Overhead Bins in the Nursery Closet

You can take some organization tips from Sarah, a mom a blogger from Ohio. Overhead bins are a perfect spot for onesies and sleepers that your baby can’t fit into yet. You don’t want to put something up high that you need to get into daily. You can go through these overhead bins as she grows and move her size onto hangers or in a dresser.

I also love the idea of using a cube organizer for storage. Here are some similar to the one pictured. They make such cute fabric bins, like these, that you’re sure to find some to match the nursery.

Organize Clothes Like a Retail Store

Take a tip from Shanie, a professional closet organizer, and organize your baby’s clothes by size just like you would see at a store. You can get cute dividers to separate the clothes and mark the sizes. That way you can quickly find the right clothes for your baby and as she grows you can quickly edit her closet. If you like this idea they have sets of baby hangers that come with pretty dividers that say what size the clothes are. You can find them here.

Use Baskets Under Your Changing Table

Many changing tables have shelves underneath. This is a perfect spot to set up cute baskets for all your baby storage. In them put all the diapers, wipes, extra onesies and anything else that you’ll need at arm’s reach at changing time. Arlynn, from Winnipeg, shows us how you can carve out a small spot for your baby anywhere, you don’t need an entire nursery. This’s an area in her bedroom that she created for her baby boy.

Try Clear Containers & Drawers

Clear storage bins work great for your baby’s accessories. That way you can easily see and grab what you need. You don’t have time to rummage through a ton of drawers. Here are some clear stackable drawers that would be perfect for socks, binkies, bows or any other small accessories.

Create a Custom Closet

Consider creating a custom closet to meet your needs. Standard closets work best for adult clothes so to maximize space you’ll want all the rods closer together. If you’re creating a custom closet consider a mix of clear drawers as well as solid ones. The clear ones work great for smaller items like accessories and shoes that it would be helpful to see. Caroline, who is expecting a baby boy and day now, was able to design this closet herself on Ikea.com.

Roll Baby Clothes

You can keep drawers organized with drawer organizers and then roll the tiny clothes like Caitlyn Marie, a design blogger, did to maximize your space. You might want to save plenty of drawer space for diapers too!

Use Closet Doors to Maximize Space

When planning your closet organization don’t forget about the door. This’s a great opportunity for some extra storage. Zilha, a mom and blogger, used the door for a spot to hang all of her daughter’s bows. It makes it easier to pick the perfect one when you can easily see them all. There are tons of door organizers available for sale now like these and here are some really cute closet bins and over the door organizers that are made for nurseries. You can even use ones that are made for shoes to fit all the little baby stuff and toiletries.

Make Furniture do Double Duty

Instead of having both a dresser and a changing table in your nursery why not combine the two to really maximize your space. Morgan from Charleston, South Carolina, purchased a secondhand IKEA Hemnes dresser and transformed into it a beautiful mid-century modern dresser/changing table. Her husband, Sean built the wooden changing pad topper for the dresser. If you’re not as handy you can purchase a changing table topper, like this one, to transform any dresser into a changing table.

Use Drawer Organizers

Use drawer organizers, like these cute ones, and create a purpose for each space. This Australian Mum created this drawer that is solely dedicated to her daughter, Mya’s accessories.

Closet Styling Tips

We can take several tips from Sarah, a first-time mom from Texas, on closet styling. First, why not add some wallpaper to the back of your closet to really make it pop? You can edit the closet by only hanging the cutest clothes to keep the closet looking amazing and not too crammed. If you want to really take your organization up a notch try arranging your books in rainbow order!

Create a Baby Cart

I wish I would’ve thought of this next idea when creating my baby’s nurseries. Stock a rolling cart with all your baby essentials. That way you can roll it wherever you need it. This works well if you’re limited on space and don’t have a dedicated changing area. This’ll give you the flexibility to take care of your baby in whatever space works best for you at the moment.
