Why You Should Put Safety Before Style When Choosing Window Treatments

For most people, style and design are always primary considerations when choosing shades, blinds, or other window treatments. While there’s no doubt that the right window treatment can enhance a home’s appearance both inside and out, in a home with children or pets, the safety of the product is a more important factor than style. The cords of blinds and shades pose a significant strangulation risk that was overlooked for many years. Thankfully, that’s no longer an oversight, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission calls corded window coverings one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes.

Nowadays, there is a major market for child-safe window treatments. Companies offer operating systems with child-safe features, from cordless operation to motorization. These cordless upgrades are not only safer, but, like any of the best window coverings, they can also provide light and privacy control for virtually any application.
