With the economy the way it is, young couples expecting babies have to make do with what they have and may not be able to move to a larger home right away. When the time comes to add to the family, parents have to get creative and make the best of the space they have, no matter how tiny.
I've rounded up a few of my favorite (miniaturized) items for parents and parents-to-be to fit into even super small nurseries. I'd also love to hear your product suggestions—leave them in the comment section!
1. For all of those books you plan on reading to your little one, plus sliding cubby covers for clothing storage: the compact, District Storage Storage Bookcase from Land of Nod, $199. You can also build levels onto this piece when you have more space.
2. Good air flow is very important for a nursery. This Table Top Fan by Minka from Lightology would also be a great addition to the nursery to keep air flowing and provide white noise. $46.13
3. A teeny, tiny rug for a teeny, tiny space. Love this plush Tejn Faux Sheepskin rug from IKEA, $9.99
4. When you don't have space for a changing station, you can plop this diaper station down on a soft spot on the floor and change away! First Years Deluxe Folding & Go Diaper Station available at Target, $11.99
5. This is my favorite of the "mini" cribs. Big enough to sleep a baby until they are almost two years old (depending on their size), this Babyletto Origami Mini Crib even folds up or travels, $249
6. Want to make your small nursery a bit more homey? Grab some re-positionable Habitat Pattern Wall Tiles from What is Blik, $50 for 4.
