Blinds For Kids’ Rooms


WORDS Cheri Morris

A child’s room is a place to play, but also to relax and sleep. The right window treatment makes all the difference. Here are three options to choose from:

Luxaflex manufactures Duette Architella shades, which have a double honeycomb design. The air layer in the cells works like an insulating blanket, helping to keep a kiddies’ room cool in summer and balmy in winter. The Luxaflex child-safe LiteRise cordless operating system lets you raise and lower Duette shades with a touch of the handle and the SmartCord system has a retractable cord mechanism.


Blind Designs has a comprehensive range of blinds. Block-out fabrics allow you to control how much light comes in, thus keeping a lid on early summer sunrises and ensuring naptime stays naptime. If you opt for a cord control mechanism, you can specify cord and chain heights that end out of a child’s reach for safety.


Plantation Shutters offers easily adjustable louvred shutters that children can open and close themselves. The shutters, which suit a minimalist look, are effective in controlling not only light but also temperature and noise levels.
