Whether you live in an apartment with limited space, or you have a large family with kids already overflowing out of every room, a lack of space forces us to get creative when it comes time to set up the nursery. On the running theme of twins today, I was inspired to write this post after visiting our friends down in Riverside, CA. When they first found out they were having twins they knew that their 2 bedroom condo was going to be very crowded, very soon. Not to mention the fact the twins on the way gave grandma that extra excuse she needed to call that second bedroom home. So what did they do? They got creative and moved the Master Bedroom into the living room. When I heard this I was thinking, huh? Seriously, how are they going to do that? Well, it wasn’t until last month that I saw the conversion and I was floored. It may sound crazy, but they did an incredible job. Contrary to my initial thought that their guests would feel uncomfortable coming over and sitting in the “bedroom” to visit, I felt so welcome and comfortable in their home. By simply adding a few panels for drapery the room was transformed into a cozy Master/Nursery/Kitchen/Living Room. Is that possible? Yes, and it is incredible. You guys did an amazing job, and it just proves that sometimes compromise, creativity, and love is all it takes to create the perfect sanctuary for your new babes.
Here are a few other nurseries showing how parents can turn the tiniest spaces into the sweetest of places…
