Family Friendly Friday-Drapery Family Friendly Style
I have a young family and a new home with large windows what kind of window treatments hold up with family in mind?
Drapes from the bottom of moldings or ceiling and hitting right at the floor make a beautiful statement, do not recommend puddling drapes with little ones. For fabrics, wovens are great for cleaning and your best option is to use indoor/outdoor fabrics ; easy to clean.
If you have a little one who thinks the drapes are their blanket, then opt for a shade in more family used areas and drapes behind sofas and in your bedroom, places where they are not around as much.
Your pets are kids too so keep them in mind when selecting your window treatments.
If you love a lighter white drape consider a bottom color that doesn’t show dirt about a toddler’s height up..
Blinds/Drapery cords – please read this article about the right type of cords to use… very important for safety with little ones and your pets too.
