How to Choose Kids Window Treatments
Kids window treatments can make a big difference in the look of your child's bedroom. In addition, they help add privacy and block light when needed. Pottery Barn Kids has a great selection of curtains and drapes in a variety of styles, sizes and colors, so you can find something that coordinates with the existing decor.
Types of Kids Window Treatments
There are three main types of window treatments at Pottery Barn Kids -- blackout curtains, sheer curtains and Roman shades. Each of these has its own advantages, such as:
- Blackout Curtains: If you're looking for a curtain that darkens the room, then you want blackout curtains. Some of the options you may find available at Pottery Barn Kids include the Evelyn linen blackout panel, which comes in an array of fashionable colors. There's also the Quincy cotton canvas blackout panel, which is crafted from a lightweight cotton fabric with a light-blocking polyester lining.
- Sheer Curtains: You can layer sheer panels underneath blackout curtains for a stylish look, or you can hang them on their own if you like plenty of natural light. There are classic white sheer curtains, along with sheer panels embroidered with stars and butterflies. There are also tiered panels and those trimmed with pom-poms.
- Roman Shades: Another window treatment option for your child's room is the Roman shade. They're great for layering under curtains or hanging on their own. There are basic shades like the linen cordless blackout Roman shade and those with embellishments such as the bow valance Roman shade. You'll also find Bali® brand bamboo shades that are stylish and eco-friendly.
No matter which type of window treatments you prefer, make sure to measure carefully before shopping. If you're buying floor-length curtains or drapes, allow an inch or two of space between the hem of the curtains and the floor. It's better to have curtains that are a bit too short than those that drag on the ground.
Window Hardware and Accessories
In addition to kids window treatments, Pottery Barn Kids has a wide selection of window hardware and accessories. There are curtain rods in various sizes, along with decorative finials for the ends. There are finials in lots of different colors and styles, including those with hearts and stripes. The selection also contains rings for hanging curtains and sturdy metal brackets for a durable installation. You'll also find metal holdbacks for keeping the curtains open during the day.
