I'm early on with my first, too early to truly be planning nurseries, but this is something that has been on my mind a lot lately.
Our nursery is essentially 8x8 not counting the closet. I do want it to be 'decorated' if definately not themed. I have a floor to ceiling closet organizer in the closet in that room, so I'm not as worried about storage and function so much as the room just looking unbalanced and unfinished.
This is a photo of the room as it basically currently stands:
That's looking in from the doorway, to the right the whole wall is the closet, so I can't put anything in front of it. The crib I want is 4.5x2.5 feet, and the glider I want is 3.5x3.5. That's all I technically *need* in the room, but with only two pieces of furniture I just see it looking silly. I want to do something to balance it out and make it look done, without adding extra cost and clutter.
The nursery below is something similiar in feel to what I want, open and breezy, while still feeling homey and comfortable. Suggestions? If I put a dresser in the room that's even big enough for a change pad on top I'm worried it'll look cluttered. The best I can come up with is maybe a small bookshelf?
Suggestions, or even better, photos, of put together, small nurseries that aren't all crammed in?
