Five Considerations For Kids Curtains


Above all else, safety is the very most important factor to consider when choosing the right curtains for your child’s room. If you have young children, remember that they may pull on curtains when they are learning to stand or walk. Choosing a lightweight, yet sturdy curtain is important for this reason, as is selecting strong and durable rods and brackets that will withstand the occasional tug. Likewise, be sure the curtains you are considering are free of any type of small embellishments that could pose a choking hazard.

Age and Gender

As you are shopping for curtains online or in stores, it is important to consider your child’s age and gender. If your child is a three-year-old boy, chances are that he may prefer bright, colourful patterns. If your child is a 16-year-old girl, she is likely to have very different design preferences than those of someone who is younger. As a good rule of thumb, if your child is old enough to express his or her design preferences, it may be beneficial to take them into account as you are selecting curtains.

Colour and Pattern

Exploring different colours, patterns, and textures is one of the most fun parts about shopping for kids curtains. It is important to remember that children are just like adults in that they probably don’t want a gloomy room. Choosing bright colours and interesting patterns not only adds visual interest to the room, but it may also spark your child’s creativity. Hanging window treatments up that complement the room’s colour scheme is a great way to tie the room together.

Material and Texture

As adults, we tend to like curtains that are made from materials that are unique and visually appealing. Curtains made from a distinctive material may lend themselves well to a sophisticated master bedroom, living room, or study. Kids, on the other hand, may not be as interested as we are in unique materials and complex textures when it comes to curtains. Selecting children's curtains that are made from smooth, flowing fabrics are ideal because of their simplicity.


While it is important to provide your children with a room that is bright, cheerful, and decorated with age-appropriate decor, it is equally important to ensure that your children get the rest that they need to learn and grow. Choosing window treatments, like blockout curtains, that block out sunlight at naptime and bedtime is an easy way to provide your child with an environment that promotes and is conducive to rest. Incorporating these curtains with other layers of window coverings allows you to customise the level of natural light in a room.
