Are you excited for the arrival of your newest family member? Expecting a child is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful as you work to get your home ready. Often, the nursery is the first place parents start. However, after painting the room and buying the appropriate decorations, how do you get the rest of the room ready? Organizing the closet would be the next step. If you’re ready to get started organizing your nursery closet, here are a few ideas.
A great place to start on your nursery closet organization is to invest in closet dividers. After your baby shower, you will notice how many clothes you have in different sizes. This can quickly become a mess if you aren’t ready for it. Closet dividers help you keep clothes organized by size, better allowing you to keep a clean nursery closet. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, you can download these adorable nursery closet dividers by clicking on the images above. Print the nursery closet dividers on cardstock so that they last.
In addition to closet dividers, you can use storage tubs to help organize your baby’s clothes. If there is a size that your child won’t wear for awhile, keep it in a storage tub. You can label the tubs by size and season to help make it easier to pull out when your child is ready for those clothes.
After you have your baby’s clothes organized, you can get started on those small items, such as socks, shoes and any hair accessories. A great way to organize these items is to invest in some baskets. You can easily find baskets with fun prints that match your nursery’s décor. To take your organization to the next level, you can use fun shelving units to store your baskets.
Store your baby’s swaddling blankets, quilts, change pad covers and other nursery textiles by folding them, sorted, in a hanging organizer in the closet. You can find ones meant for a nursery that allow clothing to be hung from the rod above still so they do not take up very much closet space while creating much more storage.
