When it comes to options for window treatments, there is no shortage of choices. But when you throw a toddler or young child into the mix, things get a little more complicated.
Your needs tend to change. You want something fashionable but safe; pretty but also practical; clever in design but also long lasting. Before you know it, you’ve got quite a long list on your hands.
Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’re here to help – here’s our shortlist of things to consider when choosing window dressings for your child’s bedroom.
- DO avoid floor-length curtains
Sure, they look great but once your child gets their hands on them, you may find them pulling, climbing or even wiping their hands all over your nice, new curtains.
Keep them short, simple and out of reach. Our Cosiflor® blinds are the perfect solution – customised to fit any window shape or size, and fit perfectly within the window frame. The innovative design of our Cosiflor® pleated blinds also make for a safe, child-friendly blind, with no loose cords.
- DON’T let your dressings upstage your windows
Curtains and drapes can typically reduce the width of your windows, and block a considerable amount of glass even when opened.
Blinds are a great way to avoid this; our Cosiflor® honeycomb and pleated blinds are fully retractable. Not only do they provide the perfect way to dress your windows for privacy, but also allows you to let in both natural light and air with the full capacity of your windows when you need and want to.
- DO use your dressings to enhance your theme
Working with a theme in your child’s bedroom? Window dressings are great for styling; you can add a whimsical touch to your child’s room by choosing a fun, patterned fabric.
The flexibility of Cosiflor® blinds’ design offers a solution to any window configuration or design vision – whatever the shape, size, colour or pattern you desire.
- DON’T leave your dressings for last
We often think of them as the last feature to add to a room, but leaving your window dressings for last is a mistake. Choosing the look of your window fabric makes it easier to colour match with the array of paint colours on offer.
