We will first start with a kid's bedroom. One of best curtains to use in a kid's room are blackout curtains. Blackout curtains will block out all the light in the windows. Sunlight proves to be a big distraction in the morning and during nap times for kids. There are a few options in blackout curtains that are not only functional but stylish as well. You can find cotton blackout curtains in some nice contemporary styles that are suitable for both boys and girls. There are fancier yet affordable options such as faux silk blackout curtains. These curtains are more suitable for young girls and teens. You can also find some blackout roman shade curtains that will fit inside of the window itself for a neat appearance.
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.
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.
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.
With this in mind, I will recommend two cost-effective types of curtains that will keep your children's rooms warm and cosy - and you won't have to sacrifice style.
