The Best Blackout Curtains for Your Nursery: A Complete Guide

Welcome to's complete guide to choosing the best blackout curtains for your little one's nursery!

As experts in custom curtains for over 10 years, we're here to help you create the perfect sleep sanctuary for your baby.

Let's dive in and explore everything you need to know about blackout curtains for nurseries.

Why Blackout Curtains Matter for Your Baby's Sleep

Getting good sleep is super important for babies. It helps them grow and learn. But bright light can make it hard for babies to fall asleep and stay asleep. That's where blackout curtains come in handy!

Blackout curtains are special curtains that block out most or all of the light from outside.

They're different from regular curtains because they have extra layers that stop light from coming through.

This helps make the room nice and dark for sleeping, even during the day.

How Blackout Curtains Help Your Baby Sleep Better

Here are some big ways blackout curtain panels can help your baby sleep:

  • They make the room really dark, which tells your baby's body it's time to sleep

  • They help your baby sleep longer without waking up from bright light

  • They keep the room cooler in summer and warmer in winter

  • They can even help block out some noise from outside

Picking the Best Blackout Curtains for Your Nursery

Now, let's talk about choosing the right blackout curtains for your baby's room. There are a few important things to think about:

How Well They Block Light

The most important job of blackout curtains is to block light. Look for curtains that say they block 100% of light. These are called total blackout curtains. 

Some curtains only block some light - these are called "room darkening" curtains. For a nursery, total blackout is best.

What They're Made Of

Blackout curtains can be made from different materials. Here are some common ones:

  • Polyester: This is a popular choice. It's strong and easy to clean.

  • Cotton: This is soft and natural, but may not block as much light on its own.

  • Linen: This looks nice but might let some light through.

  • Velvet: This is very good at blocking light and looks fancy.

For babies, it's important to choose curtains made from safe materials. At Dolcewe, our curtains ade all Oeko-Tex certified or non-toxic. These are safe for your baby.

Size and Style: Getting the Perfect Fit for Your Nursery Curtains

Choosing the right size and style for your nursery curtains is crucial for both functionality and aesthetics. Let's dive into the details to help you make the best choice for your baby's room.

Measuring for the Perfect Fit

  1. Width Measurement:
    • Measure the width of your window frame and add 4-8 inches on each side for optimal coverage.
    • For a fuller look, multiply the total width by 1.5-2 times for gathered curtains.
  2. Length Measurement:
    • Decide where you want your curtains to fall: sill, below sill, or floor length.
    • Measure from the curtain rod to your desired endpoint.
    • Add 2-3 inches for hem allowance.

Always measure twice to ensure accuracy. Consider using a metal tape measure for precise measurements.

Choosing the Right Hanging Style

  1. Rod Pocket:
    • Pros: Classic look, easy to install
    • Cons: Can be difficult to open and close
    • Best for: Stationary panels or less frequently adjusted curtains
  2. Grommet:
    • Pros: Modern appearance, slides easily
    • Cons: Limited fullness options
    • Best for: Contemporary nurseries, frequently adjusted curtains
  3. Tab Top:
    • Pros: Casual look, easy to hang
    • Cons: Gaps between tabs can let light through
    • Best for: Relaxed, bohemian-style nurseries
  4. Pinch Pleat:
    • Pros: Elegant appearance, good light control
    • Cons: More expensive, may require professional installation
    • Best for: Traditional or formal nursery designs

Consider your daily routine. If you'll be opening and closing curtains frequently, opt for grommets or a traverse rod system for ease of use.

Color and Design

Blackout curtains come in lots of colors and patterns. You can choose:

  1. White or Cream: These classic choices create a bright, clean look that can make your nursery feel more spacious. They're versatile and can complement any decor style. However, keep in mind that lighter colors may allow a small amount of light to filter through.
  2. Soft Pastels: Colors like light pink, baby blue, or pale yellow can add a gentle touch of color while maintaining a soothing atmosphere. These hues are perfect for creating a calm, dreamy environment for your little one.
  3. Bold Colors: Deep blues, rich purples, or forest greens can add drama and effectively block light. These colors work well in larger rooms or as accent pieces.
  4. Neutral Tones: Grays, taupes, or beiges are excellent choices for a timeless look. They're easy to coordinate with changing decor as your child grows.
  5. Patterns: Fun patterns like stars, animals, or geometric shapes can add visual interest and stimulation for your baby. Consider patterns that align with your nursery theme.
  6. Textured Fabrics: Velvet, linen, or embossed designs can add depth and sophistication to your nursery decor.

Remember, darker colors usually block more light than lighter colors.

How to Hang Your Blackout Curtains

Once you've chosen your perfect blackout curtains, it's important to hang them right. Here are some tips:

  1. Measure carefully: Make sure your curtains are wide enough to cover the whole window.

  2. Hang them high: Put the curtain rod a few inches above the window. This helps block more light.

  3. Go wide: Let the curtains extend past the sides of the window to stop light from sneaking in.

  4. Use a curved rod: This helps the curtains wrap around the sides of the window for better light blocking.

  5. Add a valance: A valance is a short curtain that goes across the top of the window. It can help block light from the top.

Taking Care of Your Blackout Curtains

To keep your blackout curtains working well and looking nice:

  • Dust them regularly with a soft brush or vacuum attachment

  • Wash them gently when needed, following the care instructions

  • Iron on low heat if they get wrinkly, but check the label first

  • Rotate them sometimes so they wear evenly

More Ways to Make the Nursery Dark

Blackout window curtains are great, but here are some extra tips to make the room even darker:

  • Use blackout blinds under your curtains

  • Put black electrical tape around the edges of the curtains where light sneaks in

  • Use a draft stopper (like a long pillow) at the bottom of the door to block light
