Choose Childproof Blinds for Safety and Style


 
Consumer,Home Improvement,Interior Design
If you want blinds, childproof blinds are a necessity in any home with young children. For many years, window blinds were constructed with a series of cords that could potentially be a strangulation hazard for babies and children who could get ahold of them. According to parentsforwindowblindsafety.org, more than 1,500 children have died or been injured because of unsafe window blinds since 1996.

If you’re going to put blinds in your home and you have small children, you must take steps to prevent accidents. Merely not locating the blinds in the children’s bedrooms is not enough. Blinds anywhere in the house can pose a danger, and in the time it takes to finish cooking a meal or talking on the phone, an accident can happen.

Old Blinds

If you have moved into a home that already has corded blinds installed, it may be possible to retrofit them for safety. Among the methods of making them safer are tying up the cords out of a child’s reach or affixing them securely to the wall. Some children can still get around these stopgap measures, so keep this in mind when making your decision. Even blinds with single cords or no loops are not completely safe, since industry standards say any length of cord or rope 7.25 inches or longer can pose a strangulation hazard. Pets, too, can get caught in blinds. Cats in particular, who love to sit on windowsills and play with string, can end up caught in the resulting knots. All of these risks are inherent with roll-up shades as well. The only way to be sure your blinds don’t pose a hazard is to opt for the cordless variety. They are safe, attractive, easy to use and easy to clean. Many come with an option to raise and lower them by remote control. Lots of the same corded blinds you see in showrooms or catalogs are available in cordless varieties, so you aren’t limited to a narrow selection. Wood and faux-wood blinds are also available in cordless, and if you don’t see a cordless option for the kind of blinds you had in mind, inquire, because many times they can be ordered.

Tidy Appearance

Even if you don’t have children or pets, many people prefer the uncluttered look of cordless blinds. Their neat, clean appearance eliminates unsightly tangled cords and knots. For older people, those suffering from arthritis or any affliction that effects your grip, cordless blinds can be much easier to manipulate.

Another safe option that’s easy to operate is shutters. Shutters provide necessary protection from the sun and cold, all while adding a strong element of style to your décor. Be they standard, café style, solid or tiers, shutters can enhance your traditional or contemporary design by bringing form and function to your rooms.

The Blind Spot of the Wasatch Front in Utah has an extensive selection of cordless blinds, shades and shutters. They do free in-home visits so you can better assess how your choices will look in your home, and once you make your selections, they take care of the installation so you can be sure it is done right. Call them today and arrange for them to come out to your home and show you their selection of childproof blinds.
