Perhaps the most important event in someone’s life is becoming a parent. Our life changes forever on the arrival of a new born child and it’s only natural to want to give our children the best. Buying a beautiful baby crib for the nursery is top of the list for many parents.
We really are spoilt for choice these days. There are hundreds of beautiful cribs to choose from. They come is all styles, sizes, shapes and budget. If you take the time to look, you can find that perfect piece that will be at the heart of your baby’s nursery.
They come in all shapes and sizes. There are traditional, convertible, bonnet, sleigh and the increasingly popular round crib. Many still prefer the traditional model with a drop side; it’s what we remember from our own childhood. Popular styles like the Jenny Lind have been around for generations and will certainly continue to be many parents’ first choice for generations to come.
Traditional crib is actually a bit of a misnomer as they also come in modern styles that are clean, sleek and simple. Convertible baby bed furniture, because of its inherent functionality, always has a traditional look to it so; the so called, ‘traditional’ model is becoming ‘de rigueur’ for many who love modern styles. The Bellini Isabella is a prefect example of a modern – tough not too modern – looking piece.
Recently, convertible cribs have become incredibly popular. Many like the look of these with their large headboards and strong, dependable looks. They are also a great way of saving money as they can change to accommodate a child as it grows, becoming a toddler bed, day bed and even full size bed. For those who want a traditional looking one, 3-in-1 models are the answer. They look like their traditional cousins and can even come with a storage drawer, but they convert to toddler and day beds.
Lifetime cribs can convert to a full size bed so your child can sleep safely in the same piece of furniture from birth until adulthood. This type of bed also lends itself well to the most lavish of traditional styling. Companies like Munire and Pali make highly detailed and beautiful nursery furniture of exceptional quality. They currently offer styles that remind one of cool breezes of the Caribbean (Munire Antigua); simple styling of American cottage (Pali Carmen Forever); and French rococo (Munire Savannah).
Bonnet cribs are for those who love fabric. The bonnet can match curtains as well as the baby bedding set and will create a unified structure to the design and decor of a child’s nursery. This type is lovely for baby girls, conjuring up a beautiful ‘Princess’ world in the nursery.
The choice of baby cribs is only limited by your imagination. They are the most important element of a nursery. They not only provide a safe environment for your baby, but their design and beauty can give your child a feeling of warmth and security.
