Kids’ rooms always present challenges for every aspect of interior decoration. Much as the kids are adorable, there seems to be always a wide gap between what parents think as proper for kids and what kids want as their prerogative and privilege. Whether it is for buying furniture or for getting curtains for the kids’ rooms, the confrontation possibly will continue. An easy way out is to involve the kids at the planning stage and ask for their input. Actually once kids realize their wishes are being paid attention, they do get quite sensible and with a little help from an understanding interior decorator, there can be an amicable settlement mutually satisfying to the kids and parents resulting in an attractive interior décor.
The thumb of the rule for kids’ room furniture and furnishing is to opt for bright and vivid colours. Selecting colourful drapes and curtains need not mean that curtains should look garish, flashy or loud. Neutral and cute light colours can be combined with their earthy warm tones and shades and accented with interesting tints for an aesthetically pleasing effect. Children love contemporary things. They do love things that are easy and nice on the eye. They prefer stuff which can withstand a little tumble. Children love curtains which look good without showing the spills and soiling that may happen inadvertently. Washable sturdy and bright coloured curtains can be best for kids’ rooms.
Girls like things frilly and decorative. They love pretty colours especially pink. Boys usually like sports and games. Now with bed-linen sets available with themes like Barbie Doll theme, fairy tale and other cartoon oriented themes, curtains are now available with theme based prints to match these bed sheets, bed spreads and duvet covers. And what is the style most suitable for using in kids rooms? Curtains need to be just the right length for kids’ rooms. Too long curtains, no not at all? Young kids tend to playfully pull them down, or may trip over them. Also avoid dangling loops or chords by using a chord-less system or check out the latest remote control option.
What is the most suitable fabric for kids’ rooms? Fabrics which can be machine-washed, and can put up some rough handling can be best – like linen, cotton, poly-blend fabrics and chintz can be a good choice. Festive looking and funky finials can be used as accent accessories. This will make kids enjoy their room ambience more! Learn more about curtains for kids.
