Another clever option for kids rooms is using blackout curtains. Research has found that kids need 10 to 18 hours of sleep daily. However it can be tough convincing our children to sleep at certain times, like while it's still bright outside. This is where blackout curtains come in. They are room darkening curtains which you can use to control any external light that pass into your kids' rooms. Blackout curtains are effective because they are able to block 99% of light, thus providing our kids with the ideal environment to get their necessary sleep.
If you are finding the option of buying new curtains difficult to justify in this financial climate, you needn't worry. You can always make your own thermal and blackout curtains simply by attaching thermal linings to the face of your existing curtains. Thermal linings are made using a polyester and cotton blend fabric material which has acrylic foam as a layer. In some cases a thin layer of aluminum is used instead.
In cold weather, it can be almost impossible to regulate the weather in our kids' rooms without it costing us a lot of money in energy bills. Thermal curtains help keep the temperature warm and toasty by insulating the windows, thereby keeping draft out. This helps us save a small fortune in utility bills as we don't have to turn up the heating as high as we usually would. Good choices for kids rooms are thermal curtains in bright, vibrant colors like orange, yellow, green or lilac. I also recommend keeping the curtains open in the day to allow some light to enter the room.
