Decoration for children’s room and shopping for matching fabrics for your kids’ bedding, curtains & drapes can be a lot of fun. Even if you do not have a lot of money, you can still buy fabulous bedding and curtains for your kids. To help you find the right fabrics and curtain materials to turn your kids’ room into a cozy and stress-free place, here are some tips.
Choose a theme
Before you go shopping for some bedroom trappings, you should decide on a theme first. For instance, if your little girl loves Disney princesses, you can turn her room into a magical place that is fit for a princess. On the other hand, if you have a little boy who loves animals, you can go for a safari look complete with animal baby bedding.
Once you have decided on a theme for your little ones' bedroom, you may now start taking measurements of the windows and other areas where you want to put the curtains and drapes. Pay close attention to the height and width of the windows. Give at least two inches allowance to your measurements to ensure that you will have enough fabric.
Colours, prints and style
The colours of your curtains should match the hues inside the baby’s room. If you have a baby girl and most of her stuffs are coloured pink, you should consider buying pink curtains and drapes to match the rest of the nursery decorations. Likewise, if you have a baby boy, you should match the colour of his bedroom curtain with the rest of his things. The goal here is to create a harmonious and cozy atmosphere in the bedroom. When it comes to curtain styles, you should decide whether you want a frame to floor type or a simple one that fits into the window frames. Frame to floor types of curtains creates a formal and elegant atmosphere while the frame fitted type offers a more casual look.
You need to decide which type of curtain materials you want to use in your baby’s bedroom. Heavy satin and silk are best suited for formal settings while patterned cotton fabrics and sheers go well with casual settings. If you want the room to have a casual and playful atmosphere, you should invest in light-coloured cotton or cotton blend fabrics.
