My kids room is using curtains and I'll will change every 2wks-1mth (is it too long :? ).
My room is using roller binds and I need only using wet cloth to wipe the binds. Save some wahing.
Hope this helps. :D

shurley197323, I use roller blinds for my kids' room coz it's got an 80% black-out factor which is good when they nap.

It is also easier to maintain, just wipe once a week before changing bedsheets :wink: Hope that helps!

Roller blinds. Yap. Same reason as Andaiz. My son can't sleep at night if there's even a small ray of light. The roller blinds cut out most of it.

Hi, shurley197323, I've been using Roman blinds for both my kids room. They are easy to maintain cos' can be machine wash. I normally dust them with magiclean duster & only wash them once or twice a year. According to the curtain sales person, if there is strong sun, wash every 6 mths, if not once a yr is gd enough. I just make new sets of curtains & roman blinds for my hse, will b ready in 2 wks time.

I am using wooden venetian blinds for a good balance of ventilation and blocking out sun/KP_people. :)
