We decided on a mini crib for obvious size constraints. The babyletto grayson was our pick. The style is clean and simple and has proven to be quite sturdy. I had big dreams of turning one of our closets into a nursery until measurements proved that all our closets were too small (oh tiny living!).
One added benefit of a mini crib is it fits pack and play sheets which tend to be cheaper and take up less storage space. I had visions of packing it away when not in use but turns out that is not something you have the time or energy to do when a new baby takes all your time (seriously the days fly by with no tangible tasks completed).
