No doubt the walls have been painted and the baby furniture is placed in perfect position around the room. The baby shower is over or has been scheduled, and the gifts are strategically arranged to welcome your little one home. While you have put lots of thought into color schemes and themes throughout the room, have you thought much about the nursery window treatments? There are several important reasons to consider this, particularly with a baby on the way. Along with practical uses, custom curtains and window treatments will add just the right decorating touch.
First, consider how the room your baby will be sleeping in, takes in light throughout the day. Does the sun come up and stream through that room in the morning when you would rather the baby be resting? Does the sun instead set through those windows, creating a glare that will make napping difficult? Assess the kind of light your baby’s room gets and that will start your path toward choosing the right window treatment.
Next, consider safety. While your baby may not walk for many months, you should consider window treatments that protect her throughout her young years. For example, shutters and blinds are beautiful, but some may come with a cord that may prove to be a choking hazard to children. In some cases, these examples can be retrofitted with child-safe options. Examine the various styles with an eye not just to design and color, but for security as well.
There are plenty of safe options such as cordless blinds, roller shades (not the kind you grew up with!), or even such beautiful looks like the Luminette or the Silhouette, which diffuses and softens light throughout the room – perfect for baby’s atmosphere!
