What to Consider when Choosing Blinds for Children’s Rooms

The best blind for your child’s room ultimately depends on your own style, budget and what you prioritise most. Have a think about your space and what you require your blinds to do. Do you need to block out the direct sunlight? Are you looking to combat uncomfortable temperatures? Are you looking for something colourful or bright? Does your little one simply have an obsession with unicorns? It really is up to you, but we’ve listed the most important factors we think you should consider when trying to choose the best blind for your kid’s room!

Light Control

We love letting in loads of natural light but when you have a child who is trying to sleep there is nothing more important than having the ability to completely block out the light. A blackout blind or a blind that offers effective light control such as venetian blinds is a fantastic choice.

Privacy

Everyone values their privacy, but when it comes to your little ones it’s a priority! Opting for good quality blinds that give you more control over your privacy means that you don’t need to worry about on lookers .

Child Safety

At Unbeatable Blinds, we always put child safety first. Put your mind at ease when you shop with us and be rest assured that your child is never at risk. All our made to measure blinds are supplied with free child safety devices to prevent any risk caused by controls.

You can minimise this risk further by moving beds, cots, and furniture away from windows and ensuring chains and cords do not twist, become tied together or create a loop. If you require more child safety clips for blinds you already have in your home, we will happily send them out to you free of charge, just give us a call on 0333 321 4050.

Easy to Maintain

Kids can be messy so it’s important to choose a blind that can be easily cleaned. We offer a range of blinds with an easy to clean coating and blinds made from PVC that are super easy to wipe down.

Aesthetic

With loads of different styles, patterns, and fabrics to choose from it’s important to consider how it will look aesthetically. If you want to keep things stylish but simple, you can opt for a more neutral coloured blind. Or, if you want to make more of a statement choose a bright or patterned blind.

Neutral shades or subtle patterns and textures can often give the allusion of a larger window. If you opt for this style of blind can trick the eye into overlooking the size of the window.

Bold patterns and textures have also been increasingly popular this year. If you’re looking for the latest look for your child’s bedroom, then have a look at our animal and jungle prints!

Renter Friendliness

To help your little one get to sleep, it’s important to ensure they have the right environment, but sometimes that’s not always easy when you live in a rental property.

If your landlord doesn’t want any holes drilled or changes made to the interior, then it can be tricky to find the right furnishings and blinds. If this sounds like your situation, then not to worry, we have the perfect solution! Perfect Fit Blinds can be easily fitted onto uPVC windows and doors meaning there’s no need for drills or screws. This makes them the number one choice for renters as they don’t result in damage to your walls or windows. We recommend our cellular perfect fit blinds for children’s rooms as they’ll keep the room warm and cosy all night long.

FAQ’s

Do you need blackout blinds for a nursery?

If you’re looking for the best blinds for your baby’s nursery, then you’ll want to consider blackout blinds. Although not a necessity, a blackout blind can provide total darkness throughout the day, so there’s no need to worry about bright sunlight when they go down for a nap in the afternoon.

What are child safety clips?

Child safety clips are used to reduce the risk of loose chains and cords on your blind. These small plastic hooks are attached to the wall or window frame next to the bottom of your control chain. You can then loop your control chain around the hook to keep it taut and out of the way. Child safety devices should always be fitted a minimum of 1.5 metres from the floor to ensure safety.

What blinds are safe for children?

All blinds are safe for a child’s room when fitted correctly with the relevant safety device. However, if you want to be more cautious then one of the best blinds for children’s rooms tends to be roller blinds. Roller blinds only require one control chain which can be easily tucked away with a child safety clip.
