Designing Your Baby’s Dream Room
Having a baby can be one of the most exciting times in your life. There are so many things to do to get ready for your new baby, and creating the nursery is one of the most important and exciting tasks for parents-to-be. Designing a nursery in which your baby will be comfortable, safe, and secure is of primary importance to expecting parents. A canopy crib can be one of the nicest pieces of furniture that you can add to your baby’s new room and it will truly help to create a beautiful and comfortable space for your new bundle of joy.
If you are looking to create a fairytale fantasy for your little one, then a beautiful crib with beautiful baby girl bedding or baby boy bedding can offer you exactly what you are looking for. It is one of the more unique ways to go and will offer a special area for your prince or princess to sleep. Additionally, many of these cribs offer the advantage of doubling as a future bed as well.
A Bit of History
In the past, most of those who owned a canopy baby crib were royalty, nobility, or other people of great wealth. Those who bought this type of crib wanted the nursery to look like a palace. Ordinary folks generally would not consider, or could not afford, this type of crib.
What is a Canopy Crib?
For starters, canopy cribs typically have four posters which support a canopy structure. Fabric is draped over this structure above where your baby sleeps. This type of crib offers a great deal of elegance and style. Canopy cribs are most often made out of various types of wood, such as cherry, yet they are also available in other materials, such as wrought iron. They can be found in a range of different styles and shapes, including the traditional rectangular crib shape and a more dramatic round shape.
Are They Safe?
Yes, a canopy crib is safe. You do not have to worry that the crib canopy fabric will fall on your baby while he or she is sleeping. Once the canopy is attached to the structure, the only way for it to come down is for you to take it down.
Designing your Baby’s Room
Ultimately, you’ll want to create a soothing and peaceful atmosphere for your baby’s nursery. In general, cool colors such as greens or blues, will help to create a calm, peaceful environment for your little one. Warm colors, on the other hand, lend to a warm and comforting environment. In addition, for your baby bedding, there are numerous nursery themes to choose from on the market today, or you can customize a look that is completely unique to your baby.
If you decide on a canopy crib, the easiest and best way to design your nursery is to use the crib as the focal point in the room and work from there. There are so many choices in baby bedding and the crowning touch–the crib canopy can be as unique as your new baby.
Additionally, look for furniture that serves more than one purpose–such as a dresser that doubles as a changing table.
Where Can You Find a Canopy Crib?
You can find canopy cribs in various department stores and in baby specialty stores. However, for a larger selection of all types of cribs, baby girl bedding or baby boy bedding, and canopies, shopping online is the way to go. This is because online stores can easily offer a larger selection of baby furniture than brick and mortar stores due to the fact that they are not limited in their showroom space. The same holds true if you want to view a larger selection of crib canopy styles and baby bedding.
So decide on the type of crib you’d like for your new baby and design a beautiful, functional nursery around your crib of choice!
