The Best Blinds for Children’s Rooms
In decorating your child’s bedroom or playroom, you should always aim to create a nurturing, warm environment that reflects your child’s tastes and interests. This extends to even the smallest parts of the room, including the furniture (which should be functional and practical for your child) and even the blinds!
This month, we’ll be showing you what the best blinds for children’s rooms are.
Blackout blinds are the ideal style of blinds for a child’s room. The key reason for this is that by design these blinds will block all natural light flooding into a room. Convincing small children to go to bed is difficult at the best of times, never mind when it’s still light outside! So being able to induce a night time atmosphere and convince your child it is in fact bedtime is a huge benefit – as such, you’ll be overjoyed with your blackout blinds!
A further benefit of blackout blinds is that they are often perfect fit, meaning no cords are used in their design. This has massive positive safety implications, which you can find more on towards the end of this article.
Another perfect type of blind for a child’s room are roller blinds. Roller blinds can be used to bring an abundance of colour to a room, with myriad patterns and designs available, plenty of which are also child friendly. You can even personalise your child’s bedroom by attaching decals to the roller blinds!
The soft, luscious design of Roman blinds can make for a calming, cosy addition to any child’s room. As with roller blinds, there are plenty of patterns and colours to choose from, so you can gear your new Roman blinds especially towards your child’s tastes.
Make It Safe
First and foremost, you should always ensure that no matter what style of blinds you choose for a child’s room they are completely safe for children. Child-appropriate safety devices are a must, and at Boyd’s Blinds you can rest assured that all our blinds are safe for homes with children.
Safety devices include:
- Cordless designs
- Cord fasteners
- Chain tensioning mechanisms to pull the cord out of a child’s reach
- Breakaway cord connectors
- Breakaway clips
In addition, you should always ensure that your blind is installed professionally and securely. Failure to do so could put your children at risk; if your new blinds aren’t installed correctly, they could fall off and seriously harm your child, for instance. Don’t take the risk – always use a professional firm like Boyd’s Blinds!
