When you are shopping for kid’s curtains or nursery curtains you can really let your imagination go wild! You can buy made to measure kid’s curtains or make your own using children’s curtain fabric. You can get children’s fabric in an array of colours and themes – from Spiderman curtains to soft green nursery curtains, or even farm curtains, there’s a style and colour that will look great in every room. If your child has a preferred colour, or even a favourite theme– you will find a curtain colour and design that they will absolutely love in their bedroom.
Always think carefully about the room that you are buying the curtains for. For example, girl’s curtains are generally made or bought in softer colours such as pink, purple and yellow, whereas boy’s curtains are often bolder in colour – using blues, greens, reds and brighter hues. Popular themes range from traditional bears and alphabets, to Cath Kidston cowboys, sailboats and TV superheroes. The great thing about making your own curtains is that you can pick the exact design and fabric that you like, and have them made to perfectly fit the bedroom window in question. You can also use the same fabric to make matching co-ordinates for the children’s bedroom, such as cushions, seat covers and even beanbags! When co-ordinated, patterned or colourful fabric can look amazing in a bedroom.
When you are shopping for kid’s curtain fabric, have a think about the kind of material that you would like for the room. For example; if you need to block out the light entering a room, it may be an idea to choose a slightly heavier fabric, or alternatively, you could have your curtains made with linings or use kids blackout curtains. For nurseries, curtains can be slightly less bulky, and many people like to choose a lighter, floating fairytale effect in their nurseries. Either way – you can dress up your window and make a room look great with the right kid’s curtains.
Baby curtains can be very cute – many people choose soft pastel shades, such as baby pink, blue or yellow for their curtains, but don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns as well – a large number of fabrics are available, from stripes, flowers, and ducks to rainbows, tractors and puppies - there’s a huge choice! If you’re worried about the amount of light entering a babies’ room, it can be a good idea to use kid’s blackout curtain linings – it may even save you a few sleepless nights!
Certainly, in recent times, many more people are choosing to make their own kid’s curtains. Perhaps this is because they can choose their own fabric and colour scheme, but also it can be a very cost effective way to decorate kid’s bedrooms. Curtains can be made to fit a window space exactly, and matching children’s curtain tie-backs can also be made to keep the curtains away from the window during the day.

So, when you are looking for children’s curtains – keep an open mind regarding the fabric, colour and style of the curtains. Ideally, the curtains should match the existing bedroom décor, or should offer you the option to create matching co-ordinates using the same fabric. And, if you are in doubt as to which colour and style to pick – ask your kids what they like!
