Diaper tables are essential in any nursery. But what do you do if you really don’t have the space for this large piece of furniture? It’s simple. Install a foldaway diaper table instead. This idea might seem a bit scary but with the right fixtures, it is absolutely safe for your little one.
You simply have to fold it out when you need it and fold it back when it’s not in use. And since you don’t need to spend money on an actual diaper table, you can invest in pieces like a crib or a compact rocking chair.

Diapers, baby powder bottles, baby wipes, bags, and linens can all be stored below your baby’s crib. Organize everything in shallow plastic bins so you can slip them under easily. Just purchase a crib skirt to keep everything out of sight.

Tiny babies also mean tiny clothes so you really don’t need a closet or dresser for their things. Save the money and the space by installing rods instead. It gives you room to move around and makes everything accessible. For smaller items like socks, mittens, or hats, you can also hang bins with S hooks onto the rods.

Regular shelves will not work for a tiny space—you risk bumping into its sharp corners whenever you move around---opt for picture ledge shelves instead. These narrow shelving units are perfect for putting books, picture frames, and small toys on display—creating that whimsical feel in the room.
