Today's sheer curtains are not like the styles of yesterday. Instead, today's sheers often come with appliqué decorations, sequins and sparkles galore. They also come in many different colors. It is not unusual to find sheer curtains in deep purples with butterfly designs, or in bright yellow with sunflowers embroidered on them. Whatever decor you are trying to achieve, there are sheers that will match your ideas. Use sheers behind the panel curtains to help filter light, provide privacy and enhance the whimsical look in the child's bedroom.
Blackout linings on the other hand are special linings which have ultraviolet resistant properties. This stops any light from passing through and causing interference in our children's rooms. Both thermal and blackout curtains are perfect for nurseries, classrooms and kids' playrooms too. You can purchase them in a variety of exciting hues and designs.
What finials should you use? Finials are the decorative pieces that go on the end of the curtain rod. They vary from very simple to very decorative. Simple finials could be balls. More decorative could match the theme of your room. For example, a cowboy room needs horseshoes. A princess room might need a star. An animal themed room might like an animal shaped finial. If you are going to use a curtain that covers your curtain rod, you might want a decorative finial since that is all that is going to be seen.
Storage. Curtains are not only used on windows, but also as replacements to cupboard doors. This can be done yourself, by simply removing the original doors are replacing them with the fabric of your choice, perhaps something that matches already existing soft furnishings, like cushions or duvet covers. This idea therefore works extremely well in the bedroom, when curtains are used as wardrobe doors, or if you're feeling really brave, then can also be used in the kitchen.
Pick materials that are easily washable as kids can and will dirty their rooms and curtains. Choose colors that don't show stains or preferably pick fabrics that don't get stained easily. As far as children are concerned curtains are great for wiping greasy fingers, paints on the palms of their hands, sticky hands, chocolate around the mouth and much more. You can't be really monitoring children 24 hours and if something is stuck to their hands or face and troubling them then it has to come off immediately and curtains come handy for these things.
