We are used to hanging up tiny towels and miniscule coats on the backs of doors, but children’s clothes are not as long and do not take up as much space as adults’. Attach a row of pegs to the side of a changing table or dresser, and suddenly you have additional hanging storage!
What easier way to organize loose odds and ends than with baskets? Baskets can easily be hung from the wall to create shelves, and they are designed specifically to fit into cubby hole shelving units. Wire baskets give a more contemporary and clean look, whereas cloth and plastic baskets come in wide ranges of bold colors to liven up your nursery! Clean up after playtime has never been easier!
Again, because children’s clothing items tend to take up less space, it is incredibly easy to maximize closet space! Shelves and cubbies are great, but try adding multiple levels of rods to hang your child’s clothes! You can even try taking the rods out of the closet and attach them to the wall to hang baskets and buckets off of.
Whether your nursery has animals walking up and down the walls, is adorned with flowers, or does not have a theme at all, it is important to keep the room clean and mess free! Your baby (and your spouse!) will thank you!
