Use your closet! Seriously, babies don’t need a lot of hanging space. You could put the computer desk in the closet.

Well You could probably fit something like this with the crib to make it a spare room. Its a converable futon chair.


finding things with double purposes will be your best friend. Install shelves along the top perimeter of the room all the way around so you can store bookes/files/toys etc up there. A few nice baskets will hide the clutter. 

A small desk with storage will likely still fit. If it has wheels it can be stored away behind the chair or some place and slide out when you need it.

Since there is a closet, install a closet organizer and you should be able to fit lots of toys and clothes in the closet. What size closet is it? you can fit a lot in a double wide closet.

Home Improvement stores sell inexpensive DIY ones. something as simple as the below will expand your useable space

I would look up decorating or storage tips for studio apartments on pinterest or something. Obviously the room is going to be much smaller then a studio but they are so creative with using every little space you would probably get some great ideas.

Commenting to follow.

Our nursery-to-be is fairly small and Darling Husband insists on keeping our spare queen size bed in there so we’re also working with about half a room to hold a crib, long dresser, short narrow dresser (like a lingerie chest), glider with ottoman and a small cube shelf. Pretty sure it isn’t actually possible.

I focused on getting a crib with a small footprint.  It also has wheels!  And no corners, so that -in case- I run into something at least I am less likely to trip or get hurt.  In a small space I also think vertical- if I was squeezing a computer in (is that what I gather?) I would use a small, more upright desk for it with a taller chair.  Any bookcase would be on the wall.  Is there really no other place for the computer?  I think I would be irritated by it being in there because of the emfs and small space, not that you cannot make it work.

@pmerr:  So you don’t really have a storage unit?  Bummers.  We have a loft apartment we are making work with baby for the first year, but my storage unit is a GODSEND!  That can make such a huge difference.
