And then, just about two months later, we found out that a baby was on the way.
We are very interested in having our space work for us--even if's just 1,000 square feet. We threw out different ideas about what do to do: office/nursery, nursery/bedroom, nursery/guest room. We contemplated all the options until we decided on the option that would best fit our needs.
We decided to move the bedroom into the large room + also include a small work area/office in it (this room is massive!).
Then, we'll move all the nursery stuff into the smaller room and also use it as a guest room when people visit (baby will sleep with us!).
We want a separate area for the baby because we want to create a space that will not only be where the little one snoozes but also an area for play and exploration :)
That meant that we spent Saturday moving stuff all over the place (switching your bedroom is hard work!), creating a massive thrift store pile, and organizing the other items to sell. We now have reduced our office items to the bare minimum and have a spacious bedroom. I told Josh that I was okay with having office space in the bedroom, as long as it looked like a bedroom--not an office with a bed! And I think that we definitely achieved that idea :)
Here's what our bedroom looked like on Saturday morning (yikes...clean much, Nicole?)
I promise I'll share what it looks like now very soon--we just need to make a few tweaks :)
Anyone have any suggestions for storage solutions for small spaces?
