The nursery is your baby’s domain and let’s face it, you likely have a lot of items that need to fit into the small space you must work with. Before you panic, there are some ways that you can maximize the space. Below you will find some of our excellent storage hacks and organization items for your nursery. Check them out.
Utilize the Space Under the Crib
You may not have even thought about it, but the space under the crib is a wonderful spot to store items. You can use baskets or even empty diaper boxes and place extra toys, clothes, and wipe packs into them.
The boxes or baskets will simply slide under the crib and you can grab them whenever you are in need of something that is inside.
Hang Up Some Baskets
Baskets are a wonderful thing and they are fashionable too. You can hang up a few different wicker baskets and add either stuffed animals to them or you can place items you need to use every day in them.
One of the reasons many new moms choose hanging baskets is because they double as décor too.
Always Go Vertical
Vertical is the way to go and is often forgotten about. Many people think horizontal and you are missing out on a lot of space.
You can go vertical just about anywhere, so think the walls or even the back of the door.
One great way to store extra toys in your little one’s room is to grab some canvas bags, fill them with toys, and then hang them up vertically on the back of the door. When your child wants to play with some toys, simply grab a bag.
Use a Curtain Rod
You can never have too much space and you can never have too many baby clothes either. One of the biggest complaints from new moms is that they have too many cute clothes and nowhere to store them.
If you are in need of some extra space, hang a curtain rod or a towel rod on the wall and then hang up the week’s clothes. This way, you have the clothes you need at hand, they are not taking up room in the dresser, and they double as a cute display too.
Hang Wooden Crates for Books and Stuffed Animals
Wooden crates do not have to just sit on the ground and you can now hang them up on the wall. Depending on your personal style, you can take a wooden crate, cut it in half down the middle and then attach the crate to the wall. This way, you have a place for books or stuffed animals.
Think About the Space You Have and Get Creative
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your child’s nursery storage. There are many ways to store items and there is a lot of unused storage space in the room too. If you would like to store items efficiently in your child’s nursery, you can also consider a pegboard.
Make Storage Safe
You want your baby or toddler to be safe in their own room and your home. That may include a safety gate for the stair case, latches for cabinet doors, and covers for your electrical outlets. We found some great no-drill cabinet locks that don’t require any drilling. Make sure shelves and dressers don’t turn over easily by anchoring them to the wall. And most of all, keep chemicals and medicines out of reach from curious youngsters. Instead of storing clean supplies under a sink, more them to a high shelf in a closet or cabinet that can be secured.
