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.

Another clever option for kids rooms is using blackout curtains. Research has found that kids need 10 to 18 hours of sleep daily. However it can be tough convincing our children to sleep at certain times, like while it's still bright outside. This is where blackout curtains come in. They are room darkening curtains which you can use to control any external light that pass into your kids' rooms. Blackout curtains are effective because they are able to block 99% of light, thus providing our kids with the ideal environment to get their necessary sleep.
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.
Kids-Rooms-decorations, is an online store that offers curtains for kids that range from polka dots to bright solid colors. They feel that children need to feel comfortable in their own room and the right curtains can give them a secure feeling.

One thing to remember about these curtain bars is that they are meant for light weight drapery sets for smaller windows. As such, it is recommended that you double check the efficiency of the specific curtain rod you are purchasing to avoid any injury down the road. If you have any doubts as to whether or not the rod can hold up the drapery for the window it will be used on; ask an associate or email the retailer to ensure you have all your bases covered.
