Patterns, choose curtains with a pattern that reflects your childs interest. Some great patterns for girls are: butterflies, princess, flowers, polka dots, animals, cartoon characters or even a theme from a favourite t.v. show or movie.
Sheer Curtains, if your child doesn’t wish to cover her window with curtains, hang sheer curtains over the window, this will provide privacy, but you will still be able to see outside through the window. Sheer curtains will come in many colors to suit the bedroom decor. Sheer curtains will also fit in well with a princess or fairy themed room, and you could even use these curtains to create a drape above the bed for a real princes feel.

Solids color curtains, such a dark blue, forest green or lighter solid colors provide a masculine choice, although there is no fixed set of rules for boys colors, so ask your child for his favourite color and integrate this in his bedroom.
