Great Curtains For The Nursery

16th Mar 2016

Are you expecting a baby in the near future? Creating the nursery is such a fun experience. As you wait for the little one to join your family, you get to decorate and prepare the nursery so that it is just the way you want it when the baby arrives. We recommend completing your nursery (for the most part) around six or seven months into your pregnancy because your baby may come early and you’ll want to be prepared!

An element that can make or break the smooth function of your nursery is the curtains. There are pros and cons to adding different types of curtains to your nursery, so we’re here to offer some tips about curtains online so that you can make the best choice for your home.

Blockout Curtains

When your child depends on many hours of sleep to be healthy and pleasant, you’ll need blockout curtains. These room-darkening curtains help keep out the natural sunlight during your baby’s daytime naps. The eyelet blockout curtains slide easily, so you can enjoy the sunlight when your baby is awake. Moreover, blockout curtains help regulate room temperature meaning your baby will always be comfortable.

Sheer Curtains

This style of curtain brightens the nursery and adds the perfect decorative flair. If you love the natural light and want to sync your baby’s circadian rhythm with the natural day, then sheer curtains are a great choice for your nursery.


The best option is to have both sheer and blockout curtains hanging on your nursery window. This way you can keep out the sunlight while your baby is sleeping and then use the sheer curtains to maintain your privacy while allowing the natural light to shine through the window when your baby is awake.

Decorating the nursery is so much fun! We hope you find the right curtains online with Quickfit Blinds & Curtains.
