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.
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.
Paint is cheap and the best way to create effects in any bedroom. You can ask your kids to collaborate in creating ideas by using layered effects on walls and windows. Stenciling is one of the easiest ways to do that. You can get professional stencils and stencil paints to create designs on the bedroom glasses and even on the window sills. The stencil paints are weather hardy but they can be easily removed or painted over to create new designs as your child grows. There are thousands of stencil libraries online where you will get all sorts of patterns for a nominal fee or for free.
Blackout linings on the other hand are special linings which have ultraviolet resistant properties. This stops any light from passing through and causing interference in our children's rooms. Both thermal and blackout curtains are perfect for nurseries, classrooms and kids' playrooms too. You can purchase them in a variety of exciting hues and designs.
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.
