The Best Roller Blinds for Children’s Rooms May 29, 2020 Choosing roller blinds for a child’s bedroom can be a challenge for any parent. You want to provide your children with only the best products, and you want to know they’ll last for a long time. If you’re in the process of redecorating your child’s bedroom and need some curtain-inspiration, read our top 3 roller blind recommendations below. Thermal Blinds As the temperature drops and the evenings grow frosty, keeping your children warm and cosy becomes your priority. So, what are the best ways to do this? A great place to start is to make sure their bedroom is a place of warmth and comfort. Investing in thermal roller blinds for their room is an excellent, cost-effective way to ensure that your children get the best sleep every night. Thermal blinds keep out the cold while simultaneously trapping heat inside your home. Heating bills can add up during the winter. That’s why supplementing your home’s insulation with thermal blinds is a great way to keep your family warm and save on heating in the long run. Blackout Blinds If you live in a busy neighbourhood, the constant stream of streetlights and headlights through your windows in the evenings can really affect your children’s sleeping habits. Sleep is especially important for children. Well-rested children are better able to sustain concentration throughout the day. Adequate, regular sleep also boosts immunity—particularly important in the winter—and aids mental development. Excess light during night hours can disrupt our body’s internal “sleep clock” and interfere both with the quality and quantity of sleep our children get. Blackout roller blinds are made specifically for this purpose. They keep excess light out and let the mind and body rest peacefully in the dark. As an added benefit, blackout blinds can also be combined with thermal blind designs for maximum efficiency, making them perfect for the colder months! Printed Roller Blinds If you are looking for creative ways to add colour, personality, and joy to your child’s bedroom, printed roller blinds could be the perfect solution! They provide the same light filtering and privacy benefits of regular roller blinds with the added flair of custom-printed imagery. Read through a few ideas below for inspiration! Great Print Ideas for a Child’s Bedroom 1. Starry night sky – Let your children drift into a peaceful slumber and the sweetest dreams with a starry sky printed roller blind. 2. A beautiful landscape – Add space to a small room while inspiring creativity and a sense of adventure with a spectacular landscape print. 3. A Map of the world – With a map printed across their blinds, children can start gaining an interest in geography and cultures around the world. 4. Their favourite things – If you want to encourage their own personality and style to grow, print their favourite animals, flowers, rainbows, cartoon characters, or even foods and let them enjoy a creative space made specifically for them.
