Utilize wall space

This nursery (spotted on Apartment Therapy) saves closet space by hanging baby's clothes under wall shelves.

Add an accent

Dark accent walls can give the illusion of depth in a smaller room. For more photos from this nursery, visit the blog Little Green Notebook.

Embrace white space

We love this calming, gender-neutral nursery from Chic Cheap Nurseries. White wall shelves with plenty of space between them draw the eye up and make the room feel bigger.

Rethink the space

How creative is this idea? Turning a closet into a crib nook can save tons floor space (plus, it's cozy!). For more alternative closet ideas, visit Apartment Therapy.

Get reflective

This big, beautiful mirror could almost make you forget you're in a tiny room. Visit Apartment Therapy for more tips on using mirrors in small spaces.

Keep it light

When in doubt, you can't go wrong with a simple, light-colored nursery like this one from The Style Files. Even though this room is narrow, it feels airy and open.
