Window Shutter Ideas for Children's Bedrooms

11:49AM 02 November 2021

Are you looking for a way to dress your children’s bedroom windows that will provide maximum privacy and safety, while still being very functional and looking great? Wouldn’t minimal cleaning fuss be a nice bonus, too? For these reasons and more, shutters work perfectly in a child’s bedroom. So, let’s have a look, shall we?


Benefits of Shutters for Children’s Rooms

All the usual benefits of window shutters apply to children’s rooms, in addition to a handful of benefits that are unique to this special room in the home:

Safety: Certain types of window dressing ideas aren’t ideal for small children. For example, blinds that have a long drawstring. It can be very dangerous for a baby or a small child to play near a string that’s hanging down. Our shutters are installed safely inside of the window frame, with no pieces that dangle down to the floor. This keeps the whole ensemble out of reach of children.

Security: Plantation shutters can add an extra layer of security to your home. When they’re sealed up, they make it impossible to see inside of the home, so any would-be intruders won’t be able to peek inside. Shutters also help with privacy in general. Slats can be angled to let light and fresh air in without making it easy for people to see inside your home as they walk past.

Sleep: Shutters can help children to sleep better at night by blocking out some of the outside noise and sounds. They also block sunlight from entering the house when it’s time for sunrise. During the longer days of the year, you might want your child to sleep before the sun has fully set, making shutters especially useful.

Style: The cherry on top: shutters look great in a child’s room. In other rooms of the home, shutters have a certain degree of elegance and authority, but when combined with the decor in a child’s room, they can be fun and playful.


Choosing The Perfect Children’s Room Window Shutters

If you’re preparing a nursery, you may already have a colour scheme in mind. If you’re thinking of getting pink shutters, or blue shutters, or another strong colour, here’s something to keep in mind: Before you know it, your baby will be growing up, and those bold and bright colour shutters will still be in the room as your child grows up. It’s quite fair to assume that they won’t want a bright pink or a baby blue focal point in their room.

Consider adding a splash of colour to your nursery or child’s room with paint, furniture, and decorations rather than a shutter that probably won’t fit the space for very long. When you install durable shutters like ours, they will last for a very long time, long after your baby becomes a kid and then a teenager.
