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.
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.

They will make your curtains any length you desire, and feature online ordering.

But you should know, curtains for kids room have their down sides too: if you put them into a toddler's room who isn't properly supervised, (s)he might get tangled into them and risk suffocation or real injury by pulling it down together with the heavy curtain poles. That's why curtains in any rooms should be properly mounted and children who are big enough to understand it, educated about their dangers. You might also want to choose your curtains' fabric according to light absorption and heath insulation: if the sun shines in all day, get a thicker, coated curtain, if it's a darker room, a light colored sheer curtain could bring brightness into it. But no matter what you choose, make sure you get not only some useful but the same time some nice colorful curtains for your kids room.
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.
