After you have installed your panel curtain, include a valance over it. Valances are typically patterned and used to accent plain curtains. For a whimsical look in a child's bedroom, switch that thinking around. A patterned curtain can be accented by a plain fabric valance. To add visual interest and appeal to the valance, decorate it with a light dusting of glitter or sequins. Not only will it make the valance more interesting, it will also accent the patterned curtain.
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.
Which child can resist a Winnie the Pooh, Thomas the Tank Engine, Noddy, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Tom and Jerry, Dora, and host of other cartoon characters. Many children have a few favorites but most don't mind as long as it is a character that they can relate to from their TV shows or comic books. So, curtains with any of these characters are sure to resonate with your children.
Curtains for kids room have the same positive effect on your decoration and utility, and when making a low budget study-bedroom transformation for one of your kids who just grown too much to live with their siblings any more, and you figure you could use old furniture but need new painting and stuff, be sure a super colorful curtain with his fave cartoon character or a flourishing watercolor voile with some beautiful ribbons to tie up with - it will give the whole room a new existence. If you're willing to put a little more money into redecorating, you can create a theme for your little one's room: if he's into spacecrafts, he might like stars on his curtains, if she wants a romantic 19th century French boudoir, you should get her an exotic curtain with rope and tassel as a curtain hook.
The next decision is finish or color. This one is probably a little easier of a choice. You can choose a specific color to match the walls or something in the room, like a bed comforter or a decorative item. Or you could do a flat black if you do not want it to stand out. It also depends on the color of your painted walls. If you have white walls, a bright color might look great with your room. Look at your curtains and the other items in your room and decide on a finish that will match or complement them.
