The Best Boy Room Window Treatments

Having children changes everything, from your bank account, to how you spend your Saturday nights, to your decorating choices. While watching Frozen for the 89th time on a Saturday evening isn’t any adult’s idea of fun, decorating with kids in mind can be a blast. For many of us, it’s a chance to go a little crazy with colors and themes, and remember what it was like to be young.

To help you make the best decorating choices for your home and your children, we’re going to tackle one of the most important parts of a child’s room—the window treatments! First up: boys of all ages!  Not only do window treatments set the stage for a room’s look and feel, but there are also important safety concerns to consider. Let’s take a look at window treatments for boys from infancy through the college years:

Before we begin, a quick reminder: always make sure your window treatments are properly installed, childproof, and free of choking hazards. Safety comes first, style second.

Boy Room Window TreatmentsA Bouncing Baby Boy:  While we’ve already discussed window treatments for nurseries, there are a few things to consider when decorating for a baby boy in particular. A fabric valance over a window blind or shade is a great way to make a room feel finished while injecting it with some extra personality. For boys, tailored box pleats are simple yet stylish. If you’re searching for blinds with boyish good looks, we recommend Décor® aluminum blinds by Hunter Douglas (featured left).  Thanks to their LiteRise® cordless system, a gentle push or pull with your hand will raise or lower these blinds instantly. They’re perfect for parents whose hands are always full. Plus, when it comes to babies, cordless blinds are best.

Boy Room Window Treatments Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds with PermaTilt® Wand Control systemFrom Toddler to Tween:  As your son gets older, he’ll begin to develop his own interests. One week it might be pirates, the next, astronauts. To keep up with his hobbies and keep your decorating budget in check, celebrate his obsessions with easy-to-update furnishings, like bed sheets, toys, and window treatments. A set of fabric curtains emblazoned with robots is a lot easier to replace than a sci-fi themed mural painted on the wall. Speaking of robots, Hunter Douglas Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds with PermaTilt® Wand  Control system (featured right) are futuristic window treatments that will delight sons and fathers alike.  The PermAssure® wand replaces dangerous cords, or you can go completely motorized for complete convenience and effortless operation. Your blinds be easy to open and shut, and who knows? They might even inspire your son to one day pursue an engineering degree!

Boy Room Window Treatments Strickland's Palm Beach™ polysatin shutters with Palmetto™The Wonder Years:  As your tween becomes a teen and experiments with his independence, he’ll probably start spending a lot of time in his room. Because teenagers love their privacy above all else, window blinds, vertical blinds, and fitted shades are a must. To shut out light while he’s watching Netflix with friends or playing video games, Palm Beach™​ polysatin shutters from Hunter Douglas are attractive and effective. If you prefer the look of drapes (and if you can get your son to agree!), plaid patterns, bold colors, and geometric shapes are great choices for any young man.
