Planning for a new baby can be so much fun, especially when it comes to designing and decorating a nursery. Chances are you’ve thought of the crib, changing table, dresser, and maybe even a few toys. But did you think about which curtains might be best for the new baby’s room? It’s a good thing it takes babies nine months to grow so parents have plenty of time to get everything sorted away in the nursery. Luckily, curtains from Quickfit ship quickly and are easy to hang, which means even parents who may have procrastinated a little won’t have to take a strike on the nursery just yet.
Check out this guide to pick out the right curtains for a baby nursery.
Styles Fit For A Child
It’s no secret that a good night of sleep is essential for the health and well being of growing children. Both physically and mentally, a night of good rest is what many kids need to function fully after naptime or during the next day.
Blockout material is a thicker curtain panel that keeps 100 percent of the sunlight out of the room when the curtains are drawn. This makes naptime easier because it can be the middle of the day and be dark enough in the room for your little one to easily fall asleep. Similarly, blockout curtains help your baby sleep peacefully after the sun rises, even if the window would typically bear the brunt of the sun’s morning rays.
Another perk of the blockout curtain material is the way it helps keep a room a constant temperature. Blockout curtains are known to be energy-saving because they block the sunlight from warming the room too much. They also prevent the temperature-controlled air from leaving the room. Not only does this keep the energy bills in the house down, but it keeps your baby more comfortable. Doctors recommend a nursery be kept around 22 degrees Celsius so the little baby doesn’t get too hot or too cold while he or she sleeps.
The best part about putting together a nursery is decorating it. Curtains are one way to add a pop of colour to a room, or they can be another element of a themed style. Quickfit has a large selection of colourful curtain panels that would look great in a new nursery.
The eyelet header is recommended for curtains in a nursery because they are easy to install, uninstall, and install again. This can be necessary when your baby has an accident on the changing table that sprays across the room. A similar incident may occur when your kid grows up and makes a mess in his or her room. Eyelet curtains slide on and off the rod easily. Ready-made panels can be tossed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle, and blockout curtain panels can be spot cleaned with warm water.
