A modern nursery is sleek, chic and oh-so-hip.
Making the most of your small space
If you don't have a huge room--or any room at all--for your baby's nursery, use these tips for making the most of your space.
Shop Small. Look for space-saving great, such as a dresser that is tall and skinny (secure it to the wall for safety reasons), a swing that folds easily when not in use and a good closet organizer to maximize your storage space.
Think outside the box. Instead of a traditional crib, consider purchasing a baby hammock, which takes up much less space (and looks super cool).
Before you buy something, think about it: do you really need it? About half the time, the answer will be no. When you are short on space, the necessities will suffice. (there is no rule that says you can not change diapers on the coach, and a simple changing pad can cost less than $20 and take up no space at all.)
Appearance is everything. To make a tiny space look bigger, use bright white paint on the walls and opt for light-colored furniture and decor. For some reason, if it looks bigger, it feels bigger.
