Cribs Buying Guide

Selecting a Style for Your Baby's Crib

Since your baby will soon outgrow any “babyish” nursery décor, when decorating your child’s room you might want to plan ahead right from the start. Many expectant parents will choose color palettes and decorating themes that will grow and adapt with their child. Because children are continually developing, flexibility is crucial. Choose a style that will fit their growing needs and requirements.

Traditional cribs feature rich finishes and graceful curves. Classic detailing such as inset panels and scroll accents are reflections of past eras and trends such as the Victorian era. Traditional style also embraces the more orderly influences of Colonial lifestyles and ideals as reflected in Shaker and American Country furnishings

Contemporary and modern cribs are characterized by clean lines and organic elements. They are typified by simplicity of form, line and shape. A contemporary crib is practical yet warm and comfortable. A modern crib would have a more pared down and linear profile. Through its use of materials, shapes and lines, both contemporary and modern style emphasize natural elements that are calming and restful.

Country style furniture retains the period’s flavor of more formal furnishings like French Provincial, English Country or Colonial, but tends to be less ornate. Furnishings of this style are characterized by milk-painted woods, muted colors, simpler lines and a comfortable feel. Casual and unpretentious, a standard crib in a country style with its graceful curves and relaxed detailing, will add a tranquil charm to your nursery.
