Built-in Baby Closet Ideas
How can you not crush on this gorgeous nursery closet?! It even has a built-in dresser!
You’ll either need a VERY handy husband OR a custom cabinetry person for this project, but I do love that you could save some space on your nursery room floor by putting the dresser drawers in the closet.
Then you could get a fancier, open changing table… something like this one.
This simple, all-white closet works for either gender and the open shelving is definitely cheaper than purchasing drawers.
However, the cost of baskets can add up, so unless you already have quite a few extra, it may come out to around the same price as using drawers.

Freestanding Nursery Closet Ideas
Does the room you’re using for the nursery not have it’s own closet? If so, a freestanding baby closet would be perfect!
The closet system below stands on it’s own which means it’s not drilled into the wall behind it.
If you’re renting a home this is a great idea because you can take it with you one day.
This is one of my favorite closets because of the pull out drawers. Even cooler that they have glass fronts so you can see what’s in them.
Not to mention, this mama has THE cutest nursery closet decor. This level of organization makes my heart happy!

I feel like it’s always pretty closets for baby girls that get the love, but this mountain theme for a baby boy is oh so cute. The rustic vibe makes it feel and look a little bit different.
Creative Hanging Ideas
Finally, for all of you looking for ideas for a small nursery closet… I love this creative use of the side wall for storing and displaying accessories (bows in this case).
She hung towel rods and purchased little clips to hang them.
