Which Blinds Are Best For a Child’s Room?

22nd April 2016

Whilst having a beautifully decorated home is a priority for most people, when it comes to your child’s room, practicality beats aesthetics every time. Choosing the right blind that can withstand wear and tear is essential to ensuring your investment pays off.

Here at Barton Blinds, our experienced team are always on hand to advise on what blind may be best suited to your needs. We’ve listed some of the top types of blinds that would be perfect for a child’s bedroom.


Roller blinds possess the benefits of being easy to clean, and are durable enough to withstand use in any child’s room. These blinds are ideal for a practical addition to a bedroom, allowing you to fully control the level of light allowed in at any time.

Roller blinds have the added advantage of being available in a range of fabrics and styles, so that they can look great as well as providing a durable option, too.


With the aesthetic appeal of curtains and functionality of blinds, a roman blind can make a great addition to any child’s room. Available in a full range of colours and patterns, the soft material of roman blinds will enable you to find the perfect print to suit your child’s room, providing them with a relaxing environment to be in.


Blackout blinds are the ideal solution for a baby or young child’s room, blocking out the light to allow for easier sleeping. Blackout blinds ensure the room stays dark even in the lighter mornings and evenings that come with the arrival of summer, so your child’s sleep routine needn’t be interrupted by the seasons.

Likewise, blackout blinds are a great option for children of all ages if they are a light sleeper, or if they require an effective blind to block the glare of the sun from laptop and PC screens.


If you’re thinking of converting your unused attic space into a haven for your children, velux blinds are a great option. Providing a great level of privacy and light control without sacrificing on space, velux blinds make the perfect addition to an attic conversion that provides the ideal space for a child’s bedroom or playroom.
