Creating the perfect space for your little one isn't easy. As a parent, there are many very legitimate concerns you might have. For example, will the window treatment block out morning light, allowing them to get enough sleep? Will it provide a child-safe environment? Will it provide more than enough privacy all hours of the day? Will it be easy to clean if the window coverings are within the reach of their little, sometimes dirty, hands? Will it be easy for children to operate?
When it comes to kids’ bedrooms, noise and light can affect their routine. You’ll want natural light to make the room feel bright during the day, yet dark to block light from a full moon at night. We all know what it’s like dealing with a child who didn’t get a good night’s sleep. Budget Blinds can’t guarantee your child will get an amazing night’s sleep. We can guarantee high quality window coverings so leaking light isn’t the problem.
Those are a few functionality pieces to consider, then there’s style. You also want something that’s fun, playful, and aesthetically pleasing. Overwhelmed? Don’t be. That’s why we are going to walk you through how to select the perfect window treatments for your children’s space. Budget Blinds offers a wide variety of styles, colors, and fabrics - custom options too!
Blackout Window Shades
Our blackout window shades provide impressive room darkening.. They're perfect for rooms of newborns and toddlers because they create ideal sleeping conditions, even during the day. They provide maximum protection from UV rays. If you want energy efficiency? These shades are an ideal option, keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We offer many blackout shades including roller shades, cellular shades, and Roman shades. Like most of our products, blackout shades come in numerous fabrics, colors, and prints.
Cordless, graphic shades
Cordless window treatments put safety first for both children and pets. Graphic shades bring a lot of personality to a room. Budget Blinds’ graphic shades can be motorized, making a safer environment by eliminating cords. They also block out harmful UV rays from the sun. This is a nice option because they offer a significant amount of light control.
Fun graphic shades offer limitless possibilities for creating the right theme. Does your child love superheros? Unicorns? Fishing? We can make shades to fit almost any theme. We can even add graphic images or artwork with our high-resolution printing technology. But do keep in mind that their tastes will likely change. So be sure to choose something they will love for years to come. While themed shades are fun, sometimes choosing a solid color to match the room works best.
Shutters are a perfect option if you have sophisticated style or older children. Shutters with louvers can adjust for different lighting options throughout the day. They do a nice job of filtering outside noise too. Adaptability is another perk. Shutters can pened to allow in light, airflow and control the outside view. Budget Blinds’ interior shutters come in three louver sizes: 2 ½”, 3 ½” and 4 ½” to cater to your lighting and privacy preferences.
Layering drapes with interior shutters creates insulation and a blackout effect. Shutters can be motorized for convenience. Being cordless, shutters provide a safe environment and are easy to operate for kids.
Shutters are available in a variety of stains and finishes or can be custom color matched to the bedroom’s décor. You can have anything from pastels to bright colored shades. It’s never too early to involve them in the process of decorating their own room for a space they’ll love.
Vinyl blinds are low maintenance, durable, and easy to clean. Budget Blinds’ vinyl blinds have stain-resistant Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC). They’re also resistant to moisture and can block UV rays. With regard to functionality, they have a lot of light control and can be motorized. You can choose from a wide range of fun colors and textures to complement the design of your child’s bedroom.
Roman shades are elegant, creating a beautiful nursery or room for older children. Some styles include balloon, tear drop, and cascading folds. For functionality, Roman shades provide energy efficiency year-round. For safety and ease of operation, consider cordless or motorized Roman shades.
Picking window treatments for your kids’ rooms is exciting, especially if you do it with them. They typically love to help lend their opinion of colors and patterns. Plus, when they feel invested in the decisions, they’re more likely to want to keep their rooms clean...or so we hope!
