For those of you who don’t live in a home grown obstacle course of baby dolls, matchbox cars, and things that go bump in the night (particularly when you’re headed to a crying child’s room at 2am), this article is not for you.
For the rest of us here on earth, we bring you creative decorating solutions to this problem – beautiful, functional storage solutions for a baby nursery or kid’s room.
Take this bookshelf from Crate & Barrel. It is full of colorful and delightful cubbies for toys and various odds and ends. The creatively designed open toy box at the bottom brings you both a toy box and a bookshelf in one piece of furniture. The shelves are positioned such that shorter people can reach their toys and taller people can keep the breakables away from little hands. We can’t help but mention that we love the wallpaper, too!
We like this stars and moon bookshelf as a way to add personality and color to a space themed room. These shelves serve a dual purpose. They can be used as a super cute toddler bench against a wall.
A personalized bookshelf is a great way to bring a more personal angle to your child’s nursery or playroom storage area. The one featured here is from UK retailer The Kids Window. Given this may be harder to find in the US, consider a DIY solution using a basic set of floor or wall shelves and applying wooden wall letters or wall decal letters to decorate the sides.
Finally, this tree bookshelf is precious! Designed by Korean artist Shawn Soh, this piece serves as both a work of art and a functional storage solve.
