Best for Kids

Your children’s safety is our top priority!

There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the right window treatments for your child’s bedroom or nursery, including style, size, and color to name a few. It may seem like an overwhelming task to create a room that is pleasing to the eye while also being functional and safe. However, it is important to know that blinds can be a great choice for your child’s room. But what makes the right window treatment for kids? Well, we have created the cheat sheet to help you.

Go Cordless!

Cordless blinds are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. For starters, they are more convenient. There will be no need to bother with a cord or make sure it is out of the way to avoid getting it tangled in furniture. They are safer for your pets, too. There will not be anything hanging from a window that is swaying back and forth to catch their attention.

So whether you go for a motorized configuration or one with a simple lift-and-lower feature, cordless blinds will also be much easier to operate, and can even be safely operated by kids. There are many cordless options to choose from, and many of them are affordable. The two most common types of cordless blinds are motorized and lift-and-lower. A motorized blind will come with a remote control, so you can operate it from a distance. A lift-and-lower will have a handle that allows you to manually lift and lower the shade.

Choose Durable and Easy to Clean

Let’s face it, kids cannot be expected to be gentle on things they handle, and window treatments are no exception. Especially if you have children who see blank walls as an invitation to be creative and artsy, you want your window coverings to be both durable and easy to clean. For a nursery or playroom, durable and easy-to-clean window treatments are essential.

There are many window treatments that fit the criteria, but the easiest to recommend are the ones made of either faux wood or smooth fabrics — the ones that can most withstand children’s hands and be dusted or wiped down with a damp cloth. Roman shades or roller shades absolutely shine in this area. They have motorized and cordless options too and come in a range of designs that can match a room’s playful décor. Best of all, they are easy to clean and maintain.

Room-Darkening or Blackout Options Are Essential

After safety, the quality of your child’s sleep should be the next thing to consider. For this reason, their room could have a room-darkening or blackout option. In other words, the quality of a child’s sleep may improve if the room is dark enough. Therefore room-darkening and blackout shade options are necessary for a nursery or a toddler’s bedroom. Since they can darken the room enough to keep the light out both during the day for naps and in the early hours of the morning when sleep is at its lightest.

Go For Timeless Designs

Because window treatments are an investment, make sure the ones you choose can last a long time. When choosing the best blinds for children’s rooms, consider how the room will be used long term, and keep in mind that it’s normal for a child’s room to go through significant changes as they get older.

Remember, their needs will change as they age, and so will their tastes. What was once a suitable room for a ten-year-old boy might not be any more for a 15-year-old. So, while neon pink might be a fun color for a window covering while they are young, they might hate it in a few year’s time. When in doubt, stick to neutral colors such as grey or white, or just avoid loud and bold ones. If you have older children who want to participate in the design of their rooms, select a few pre-approved swatches and give them the final say.
