroom

Who doesn't like animals? If your infant adores learning about tigers, elephants, monkeys and giraffes, then they'll enjoy a whole room designed with these magnificent creatures. 

We're talking about everything from the Tidlo Wooden Natural Jungle Toy Chest to the little details like Mousehouse Gifts Kids Safari Themed Photo Frame.

5) Under the sea bedroom

Elegantly rounded corners set this distinctive cot apart from the crowd. It’s available in white or grey and has an adjustable bed base with three different mattress positions to suit your baby from birth to toddlerhood.

It’s designed for use with the Kub Luna cot mattress (£70-90), which can be bought separately. However, a standard cot mattress won’t fit because of the rounded edges, so factor that into your budget.
