We all want to protect our children at all times. This also includes when they are busy with building blocks and toys in their playroom. You can’t always have your eyes on them at all times, so it’s imperative that they have child safe window treatments to stay safe. The saying is true, that toddlers and small children can get into something they shouldn’t in a split second. 

Outdated window coverings with dangling cords are unsafe for your children because they pose a choking hazard and can harm them quickly. Hunter Douglas creates window coverings, especially for families that are high-quality and easy to clean for kid-approved window coverings meeting regulations with child safety in mind.

Safety First

Safety is the most important item for a child’s bedroom or playroom. You should move all your child’s toys, furniture, beds and cribs away from windows and to another wall in their playroom and bedroom because they can climb on things and get to the window treatments in a heartbeat. 

The best way to child-proof a room is to install window treatments with a cordless or motorized lift to ensure their safety when they are not under parental supervision.

Sleeping Soundly

Another concern with any parent is ensuring that their children can sleep soundly no matter what time of the day or night. Young children take naps during the day, and it helps to have a room that is dark, quiet and cool for them to sleep better. This is important for parents too, so you can get a bit more time to sleep in and get more rest. Often, a playroom and a bedroom do double duty for children, or your toddler may fall asleep while playing if it’s about nap time.

Blackout or room-darkening window treatments are the tickets to sleeping soundly and for longer periods of time for kids. Modern blinds and shades are available in a large variety of beautiful fabrics and materials that, when closed are room-darkening for sound sleep.

Best Window Coverings for the Playroom

You can choose from a large variety of window coverings free of hazardous materials and certified safe for children, including blinds, shades, and curtains. All of these options have style and modern designs for other great features with a clean and tidy installation.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades

Cellular shades are a great choice as they are highly energy efficient, can darken a room, and they are easy to clean as well. They have tiny cells that are sandwiched in between two layers of fabric to trap air next to the window, keeping your indoor spaces cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. You can choose from a large array of high-quality and luxurious fabrics to complement your style and personality and add to your home’s energy efficiency.


Child-Safe Window Treatments

Blinds are available in many new finishes and materials, such as precious metals, to brighten up a room while providing privacy inside and being extremely stylish. You can choose from many colors that work well in a playroom, from neutral to bright and bold colors. They give you a sleek appearance, excellent durability, and they can put up with an active child’s lifestyle. Blinds are also allergen-safe products that resist dust, debris, and pollen to keep your child healthy.

Roller blinds are practical and highly customizable. Choose from many different fabrics for your child’s playroom in kid’s themes with bright colors for interest.

Curtains and Drapes

Choose Easy to Clean Window Treatments

Children have a way of getting things on window coverings that you don’t expect. It’s important to choose window covering options that are easy-to-clean. Blinds and shades are simple to keep clean with just the use of a feather duster or by using the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to remove dust and allergens.

Motorized Window Treatments

Automated window treatments are a great addition to your Smart home. They tie into your existing Smart home hub and can be operated with the touch of a button. They are streamlined and tidy looking, without cords or chains that can be harmful. You can program them to open, close, and adjust at specific times of the day and night for ease of operation. Their accessibility and convenience are unmatched because you can operate them with your Smartphone, tablet or with remote control if you wish, and they are certified safe for children.
