Beauty and comfort - canopies for baby cots
A new member of the family appeared, so small and long-awaited. Changes and material expenses are coming. A stroller, a cot, clothes, a high chair for feeding. But there are some accessories, not so necessary, but not from the point of view of moms. Baldachins for a crib seem to them a symbol of a peculiar chic, comfort and coziness. Only men can talk about their uselessness.
In general, this element of the interior from the ancient East came to us. He was given a very important function: the canopy guarded the sacredness of the box, emphasized the honor of the sheltered place, and further protected from sight and dust.
Why you need a canopy on a cot
Photos show a smart curtain over the baby's crib. Yes, it's beautiful. But after all, the canopy plays a protective role: from dust, drafts, light and unwanted glances. He protects the baby from the outside world, for him he is calm. It is not in vain that the opinions of psychologists agree that the established canopy on the crib contributes to the proper development and development of the child's psyche.
In addition to all of the above, it contributes to the harmonization of space. After all, often the emptiness of rooms carries a certain discomfort, a sense of anxiety. And if the bedroom is furnished with only one bed, canopies for a baby cot are able to highlight the area for sleeping and remove discomfort. The bed will turn into a small sheltered island. With the help of a canopy it is convenient to fence a sleeping area in a common room or living room.
The differences are in the way of fastening. Some of them cover only the headboard, protecting from sunlight and performing a decorative function. But there are models that are attached to the center. Most often canopies for a crib are installed on a pole attached to the crib and at the end equipped with a semicircle or circle.
Length also varies. The small version is less functional than the average one. However, too long a curtain interferes under your feet and is confused.
What material should I take
If you decide to make a canopy on your own, you can use an air organza for this. For a room heavily lit by the sun, cotton, a denser fabric, is suitable. Velvet is recommended to use only to keep the heat, if the room is cold or strong. In any case, whatever material you choose, it should be natural. Synthetics poorly passes air. For the girl, according to tradition, pink shades are chosen, for the boy - blue, but white color is also suitable.
However, you need to know that the canopy for a crib can not protect a child from insects. Many parents equate them with a mosquito net and are not puzzled by the destruction of flying mosquitoes in the room. It is not right. From mosquitoes, the delicate skin of the baby should be protected by other, no less known means, for example including harmless fumigators.
Still it is necessary to recognize, that the baldachin is a kind dust collector. Of course, it will often have to be washed, but the fact that the dust turns out to be not in the bed, but on the fabric of the canopy.
