When decorating a room for your kid you can play with colours and style. Still, it is important that the room matches your kid’s personality and that you pick a theme that brings the whole room together. Finding the right window treatment also plays an important role in decorating your child’s room. It is one of the finishing touches where you can showcase your creativity and create balance in the whole room. Here are a couple of tips for window treatment in your kid’s room.
Match the Fabric with Other Accessories
One of the things you must have in mind when decorating your kid’s room is that you have to keep balance in the design. So when choosing the pattern for your window covering, you consider which pattern there is on the bedding, pillows and walls and pick the one that will match them. For example if all the accessories in a girl’s room are pink, you can get baby pink window covering. For a boy’s room, you can combine blue coverings with turquoise accessories.
Always use Bright Colors
This is a rule that does not only apply to window coverings. Kids love bold colors and therefore their rooms should be as colourful as possible. It is always advisable to pick bright colours that be attractive to them and appeal their eyes. Such colours can spread cheerfulness all around the room and set the right mood for kids to play and have fun in the room. So bright colours with some moon, cloud and star designs are always a great idea.
Use Light Weight Coverings
You will always want to choose light weight curtains for your kid’s room, especially if your kid has allergies. Heavy draperies with too much fabric can store a lot of dust in them which does not do any good for your kid’s health. Instead, you should pick a light weight covering that you can maintain easily. Light coverings can easily be washed and cleared from all the dust. These will also let much more sunlight into the room than heavy draperies would.
Get Some Additional Pelmets
Adding pelmets to a kid’s room is another good idea. If you opt for a right design, a pelmet can create a real natural environment in the room. If you want to do this, you can consider adding pelmets shaped like sun, moon, planets or stars. Designs with clouds and rainbows will make the room seem even more refreshing. For younger kids, this is also a great way to teach them about shapes and planets.
Choose the Right Material
Besides design and additional accessories, you also have to think about the material for your window covering. If you are not going to choose some specific designs and patterns, you can opt for aluminum blinds. These are perfect for rooms with white walls and not too many accessories. On the other hand, if your kid’s room has many accessories and different designs you can decide on vertical panel track blinds which will be a perfect fit for such a room.
Choosing window coverings for a kid’s room can be quite a difficult task. Luckily, most of the ideas mentioned above are easy to follow and do not take much time. Curtains with interesting designs can be fun for kids in ways unimaginable to adults. Besides this, they can be a great way to help them learn. That is why you should give it a lot of thinking before you opt for one design and fabric. Make sure you ask your kid for opinion as well.
