BABY: Making the most of a teeny baby nursery

Boori Nursery Furniture

We're fast approaching Baby Bee's arrival date so we've been spending a lot of time thinking about the nursery and how to make the most of the space we have. We're really lucky in that we have two spare bedrooms, one larger room and a little box room. We've planned to use the larger room as a playroom and the box room as the nursery, which as the little one grows up and we add to our family they will move on from the nursery into the playroom.
As you can probably imagine, the box room is little. So we're having to come up with some clever solutions to ensure we have everything we need, with enough space to actually move.

I've collaborated with Boori* to share some of our space saving ideas and nursery inspiration.

Of course you're going to need a cot, wardrobe and chest of drawers. But let's be honest they themselves take up so much room so utilising the space inside them is vital. Drawer dividers will help you keep bibs, muslins, nappies, creams and socks, to name a just a few things, organised and tidied.

For inside the wardrobe, you can put storage boxes in the base for sleep-bags, blankets and bulky snowsuits and coats. I'm also loving the idea of rail/clothing dividers for age groups so we don't have to store too much in boxes.Though the older age group clothing that we've had donated already are being stored in clear plastic boxes under the bed, probably alongside bulk bought nappies and wipes!

We're also investing in hooks for jackets and to hang clothes ready for the next day. Am loving these ones I found on Pinterest.

As for toy storage, well we all know children accumulate toys like they are going out of fashion. We're very lucky in that we have a gorgeous old wooden chest to use as storage which I've up-cycled with chalk paint. I also really love these cute soft toy swings that not only are great for keeping toys tidy, but also look super sweet. Perfect for a animal themed nursery.

As for the actual furniture Boori has a gorgeous collection called Urbane, which has been specifically designed for smaller spaces with a contemporary and modern design. The six design collection comes in a range of styles and colours, comprising of cots/cotbeds, wardrobes, chest of drawers and dressers as well as a number of accessories to complete your nursery look. I think my favourite from the collection has to be Sunshine, specifically this utterly gorgeous chest of drawers. I love the top shelf which looks perfect for storage baskets to soften the look. I also love the two-tone effect on the Urbane Omni Transformer collection too. It's such a unique look which I haven't really seen before.

What about you? What storage solutions have you, or will you, be setting up for your little one? Share your little nursery ideas in the comments below, and you can see my ideas on my Pinterest boards.
Thanks to Boori for collaborating on this post with me.
