5 Great DIY Window Covering Ideas for Kids’ Rooms

There’s something about decorating a child’s room that brings out the creativity in all of us. I, for one, sewed my very first curtains for my daughter’s room. They were polka dot and purple and, to this day, bring a smile to my face…because, really, where else can you hang large polka dotty fabrics from the ceiling and get away with it?Here are five fun and creative ideas for window coverings in kid spaces. And the best part is they’re do-it-yourself, which adds a personal touch to the space…and a little extra left over in your wallet.

The simple tie-back panel is often overlooked, but this is a fuss-free, personality-packed solution. One panel keeps costs low, which is a bonus. This style is particularly appropriate for the tall, narrow windows that are often found in older homes’ bedrooms.{found on designsponge}.

Stripes are all the rage, and their chunkiness seems to work well in every room of the house – living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Painting stripes onto blackout curtains, like this, is a genius idea for keeping your kids’ room dark while simultaneously upping the style factor of blah blackout fabric. Super fast and easy.{found on thecraftingchicks}.

Turn ordinary bland tab-top curtains into custom coordinated window coverings without making a single stitch. The secret? Fabric glue. Find any trim you’d like and glue it onto some plain mass-produced curtains for this lovely detailed, and feminine look. I especially love how the ribbon is both on the top and bottom of the panels.{found on bhg}.

Roman shades might sound a little intimidating, but they’re not so bad to DIY…and they look so crisp and custom in any window. Not to mention they’re safe, especially in a kids’ room, where excess hanging fabric can sometimes be a hazard. My favorite part of making roman shades is the fact that they can easily incorporate blackout lining without sacrificing style.{found on jenduncan}.

So sheets don’t have to be confined to use on the bed! Take plain white sheets and a strip of patterned fabric, and you have yourself a bright, fun (but not over-the-top juvenile) window covering. The large grommets add age-appropriate sophistication and make the curtains easy to open and close. These are great DIY curtains if you’re looking for low cost, high impact.{found on prudentbaby}.
