How to Choose Blinds for a Teenager’s Bedroom

Your child is growing up. As their needs change, so too will your window coverings. Window blinds for privacy, blackout blinds, and more—we go through what you need to consider when choosing the blinds for your teenager’s bedroom

Privacy

A child’s teenage years are full of change. This can be overwhelming. A space they can call their own is essential and protecting their privacy in a place like their bedroom is a must. A set of well-constructed blinds can help. 

Blinds are excellent for creating a private space without turning the room into a dark, damp cave. Venetian blinds allow for enhanced light control, giving your teenager a better balance of both some privacy and some healthy rays.

Sleep

Light plays an important role in your teenager’s health, productivity, and mood. Teenagers on average need around eight to ten hours of quality sleep per day to maintain their health, which is more than the seven to eight hours recommended for adults. Blackout blinds could be the perfect solution for a teenager who is struggling to sleep. These blinds create an optimally dark environment that will improve your teenager’s sleep in no time.

Study

Teenagers will also spend a fair amount of their waking hours studying, from intermediate school through the early years of university when they may still be living at home. Most teenagers study in their rooms, so you want to make sure that their environment won’t distract or hinder their productivity. 

One big problem that teenagers often encounter is the sun making their textbook or laptop screen difficult to read. Glare from uncovered windows can be surprisingly disruptive. This is where sunscreen blinds can come in handy. Sunscreen blinds reduce UV rays and heat by up to 97% while still allowing tranquil soft light into your teenager’s room. This creates a cool, focused environment with minimal glare, ideal for getting stuck into homework and studies. 

Aesthetics

Young people start to express their personality more fully in their teenage years. They will want to hang posters, decorate desks and wardrobes, set up lights, put up art, and do anything else they can think of to stamp their identity on their personal space. What you don’t want to do is choose a style of window covering that might throw off their “vibe” or clash with their chosen style.

Blinds are an excellent option due to their elegant neutrality, meaning they can suit just about any style of room decoration and sometimes even enhance it. With NZ Blinds, you can design your blinds yourself to suit the stylings of your flourishing teenager.
