Best child friendly shades, custom Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Sheer shades near Charlotte, North Carolina (NC)

Decorating your child’s bedroom is an exciting part of any parent’s life. Whether you know exactly what type of decorations you want to add or you are just starting your journey for your child’s bedroom, there are many routes to explore and consider when creating the perfect place for your little one. While this certainly means things like colors, cribs, toys, and other features, it also means deciding what window treatments are best for your little one’s room. Window treatments in a child’s bedroom can be somewhat tricky. You don’t want to have any dangling cords, but you also wanted to operate smoothly and soundly. Plus, you wanted to add ample shade so that your child can sleep when they need it most throughout the day for those necessary naps and all through the night (fingers crossed). Fortunately, we are here to discuss the best child-friendly shades from Hunter Douglas.

Best Child-Friendly Shades for Safety

What when it comes to your child, baby proofing the house is one of the first things that many nesting parents do. You baby proof the stairs with gates, you baby proof the toilets with latches, and you place any hazardous materials out of the way. In a way, Hunter Douglas has baby-proofed window treatments with their selection of child friendly shades. That is why a variety of their window treatments have child-friendly operating systems that do not feature looped or loose pull cords.

One example is the LiteRise® operating system. This is a cordless system that holds blinds and shades in any position the moment you let go. Simply push the window covering up to raise the shade for sunlight and pull down to lower for privacy and shades. Where you release, your shades will stay. No more dangling, dangerous cords. The LiteRise® operating system is available on many Hunter Douglas shades, including Silhouette® Window Shadings, Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades, and Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. This is just one example of why Hunter Douglas offers some of the best child-friendly shades on the market.

Best Room-Darkening Shades for Children’s Rooms

If there is one thing that little ones do best, it’s napping! However, natural light from the sun and moon and artificial light from car headlights and street lamps can keep them up and result in a cranky kid. Luckily, Hunter Douglas offers some of the best child-friendly shades on the market thanks to their varying opacity levels. If you want to block out the most light, window treatments made of opaque, room-darkening material or window treatments that come with a liner are best.

From Hunter Douglas, we recommend Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades. These shades combine the energy-efficient construction of a cellular shade with the clean lines and simplicity of a roller shade that provides ample light blockage. The shades are available in both semi-opaque and room-darkening fabrics, so your little one can get just the right amount of light. With 48 different colors that range from neutral grays to vibrant red, these shades also let you spread your creative wings.
