Blinds For Babies – Window Treatment Tips For A Nursery

The Perfect Window Treatment Option For Your Child

As expectant parents, you delve into the project of your baby’s nursery décor with glee and ardor. There’s something incredibly intimate about planning out the details of the room in which your child will take his or her first steps – the right wall paper, the paint, the cradle, and various other essentials. While these style factors are taken into consideration, you must also take into account the safety and functionality concerns of the nursery.

One of the most important factors is the window treatment option you choose. Which one is right for your child’s room? Why? And how can you procure it? Here are some tips that you should keep in mind to ensure you design the absolute best nursery for your small bundle of joy:

The Light Controlling Factor

Most parents ready themselves for sleep-deprived nights because of their infant’s unregulated sleep patterns. However, what if we told you that you can promote a healthy sleep routine for your child by simply controlling the amount of light that enters a room? A common myth that most new parents face is that their child needs a night light to sleep. Most kids do not develop a fear of the dark, until after they are much older, and only because they’ve been exposed to a night light most of their infant life.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, exposure to too much light right before bedtime may prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep. Setting a good sleep habit for your child is essential from the very beginning for their mental and physical development. So, it all comes down to three things for your child’s nursery: quiet, dark, and warmth. For better light and temperature control, we recommend cellular shades and roller shades made right here in the Lexington Ky area. They’re considered one of the leading choices that control 99% of UV light from entering the room, keeping the temperature from rising. Take a look at some discount cellular shades.

The Style of the Window Option

Window treatment options are no longer a factor of functionality alone. It offers modern design and aesthetic appeal as well. In most cases, draperies are a personal favorite for high fashion style option. You can choose from a variety of patterns, fabrics and designs to choose one that adds a splash of color to your nursery.

On the other hand, if you wish to opt for blinds and shades, you can choose from a variety of options there as well – vertical blinds, pleated shades, solar shades, sheer shades, wood blinds, and much more.

The Matter of Safety

Finally, when it comes down to the nursery, you may compromise on just about everything, except one factor; and that’s the safety and security concerns. While your infant will not be able to get their hands on the blinds, shades or draperies you have installed, it is always recommended to place your child’s crib away from the window. Newborns grow fast, and before you know it, they’ll be grasping for the nearest object they can get their hands on.  There are several window shades that come in a cordless or motorized option.

Furthermore, refrain from having long draperies installed – one that could be pulled on once your child begins crawling. Since we customize every window treatment option, we could have additional safety factors installed to ensure that your window covering is secure as ever for your child.
