When choosing new window treatments for children’s rooms, you will need to pay attention to more than just privacy, style, and light control. Safety issues should come first when making decisions for the decor of your child’s room. The following is a list of factors to keep in mind when picking out curtain, drapes, shades, or other window treatments for a kid’s room.
- In the room of a young child, long curtains should be avoided. Children, especially toddlers, have a tendency to pull on curtains. This can pose a danger to both your child and your window treatment.
- In a child’s room, or in other rooms where your child will frequently spend time, avoid beads, trim, and other small embellishments, as young children might swallow these small pieces.
- Be sure that cords and other parts of your window treatments are kept away from beds and cribs so that your child will not pull on and play with them.
- Picking curtains or other treatments that allow for as much environmental control as possible are especially important for children’s bedrooms. Window treatments with blackout capabilities are best for children’s rooms because they will allow for an adequately dark room during nap time or early morning. Of course, you’ll want window treatments that are versatile so that your child’s room can be bright and cheery during playtime.
- Simplicity and durability window treatments are best for a child’s room. By purchasing something that is long-lasting as well as able to keep up with the changes your child’s room might have over time, you won’t have to buy new window treatments for quite a while.
By keeping these factors in mind when shopping, you will be able to decorate your child’s room in a way that they love, while giving you peace of mind in knowing that you have made decisions with safety in mind.
