When you want to redecorate a child's room, you may not need to repaint, paper or change the walls at all. A change of accessories, bedding, and especially curtains can change a room dramatically without going through the expense of a complete redecoration. You will be amazed at the change even when changing a window treatment.
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.
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.
Today's sheer curtains are not like the styles of yesterday. Instead, today's sheers often come with appliqué decorations, sequins and sparkles galore. They also come in many different colors. It is not unusual to find sheer curtains in deep purples with butterfly designs, or in bright yellow with sunflowers embroidered on them. Whatever decor you are trying to achieve, there are sheers that will match your ideas. Use sheers behind the panel curtains to help filter light, provide privacy and enhance the whimsical look in the child's bedroom.
What finials should you use? Finials are the decorative pieces that go on the end of the curtain rod. They vary from very simple to very decorative. Simple finials could be balls. More decorative could match the theme of your room. For example, a cowboy room needs horseshoes. A princess room might need a star. An animal themed room might like an animal shaped finial. If you are going to use a curtain that covers your curtain rod, you might want a decorative finial since that is all that is going to be seen.
