Window Treatments for Kids Rooms
When it comes to choosing the perfect window treatments for your kids’ rooms, it can really be time to have some fun with your decorating options. You are not limited by anything but safety and your own tastes, and you have endless possibilities to choose from. Whether you are looking for ideas for a boy’s room or a girl’s room, or something less gender specific, expand your mind to consider the materials and placement that can help to truly tie the décor together and make the space something special and unique.
Consider a few of these ideas for your boy’s room. Take old baseball caps and attach them to a valance to make an interesting and personal window treatment. Complement the look with banners for the sports teams that are represented. Any sport is acceptable, and personal favorites are going to work best. Don’t worry about the caps being new, or in especially good condition; having some well worn or gently worn examples will add character and make the window treatment. This is a practical way to recycle sentimental items and develop a unique décor, all at the same time.
For your little girl, you can use old clothing that they have outgrown, such as cute dresses, etc., and cover up a wooden valance or hang them on a wide rod. This is a whimsical, yet practical way to bring the frilly, girly stuff into the décor, while keeping things practical, inexpensive and still unique. Add beads, tassles or other fun kinds of accessories, like leftover dance costumes and things of that nature, to glitz things up a bit.
When you choose a specialty item to use as accent, it is easy to add a simple shade, Roman shade or mini blind set to keep out light and add privacy. This is an inexpensive way to dress up any room, and happens to work especially well in kids’ rooms.
Don’t settle for just the plain, ho-hum options like white blinds or plain curtains for your child’s bedroom, make it every bit as special as your own child, and use things that are unique to their interests and tastes to decorate and tie a whole theme together nicely. When you use special items to accessorize a room, it makes the space even more cozy and comfortable, just the kind of space every kid would like to call their own.
