Cheap Nursery Curtains & Today’s Bestsellers

What to consider when buying nursery curtains

Are they thermal?

Thermal curtains are ideal for reducing the amount of outside noise that comes through the window into the bedroom.

They also keep room cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Ideal for a baby’s nursery.

Do they block out light?

Babies sleep at all times of the day. If you want to keep their nursery dark in the daytime or on those summer evenings, it’s worth investing in blackout curtains which will aid you in settling your baby at any time of the day.

Are they safe?

Curtains with cords, beading and embellishments should be avoided as these could potentially be a choking hazard to a young child.

It’s also best to keep nursery curtains short and simple rather than long, so they are more out of reach from children.

Will they match the room decor?

The curtains you choose all depends on individual taste, but if you opt for curtains which are neutral in style and colour you may be able to use them for longer than say ones which have bold animal print on.

FAQ’s Nursery Curtains

Are curtains necessary for nursery?

Blackout curtains are essential for a nursery as darkness promotes sleep and they will essentially help your little one off to sleep, especially in the summer months when it is light in the evenings.

How do I make curtains safe for my baby?

Don’t have tie up or tassel cords and make sure that the cot is placed away from the curtains and out of reach.

Final Thoughts

My overall top pick are the Nicetown Kids Blackout Curtains as they are whimsical and have a white voile overlay which makes them extra luxurious and ‘magical’.
