Creative ideas please :)

My soon to be daughters room isn't all that big. Once we get the crib and glider in there, there's really not room for a dresser without looking like things are really really squished. We're not doing a changing table, I find them a waste of money, so I'm trying to think of a creative way to store her clothes. There is a small closet, but who wants to hang baby clothes lol. Does anyone have a space efficient way they stored their infants clothes, yet the clothes were still organized and easily accessible?

  • How about one of those hanging organizers? Or even a couple of them. The cubby holes are just the perfect size for little clothes and you can take them down whenever you like.

  • You could put simple shelves on the wall in the closet and just fold the clothes and stack them.. and then hang the dresses, and things like that!

  • put hooks on the hall for extra space, get some of those stacking cubes for clothes, hang what you need in the babys room and if can maybe hang some things like in a hallway closet like jackets, shoes, etc. stuff you might only need now and then. If room maybe store some things in the bathroom like towels, etc. Maybe ask places like home depot, lowes, or even menards ideas.

  • Look up that rolling drawer thingy that goes under the crib... don't see why a "tall" dresser wouldn't work

  • You could always keep the clothes in your closet or dresser. It's not really esential to have the clothes in the baby's room since (s)he won't be picking out clothes to wear for a while. You could always switch rooms with your baby, I know most adults don't like having the smaller room but if you think about it, you probablly need much less room than your baby. another idea, you could get a crib that has a dresser underneath. The crib is already inhabiting that space so the built in dresser would only take up more vertical space. If you can't buy another crib or don't want to, there are stackable plastic drawers that come in all shapes and sizes. You can get them at walmart. And you would be able to put them under the crib. It would also be a good idea to use the small closet to either hang the clothes or add most of the plastic pull outs. Baby clothes aren't very big so they shouldn't occupy too much space.
