My favorite part of preparing a baby’s room is finding nursery organization ideas that will work with the space in mind.
Whether you’re working with a small nursery, setting up the baby’s room in the master bedroom, or you don’t know where to start – finding a place for all of baby’s stuff is completely doable!

1. Use Vertical Space
My top tip for any expecting mother is to use up all the vertical space you have in baby’s nursery, especially if you’re working with a small space.
Using photo ledges to store and display all of baby’s books is a great way to do this.
It doesn’t take up as much room as a traditional bookshelf and you’re able to display all the books cover out, so you can grab a book easily.

2. Be Creative with Furniture
I love using rolling carts in any nursery!
My favorite way to use them is for the changing station. You can store all of baby’s diapers, creams and wipes in it. You can simply roll it over to wherever you’re changing baby and roll it out of the way when you’re done.
3. Changing Table Essentials
One important aspect of a nursery is gathering all your changing table essentials in one place. You’ll want to make sure you have it all organized, so you can find what you need quickly.
I like to group like items together. You can store everything in drawer dividers in a drawer or utilize the vertical space above the changing table.
4. Back of the Door Space
Another clever idea is to use the back of the nursery or closet door to store baby’s stuff.
I like this above over-the-door organizer to store cloth diapers, swaddles, baby blankets, etc.
The door rack organizer above is my absolute favorite storage tool in my home.
I utilize these in almost every room in my house. You can store so many baby essentials in it and it doesn’t take up any room.
5. Remember the Little Things
When finding a place for all of baby’s belongings, remember the little things too – like hair bows, pacifiers and teethers.
For example, I love finding creative ways to store baby hair bows like the above macrame hair bow organizer!
6. Sort and Store
Having a system where you can sort like items together and store them efficiently is key to any organized space.
You can do this in a nursery dresser by using drawer dividers.
This allows you to always have a birdseye view of baby’s clothes, teethers, lotions, etc. It also creates more room in each drawer, which is essential if you’re working with a small nursery.
