The first option is to have a Double Curtain with a sheer fabric and blockout fabric.
This is the ultimate window covering, as it:
As well as being highly functional, Double Curtains can be custom made to suit your interior style. With Australia’s largest range of curtain fabrics, including our budget-friendly Curtains+ range of fabrics with complimentary making, you can be sure to find the perfect fabric colour, material, and print or weave at dollar curtains + blinds.
We have curtain and blind fabrics that are fire retardant, environmentally friendly PVC-free, or made from recycled polyester, and certified by Greenguard and Oeko-Tex to ensure no harmful chemicals are present for a healthier home.
Roller Blind with Curtain
This solution works well in a nursery, and can be done as either:
Both options offer similar benefits as a Double Curtain, including automation, but are slightly more affordable.
Roman Blind with Curtain
Our Soft Roman Blinds are made with a high-quality lining that adds to the insulation benefits while ensuring the fabric does not shift, shrink or distort. These can be constructed from any of our curtain fabrics to enhance the soft furnishing scheme in your nursery. Some clients prefer for their Soft Roman Blind and Curtain fabrics to match, while others will use contrasting colours or prints for added interest.
We also have a wide range of Hard Roman Blinds available in blockout, sunscreen and translucent fabrics. These bring crisp, clean lines to your space and suit traditional to modern interiors.
Plantation Shutters with Curtain
If child and pet safety is a priority, Plantation Shutters are cord-free and highly durable. Best of all, we custom make to suit any shape or size window or door, including arch windows, for a perfect fit. As well as looking dreamy, Plantation Shutters are incredibly cost effective and look right at home in a traditional or modern style interior.
Does your nursery have a bay window? It’s hard to look past a Plantation Shutter – bay windows and Shutters are a match made in heaven! Similarly, they’re also the perfect fit for a Hamptons style home. Read our 101 guide to Shutters here.
While a Shutter alone can see some light creak through, dressing the window with Blockout Curtains or Drapes over the top eliminates this issue. Adding a Curtain also greatly improves insulation and noise reduction.
Cellular Blind with Curtain
Just like a Roller Blind and Curtain, you can select either:
Cellular Blinds offer similar benefits as Roller Blinds in that they:
However, Cellular Blinds have the added benefit of greater thermal performance. The unique honeycomb structure traps air and minimises heat transfer through your window. It also offers better sound absorption.
Another benefit of Cellular Blinds worth mentioning is they have smaller light gaps – a high priority when considering the right window covering for a nursery! And there are several child safe control options to choose from, including lift + lock, cordless or motorised.
One of our favourite features of Cellular Blinds is the range of design options, allowing you to open the blind from the top down, bottom up, or in both directions. So, if your nursery faces the street and you want to maintain privacy but still have a view to outside, you can open the blind from the top down.
Don’t forget a Pelmet or Casette and Side Channels
Earlier we mentioned even a crack of light can keep Baby awake so for total light control, it’s worth adding a Pelmet or a Casette and Side Channels depending on the window covering solution you select.
These conceal the hardware, creating a more streamlined look and can offer greater safety – and most importantly, eliminate light gaps to achieve complete darkness. Pelmets and Side Channels also minimise heat transfer, improving the thermal performance of your window coverings.
All of these duo window covering solutions are excellent options for a kids room or play room where having total light and privacy control is a must.
