Decorating a child's room can be fun and rewarding. For the best outcome, consider these simple tips as you plan and implement your ideas.

Including older children in the process gives them a sense of accomplishment and an opportunity to express their tastes and individuality. If your children are young, consider their gender and age. If a room is shared, choose colors, motifs and furnishings in styles that please both.

Although it is tempting to decorate with trendy themes such as superheroes or cartoon characters, try to use a general theme that will grow with the child. Accessories, bed linens and knickknacks are easier and less expensive to replace than furniture, carpeting and other major design features.

As you decorate, remember the windows. Windows let in natural light and fresh air and connect the inside with the outside world. They can be used as a primary design element or a harmonizing element that blends with other decorative features. Window coverings should be versatile, easy to clean and attractive. Use them to block light, let light in and complement the colors and patterns of the room. Here are a few tips on choosing curtains for a child's room.


Choosing Curtains for a Child's Room

There are fantastic choices for curtains for kids' rooms. An array of fabrics, designs, colors and textures can create a window dressing with zing and character. In selecting curtains, keep in mind how the room is used and the personality of your child.

If the bedroom is also a playroom, you will want curtains that are easy to open and close so that you can modulate light, heat and air. Bright colors are stimulating and cheerful. Pastel colors are soothing, and dark colors are somber.

When selecting fabrics, go with those that are stain-resistant and easy to clean. Curtain length is also important. Floor-length curtains are not advisable for bedrooms or playrooms with young children, who may pull the curtain down or get tangled in cords. Instead, go with curtains that rest on the sill or just below the sill.

For young children, curtains with patterns, motifs or decorative touches give a sense of whimsy and fantasy, create a pleasant atmosphere and piqué the imagination. Select curtains that insulate against drafts, darken a room when needed and muffle sound.

Blackout curtains are a perfect solution for a child's bedroom. Deconovo's blackout curtains for kids' bedrooms are available in colors that complement any palette.

You can choose a length suitable for the age and personality of your child. Some curtain models glitter with stars, shimmer with abstract designs or glow with shining flowers.
