Decorating a nursery is a fun and memorable moment for expecting parents, which can often take a lot of time and consideration given there are a lot of safety precautions to consider. One such feature that quickly becomes a cause for concern is the type of window covering to choose for your nursery. Though a pair of beautiful gossamer nursery curtains blowing in the breeze seems like the perfect idea for a nursery, it’s often not a practical solution. It may be hard to come up with a window furnishing solution that both eliminates the need for dangerous cords and promotes sleep by blocking out light and noise. At Blindo, we look at some of the things you should consider when choosing nursery blinds, and the best blinds for nursery rooms.
Best blinds for nursery: Things to consider
When it comes to choosing the right window solution for your nursery, consider cordless blinds or motorised attachments. Children are naturally curious, so things such as dangling cords or nursery curtains can quickly capture their attention. You can remove this risk by keeping your crib away from the window or investing in motor-controlled blinds.
Babies and toddlers spend a lot of time sleeping during the day, so finding a pair of nursery blinds that offers a great degree of light control is vital to helping your little one get to sleep. Blinds come in a series of light blocking options, from sheer opacity to complete blockout. For maximum light control, try complete blockout roller blinds with a headbox to help stop any stray streaks of light.
Blocking out noise
Your little one will be sensitive to anything that disrupts the senses, and noise is the number culprit. If you live in the suburbs or near a busy road, it’s all too easy for noise to filter through. Just like with light control, blinds that are built with a thicker material will give you better noise filtering options.
Nobody enjoys sleeping in a hot room, and your little one can be especially sensitive to changes in temperature. Considering most of a room’s energy is lost through the window, good quality nursery blinds can block heat from leaving the room and stop chilly air from entering it.
Though your baby or toddler isn’t likely to appreciate your interior design skills, a nice style of blind can make a room appear tranquil and calm. If your toddler is in the moving stages, a pair of nondescript blinds are less likely to grab their attention, which means they’re less likely to play with them. We recommend roman blinds or roller blinds, as they come in a nice range of neutral colours to suit any style of home.
Best blinds for baby room: Roller blinds
Roller blinds are a simple, classic solution that offer good privacy and light blocking options on a budget. Easy to custom fit with a motorised pulling system, roller blinds offer the most versatility out of all the blind options. Added benefits include easy installation, adaptability to any style of home, and timeless elegance and sophistication that no other blind can match. Roller blinds are a popular choice for nurseries, as they can be easily paired with a matching headbox.
