Shopping for baby nursery bedding can be an exciting task in a parent’s life – especially if this is your very first child. In the stores, you’ll find modern crib sets, crib bedding, crib furniture sets and so much more to choose from.
Before you set out on your shopping adventure, think about the style you want for the baby room. Do you have a boy or a girl? Many crib sets are designed for a specific gender – baby boy crib bedding and girl crib sets – but there are neutral designs available as well. You can coordinate around a certain color, pattern, animal, character or sports theme. Do you want a calm or vibrant feel in the baby’s environment? Classic sets, such as polka dots and stripes, are a safe bet and won’t likely be something you grow tired of too quickly.
Don’t forget to think about how the crib sets will match with your baby’s bed. Light pinks and blues tend to look better with white furniture, while warm, rich colors blend well with dark baby furniture. For round baby cribs, you can also find special sets to fit that style of bed.
Most crib sets come with four pieces:
- fitted sheet
- crib bumper
- crib skirt
Extras are often sold separately, but can be a great addition to complete the look for your nursery. Consider a matching baby product for the room such as a diaper stack, window covering, mobile, wall decor, lamp, blanket, hamper and a rug. Be careful not to go overboard with matching items. You can keep a consistent look with subtlety – accent colors, complementary patterns, a relevant quote scripted on the wall.
Prices vary depending on where you shop. You can find deals from around $40 to over $200 for designer brands, such as Cotton Tale crib sets. Check out an online baby depot or department stores near you. You’ll definitely be saving money with this deal rather than buying everything separately. Plus – all your items will be perfectly matched.
