If you’re looking for new or replacement treatments for your kids’ rooms, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. After all, there are numerous options out there. At F&R Interiors serving the greater Los Angeles area, we’re more than happy to help you understand the features and benefits of all Hunter Douglas treatments—and to help you find the right solution for your windows. Read on for some tips!

Enhancing Sleep

Whether your child is 6 months or 6 years old, you might want to consider finding a bedroom treatment that will enhance their sleep (whether for nap or for nighttime) by blocking out as much light as possible. Shades with room-darkening fabrics can help here, including the Vignette® Modern Roman Shade. This versatile product is also available with a blackout liner or the Duolite® option, which essentially gives you two shades in one by offering a regular front shade and a blackout back shade that can operate independently of each other.

Child Safety

Safety is a big factor for any space a child inhabits. This includes ensuring that choking hazards aren’t present. Because many older window treatments have dangling cords that can strangle kids and pets, they should have some safety features added or be replaced entirely. cordless treatments are great for kids’ room—an automated system like PowerView® Automation is the cream of the crop. PowerView lets you control the treatment’s movement with the touch of a button. Another good choice is LiteRise®, which lets you raise and lower the treatment by pushing up or pulling down on the bottom rail.

Playful Aesthetics

Fun fabrics and colors can help a child feel excited about their room. Hunter Douglas offers numerous products that come in a variety of colors, designs and textures to appeal to a child’s whimsy. One good choice is the Duette® Cellular Shade, which also offers a honeycomb design that helps insulate the window, keeping the outside air out and the inside air in, so you can better control the temperature in the room. Even more, they help cut down on external noise, which can help reduce commotion while your child is trying to sleep. As you’re deciding on your “fun/playful” look, just remember that a window treatment can be an investment, so a good bet is to find something that will grow with your child. Something too juvenile might need to be replaced in just a couple of years, so don’t be afraid to explore some more “mature” looks as well.
