Best Blinds for Your Baby and Child’s Room March 29, 2017 The first 2 months of a baby’s life is really nothing but a blur to new parents. A continuous cycle of feeding, changing, sleeping any time of the day or night are exhausting and all consuming. So if there is anything which can help new parents at all it is sure to be a welcome addition to those early years. Our blackout blinds are perfect for a baby’s room, especially if they have trouble falling back to sleep after feeding in the night. Routine is so important for all concerned and our range of thermal blackout blind will keep damp and chills away from your young baby. Blackout doesn’t have to mean dark coloured blinds either. These purpose build blinds have a special flocked acrylic coating which will block out substantial amounts of light, even if you choose a white, cream or other light coloured blind for the room. Our Kew Collection comes in 13 designer shades, that have a matching colour both on the front and back of the blind, giving a smooth cohesive look from inside and outside of your home. They also run as long as 3 metres in width, for an immaculate smooth finish, making them a very popular choice for both the domestic and commercial markets. Of course where children are concerned, safety is paramount. We recommend a motorised blind, or a much shorter chain length so that children are not tempted to pull and swing on them which can cause serious injury. As your baby grows into the toddler and pre-school stage, this is the perfect time to introduce a more fun finish to their bedroom or playroom through colourful roller blinds. Think about what colours you can already work within his or her room, as well as their favourite sport, their favourite animal or perhaps they’re passionate about ballet or fire engines? If you’re not sure where to start or dubious about how they will look, Pinterest is a great place to start. Simply type in ‘children’s roller blinds’ in the search term and be swarmed by thousands of ideas. We can then take your idea and create a custom Designer roller blind for your child’s room! Unlike curtains which are likely to house mould and mildew brought on from temperature extremes, our blackout roller blinds protective coating repels those nasty germs and can be vacuumed or easily spot-cleaned when messy little fingers get a hold of them. Other advantages to roller blinds over curtains are their ability to: Resist dust Resist fade Moisture tolerant Flame retardant This is good news for the general health of everyone in the home, but especially young babies who are still building a healthy resistance to the elements around them. Fortunately, one thing blinds do have in common with curtains is their variety. At NZ Blinds, we offer products in many different textures, colours, and if there is a specific image you would like to have printed on a blind, the options are simply endless.
