Happy New Year!  I had a lovely Christmas break this year with family and friends but as always Christmas seems to take forever to get here and then when it does it has gone in a flash.  I love the New Year though.  It always motivates me to make changes, take actions, spring clean and clear out!

Usually, due to the size of our little ones, they tend to have the smallest room in the house as their nursery.  What we fail to think about though is the huge amount of 'stuff' that comes with a baby!  If you are lucky enough to fit in a wardrobe, chest, cot and shelving into your nursery that's great, but if not you will undoubtedly be looking for space saving, and storage ideas to make the most out of your space.  Even more so after Christmas and the influx of new toys and clothes your little one will have had!

One of the best ways to store items which I have found is using under cot storage.  This space saving technique takes up no extra room and uses up all of that valuable under cot space!  Due to the narrow depth of space it is usually best for flatter products such as blankets, bedding and clothes.  The Bailey Sleigh Cot bed from Izziwotnot have a great under cot drawer which can be purchased separately for £89.  They are available in a mahogany, oak or white finish.  This under cot storage option is on castors so you can easily pull it out and push back in for easy access.  Also from Izziwotnot the skyline cot bed comes together with an under cot drawer.  This contemporary cot bed is available in a white high gloss lacquer.  Finally, the beautiful Nutkin white sleigh cot bed comes with three useful under cot storage drawers built in and finished with solid antiqued brass flush mounted drawer handles.

Toys can easily be stored in a toy/ blanket box.  The beautiful white toy storage box from the Nutkin range is made from solid ash wood and comes with 3 removable storage boxes as well as two useful drawers.  For handy book storage take a look at the Tidy Books Childrens Bookcase.  This stylish bookcase is slimline and practical allowing a large number of books to be stored facing outwards.  Like under cot storage, wall mounted storage takes up little space and makes a big difference to the look of a room as well as providing useful space!  The nutkin storage unit is perfect as it comes with 5 useful storage compartments and 5 hanging pegs for all those newborn outfits!
