Decorating our kids' rooms brings out the creativity in all of us. Part of why we enjoy it so much is the freedom it allows us to combine bright and bold colours to make our children's rooms as homely as possible. However while we are looking for creative ways to design our kids' bedrooms, we must not lose sight of their comfort as the number one priority.
Let the old traditional idea of panel curtains fall from your mind and embrace lighter, more vibrant looks for a child's bedroom. Instead of heavy floral drapes, opt for fabrics that are both lighter and more appropriately themed. Many large department and home decor shops offer panel curtains that are perfectly suited to the needs of a child's bedroom. There are curtains with dinosaurs, curtains with ballerinas and curtains with just about any other childlike theme that you could want. If, however, your idea of the perfect curtain is nowhere to be seen, you can create your own whimsical pattern from fabric that you purchase. A simple pocket panel curtain can quickly transform the look of a room and give you that fun look you've been searching for.
Unlike straight panel curtains that are rectangular in shape, shape curtains are made in a variety of different shapes. Leaves, flowers, cars and trucks are some of the most common styles of shape curtains. These cut outs of whimsical patterns are usually custom-made or found only at high end specialty stores. If you are searching for a truly unique look, a shape curtain is definitely the way to provide it.
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.
When moving to a new house there are so many essential objects that you need to buy in order to be able to live there, that the curtains are probably somewhere at the end of the list, if they are on the list at all. But make no mistake, curtains have very important functions in our homes: whey keep prying eyes out of your personal space, they block sunbeams making your room a veritable sauna, they stop flies and other flying insects coming in through the open window and last but not as a negligible fact: they give your home a nice, cozy appearance, a familiar look that says "somebody lives and loves and is happy here". Also, curtains are a sure way to distinguish your familiar, intimate space from a professional but cold and rigid office or waiting room. And if we're on the decorative aspects, let's mention how curtains are one of the cheapest way to boost up your spaces: get some vivid colors, be bold on shapes and patterns, tie them up in a creative way and you've got your room a brand new look.
