When "child-proofing" the window treatments in your home consider some basic window shade decorating tips:
- The most commonly used window coverings in American homes are the horizontal and vertical blind, both have cordless options available.
- Cordless shades come in a variety of options including cordless lift shades which allow you to raise and lower your blinds without cords, and cordless top down bottom up shades which allow you to lower from the top of the shade as well as the bottom. Most of these options come in a cellular shade, often referred to as a honeycomb shade. However there are cordless roman and roller shades available as well.
- Don't forget the privacy or energy efficiency blinds can create, foregoing window coverings entirely out of safety concerns is not advised.
- In a child's room, do not place the bed/crib directly in front of the window. Avoiding this placement solves a majority of window covering safety issues for small children. Downplay the focus that naturally goes to the window with a second focal point like your baby's crib or child's bed.
- In addition to window coverings: take into account other obvious safety issues such as bedding with loose ties, cribs and/or beds that aren't sturdy and may have lose parts and always avoid placing any low furniture in front of a window to avoid any opportunity for accidental entanglement or falls that could injure your child.
