When you have re-decorated your child's room or when you feel it is time for a change in curtains you might want to take a closer look at kids’ blackout curtains and thermal curtains. There are some great advantages to both types and if you cannot find the design and style of curtain your child prefers you could always look at linings. Here is more on why they are great for children's bedrooms.

Kids’ blackout curtains

Depending on things like age, what kind of nap time they have and health children need between 10 to 18 hours of sleep a night. Sometimes it is hard to get children to agree to that though! One issue can be that a bedroom is too light. In sunnier climates or during the summer when days are long and it is still so bright outside, the light coming in the room can make it hard for them. To help a great addition to their room are kid's blackout curtains. These keep the room dark as they are far better at blocking out sunlight, 99% of it in fact. Now the room is much more conducive to sleeping in.

Kids’ thermal curtains

In colder climates or in winter time another issue in a bedroom can be that it is hard to keep warm. One way to do this without having to play with the heating and pay for it is to use thermal curtains. These are perfect for offering insulation to the windows preventing drafts and cold air from getting in. This also keeps warm air from getting out. You can get them in a variety of styles and colors still.

Thermal and blackout linings for your kids’ curtains

There may be a number of reasons why you would rather not buy a whole set of new curtains but still need the effect that thermal or kids’ blackout curtains give a room. The budget may not allow it, perhaps you are not sure which ones to opt for, maybe the child loves the curtains they already have. Whatever the case another option is to look at thermal and blackout linings.

Thermal linings have cotton and polyester blend material with foam or aluminum for the insulation. Blackout linings, on the other hand, are made from a material that is ultraviolet resistant so stops light from the sun from passing through. They are easy to attach to existing curtains. Should you want the blackouts in the summer and the thermals in the winter you can change them up.


Often younger children's rooms are bright and creative and then as the older children and teens start to develop more mature tastes, changes happen. Curtains are a great opportunity to either make a statement, add color or interest, or to blend in and compliment the room. Whatever design and style you choose thermal curtains and kids blackout curtains or Kids curtains are a great way to keep your children warm and in a darkened room more suited to a great night's sleep.
