Another way to free up space is to keep your closet as a storage area but do away with the doors. Doors that swing in or out just take up valuable floor space. To create a little extra space, remove swinging closet doors and install a curtain instead. This is also a great way to add a pop of color or a fun pattern to your nursery decor.
In a tight space, one of the first things to go is the standard-sized crib. Some parents put their newborn to sleep in a bassinet. But within a couple of months, they’ll outgrow a bassinet. When that happens (or from the very beginning), opt for a mini crib. At 24 inches wide and 38 inches long, the mini crib is smaller than a standard-sized crib and is more space-economical. Plus, the Newton Baby breathable Crib Mattress is available in both standard and mini sizes, so you don’t have to sacrifice safety!
You will spend a great deal of energy lifting your baby in and out of the crib. Look for a crib with a drop-side and adjustable mattress height to make this task easier. You may also want to look for a crib with rolling casters. These will allow you to move the crib around easily should you wish to do so.
Mount a stylish rod on the wall to hang clothes, or install a hook to hang a laundry bag or canvas bag full of toys. Pegboard is another great way to organize all sorts of baby necessities. You can also use the walls to store all those stuffed animals your little one will inevitably collect. Buy a net (or two!) to hang in the corner to keep your baby’s teddies and dolls cozy and contained.
