Getting ready for a baby can be one of the most eventful times of your life. Depending upon the day, you might feel excited or downright nervous. But the good news is that nine months gives you a lot of time to prepare for baby, who’s going to need a bedroom stocked with baby furniture and supplies. And fixing up baby’s room is a great way to help you mentally prepare for his or her arrival, not to mention that being prepared will help relieve some of your stress.
If you’re getting a baby’s room ready, you probably know about the basics you’ll need, including a crib, changing table, and nursery chair. Then, once you have the furniture, decorating is the fun part. But what about supplies? Diapers, clothing, toys, and all the other little necessities it’s so easy to forget about during the planning stage. You’re going to need a lot of them, and that takes storage. That’s why your preparations aren’t complete without a closet organizer for baby’s room. A custom-designed nursery room closet from Closet America comes with adjustable shelves can be rearranged as baby grows—preparing your family for the years to come.
Why Your Family Needs a Closet Organizer for Baby’s Room
There are a lot of supplies your baby is going to need that must be stored in the nursery closet. Here’s a quick checklist of items you should add to your baby shower registry if you haven’t already:
Baby clothes, including no-scratch mittens, a fleece suit, onesies, blanket sleepers, front-buttoned sweaters, socks, and booties
Plenty of extra washable crib mattress pads, fitted crib sheets, and light and heavy blankets
A laundry basket
A baby monitor
Clean diapers, diaper cream, soft washcloths, baby wipes, and a diaper trash pail with liners
Nursing pads, a nursing pillow, bibs, pacifiers, and burp cloths
Toys and books
There are plenty of other supplies you will need, such as a car seat and a high chair, but they are not items you’ll store in the nursery closet. All of these items will need their own storage area within the closet where they will be easily accessible whenever you need them. This is especially true of items used for cleaning, such as towels, baby wipes, clean sheets or diapers.
Raising a baby is rewarding but stressful. By installing a custom closet system for the baby’s room, you can stay organized and keep the nursery clean, which makes your life less stressful. After all, the last thing you want to do when your baby is crying—or worse, sick—is dig around through piles of disorganized miscellany to find your child’s favorite toy or blanket.
However, don’t simply buy the first closet organizer you see. Buying a cheap storage system is risky, as shelves may sag, peel or snap over time, and a one-size-fits-all storage system purchased at a major chain store won’t be customized to meet your space and storage needs and may be difficult to properly install without professional carpenters. And you can’t take the risk of having a storage system come crashing down when your curious toddler investigates it. Instead, look for a quality custom closet organizer for the baby’s room that will have a place for all of your baby’s supplies and clothes and will have the layout of your choice. It should be made of durable materials that have been securely installed. No matter if the nursery closet is a walk-in or reach-in closet, here are some of the features your organizer can include:
Soft-close drawers that won’t make noise that can wake the baby
Closet islands and peninsulas that offer extra counter and storage space
Adjustable shoe shelves, which are handy as your child grows up
Chrome laundry hampers with removable liners
Accessory and jewelry storage
Valet rods for preparing your baby’s outfit in advance
Durable, attractive hardware
Dovetail drawer boxes
Leg levelers and hidden wall supports for safety
Floor-standing designs that add stability
Hidden wall supports
Thick, no-peel edge banding
