The Right Window Treatments For Las Vegas Children’s Bedrooms

Darik Neilson

In the past we’ve talked about selecting the best bedroom window treatments in Las Vegas, depending on the specific needs of your room. One room might have the most specific needs of any kind: children’s rooms. Though childrens’ bedrooms share several of the same requirements with normal bedrooms, they also have some specific requirements as well. So let’s examine some of the most important qualities to keep in mind when choosing window treatments for the kids in your family.

The Safest Window Treatments for Children’s Rooms

Childproofing the home is a process that all families are probably accustomed to - and window treatments are no exception. Depending on how young your children are, certain window treatments are a serious no-no. For very young kids, any sort of window treatment that has a hanging cord that might injure or strangle a child is ill-advised - which means no corded blinds, shades, or draperies. Even without cords, children are natural climbers, so disregard any window treatment that may be easily yanked off its support. Finally, be aware to shy away from any window covering with a paint or seal that may emit dangerous vapors.

As an alternative to any of the above mentioned window treatments, go with a product with fewer moving pieces and lacking any sort of cords or wires. Plantation shutters are a great choice for a child-friendly window treatment, in addition to cordless cellular shades. Our Polywood® and Ovation® shutters have finishes that don’t emit any fumes. Every one of these window treatments steer clear of any unnecessary peril to your children’s safety.

Window Treatments That Maintain Privacy for Children’s Rooms

The first consideration we discussed in talking about bedroom window treatments was privacy, which is doubly important when choosing a treatment for the windows in your child’s room. Blinds, whether they are traditional or vertical, can generally be seen through at specific angles, making them ineffective at guarding privacy. Many shades and draperies, though providing more effective coverage compared to blinds, might show shadows that may be seen from outside your house.

When you need to ensure your children’s room has the privacy it needs, plantation shutters are once again our number one recommendation. By shutting the moveable louvers, plantation shutters let you completely block off the view into your child’s room. Various lines of shades and drapes can be found in blackout options, eliminating most outside visibility with their opaque texture.

Window Treatments For A Comfortable Kids’ Room

Ask any Las Vegas parent and they’ll tell you that children are stubborn sleepers. Some days it might be a snap to have them sleep, while other nights it can be a nightmare. Parents understand that light control is handy in getting children to sleep, but what you don’t know is that the room’s temperature comfort level may also factor heavily in which of those two outcomes occur. The best window treatment can give you optimal control of the light and temperature of your children’s bedroom.

Polywood plantation shutters are the be all end all in energy efficient window treatments. Properly maintained, they can block heat transfer through your window by up to 45%, and are close to 1600% more effective at insulating than metal blinds. For an additional boost, combine shutters with UV-protecting window film, which blocks nearly 87% of solar energy. Taking advantage of these window treatments can help you to get your children to sleep, meaning you might get more rest as well.
