Your bundle of joy is due to arrive in a few months and you’ve just about gotten all the preparations done for their arrival.
The wallpaper looks beautiful, the new cot is too adorable for words, and the toys are stored safe and sound in their tiny toy chest. Now all that’s left is to buy a window treatment and their room will be perfect!
Here are some tips that’ll make your decision easier!
How to Choose the Best Window Treatments
Avoid Using Floor-Length Drapes
Given that this will be your little one’s room for a long time, you have to think long-term with every choice you make. So for window treatments, go with an option that’s not going to be within their reach when they get to crawling age. Otherwise, they’ll use it to wipe their hands and to climb up or pull down the fabric, and that’s just a whole mess in itself.
Install the Rod Right
If you’re having drapes installed, you might lose some light, especially if the rod for the drapes are installed directly above the window frame. Having the rod installed slightly away from the edge will allow you to move the drapes completely away from the window without blocking the light or the view.
Get a Pattern
Not a fan of the plain white drapes? Introduce some patterns to the overall theme. You’ll find plenty of whimsical, simple, and elegant fabric designs. Have them installed with compatible plain curtains behind them for dimension. This’ll work well for when you need some soft light in the room for afternoon naps.
Get them Installed by a Professional
Especially if you know your DIY skills are not up to scratch! Having your hardware professionally installed will ensure you that your drapery is securely fixed to the wall with appropriate anchors.
Keep Them Childproof
Never have blinds installed without the required safety devices. Exposed cords can be potentially dangerous for your child, as evident by the many cases of strangulation that have been reported. Either have a safety device installed to keep the cord out of reach or consider buying blinds that have breakaway cords, which can break when pulled hard.
