Nursery Floor Plan

The biggest challenge in the nursery is arranging the small space and maximizing the potential. How do we fit the necessary furniture in here? Even if it’s just a crib, a small rocking chair and a dresser - it’s still a tight squeeze with the doors and radiator. It’s not easy in a 11’x7’ bedroom!

This is the floor plan we decided on. The dresser will go on the same wall as the closet, it’s low and wide so we can put a changing pad on top and have it serve double-duty. We can open the door to the room fully and still  have room for a diaper pail without blocking the closet. The crib will go on the opposite wall (approximately where the couch was), leaving room by the door for the rocking chair. We are also planning to add a floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcase along the wall with the window, which should help increase the amount of storage for toys and books and things.

I’ve also marked where the accent wallpaper wall will go, the gallery wall of framed woodland animal prints, and the pocket shelves. Of course this might change as everything comes together, but it’s nice to have a plan in place.
