Window Treatments for Nurseries
The most important consideration in a nursery window treatment is safety. Shades with long, dangling cords can be a potential hazard for babies. So it’s important to look for a cordless alternative. You can choose from manual cordless lifting systems or motorized lifting systems, like PowerView® Automation. With PowerView, you can adjust your shades with a simple push of a button, tap on a mobile device or even a voice command — which can come in quite handy when you have your hands full.
The Beauty of Shutters
Besides the fact that shutters are cordless by nature, they’re quite practical. Interior shutters are not only durable, they help reduce outside noise and offer excellent light control. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters, for instance, are perfect for high-traffic areas and are easy to clean with a light vacuum or damp cloth. If your nursery has pastels, a white shutter might complement it really well. Another benefit of shutters is that you can close them completely to block a good amount of sun at naptime.
Room Darkening and Blackout Shades for Sleeping Soundly
To prevent bright light from filtering into the nursery and waking your baby in the early morning or during an afternoon nap, look to room darkening or blackout shades. These shades are available in many styles, including roller, Roman, and cellular options, making it easy to choose a window treatment that complements the room’s décor.
You might consider Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which are available with the LightLock™ system (an exclusive for Duette shades). The LightLock system’s patent-pending side channel delivers unparalleled darkness, to keep your little one dreaming peacefully. Plus, the cellular design of Duette adds a layer of insulation at the window, providing outstanding energy efficiency.
Fun and Functional Styles
Roller shades, Roman shades and cellular shades all come in a wide range of colors and designs, making them ideal for dressing up a nursery. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, for example, have lots of fun, playful colors and patterns in room-darkening fabrics. Their timeless, classic look is something that could work just as well in a teenager’s room as a nursery. Another good option, Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades combine the simplicity of a roller shade with the insulating construction of a honeycomb shade.
