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.
Even in a small room, it’s tempting to go all out with decorations like cute throw pillows and blankets. But in the name of safe sleep, skip the extra bells and whistles on the crib.
Having a small wall lamp will allow you to make the room dimmer when you don’t want the overhead light on. And there are lots of wall lamps that are stylish and will fit with just about any decor. You may also want to consider installing blackout curtains. They won’t take up any extra room and can make a big difference when you’re putting your baby to bed before the sun has gone down!
Make sure the crib you choose is safe. The best way to do this is to look for a crib with JPMA certification. This will ensure that the crib meets the minimum safety requirements promulgated by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission), as well as voluntary safety standards issued by the American Society for Testing and Materials. These standards are stricter and safer than the mandatory CPSC baby crib safety standards.
