Do you love how little smiles, little hugs, and little giggles can bring such big joy? Children are precious, and their safety is too. If you have tiny tots in your life, it’s incredibly important to consider child safety when in comes to the blinds and shades in your home.
Safety is Priority One
Childproofing is more prevalent than ever these days. With social media sharing, there’s heightened awareness of the dangers that lurk around our homes. Many times, parents find themselves locking cabinets and installing gates even before their little one arrives. Outfitting windows with window coverings meant for child safety is another childproofing essential.
Why Do I Need Child Safe Blinds?
Cords dangling down from window coverings are dangerous. It only takes a second for a serious, or even fatal, injury to occur. There’s just no reason to take that risk. Even the most well-behaved kids can find their curiosity and imagination leading them into trouble. Little minds and hands turn cords into everything from lassos and leashes to necklaces and handcuffs. They’re just too tempting.
If you’re a grandparent, you might be thinking, “Well, they won’t be here everyday, and, when they do come over, I’ll be right with them.” It’s easy to think that short visits and supervision cancel out the dangers of cords. But, the truth is, accidents happen in seconds even when adults are watching. Having cordless and cord safe blinds and shades in your home is a simple and effective way to prioritize child safety. Plus, it gives you peace of mind and truly shows you care.
