But you should know, curtains for kids room have their down sides too: if you put them into a toddler's room who isn't properly supervised, (s)he might get tangled into them and risk suffocation or real injury by pulling it down together with the heavy curtain poles. That's why curtains in any rooms should be properly mounted and children who are big enough to understand it, educated about their dangers. You might also want to choose your curtains' fabric according to light absorption and heath insulation: if the sun shines in all day, get a thicker, coated curtain, if it's a darker room, a light colored sheer curtain could bring brightness into it. But no matter what you choose, make sure you get not only some useful but the same time some nice colorful curtains for your kids room.
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.
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.
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.
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.
