If there's one thing parents of new babies can collectively agree on, it's the importance of sleep. When bub sleeps well, everyone is rested, and life is good! But when bub (plus mum or dad) don’t sleep? Don't even go there…
It's no wonder most parents will do everything in their power to make sure baby's room is a comfortable, safe and tranquil sleep environment. So, which type of window treatments are best for baby rooms? Keep reading to find out!
Best blinds for the nursery
When it comes to choosing nursery blinds or nursery curtains, there are a few things to consider. You want a window covering that can block light, heat and sound – not to mention, one that looks stylish once it’s installed! Here’s what to look for when making your purchase.
For blocking light
One of the key things to achieve in a nursery is low or controlled levels of light. Even during the day, the darker the room, the easier sleep will come.
If the room is already pretty dark, even in the middle of the day, any type of blind or curtain with blockout fabric will do the trick. However, if the room bears the brunt of the sunshine, it’s worth investing in double roller blinds.
Double rollers do a great job of blocking out light, making them perfect for encouraging sleep. You've got the option of different degrees of light filtering and insulation, plus they'll help you maintain the room temperature year-round. For maximum light blocking ability, pair curtains and blinds together.
For insulating the room
Unlike older kids or adults, babies can't regulate their own body temperature for a few months. It’s for this reason that keeping the nursery warm in winter and cool in summer is essential.
To insulate baby’s room, we recommend installing blockout blinds (otherwise known as blackout blinds) or nursery curtains with a blockout fabric. The thick fabric that these window treatments are made from will work to stop too much heat from passing through or escaping the windows.
For all-round functionality
With the right combination of style and practicality, blockout vertical blinds are a great choice for baby's room. The fabric panels of these blackout blinds can be adjusted for ultimate light control. Simply open them for a bright and cheery playroom or keep them closed for a light-blocking effect at nap time. As an added bonus, the state-of-the-art tracking system ensures verticals are easy to use and as safe as possible.
For complete peace of mind, you also can also avoid window treatments with chains, ropes or chords altogether, like our plantation shutters. You can’t go wrong with a stylish and safe product like shutters! For more reasons to invest in shutters for your home, check out this blog.
