Simply so, can you use a chest of drawers as a changing table?
And when your little darling no longer needs a change table, why you don't have one, you have a chest of drawers, useful for many more years. Don't bother buying the change table. Buy two of the raised change mats and use an existing chest of drawers or buy one instead of buying the change table.
One may also ask, is it worth buying a changing table? A changing table is a stand-alone piece of nursery furniture. The top is the right size for a changing mat, with shelves or drawers underneath for storing nappies, baby wipes and changing accessories. A changing table helps you keep your nappy-changing supplies in one place. However, they can be expensive and bulky.
Similarly, how tall should a dresser be for a changing table?
Well, it's a great idea to use a regular dresser for changing, especially if you're limited in space. A good height would be about 36″ tall. A standard table might be 20″ wide x 26″ long x 36″ high. A standard changing pad is 17″ x 33″.
How much is a changing table?
Typical costs: The majority of home changing tables cost $100-$200.
