Planning what your baby nursery will look like is a big responsibility. Good time and money needs to be spent to make your child’s haven suit your taste and seem perfect. Remember the nursery is going to be your child’s playground and general living space for quite some time so it must have some utilitarian values as well. Keeping your nursery organized is of prime importance to make sure you make most of its functional benefits. Whether your room is as large as a football field or small enough to be a closet keeping it systematized is a priority.

Below we compile a few basic tips for keeping your child’s nursery tidy.

Primary tip: See that you have sufficient space in the room for storage. Enough space for storing things will allow you to keep the room neater. Let’s take one storage area after another for consideration.

  1. The Closet - Your child’s clothes will be smaller in size than yours or your spouse's so take full advantage of the reduced dimensions, push the closet rod down until it is just a few feet above the floor. Use the extra space you create above for more shelves. You can also consider using a closet organizer to make full use of the space.
  2. Spaces Under...- The crib or the changing table are fantastic storage areas for baby stuff like diapers, creams, powders, wipes etc.
  3. Wicker baskets and Plastic containers - work very well for storing Blankets, crib sheets, bedding, bibs etc.
  4. A dresser or an armoire - sounds far too fancy to be useful but is actually quite helpful for storing things. Consider putting one of these in the nursery while deciding your interiors and furniture.
  5. Shelves and bookcases - These will allow you to put your baby’s books, toys, teddies and other itsy bitsies in place. Improvise in case the area of the room is little; use taller bookcases instead of small, short ones if the space is cramped.
  6. A toy box - one of those bits of furniture you just MUST have in a baby’s room. Once the baby comes he will be getting new toys every passing week from you, your parents, your friends and pretty much everyone else who comes to know about his arrival. The growing toy collection can obviously prove a bit problematic to clear up. A toy box is the best answer to such toy trouble. Just shove them in the box and clear up your room.

When trying to organize your baby’s nursery be innovative and imaginative and you’ll soon find little nooks and cranny to store up those little baby details in. Remember, proper storage is the first step towards clearing up a room so don’t ignore it.
