No matter what the size of your nursery, it’s always important to have practical storage solutions for all of your baby’s needs. Clothes, diapers, toys, lotions… you name it!
And while we want to keep some things out of little ones’ hands, we do want them to easily access and enjoy other things! Check out these six hacks for unique, affordable, and fun storage solutions in your nursery.
1. Hanging Baskets
This is one of my favorite nursery solutions. Easily create storage space by hanging wired or fabric baskets to the wall. You can also mount a thin metal pole to the wall and use “s-hooks” to hang your baskets in a row, if you’d rather not hang them by themselves. This storage hack is also a great way to add more decor to your space. Hang baskets that coordinate with your little one’s nursery decor to make them especially eye-catching. I love using this idea near the diaper changing station. This is a great solution for diapers, mess cloths and other baby products.
2. Diaper Boxes
Instead of tossing those diaper boxes, restyle and reuse them for storage! Cover cardboard boxes in coordinating fabrics and finish off with ribbons and a tag to mark what’s being stored. These are perfect for closets and to place on bookshelves! And it’s the perfect inexpensive way to upcycle what you already have! It’s easy to get creative with this project and make one-of-a-kind storage for your nursery.
3. Shoe Organizer
Use an inexpensive over-the-door shoe organizer to save space and store a variety of baby stuff, including shoes, socks, onesies, teething toys, lotions/creams, hair bows, mess cloths and more! The clear plastic makes it easy to find what you are looking for.
3. Under the Crib
Don’t forget to utilize the space under your crib if needed! This is a place you can use your less eye-catching storage boxes and hide all of your extra diapers and clothing that might be too big for baby right now. Use a crib skirt to hide your storage and make your baby’s crib look even more adorable.
4. Fruit Baskets
Use tiered or hanging fruit baskets to add extra storage to your changing area or to the room in general. Use it to store items you reach for constantly or for cute stuffed animals and toys you want to display. Storing items vertically will save you so much space!
5. Peg Boards
Peg boards are such a versatile storage solution. They are inexpensive and you can paint them to easily match your baby’s room. Get hooks to hang baskets, display artwork, hang mess cloths so they’re easy to grab, and store other items you reach for constantly.
Make the most of your dresser drawers and use dividers and canvas bins to organize everything in your little one’s dresser. This will make it easy to find what you need quickly! Also, make sure to only store clothing that currently fits baby and store clothing that no longer fits or is too big in another location.
