28 White Cribs: Child Esthetics

From the first days of baby’s life the second place to spend most of time after your cozy hands is the crib.

Newborn child sleeps about 15-18 hours a day, so it is incredibly important to choose the right cot. As you want child furniture to be as practical, as it is beautiful, let’s also examine the perspective of its look in the nursery.

It is believed that white color of the cot is the most suitable for a baby of any gender. It symbolizes the purity and innocence of a child. It doesn’t irritate the child’s eye that has seen not so much of surrounding world. Also, it blends with most of interior styles and goes well with any color. We all want the best for our children, so why can’t we combine esthetics and usability?

Color & Design

Modern designers provide quite composed color palette for nursery. Usually, white cots are combined with pastel color palette like peachy, creamy, yellow, grey, flamingo pink, mint, pink gold and blue.

Use your imagination, and decide which color passes specifically to your baby. White looks especially soft with triple color compilations: pink and mint green, yellow and grey, ivory and blue.

Among patterns zig-zag and polka dots are the most popular. If you think white to be very simple and boring try to add colorful accents and different pattern to the cradle bedding, and you’ll see that white only helps to emphasize the pattern and color and freshens the other colors.

You can garnish your nursery with baby photos, different pictures, even storages can be an element of décor.

White cribs adjust almost to all the interior styles as the white comes in ivory, creamy, bone, bright white, beige. Contemporary designs prefer brighter white tincture, when in traditional and luxury ones silver and ivory shades are popular.

They are available on the carved legs and casters, with drawers or long bedding – it depends on what is closer to you. Drawers of color other than white brighten the baby furniture and make the cot more functional. Canopy can be used in girls’ nurseries of glam chic. If you want something exclusive, order a carved ivory crib to add luxury and preciousness.

It is a myth that you should spend oceans of money only on the cradle. You don’t have to buy a cot for each period of baby’s life. You can choose convertible and portable beds that transform into a day bed, than to a toddler and twin bed. Their drawback is a high price, but it is better not to pay twice and avoid further problems.

Pragmatism

Take into account variants where the bed base can be regulated for different heights.

On the first 6 months of life an infant is not as active, so the basement can be placed higher. But when baby’s curiosity may influence the safety, use cribs with panels at least 25 inches.

Modern assortment provides different safety means, for example beddings and casings so children don’t damage teeth and can’t go out of the cradle when they shouldn’t.

Panels can be removed when the child has grown enough to move independently. Pick a crib with storage beneath, so the space is utilized and it doesn’t simply collect the fug. If this variant is not for you, use bedding as the décor element and garnish it with ruffs, bows, pleats and ribbons.

Space

If you have small room or apartment – don’t worry your child would be comfortable in portable crib that can be folded when you need more space. Such cribs in most cases have casters so it is easy to move it from room to room. White color of the cot will be suitable regardless of room you are in, as it is universal.

Material

The preference in material is given to the wood. It provides air circulation and is easy to transform, paint and it comes in many variations.

Eco-wood is used in modern style nurseries. Iron cots are beautiful and common in shabby-style and chic nurseries mostly for girls. They are usually hard to transform, but they are solid and safe. For posh designs upholstered wooden cribs are provided even with canopy.

The less common crib form is a round one, because it hardly suits the modern styled nurseries and is not convertible. However, children deserve to have something as unique as they are. It is important that the white paint should be hypoallergenic. Your baby is a little part of you, so make sure the cradle has comfortable mattress and no harsh lines.
