Window blinds come in a variety of types, styles, and designs. Each style with functions suited to different tastes and different room in your home. They can completely block out light, give total privacy or just add a bit of flair to your room. Deciding which blinds are best for a children’s bedroom will depend on a few different things.
Think about the level of Privacy you want
Keeping your children safe is a parent’s first priority. The first thing to decide on to determine which blind to choose is the level of privacy you are wanting the window blinds to provide. Some blinds will completely block out light. These options provide ample privacy, and if you opt for blinds such as shutters they can even add that extra dimension of security. While others Blinds will allow in quite a bit of light, such as privacy sheers and silhouette shadings, they will provide little privacy compared to other types of block out blinds.
Consider the external aspects of the room
These might include things like:
- The position of the room. Are there bright lights outside the window such as a street light that might make it difficult for your child to sleep? Or does the room back onto an outdoor living area?
- Is the house faced in such a way that the early morning sun comes through the window potentially waking your child up super early? In either of these cases, you may want to opt for a block out blind to provide the darkest space for your child to sleep in.
- Perhaps it is a window on a higher floor that doesn’t get a lot of light into the window. In that case, it may work better than to go purely on aesthetics. Simply choose a design that best fits the space without needing to worry about the level of privacy it provides.
Your child’s age may be a factor
Young children can become tangled in the cord from window blinds so curtains or a roller blind that does not have dangling cords may be a better option for their room. Deciding on the level of light you want for the room. For really young children it may even be a safer bet to go with a shutter or a privacy sheer.
Ultimately, the best blinds for your child’s room will come down to your personal preference. Consider things like functionality, as well as the space itself and the age of your child. Taking those things into consideration will help you decide the best blinds for your home.
