I am looking for window treatments for my 2-year-old's room. What will keep her environment healthy and block light?

I would like to use curtains but I read that blinds would be better. I may do a blind with a curtain, but what type of blinds and curtains should I use?

A simple blackout roller shade made from PVC-free fabric is a good solution.

You can look at the Phifer SheerWeave 7000 fabric. It carries a Greenguard certification for indoor air quality.
