A good idea is to visit your local thrift shop or second-hand swag store where you will get mismatched curtains, sheeting and even cushion covers that can be patched together to create wonderful kitschy kids bedroom curtains. Cartoon characters, knights themes and a military these are ideal for growing boys. You can find cheap green cloth at the local thrift store and then back that up with flags, maps and other paraphernalia. The knights theme can be carried out with the use of wooden swords mounted on the walls, wooden furniture and a mock knights crest that is printed with computer printers on to stationary and even the walls.
Bright colours. There is a recent trend for minimalistic interiors, with mainly neutral colours throughout. However, opting for brightly coloured curtains is a way to keep your interiors fun and interesting, without having to resort to gimmicky furniture. For example, if your walls are white or magnolia, then choose bright pink or red, to add vibrancy. Alternately, you could opt for patterned curtains, like oriental-style embroidery or African markings.
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.
If you want to be gender specific then think curtains with prints of cars, airplanes, trucks, cranes, animals, trains for boys. For girls its prints of mermaids, fairies, princesses, dolls, puppies, kittens that make nice window accessories. Blue for boys and pink for girls is the usual color chosen but you can pick any bright color like yellows, oranges, and light green, white with bright prints and so on.
Net curtains. Net curtains are back in fashion, and should no longer be associated with fusty, old-fashioned interiors. Plain white, thin net curtains make a room appear more elegant, and from a practical side, stop people peering into your living room. If you prefer patterns, it's advisable to keep it minimal, or focussed only on the bottom half of the curtain. Patterns such as leaves and flowers are usually preferred, as they serve as a connection between the outside and inside space.
