Space-Saving Ideas for Your Baby's Nursery

For many parents, adding a baby to the home may feel like a new family is moving in. Between new furniture and oversized toys, you'll soon find yourself limited on space. Fortunately, there are many simple ways to maximize space without compromising the look and function of the nursery.

First, make a plan for how you intend to arrange your baby's nursery. You can do this online or by drawing a sketch on graph paper. This will serve as a guide when you shop for baby's furniture. Prepare the space for your little one by cleaning out the room and closet.

Next, you'll need to start shopping for baby's furniture. Look for versatile pieces such as cribs with drawers underneath or combo dressers that have a changing table attached. Many cribs are convertible style, which means they can convert to toddler and day beds. These furniture choices are ideal, as they maximize the years your child can use them.

Remember that when it comes to furniture, it's always best to start with the essentials. Although some furniture sets may appear attractive in price and design, your baby's nursery may not be able to fit 4 or 5 pieces. Instead, start with the basic crib, changing table/dresser and rocking chair. Then you can add additional pieces if you choose such as an armoire or hutch.

The closet is another place you'll have to tackle, as not only will it be storing your baby's clothes, but blankets, swaddles and crib sheets. Purchase inexpensive bins and hanging shelves to place in the closet, which are great for storing these types of items. Shoe holders work great too.

For storing baby's essentials such as Q-tips, cotton balls and nail clippers, use small clear containers or decorative mugs to place near the changing table. A small table is also ideal next to the rocking chair for feedings. Install two lights; a dim one over the feeding area and a brighter one for the center of the room.

Thanks to modern decorating, you can enjoy simple furniture and accessories that will keep the nursery looking clean and simple. Toys can be kept in wicker baskets and books placed on shelves.

With a little smart planning, your baby's space, no matter how limited, can go a long way!
