I'm looking for some curtains for 3 yr old boy's bedroom. I'm looking for something that will not look too young as he gets older.

I'm looking for pencil pleat curtains with a blackout lining. Can anyone help?

John Lewis have some nice dinosaur fabric too. Or I've got some good stuff from here before

Thanks for the ideas. I really want ready-made curtains and the blue/red finaly stripe is only available as a made to measure or as a fabric. I have seen the dinosaur one and I feel it is a bit muted.

How much do you want to spend?

I love these and really want the Milky Way one's for my sons' bedroom. You can choose from Cotton, Thermal or Blackout lining too.

Don't know if I can justify the price though. sad

I like them. I really want to keep it under £100 though. Hmm, what to do?

These are maximum £85 and are blackout lined.

Blackout lined too but too young?

Avoid anything themed - he will outgrow it too quickly. My son had a kind of chambray blue for his room when he was 3 with different shades of pale blue on the walls. Walls are currently cream with one in a dark red and with a red / navy stars and stripes type bedding ( age 10) and currently moving into black accents as he is now seriosly grown up. Curtains still fine so it's just the accents that are changing...

I have a 3 yo DS too, and I've just chosen curtain fabric for his room. How big is his window - would it rule out made to measure? I have chosen a vertical stripe which has white, cream, lime green, red, light blue, mid blue and dark blue, and of different widths. It is lovely - it will last him for years and not date, and it has so many colours in it that I will be able to decoarte his room around it with dfferent duvet covers, paint colours etc as he gets older.

This is the fabric:
