In cold weather, it can be almost impossible to regulate the weather in our kids' rooms without it costing us a lot of money in energy bills. Thermal curtains help keep the temperature warm and toasty by insulating the windows, thereby keeping draft out. This helps us save a small fortune in utility bills as we don't have to turn up the heating as high as we usually would. Good choices for kids rooms are thermal curtains in bright, vibrant colors like orange, yellow, green or lilac. I also recommend keeping the curtains open in the day to allow some light to enter the room.
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.
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.
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.
Pick materials that are easily washable as kids can and will dirty their rooms and curtains. Choose colors that don't show stains or preferably pick fabrics that don't get stained easily. As far as children are concerned curtains are great for wiping greasy fingers, paints on the palms of their hands, sticky hands, chocolate around the mouth and much more. You can't be really monitoring children 24 hours and if something is stuck to their hands or face and troubling them then it has to come off immediately and curtains come handy for these things.
