Put Baby in the Closet: 15 Lovely Converted Closet Nurseries

By Jaime Morrison Curtis |

Nobody puts baby in a corner. But the closet? As my husband and I ponder baby number two, the question of space keeps coming up. Our two-bedroom home already houses three people, a dog, a cat, and a turtle – where would we put a new addition? We do have a lot of big closets, and the thought of converting one into a nursery has crossed my mind. To get inspired, I hunted down 15 creative nurseries built into closets. These closet nurseries make the most of small space and have lots of little details to keep the rooms cozy but still feeling open. Check out these 15 Cool & Creative nurseries in converted closets and get inspired…

    Still trying to understand the double decker, cause from what I see there is a crib 6 ft in the air? How do they get a baby in there and what happens when the baby climbs out of the crib for the first time? SPLAT!? ummmmmm

  2. jessica says:

    Ok I read further, I see how they get it in and out but that doesn’t help with the baby pancake they’re gonna have!

  3. Jessica says:

    I think the 2 babies one with the clothes above is tacky and hazard with them just hanging above the cribs. Don’t know how old pic is, but if they moved those away from cribs, it would look much better.

    Dont have anymore rooms and too many kids? throw them in a cluttered closet! Just like criminals except criminals get more room , proper ventilation, a window and dont have clothing/clutter hanging over there heads plus no door to shut them out when there noisy just bars ..smh wow is our economy so bad that parents would rather stay in a one bedroom apt and stick there children in closets like clutter instead of upgrading when new additons are added to the family ? Get a job and afford the children a proper room or get your prioritys strait ! A 3 bedroom house/apt , bunk beds 1 bedroom for boys another for girls and 1 for the parents and newborn… Id never put my child in a closet like some forgotten clutter.

    As a mother myself I must say I saw some pretty neat ideas on here…. I dont agree with Ren about it being poor parenting. My home is for sale we are trying to upgrade to a more spacious home but because if the economy it doesn’t look promising. We are looking into other options for making the most of what we have.

    This seems like the worst idea in the history of ideas. In fact, several of those rooms are not even legal. If child protective services knew they would take the children from those parents. Most states have a law that a child is to have a minimum of 35 square feet each. Sticking two kids in a closet surely violates that law. Sure if the child is your natural child and not a foster child it’d be harder for the state to know, but I’d have to have a knife to my back if I put my child in a closet like that.

  7. Jojo says:

    Parents: keep in mind, legal bedrooms MUST have two exits, that means a door and a window. Putting the crib tucked into a closet without doors leaves the room open for more space, but walk in closets are a no-no because they lack a second exit. Safety first, people!
