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.

I hope this list of the best nursery curtains was helpful.
