When it comes to these unique and often fun accessories, there are an endless array of styles and designs to choose from. Obviously, the major factor is what kinds of interests the children that will be using the space have. Whether it is a cartoon character, super hero, or simply a love of butterflies; there is usually an option available to cover all of the bases.
Sometimes involving kids in decisions can be more trouble than it's worth. They can be indecisive and, frankly, what they think "goes" is oftentimes a style disaster (just ask them to pick out their own outfit for the day and see what you get). But give them some choices (that have been pre-selected) of kids curtains that they're sure to love and notice how much more time they'll spend in their room happily. It can make a big difference in their happiness, and ultimately that of the entire family.
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.
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.
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.
