Let the old traditional idea of panel curtains fall from your mind and embrace lighter, more vibrant looks for a child's bedroom. Instead of heavy floral drapes, opt for fabrics that are both lighter and more appropriately themed. Many large department and home decor shops offer panel curtains that are perfectly suited to the needs of a child's bedroom. There are curtains with dinosaurs, curtains with ballerinas and curtains with just about any other childlike theme that you could want. If, however, your idea of the perfect curtain is nowhere to be seen, you can create your own whimsical pattern from fabric that you purchase. A simple pocket panel curtain can quickly transform the look of a room and give you that fun look you've been searching for.
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.
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.
Another clever option for kids rooms is using blackout curtains. Research has found that kids need 10 to 18 hours of sleep daily. However it can be tough convincing our children to sleep at certain times, like while it's still bright outside. This is where blackout curtains come in. They are room darkening curtains which you can use to control any external light that pass into your kids' rooms. Blackout curtains are effective because they are able to block 99% of light, thus providing our kids with the ideal environment to get their necessary sleep.
First, you need to decide what style of curtain rod you want. What kind of curtains are you going to use? If you want to go with a tabbed curtain or are going to use rings, round curtain rods are best so the curtains slide easily. If the curtains are going to be stationary, you might want to use a more decorative rod, such as a twisted rod or rope style rod. If the rod is not going to show, keep it simple with a round rod.
