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.
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.
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.
Another great idea is using ribbons as drapes for a girl's bedroom. This kids bedroom window curtain treatment is extremely easy and cheap. All you have to do is use a tie-knot to hand multiple colored ribbons on the curtain rod. The ribbons flutter in the wind, letting in lots of air and light, and they create a lovely effect if you combine transparent lace ribbons with pastel colors. Window treatments are another great kids bedroom window idea that I really liked. As the word states, you can use mini blinds, roller blinds, drapes to create multiple effects at the window.
If you are finding the option of buying new curtains difficult to justify in this financial climate, you needn't worry. You can always make your own thermal and blackout curtains simply by attaching thermal linings to the face of your existing curtains. Thermal linings are made using a polyester and cotton blend fabric material which has acrylic foam as a layer. In some cases a thin layer of aluminum is used instead.
