Color of the curtains is very important. Most of you might have already had a theme and the curtain’s color should definitely match the theme. You can go for dark colors in the initial stage, as it is very important for your child to have a good sleep. Later on, you can go for light colors like pink, sky blue etc.

Apart from these things, another thing to consider is the length of the curtains. In the early stage, long curtains won’t be a problem but when the baby starts learning how to stand, he might start pulling the curtains. So, better at this stage go for curtains with shorter length so that he can’t pull it. Also, consider the prints. You might even want to go for plain curtains, which too looks great.
