Peace of Mind with Child-Safe Window Coverings

“When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.” -Walt Disney

Children are naturally curious. Their love of exploring, discovering, and imagining is unmatched and encouraged…as it should be! As a parent, however, you know that your child’s curiosity can sometimes fill your mind with worry. Where did he go? What is she getting into now? What interesting thing did he find to do this time? You want your children to be inquisitive, but you also want them to be safe. Installing child-safe window coverings will take one thing off of your worry list. This month, we want to help you do that. We’re offering ideas for window coverings that will give you peace of mind and make your home a safer place for your children to live in and explore.


LiteRise: Go Cordless

Instead of trying to hide, tie, or attach cords somewhere out of the way and losing the function of your shades, just eliminate them altogether. LiteRise is a cordless operating system that lets you use your hand to push or pull your shades to the position you want, and they’ll stay right where you put them. So simple, and so safe. Plus, when your children are curious about what’s happening in the great outdoors or want to find out if their glow-in-the-dark stickers really work, they can easily operate them. LiteRise is an excellent option for child-safe window coverings in your home. 


Shutters: Cordless by Design

Whatever adventure your child dreams up will certainly be fun, but if it involves one of your window treatment cords, it could be dangerous too. Shutters are a naturally cordless option. They also have a number of other safety features like a heavy magnet that makes it harder for your little ones to open them and a design that prevents them from closing inward. Shutters are beautiful child-safe window coverings, and they are also durable–which is a great feature when kids are involved.
