• Living in a small space is challenging in a lot of ways. Picking the right furniture entails going from one shop to another just to look for the perfect fit. Others even have chairs, tables, and beds customized. Keeping it organized means decluttering regularly and working with clever storage solutions. But what if you need to create a special nook for a new member of the family? You can still achieve a cozy nursery with the help of these tips:


    Choose a daybed

    Instead of a large sofa, work with a daybed that can help you save on floor space. With this piece, you can still have enough room in the living area should you plan to place a crib or set up a playpen.


    Be creative with storage

    Consider installing wall-mounted shelves for baby bottles, extra bibs, and other lightweight items. You can also keep bins under the crib for extra diapers, milk cans, and other baby must-haves. Those who need a cabinet, choose a slim piece or stackable cube shelves.


    Add a divider

    Another challenge for small spaces is how to clearly define the different areas at home. If you're creating a nursery in the bedroom or living area, place a chic wooden divider (or one with cute prints) to separate your kid's space from the rest of the home. Doing this also helps you conceal all of the essentials, toys, and other pieces owned by your little angel.
