Find out more about blackout blinds fabrics for children’s rooms and nurseries. Choose a blackout fabric Roman or Roller blind in a fun design and make sure your child gets a great night’s sleep.

Babies and young children need up to 11 hours sleep each night, as well as naps throughout the day. However, it can be difficult to settle down for a snooze when the sun is shining through the windows. That’s why The Sleep Council recommends keeping kids’ bedrooms as dark as possible at bedtime as this aids relaxation and creates the right environment for sleep. 

Roller blinds in blackout fabric
Kids’ blackout fabric Roller blinds look sleek and neat at the window. All of our Roller blinds come with either a cord-free mechanism or with child safety devices fitted as standard. For optimal performance choose a Perfect Fit blind. This clicks into place between the beading and glass of uPVC windows and your made-to-measure blackout blind sits snugly in the frame. The cordless blind is operated by a tab for ease and safety.

Calming colours
When it comes to creating a restful space, The Sleep Council also recommends using muted or pastel colours in preference to bright, primary colours, which can actually be quite stimulating. The soft neutral tones of our Twinkle Stars blackout fabric Roller blind is a perfect choice for a nursery.

Blackout Roman blinds
For a softer look, choose a Roman blind with a blackout lining. All our Roman blinds meet stringent EU safety regulations, with safety devices fitted as standard to keep control cords and chains out of reach of little hands. This gorgeous Bunting Chintz design captures the trend for all things shabby chic and is great for a young girl’s bedroom.
