Child-Safe Window Treatments: What They Are & Why You Need Them
Updated: Dec 16, 2018
Your home is a haven for adults and children alike, which is why ensuring your window treatments are easy to use and child-safe is of paramount importance. As design and window treatment professionals, we offer a vast array of window covering style, fabric, and hardware options that are both beautiful and safe for all members of your family.
How to Choose a Safe Window Covering
What does "child-safe" actually mean? As shown in the video above, a child-safe window treatment--be it blinds, drapery, or shades--is one that doesn't have any loose cords, ribbons, or rods. Children tend to play with anything they can reach, especially the things that aren't actually toys. This means you must child-proof your home in every way possible. Nothing is worth that risk.
Should you use child-safe treatments even if you aren't a parent?
While you might not be a parent, if you have children visiting your home at some point or plan to sell in the future, toting child-safe window treatments will bring you and any future owners peace of mind. Besides, any reason to upgrade your interior is a good reason, right? ;)
