If you recently became a parent for the first time or you just added a new bundle of joy to your family, you’ve undoubtedly seen the impact a baby can have on your life and your home. For many parents, style and contemporary décor take a backseat to making their homes as comfortable and convenient as possible for themselves and their babies.

While you’re busy setting up the bassinet, babyproofing every sharp corner and hard surface in your home, and putting together an endless array of toys, car seats, and high chairs, you may forget one key component of making your baby as safe and comfortable as possible: getting the right window treatments for his or her room.

It’s no secret that a baby who sleeps through the night can be a godsend for parents, and controlling the lighting in your baby’s room can be a huge factor in determining the amount of sleep everyone in your family gets during those first few hectic months. It’s also important to make sure any window treatments you install are safe for babies and children of all ages.

For a list of window treatments that are stylish, safe for children of all ages, and effective at controlling the amount of outside light that enters your home, check out Blindster’s suggestions below:

deluxe fabric

Although we ship every window treatment with a free cord cleat to make them safer for homes with babies, children, and pets, cordless shades may be the ideal window coverings for your baby’s room. In addition to easy cordless operation, our Deluxe Fabric Roller Shades are also excellent at blocking out light and insulating the room from both hot/cold weather and loud noises. Installing these shades makes it easy to achieve the ideal lighting, temperature, and sound level in any room in your home—especially the room where it counts the most.

Controlling the lighting in your baby’s room doesn’t always mean making the room as dark as possible. In fact, many babies thrive in rooms that are bathed in soft, natural lighting as opposed to harsh lighting from overhead light fixtures and lamps. As the name implies, our Deluxe Cordless Top Down/Bottom Up Cellular Shades can be opened and closed from the top and bottom, giving you the ultimate control over privacy, lighting, and view of the outside. Like our Deluxe Fabric Roller Shades, this window treatment is also excellent for providing sound and noise insulation.

blackout cellular shades

As every new parent knows, the slightest disruption in your baby’s routine can cost him or her—and everyone else in your family, for that matter—precious hours of sleep. Sometimes that disruption can be something as fleeting and unpredictable as car headlights shining into the room or a brief flash of lightning during a rainstorm. Our Premium Blackout Single Cellular Shades are perfect for eliminating the possibility that your baby’s rest will be disturbed by sudden bright (or not so bright) lights from the outdoors. In addition, these shades can also be ordered with a cordless option at no extra charge, making them the ideal safe and effective window treatment for your baby’s room.

wand option

If your baby’s room has large windows, or if you just want an alternative to drapes and curtains, our Fabric Vertical Blinds will fit the bill perfectly. Created using a soft and light-filtering fabric, these blinds can cover huge windows and doorways up to 129” wide and 129” long. Choose from 10 unique colors when placing your order, including Contrast Ivory, Contrast Light Green, and Contrast Claret, and add an optional PVC backing for better light blocking and insulation as well as a wand control for enhanced child-proofing.
