The Right Baby Room Window Curtains
Part of the fun and excitement of becoming a new parent is designing and decorating the baby’s nursery and choosing the right baby room curtains will give the room the perfect finishing touch. The right curtains for the baby room have to be equal parts aesthetic appeal, functionality, and child safety. Here are some tips for choosing the right curtains for your baby’s nursery. Many parents begin the process of designing their baby’s nursery by building the room around a theme. Once you’ve decided on a theme you’re in a better position to select a color for the baby room and fabrics to complement it. When it comes to curtains in a nursery, color is important. During her first six weeks, your baby will spend much of the time sleeping. This is why many parents opt for room darkening blinds and dark colors for curtains, transitioning to curtains with lighter colors like lighter pinks and sky blue when the baby reaches six months.
Parents should also consider the curtain’s material. You can achieve fantastic looks for window treatments with cotton, silk and even netted curtains. But you’ll need to decide on the material’s thickness and what you want to accomplish in the baby room. Thicker material will block out more light and keep a nursery warmer by preventing cold drafts coming from windows during winter months. But if you live in a warmer climate and prefer to keep your nursery light and cheery, choosing a lighter material will allow more sunlight in.
