When it comes to storage options in your new baby room, you will come to realise that you can never have enough places to store your baby necessities.
Between baby clothes, products, nappies and countless other important items, you need to ensure that your new nursery becomes a clever storage haven, and Dream Furniture has a number of excellent baby furniture and accessory options to convert the room into the perfect place to store all of the necessary baby bits and bobs.
Here are a few ideas that will help you to prepare the best possible baby room from a storage perspective.
Compactum is key: The traditional changing table is little more than that, a table. But investing in a compactum which serves as both the changing table and storage area is a great idea. The compactum may include drawers or cupboard space, depending on the design that you prefer, but a great deal can be stored in the compactum, keeping it nearby in a convenient place.
Shelving to make use of wall space: By installing shelves on the walls of your baby room, you can make use of the space that would otherwise go to waste. Whether your shelves are used to display decorative items or to keep often-used baby necessities within reach, shelving is a smart way to use the full area available within a baby room while also providing additional decorative options.
Hook it up: Making the most wall space is not restricted to shelves. Walls are perfect places to consider nursery accessories such as hooks, especially for clothing or play items which are frequently used in your little one's daily routine. Hooks can also be used to add colour or conform to a theme within a nursery, as themed hooks and other accessories are all the rage.
Cupboards and wardrobes: Tall cupboards can also be a good idea, as they provide the storage you need, without compromising width space in your baby's room. It is important to remember that tall furniture needs to be secured to a wall with a bracket.
Other spaces that go unnoticed and unused: Clever storage in areas such as under cots and above cupboards means making use of space that would typically not be used at all. On top of your compactum, a nursery accessory such as a caddy could be used to neatly store little items. Caddies in various themes or colours are available for rooms belonging to any baby, whether parents wish for them to be little fairy princesses or mini racing car drivers.
