Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! I did try with the recliner in the corner by the window (for DD it was in the corner blocking the closet), but it eats up too much room that way. As for the dresser, yeah I already have the dresser and would like to use it, that was what DH said at first too though "Time to get a new dresser!" so it is a possibility if we really hate the setup. I don't want a tall dresser right next to the cribs though, once they can stand and start reaching for stuff, they are going to pull everything out of it from their cribs! And yeah, for 2 it could be hard to get to the corner crib baby, but I have really long arms and I am tall, so even if the baby scrunched into the corner, I could still reach I think without much trouble. And yeah, I draw in AutoCAD all day long at my job, so when I want to lay something out, it is really nice to have free access to it. I've totally done the build cardboard models of stuff before too
DH likes 1 better and I am ok with it, so I think we'll try 1 first and see how it looks in real life, then maybe 2 if we don't like 1, neither of us liked the wasted space of 3 much. And we don't have cribs yet (since DH broke DD'd old crib the other day) and the measurements I used for the crib were a bigger/bulkier one, so if we can get ones that are a bit smaller (not mini cribs, but some are much less bulky) that would save us a few inches too. I really wish they had put the vent under the window, it would make the space more usable! But if we end up not liking the set ups in real life, I may end up blocking the closet again anyway /shrug and we may want to block the closest once the kids are bigger, I had to when DD got bigger or she was constantly getting in there!
