Size wise, the 3-drawer MALM is almost similar to the NORDLI chest. The NORDLI cut out handles may be easier for little fingers to use, compared to the MALM flush drawer front. Price wise, a big $70 difference between the MALM and NORDLI.
#3 KALLAX units
The KALLAX 2×4 can be used on the long side of the KURA, while the 2×2 will fit at the end of the KURA.
Slot in some KALLAX drawer inserts, doors or baskets if you prefer closed storage.
#4 TROFAST units
Another popular option is the TROFAST units. They are great for toy storage and can be configured in so many ways.
Hope this post has given you a few ideas, Danni. Whatever you decide, do take measurements of the space beneath the KURA and chest of drawers to be certain they fit. Measurements may have changed over the years.
