1.Thoughtfully arranged LAYOUT
A well thought out floor plan is key to an organized baby room. A great nursery layout will be practical, functional and allows you to take care of baby's need efficiently. For example, the nursing nook should be positioned where you can sit and watch the baby when she's sleeping or the changing table should be placed where you can quickly reach it after picking baby up from the crib.
A functional and organized baby room will have designated zones/stations for sleeping, diapering, nursing and playing. It keeps the nursery organized and clutter free.
3.DESIGNATE A SPACE FOR EVERYTHING
When taking care of a baby, it much easier if you know where everything is in the baby's room. So assign each item in the baby's room a place where it belongs. Grouping similar items makes it easier to find something and also when it's time to put things away.
4.UTILIZE SPACE UNDER THE CRIB
Why not make use of the valuable space under the crib in the baby's room? Use this space to store baby's blankets or toys. Keep the space neat and organized by using storage boxes.
