Prioritizing Safety with Best Blinds & Awnings

As parents, ensuring the safety of our children is always a top priority. From childproofing cabinets to securing furniture, we take every precaution to safeguard our little ones from danger while they explore and grow. However, one area that often goes overlooked is window coverings. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, window blinds and shades are among the top five hidden hazards in American homes. With this in mind, it’s crucial to choose window treatments that are not only stylish but also kid-safe. At Best Blinds & Awnings, we understand the importance of prioritizing safety without compromising on style or functionality.

Cords No More

There are several factors to consider when designing safe window coverings. First and foremost is cordless operation. Traditional blinds and shades with cords pose a significant risk of strangulation for young children and pets. That’s why we offer a wide range of cordless options, including motorized blinds and shades, to eliminate this hazard entirely. Simple button controls allow you to raise or lower your window treatments without worrying about dangling cords.

Another essential feature to look for in kid-safe window coverings is cordless lift systems. These innovative mechanisms allow you to adjust the height of your blinds or shades using a gentle push or pull motion, eliminating the need for cords altogether. At Best Blinds & Awnings, we offer a variety of cordless lift systems, including top-down/bottom-up and continuous loop options, to suit your specific needs and preferences.

Non-Toxic Materials

In addition to cordless operation, it’s essential to consider the material and design of your window coverings. Opt for blinds and shades made from durable, child-friendly materials such as wood, faux wood, or fabric. These materials are stylish, easily cleaned, and free of toxins and chemicals that could affect your child’s health. Our collection of child-safe window treatments comes in a variety of colors, styles, and textures to complement any aesthetic while providing peace of mind for parents.

Safe Placement

When installing window coverings in rooms where children spend a lot of time, such as bedrooms and playrooms, it’s crucial to take extra precautions to ensure their safety. Avoid placing furniture near windows that could provide climbing opportunities for curious kids. Instead, opt for window treatments that can be securely mounted inside the window frame or high above the reach of children. At Best Blinds & Awnings, our team of consultants will work with you to find the perfect solution for your home, paying attention to both safety and style.

Knowing is Half the Battle

In addition to choosing the right window coverings, it is essential to educate yourself and your family about the potential dangers of cords and other hazards associated with blinds and shades. Teach your children never to play with window cords or attempt to climb on or swing from window treatments. If you can’t eliminate cords altogether, consider installing cord cleats or tension devices to keep cords safely out of reach when not in use.At Best Blinds & Awnings, we have made a commitment to providing quality blinds and shades that prioritize safety above all else.
