Baby nursery ideas for small rooms:
If you’re working with a smaller room for your nursery, you can try a couple of these tips below to make your dream nursery still come to life:
- Ditch the dresser/changing table & utilize the space in your closet instead.
- Opt for a smaller more compact crib.
- Use compact furniture (ex. changing pad on top of dresser) to save room.
Newborn baby room decorating ideas & tips for creating a dream nursery:
If those photos above got you inspired to create a dreamy nursery, here are some extra ideas to make your baby’s room functional.
- Install dimmer lights so that you can set the mood for any stage whether its a late-night diaper change or playtime!
- Try to use convertible furniture that your baby can’t outgrow!
- Utilize as much storage as you can – your little one will get lots of clothing and toys as they grow, having enough space will be crucial!
Depending on your taste for design, some families enjoy going with a more strong-bold look while others enjoy the more mellow-rustic look.
There’s really no right or wrong way you can go when preparing your newborn’s baby nursery!
