New Roman Shades in Hank’s Sporty Blue Bedroom

Hank’s sporty blue bedroom got a window treatment upgrade the same weekend I installed Abbey’s pretty pink roman shades. He had the same dingy honeycomb blinds as the rest of the house which I’m now a master at removing. Here’s where we left off in his room.

Hank’s shade was a breeze to install. It was a different model than Abbey’s and I much preferred the installation instructions on this one. I didn’t have any obstacles at all, just needed the basic equipment: pencil, tape measure, drill, screwdriver.

Like Abbey’s room roman shade, I decided to do a single, full width printed fabric roman shade in here. I found a cute grey with narrow blue plaid patterned option at While I’ve been going all in on the pink in her room, I thought the grey would be more of a classic look for Hank. Plus, he’s already changed his décor from super heroes to sports, so at this point, who knows what’s next!

His also has a single circular chain mechanism which helps us not have cord issues in here. I think it’s safer to not have dangling cords, but also helps limit tangles and breakage which would likely ensue in both of their rooms. (I know this from experience!)

I’d normally want to put curtains up on a window like this, but since his dresser partially blocks the window while his room is arranged for optimal floor play space, I’m going to hold off for now. The fabric roman shade is a nice compromise and still gives more of a finished look to the window.

Not much left to do in here except maybe replace his fan with something more traditional! While the scale of this fan is better in here, it'd be nice to have more consistent light through the whole room rather than in 3 small pockets of light.
