In the past we’ve talked about selecting the best bedroom window treatments in Las Vegas, depending on the specific needs of your bedroom. One room might have the most specific needs of any kind: children’s rooms. Though childrens’ bedrooms share several of the same requirements with adult bedrooms, they also have some specific requirements as well. So let’s examine some of the most important traits 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 an activity that all families are likely accustomed to - and window treatments are no exception. Depending on how old your children are, certain window treatments are a explicit no-go. For very young kids, any kind 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. Aside from cords, children are natural climbers, so disregard any window treatment that might be easily yanked off its support. Lastly, be sure to shy away from any product with a paint or finish that might emit dangerous vapors.
As an alternative to any of the above mentioned window treatments, go with a product with fewer moving pieces and without any sort of cords or wires. Plantation shutters are a great choice for a child-friendly window treatment, as well as cordless cellular shades. Our Polywood® and Ovation® shutters have finishes that are completely safe for kids. 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 thinking about 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 offering better coverage compared to blinds, might show shadows that may be seen from outside your home.
When it comes to ensuring your children’s room has the privacy it needs, plantation shutters are once again our primary recommendation. By shutting the moveable louvers, plantation shutters let you completely block off the view into your child’s room. Particular lines of shades and drapes can be found in blackout options, eliminating most outside visibility with their thicker 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 may 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 determine which of those two outcomes occur. The perfect 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 installed and maintained, they can block heat transfer through your window by up to 45%, and are nearly 1600% more effective at insulating than metal blinds. For an additional boost, combine shutters with UV-protecting window film, which blocks close to 87% of heat from the sun. Taking advantage of these window treatments can help you to get your children to sleep, which means you may get more rest as well.
