Decorating a small nursery can seem like a huge challenge, especially when you’re preparing for a baby in so many other ways. How will you get everything you need into a space that is compact? Believe it or not, dealing with small space issues isn’t as difficult as you might think, especially in the nursery realm. Why not? Because in many cases, all you really need is a crib, a changing table/dresser and a comfy chair, at least when it comes to substantial pieces.
Below we showcase a series of small nurseries that prove it is possible to maximize your space. All it takes is a few strategic purchases and a little creativity. In addition to the helpful decorating hints below, check out the other design details of each room. Maybe an item or a motif will inspire you in your nursery decorating endeavors. Enjoy!
For your convenience, we’ve organized our featured nurseries by their design style, and we’ve highlighted our decorating tips in bold. We begin with contemporary nurseries that maximize their space! The nursery below adds interest with a bird-and-branch-motif wall that serves as a clever distraction from the room’s small size. Clean-lined furniture ensures that the space looks anything but cluttered. [from Design Public]
When space is scarce and you can’t fill the room with furniture, try filling it with flair. Wall art and murals personalize a space and have the power to leave their mark regardless of the nursery’s size. [from Anita Roll Murals]
The next featured modern nursery showcases the three necessities we mentioned in our opening paragraph: a crib, a changing table (the corner of which is shown at the bottom right of the image below), and a comfy chair. Tie it all together with stylish draperies, and you have a fabulous space that packs a powerful punch. [from 3 Doors Down Home Staging & Interior Design]
