Rules for choosing curtains in the nursery
Window decoration in the nursery should be attractive, fashionable and at the same time functional. Curtains must meet the following requirements:
- Convenient transformation mechanism.
- Environmental friendliness and hypoallergenic.
- Aesthetic beauty, matching the style of the interior of the room as a whole.
- Easy to care, wash.
- Natural material.
- Good color and quality preservation.
- Protection from the scorching rays of the sun in hot summer days.
- Providing noise absorption and, if necessary, darkening.
Avoid using expensive heavy drapes. They collect a lot of dust and are not intended for a room in which children spend most of their time.
Becoming a victim of frequent games of hide and seek, drapes will constantly get dirty.
The choice of design curtains in the nursery
Practical parents choose roman blinds. Dense flat fabric securely closes the window openings. You can choose as plain versions, as well as styled options with large prints.
Curtains in the nursery for a boy is easier to pick up than for a girl. Boys quite satisfied with the classic version with a simple design.
Girls always want to add frilly drapery, flounces, spectacular folds to the design. Be sure to discuss with the child the length of the curtains. Today, short curtains in the nursery are popular, but they may not appeal to everyone.
A universal solution may be the purchase of roller blinds in the nursery. One simple movement allows to change the design of the room beyond recognition.
Rolling around on a roller, these curtains are assembled, completely opening the view from the window to the child's eyes. On a too sunny day, they just as easily close the window opening. Obvious advantages of roller blinds:
- made of dense material that does not transmit light;
- easy to attach to a window or frame;
- Height adjustment available.
Choosing curtains in the nursery, keep in mind the fact that children perceive the world differently. The as-yet-not-perfect nervous system is quickly overloaded, especially from bright colors.
In the nursery, everything should be organized so that the child had the opportunity to fully relax.
The color scheme strongly influences the psychological and emotional state of children. Making a nursery - the case when sometimes you have to sacrifice fashion trends in favor of caring for children.
Bright curtains can be chosen only if the tonality of the room as a whole is restrained and neutral. If you designed the whole nursery in bright colors, it is important that the curtains are muted colors.
If the walls of the nursery are decorated with large prints, stickers of multi-heroes, inscriptions, it is better to choose plain-colored curtains - beige, milky, ivory.
Conversely, if the wallpaper is uniformly light, you can afford to look at the curtains with large drawings, animal prints, floral patterns.
In general, always follow the simple rule when choosing a color: either play on contrasts, or choose curtains two shades darker or lighter than walls. Look at the photo of curtains for the nursery to get a portion of inspiration.
To promote the development of a child’s sense of harmony, be careful when choosing accessories.
All sorts of small pillows, a bedspread on the bed and other elements of the interior should ideally be in harmony in color with the curtains on the windows.
