When you're short on space, you have to get creative. Storage is an absolute must, along with furniture that can go double duty. As for your rooms, well...you learn to love the "coziness," once the arguments about whose stuff takes up more room subside.
Add a baby to the mix, though, and a small space quickly feels unlivable due to the sheer amount of stuff that comes with your little one. If a move isn't in your plans, then follow the lead of these apartment-living families, who turned a closet into a nursery. Yes, a closet nursery. It has just enough space for a baby and might be a better use of the space than storing ironic t-shirts from college that you haven't worn in years. Plus, you won't have to move. Convinced? Take a look at the spaces below for inspiration.
