Part of the joyful anticipation of waiting for the birth of your baby is the excitement of planning the decorating of the nursery. Whether or not you know the gender of your child before delivery, there are some factors to consider when choosing the window treatments for the nursery room.
No matter how beautiful they may appear, if your window treatments contain safety hazards, they are not for use in your baby’s nursery. Billowy, floor-length curtains look lovely and may be safe for the first few months, but will become a liability once your little one begins crawling. Avoid window treatments with dangling cords and pulls that can pose a choking hazard. Because curious babies put everything they encounter into their mouths, we can recommend safe, non-toxic fabrics that are perfect for a nursery.
Balloon shades are safe options that add a touch of whimsy to a nursery. Box pleated valances also work well and can be customized for boys and girls with either colorful piping or ribbon trim.
There’s nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby, but if a room allows too much light to stream in, it can make naptime more difficult. Control the light in nurseries with window treatments that feature blinds that darken the room during naptime but remain open at other times to stimulate babies’ innate curiosity. Top-down, bottom-up cordless cellular shades work well when paired with fabric window treatments. They also keep out winter’s chill and can keep rooms cooler in the hot summer months. Motorization options are also available for difficult to reach high-mounted or specialty windows.
Colors and Fabrics
If you plan to transition the nursery window treatments into the toddler years, you may opt for styles and primary colors that will work well for that age group too. If not, feel free to indulge with pastel faux silk pin tuck curtains with tiebacks decorated with infant motifs like rosettes or teddy bears.
