Nursery Window Treatments: Baby Styles for Baby Smiles

Nursery design is an essential part of a new parent’s home. The baby’s room must be calming and soothing to encourage sleep, be comfortable for parents while feeding and playing with their little one, all while being safe and fun for the child as he or she grows.
Here are a few of our favorite nursery designs featuring window treatments from The Shade Store.
Colors to Match Any Décor
Whether your nursery plan is all neutrals or awash with bright colors, The Shade Store has hundreds of material options to fit your palette. In the photo above featured in Apartment Therapy, the parents opted for a clean, gender-neutral nursery that would grow with their child as their tastes evolved. Kiera Kushlan and Jessica Centella of Washington, D.C.-based interior design firm Residents Understood opted for a mostly white color scheme with decorative accents like an oriental rug. White walls and Flat Roman Shades in dark gray are a timeless combination that could easily work in any style of bedroom.

In the photo above from Pamela Chelle Interior Design, the Relaxed Roman Shades pick up on the pink from the sweet floral wallpaper adorning the accent wall. The gathered fabric shades soften the straight lines of the wood blinds.
We also offer a multitude of patterned materials in hues of pink and blue, yellow and green, and every color in between. If you’re still deciding on your nursery décor, order a few (or a lot!) of our free swatches to coordinate your window treatments with the rest of the room.
Blackout Shades to Help With Sleep
Most new parents would agree that they need all the help they can get in the sleeping department. Blackout shades help block evening and morning sun and can even assist in dampening outside sounds, hopefully allowing baby to sleep a little longer. Blackout linings can be added to Roman Shades, and blackout material options are available for Roller Shades, Pleated Shades, and Cellular Shades. In the photo below, interior designer Regan Baker opted for lined Flat Roman Shades with a custom matching Valance.
If your nursery windows tend to be drafty, blackout shades and linings reduce drafts and assist in keeping out the cold during winter months.

Safe Shades for Children
When choosing window treatments that will be around children, safety is the number one priority. Dangling cords can be dangerous for little fingers. We recommend cordless shades for nurseries and children’s bedrooms, and our cordless options have been certified Best For Kids by a third party lab recognized by the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA).
