Living most of my life in Chicago and NYC, I know what it’s like to live in small spaces. With this, comes picking up a few space-saving hacks. Now that I’m living in a house, I’m excited to have more space. However, the baby room is still small when it comes to storage space. I have the typical spaces (dresser and closet) but have to be strategic to maximize them as much as possible. There are so many great ways to organize and amazing resources I talk about later on in this post. I’m also going to share some easy and affordable baby storage ideas for small spaces you can accomplish easily!
Shop The Post
A store that is highly popular when it comes to home organization is The Container Store. I love browsing the new things on their shelves, especially during the holidays. They always have beautiful wrapping paper and ribbons. Amazon also has some great storage items for your space that you can get delivered quickly. I shop these places frequently when it comes to organizing my nursery storage space and other small spaces.
Baby Storage Ideas For Small Spaces
Organize the Closet by Months and Seasons
If you have a new baby, then you know they grow very quickly. These growth spurts include going through multiple changes of clothes a day. To stay organized, I recommend getting closet dividers like these. They will make your life so much easier because you will know exactly which sizes of clothes are where. If you have a lot of clothes, use bins to swap out the baby’s clothes by season.
Use Decorative Baskets Throughout
Using decorative baskets in your storage plan can go a long way. There are some great options in different colors, shapes, and sizes. These nesting baskets by Bunny Williams are one of my favorites that you will often see interior decorators and designers using. If you need nursery ideas for decor and storage look no further! I also like these more affordable baskets you can use in the nursery and even in your living room. Both options are great for storing toys, seasonal clothes and more. The list is endless! These are also a favorite to go next to your changing table for essentials like diapers and wipes.
Organize Your Drawers And Closet Shelves
These drawer dividers are great for creating extra space to organize the items a new baby needs. It also helps keep your clothes organized by category, since they won’t shift around as easily. They are great because you can adjust them to the size of your drawer. I like the clear ones because they blend well with what is inside. I really like these acrylic shelf dividers as well to help the top shelf of your closet stay neat.
Get Slim Hangers For The Closet
Get skinny linen hangers for your baby’s closet, they are a true game changer. I also use them in my own closet. Their slender profile will help make the most of their closet space. They will also prevent their clothes from slipping, since we all know how annoying that can be. You will be surprised at how much more you can fit in the closet by using these hangers.
Shop The Post
If you’re looking for more inspiration to organize your baby room or any other spaces in your home, read Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. It’s a quick read and will get you right in the space-saving mood. Marie also has a show on Netflix called Didying Up with Marie Kondo. Another great book is The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals. This book is by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin from The Home Edit, who have become household names when it comes to home organizing. They also have a very funny show on Netflix where they organize rooms in celebrity’s homes like Reese Witherspoon. I hope these baby storage ideas for small spaces help you get organized. Comment below with some of your tips to keep your baby’s room tidy!
