May 04 2021

Children's Blinds

When it comes to children's blinds there are many choices available. Kids rooms should be a fun environment where they can enjoy playing around but also have a good night’s sleep. According to NHS children should sleep around 12 hours a day and good quality sleep is essential for their development. Having the right window coverings in the bedroom can improve your child's sleep by reducing the amount of light coming in and noise levels from the outside. That’s why it is important to carefully choose the right type of window blind for your child’s room. Redecorating your little one’s room is an exciting project, and we want to make it easy for you when it comes to choosing the right window covering for that space. Today we've gathered all the information about the best blind for children’s bedroom, so you can pick the one that suits your child's needs.

Blackout Roller Blinds

Made to measure Roller Blinds are a popular choice for children’s rooms. They are affordable, easy to use and can instantly change the look of the room. Roller Blinds are versatile as they are available in a wide range of colours and patterns. If you are on a budget, they are a perfect way to transform the room into a more playful and colourful environment. Pastel Roller Blinds such as our Banlight Duo FR Pink or Palette Ice Blue will add a delicate touch of colour to your room and look amazing in nurseries and children’s bedrooms. The fabrics are also easy to clean so you won’t have to worry about any spillages or sticky fingers.

Blackout Roller Blinds have a special coating on the back that will stop the light coming through the room. This backing is generally white/off-white colour. Any blinds that have the name 'Duo' in them will have a coloured backing. For example, our Banlight Duo FR Pink will have a pink backing, a Banlight Duo FR Sunshine will have a yellow backing etc. If the blind has an 'FR' in a fabric name it means it's fire retardant. Those fabrics will give your home extra safety and are perfect for little one's bedrooms. Blackout Roller Blinds will also darken your child’s bedroom and insulate the outside noise. Patterned children's blinds can be a practical alternative to wallpapers. For example, our Zootime Blackout Daytrip Roller Blind has a playful pattern that will add a fun accent and stand out in plain interiors.

For convenience and easy blind operation, you can choose to motorise your children's blind. Motorised blinds are child safe, due to no cords or chains hanging down.

Please note that Louvolite motors can not compatible with the Powershade remotes, which are supplied with the Senses Roller blinds.

Blackout Roman Blinds

Roman Blinds are another great blind type for children’s bedrooms. They are easy to use, stylish and made from high-quality materials. At Your Blinds Direct, we have a wide selection of Roman Blinds in beautiful colours and patterns that will suit various colour schemes. The blackout lining is a great solution for children's bedroom as it can darken up space and increases the thermal efficiency of a window covering. Roman blind fabrics are the same width as the mechanism, meaning you have fewer light gaps than other blind types. The blind will help to keep your child’s room warm in the winter and stop the room from heating up in the summer months. Roman Blinds are a great alternative to curtains. They are easy to fit and operated in a similar way as Roller Blinds. Bright fabrics such as Lima Blush or Gemini Sunshine can become a statement piece in your child’s room and add a splash of fun colour to it. Lastly, Roman Blinds are also a great investment. The timeless design of the blind along with the durability of this window covering will last you for years.

Roman Blinds are generally operated by a chain, but you can also choose to motorise them. Electric Roman Blinds are easy to install and convenient to use. All of our Motorised Roman Blinds are supplied with Eclipse Powershade remotes that are compatible with Eclipse Powershade Smart Controller. Please note that Powershade motors are not compatible with the Louvolite motors.

Venetian Blinds

Our Aluminium or Faux Wood Venetian Blinds are another popular choice for children’s bedrooms. These blinds are a durable and practical choice that will give you excellent privacy and light control. As we wrote in our previous blog posts, Venetian Blinds are not fully blackout. You will see some light coming through the cord holes and where the horizontal slats join. We would still recommend them to children's bedrooms and playrooms as they are easy to maintain clean and give you great light control. However, if your child is sensitive to light changes it might be better to choose between Blackout Roller or Roman Blinds.

Our Aluminium Venetian Blinds come in a wide range of colours that will look amazing in children’s bedrooms and playrooms. For example, our Pimpernel Venetian Blind in a bright red shade will enhance any room with its vibrant colour.

They are a great choice if you are looking for a classic and durable window covering for your child's room. Moreover, this blind type is also waterproof and easy to keep clean which is always an advantage when it comes to window dressing for children rooms.
