You’ve been spending day and night making sure the nursery is ready for your new baby. Now that your friends have showered you with gifts, its time to turn your attention to the closet. Here are our favorite tips for organizing a nursery closet!
Organize by Size
Infants go through sizes at lightning speed. Which makes organizing their clothes a special situation. Homedit suggests you section the clothes.
First things first, sort through your baby’s clothes. From Newborn to 12 months, you’ll need to grab some closet dividers and get started placing each onesie and outfit into the right spot. This will make it easier for mom to find the right sizes and make it so you use all those gorgeous outfits before baby outgrows them!
We recommend hanging as much as you can. It’s much easier to see what you have when the items are hung by size in the closet. Once clothing gets put in a drawer it can easily get covered or shoved to the back. You don’t want to miss out on some of your favorite outfits because you can’t see them!
Babies come with so many teeny tiny accessories. Bibs, hats, socks, shoes, pacifiers…oh my. A Night Owl Blog suggests adding baskets to drawers to organize those items.
You can use baskets in drawers to make organization easier! I grabbed shallow baskets that are making our top drawer much less of a mess. They’re great for corralling baby socks, hats, lovies and more!
Shelf It Up
If you have shelves in your closet you can use them to store a plethora of items. Stuffed animals, blankets, and clothes that are too big or too small. You will be able to find plenty of ways to utilize the shelf space in your baby’s closet.
Shelves are another great place to utilize baskets. They can hold items that are difficult to corral and keep things looking nice and clean. Put larger baskets or bins on the floor to hold stuffed animals or toys. So you know, baskets can hold babies too. All the toys will probably end up on the floor with a baby in the basket. That’s just the way life with children goes.
Don’t Forget the Design
Your nursery is the most adorable space in your house. Why shouldn’t the nursery closet be just as lovely? Project Nursery reminds us to remember the design elements when pulling together a nursery closet.
Sleek shelves, full-sized dressers, adorable baskets and bins are accentuated with wallpaper, artwork and even rugs. Watch out teeny tiny baby clothes, you may have trouble competing with these stellar inside-the-closet designs.
