A baby's room can get cluttered fast, especially if it is the first child since everyone goes nuts with gift giving for the first baby a couple has. One of the hardest things is keeping all of that stuff organized so that it isn't always all over the floor and underfoot. There a several things that you can do to keep the nursery uncluttered that will not interfere with your design plans for the room.
One of the things that you will want to do is look at storage bins that are available on rollers or casters. You really can't beat these, some of them even come with a changing table built in on top of them. It is really easy to just add a decorative piece of cloth that will match the nursery and hide the fact that the storage bin is really a utility cart. The cool thing about the storage carts with wheels is that they are easy to move around and can be easily updated and changed as the child grows up.
Another great option is the under the crib variety of storage unit. These types of storage bins can be found almost anywhere and will easily slide under the crib to keep it out of site. This is also a great place to store the baby clothes that don't fit yet so that they are out of site. If you have a crib skirt it will hide the bin as well, if not you can always buy bins that have colors that match the theme of the nursery.
The majority of new parents these days will have a changing table that will hold a variety of your baby's needs as well as diapers. You can come up with a lot of decorative and fun ideas to make the changing table a nicely styled storage space. These will easily fit under the crib or in any small space. The best thing to do is have an array of bins that will hold anything from diaper creams, teething supplies, baby towels, and more. This way you not only have a matching piece of furniture but also something functional.
I know if you have a baby you also have tons of stuffed animals, everyone does. If someone can't think of a good gift to buy they will usually buy a stuffed animal so you end up with stacks of them. Most people want to keep them as keepsakes for when they get older. One thing that is cool is using a hammock that you can throw them all in and hang in a corner. It looks great and can easily be moved down so they can reach it as they get older. This also adds a great decoration to the room and it's a must have for keeping down clutter.
