10 NURSERY CURTAIN IDEAS FOR STYLISH NURSERY DRAPERY
1. DO I NEED CURTAINS IN THE NURSERY?
Regardless of the nursery design style or the budget constraints, consider adding curtains to the nursery. We love how curtains can enhance the nursery's aesthetics, but the right nursery curtains also keep out sunlight and help maintain the room at a comfortable temperature so you can get the baby to sleep.
2.what are the BEST CURTAINS FOR THE NURSERY?
When choosing curtains for the nursery, we prefer room darkening curtains, or blackout curtains that are heat-reflecting and UV-blocking.
Room darkening curtains are made with a fabric liner that’s not quite as thick, thus allowing some light to pass through. If the nursery is already quite dark or you rather not have the nursery completely dark, room darkening curtains will work for your space. On the other hand, if you prefer to completely block out all of the light entering the space then nursery blackout curtains are the way to go.
3. WHAT ARE BEST NURSERY BLACKOUT CURTAINS?
Let's just say that not all nursery blackout curtains are created equal. The best nursery blackout curtains will provide a near-total blackout effect in the nursery, drape beautifully and look high-end, all at a great price point.

4. MEASURIng nursery curtains
One of the biggest nursery design mistakes is hanging curtains in the nursery that are either too large or too small. Nursery curtains that are too large will overwhelm the room, and adding curtains that are too small will look out of place.
To get the best measurements for your nursery curtains, measure the width of the window and then multiply it by two to get the width of your curtains. And to find the proper curtain length, measure the distance from the top of the rod to three-eighths of an inch above the floor, and add 1-3 inches, depending on how you want the curtains to pool at the floor.
5. how to hang CURTAIN RODS in the nursery?
Hanging the nursery rods is another area that frequently befuddles many parents. We like to hang nursery curtains so that they are higher and wider to make the window appear big and allow maximum light into the room when curtains are open. Generally, the rod is hung about four inches above the window frame. As for the length of the rod, add around 10 to 12 inches for each side of the window.
6. THE BEST NURSERY CURTAIN FABRIC COLORS
When choosing the nursery curtain fabric colors, it is best to pick the color palette that works with your overall nursery design. Go with neutral nursery curtains that have a similar tone to the nursery walls to give the space a softness and make the curtains recede into the background. On the other hand, nursery curtains that contrast with the nursery walls can add a dose of energy to the design.
7. PATTERNED OR SOLID NURSERY CURTAINS
Nursery curtains are a great way to add visual interest to the nursery and add interest to the design. Whether patterned or solid- choose nursery curtains that work with the nursery scheme and colors.
8. ECO-FRIENDLY NURSERY BLACKOUT CURTAINS
There are eco-friendly nursery blackout curtains made with natural materials like linen, organic cotton, and hemp that are excellent at darkening the nursery and are sustainably sourced.
9. PAIRing NURSERY CURTAINS WITH A BLIND
Pairing nursery curtains with blinds is a great way to create a focal point that's layered and sophisticated while darkening the nursery even more.
10. THE BEST hardware for hanging nursery curtains
Because nursery blackout curtains are heavier than other curtains-choose curtain rods that can handle the weight. Though there are many ways to hang curtains on a rod, curtain rings are a popular choice that make opening and closing the curtain easier.
