Kids Curtains

Add a splash of color and fun to your child's bedroom with custom kids curtains. Get girly with fresh flowers, polka dots, lacy frills or a multi-ruffle panel. Add a bold color splash for boys or transform your son's room into an animal safari or sports park with a themed curtain. Whether it's your child's favorite colors or a print that coordinates with their bedding, BedBathStore.com kids curtains will be a popular and stylish addition to your child's bedroom.

When selecting kids curtains from BedBathStore.com, there are several important considerations, including style, fabric and size. There are a variety of curtain styles for children's bedrooms, including drapes and valances that can be matched to your child's bedding. Add a themed valance to a set of solid drapes to create a unified design. Large curtains can overwhelm smaller windows, so instead, consider a simple, colorful valance. For extra privacy, add a lower tabbed tier, or choose a combination of our long curtains and blinds.

Coordinating curtains with bed accessories creates a stylish, polished look for your child's bedroom. Window treatments by Jojo designs are available with matching crib, twin, toddler and even full and queen size bedding. This way, as your child grows from a crib to a larger bed, there's no need to change the curtains -- just swap out the sheet sizes!

Popular fabric options for kids curtains include cotton and a polyester/rayon fabric blend. Tabbed cotton canvas curtain panels allow natural light to filter through and can be hung using hidden back tabs. Cotton curtains, made from woven fibers, are a versatile option that can be as soft as voile or as sturdy as sailcloth. A brushed cotton finish adds texture and softness while standing up to your children's toughest play. Patterns can easily be incorporated into cotton curtains by a direct print or through weaving. Polyester/rayon blends are especially popular in young children's rooms because this fabric combination is easy to clean and wrinkle-resistant. Because this fabric combination is also easy to dye, many of the bolder, more colorful curtains will be made from this polyester/rayon blend.

Other curtain considerations include safety and convenience. Curtains that are fire retardant are a smart investment in your child's safety. If your child has an early bedtime, look for curtains that are well lined. When closed, these curtains will help darken the room, even when it's light outside, and set the mood for sleep. BedBathStore.com's Firefend kids thermal blackout curtains are both fire retardant and great at blocking light. They are available in a variety of solids and prints, with sizes ranging from cafe curtains to 84" long curtain panels. Another great option is Lighcatcher brand blackout curtains. These colorful curtains feature bright, juvenile prints and are available in all sizes.

Finally, be sure to carefully measure the window in your child's bedroom. Selecting Kids' Curtains
When decorating a child’s room you have many options. You can go sophisticated, girly, all-boy or choose a theme. Selecting kids curtains can be equally as daunting: should you choose curtains that go with the theme, a solid that goes with everything or a print?

The short answer is yes. Any of these options work, you just need to decide which one works for you.

  • Choosing Curtains For Kids Rooms
    As with any room, curtains can add the perfect finishing touch to a child’s bedroom. When choosing kids curtains, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:

  • Theme
    If you are decorating with a theme, it might be easiest to pick out a set of childrens curtains that coordinate with bed sheets and comforters with that theme. If you don’t want to do that, simply make sure the fabric and look of the panels doesn’t conflict with the overall theme—for example, dark, heavy curtains in a room with beach theme.

  • Child’s Age
    When decorating for young children, it’s important to choose curtains that don’t have tiebacks, beads, or any other items that could pose a safety hazard within their reach. A simple set of curtain panels will probably work best. For kids who nap during the day, a set of blackout curtains might be a good idea.

  • Fabric
    Fabrics in kids' rooms need to be both durable and easy to care for. Silk panels may look perfect with a princess-themed bedroom, but will they still be perfect when smeared with jelly from a six-year-old’s tea party?

  • Timelessness
    Children grow up fast; their tastes change even faster. Minimize future expenses by purchasing curtains that coordinate with a theme but will work without it. Solid colors and “grown up” prints usually have more lasting power.
  • Here are a few things to consider when choosing curtains for your kids:

  • Trends Fizzle Out
    What’s popular today may not be popular tomorrow. You might want to consider featuring your child’s favorite character sparingly. Kids change their minds frequently and you need to decide whether or not you’re prepared to buy new curtains any time soon.

  • Children Grow
    A pattern that is very young, like rocking horses or teddy bears, may not hold up as your child grows.

  • Energy Conservation
    Sheers are lovely, but they aren’t as energy efficient as opaque curtains. Try pairing sheers with regular panels to filter some sunlight during the day.

  • Safety
    Tiebacks and the like look nice, but if the room belongs to a young child they can be a hazard. Look at metal holdbacks which screw into the wall rather than fabric tiebacks that can be removed. Check that rods are firmly attached to the wall; children have been known to play hide and seek behind the curtains and you want to be sure the hardware is secure.

    Decide what’s important to you, then use your imagination.
