The choice of curtains for a children's room is not much different than for another room in the house. There are two important factors to consider. On the one hand the natural light that enters through the window and on the other the size of the bedroom. We can also consider the color and decorative style that we have chosen or the type of window we are going to cover.
Ideas for choosing curtains in a children's room
We must take into account several factors when choosing curtains, blinds or falls for our children's room:
1. Natural light
If the intensity of sunlight is very high either because of the orientation or because it is a large window we will have to think about using dense fabrics that allow us to reduce it so that it allows the rest of the baby who will spend many hours of the day sleeping. It is not advisable to lower the blinds and plunge into the darkness but must differentiate between day and night. Using over-curtains is a good option.
On the other hand, in a dark room with little natural light it is advisable to take advantage of it to the maximum using very vaporous and translucent fabrics, preferably in white, cream or yellow color that clarify and produce a solar effect.
2. Size of the room
For small bedrooms it is preferable to use fabrics of the same color as the walls and that are very clear to increase the feeling of spaciousness. The fabrics will be smooth and without drawings that attract in excess the sight towards that point. In large rooms you can play with other shades and drawings of intense colors.
3. Fabrics for the curtains
Cotton fabrics or that are easily washable are advisable. If you want a vaporous effect the organzas, threads or muslins are perfect. They have a perfect lightness effect for baby bedrooms. The curtains according to their color can dye the light that enters through the window providing an effect of warmth.
4. Types of curtains
They are very practical blinds or falls but very soft. If you have to use a double curtain to reduce the light, you can pick them up with clasps or clamps when you do not use them.
Blinds can be with rod or paquetto type (without rods) that when collected create a beautiful effect.
In the case that the window is very small you can visually enlarge it if the bar on which you hang the curtain protrudes a few centimeters from the frame.
