How to choose safe window treatments for kids’ rooms

When choosing the right window treatments for your kids’ rooms, you have to consider form, function, and safety above all else. Children are creatures of habit and they rely heavily on routine to have healthy and happy lives 🤸‍♂️. Light and noise can affect them very easily, so having effective window treatments for kids’ rooms is paramount. Apart from preventing a grumpy child, you also have to consider the safety of the window treatments for kids’ rooms! Some options are hazardous to children and must always be avoided.

Let’s take a look at the best window treatments for kids' rooms that tick the boxes when it comes to safety and functionality, but also look good at the same time!

Custom Roller Blinds for the Kids’ Bedrooms

The humble roller blind is a safe bet for the children’s bedrooms. Custom roller blinds are great because you can customise the way they look and operate and rest assured that they aren’t hazardous to your kids 😇. Shades by You complies with all the safety regulations set out by ACCC. This means that regardless of the type of window treatment you order from us, it's guaranteed to be safe in your home.

Roller blinds are a versatile and extremely practical solution for any room in the house. They are sleek and simplistic and enhance the look and feel of your interior design. They also function as budget-friendly heat insulation during the winter, particularly when hung in the Back Roll or Under Roll position. Learn more about this fitting method in our article, “Which Way Do Roller Blinds Hang?”.

We create custom roller blinds that are chain-operated. This smooth system is quiet and affordable, making it a quick and easy way to update your kids’ rooms. Choose from a wide range of fabrics to update your kids’ rooms and add some colour to their personal space 🥳. Additionally, chain-operated roller blinds come with a chain tidy to ensure that the chain is well out of the way and not a risk to your family.

Alternatively, opt for our SOMFY motorisation package and take your custom roller blinds —old or new— to the next level. The SOMFY Sonesse 30 WireFire RTS motor allows for smooth, quiet and electric opening and closing of blinds - no chains or wands to contend with.

Blackout Roller Blinds for Better Sleep

Better yet, try our blackout roller blinds to create a darker and more consistent light-level in the kids rooms. Artificial lights like street lamps and car headlights can easily disturb their slumber, particularly if you live on or near a main road. Blackout custom roller blinds are great window treatments for kids’ rooms and nurseries because they guarantee a dark, cosy space for your precious angels to sleep.

Blackout roller blinds don’t have to be boring, either. Shades by You offers a range of fabrics in our blackout range so that you can customise the look and feel of your window treatments to suit your personal taste.

Timber Shutters: Safe and Stylish Window Treatments

Last but certainly not least are the ever-stylish timber shutters! These are great window coverings for kids’ rooms for a multitude of reasons 😍. Firstly, they are super effective for shielding your kids from the sun without keeping you in the dark all day. Secondly, you can still see some of what’s going on outside even if they’re tilting the sun away, perfect for the watchful parent. And lastly, timber shutters are easy and safe to operate for you and your kids. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
