Kids’ rooms can be a challenge to decorate. With their ever-changing interests and constantly evolving needs, the bedrooms of children are areas of the house that can be hard to keep up with. Trying to buy new furniture or paint new murals all the time may be unrealistic, but there’s a simple and effective way to update your child’s room in a snap: Window coverings!
They may not be the first things you think of when renovating, but window coverings can be an endlessly fun, and easy way to change a room – exactly what you’re looking for if you’re looking to please a tiny person.
So, without further ado, here are a couple of fun ways that window coverings can add to a child’s bedroom.
Pop of Colour: Bright colours are amazing – but sometimes you don’t want to paint an entire room hot pink – or rainbow glitter. Colourful blinds or drapes can be an easy way to bring bright colours into a room without going overboard, and you never need to worry about how you would cover up that brilliantly scarlet wall should the need arise.
Easy Themes: Want to have a pirate themed room? Or a monkey-filled nursery? No problem! Add some blue and white striped curtains with rough rope accents, or cute green drapes with a monkey decal, and you’re all done. The best part is that these quick and easy themed pieces can also be quickly and easily changed, catering to your child’s ever growing interests.
Change the age of the room: As kids get older, it can be difficult to have their spaces age with them – especially when it comes to the big jump from kid to teenager. Blinds can be surprisingly helpful with this transition – black out blinds can be a sleepy teen’s best friend, and installing adult window coverings can make a space feel more elegant, timeless, and relaxing.
Create a wicked fort. Who says curtains are only for windows? Drapes can be used around beds, at closet doors, or at special sitting spots. They can make adorable and durable headboards, or they can be used to conceal treasures (or shoes). It’s a quick and inexpensive way to add some magic to a kid’s space.
