How To Childproof Your Home with Window CoveringsOctober 15, 2020
If you have little ones running around, you know how hard it can be to keep them safe. Everyday things are suddenly hazardous: the corners of your dining room table, outlets, stairs… we could go on and on. Much like you, protecting your kids is one of our main priorities. So, let’s take a look at your options for child safe window treatments.
A child’s imagination can be a great thing. But when it comes to cords, that imagination can lead to trouble. What most see as a tool for your window coverings can be seen as an exciting toy for kids. But, that fun can turn into danger in an instant. The best option? Consider going cordless.
A simple and gorgeous solution to cord-free window treatments is shutters. Simply open the louvers to let light in. No cords needed. And the best part is they’re durable, meaning even your kids can open and close then without fear of damage.
Another easy-to-use cordless option is LiteRise. With LiteRise all you have to do is gently pull down or push up to adjust your treatments. It’s truly that simple. No cords, no hassle.
The verdict is in, and our customers are loving this next cordless option. Motorized shades are one of our favorites to suggest when parents ask how to childproof. Not only can you rest easy knowing your kids are safe, but with PowerView® Automation you can create schedules, adjust your shades with a remote, or use smart devices, like Alexa or Google Home to adjust your shades.
Plus, with our motorized wand, you can’t go wrong! Instantly get individual window treatment control with the sleek SoftTouch wand. Simply adjust with a gentle pull up or down on the wand. And if your kids pull too hard, it detaches. Simply reattach it with the magnetic connection.
Child Safe Cords
We understand that it might seem a little contradictory to say that we have child safe cords after promoting the ease and safety of our cordless choices. But, we understand that every space is different, and some might require cords. So, let’s take a look at our child safe cords!
The first image shown is the continuous cord loop, which attaches to a cord tensioner inside the window frame. Your child won’t be able to find much fun in this as it doesn’t swing or dangle.
The second photo shows the UltraGlide option. With a retractable cord, once you finish pulling it to open or close your shade, it retracts back to its shortened length.
