Kids Curtains

Kids curtains should be functional, safe, and to their liking. Functionality includes privacy, and light and temperature control. Safe curtains are flame retardant (though I hate the chemicals used for that). And to their liking means the curtains are of colors and patterns they prefer. What a great way for a kid to take control of his room and make a personal statement.

Children's rooms should be full of fun and personality. This is a room that your child will spend quite a bit of time in both playing and resting, so you want to be sure that their room expresses their own individuality and style. The right kids curtains can help to enhance the rest of the room's decor and can cover the window with style.


One of the best things about kids curtains is that they are available in so many different designs, styles, and patterns. This makes them so much fun to add to a child's room and it makes them very kid friendly. Kids enjoy choosing their curtains with the favorite colors, cartoon characters, or patterns to add life and fun to their room. No matter what color that your child likes or what interest they have, kids curtains can be found to meet their needs and wants.

There are a few things that you will want to keep in mind when choosing kids curtains. By making your choice carefully, you will find that the curtains will be both aesthetically pleasing for your child and their room and functional for your child and you.


  • Think about the room's decor.
    If there is one predominant color in the bedding and other decorative items that you have chosen, you will want to work off of that color for your kids curtains as well. This will help to add flow to the d├ęcor of the room.

  • Think about function.
    Does your child's window need privacy or light control? If so, you will want to keep that in mind when you are choosing the kids curtains. Nothing is worse than a child waking up early in the morning due to the sun coming up. By making sure that the beauty of the kids curtains fits the function, you can make your decision more meaningful.

  • Think about your child.
    One of the most important things to consider behind the decor and function is what your child likes. You can make the room pleasing to you without sacrificing your child's desires and wants for their room. Keep in mind that it is their room that they need to feel comfortable in to sleep, rest, and play. By giving them some room to make decisions about the decor, including the kids curtains, you will give them some ownership over the room that will increase their comfort level.

  • Think about durability and ease of care.
    Make sure that the kids curtains that you choose will hold up well to grimy hands and dirt. Easy to clean and care for curtains will allow you to take care of them easily, so that you can keep them clean for your child's room. The type of fabric and embellishments will dictate the cleaning needs.


By basing your decisions on the room's decor, function, your child, and durability, you will be able to choose kids curtains that will work for your child and their room, as well as your life.
