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.
A good idea is to visit your local thrift shop or second-hand swag store where you will get mismatched curtains, sheeting and even cushion covers that can be patched together to create wonderful kitschy kids bedroom curtains. Cartoon characters, knights themes and a military these are ideal for growing boys. You can find cheap green cloth at the local thrift store and then back that up with flags, maps and other paraphernalia. The knights theme can be carried out with the use of wooden swords mounted on the walls, wooden furniture and a mock knights crest that is printed with computer printers on to stationary and even the walls.
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.
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.
Generally, you will find kids curtain rod designs constructed of hollow aluminum of steel tubing; painted in friendly and aesthetically pleasing colors such as different shades of white or lighter versions of any of the primary or secondary colors. In terms of the actual designs of this genre of curtain rods; there are a couple that are fairly dominant. These designs tend to be simple for the most part, exhibiting light humored pictures that are painted or printed onto the outside of the tubing. There are also options where the rod itself is simply a solid colored shaft with themed finial that deliver the specificity of the character the curtain rod is intended to exhibit.
