Decorating My Kid’s Rooms – From the Nursery to the College Dorm

Curtain Rods and Drapery HardwareThe rooms of your children will likely deviate from the central theme of your home. As children begin to grow up, they want to impose their own tastes upon their living spaces. Wise parents understand the child’s need to have some control over his or her environment and will accommodate it when possible. One of the quickest and easiest decorating changes you can make involves your window treatments, including the fabrics, drapery hardware and curtain rods.

The Room Grows Up

As your child grows up, his or her room will also need to mature. For this reason, choose a window treatment style that will change with minimal work. Simple sheers over blinds with a flowing scarf may appeal to teenage girls, while younger children love the puffy, balloon-like look of a stuffed valance. For boys of all ages, you will probably want to keep it simple with clean lines and a minimum of fuss.

Planning ahead can help you make the room “grow up” along with your child. You can make decorating miracles happen with just fabric and hardware while keeping the walls neutral; this strategy will help you tailor your child’s room to his age and personality at each step of the way

Window Treatments for All Ages

Many decorators fail to consider the windows of a room as a major part of the overall scheme. Simply tossing on some mini-blinds or even a set of curtains simply isn’t enough to pull the room together as a complete package. You should consider the size and number of windows relative to the size of the room, and make sure that your windows aren’t overpowering the rest of the decor. If the window of a room isn’t the intended focal point, make sure not to force that appearance with your window treatments.

For the smallest of children, safety will be your primary concern. Make sure you place your baby’s crib or bassinet well away from any windows. Your child should not be able to reach the fabric or cords of any blinds or drapes. Older children may want to have some input on the types of window treatments that you use. If so, be sure to consider their desires when picking out the fabric, curtain rods and drapery hardware.
