Many consumers begin the search for new window shades intending to come away with a good deal on a beautiful blind that will increase the value or curb appeal of their home. Other consumers enter the market intending to get a smart, long term investment with an efficient, energy saving window shade. But Jayson Ellingson of Blinds Chalet wants to remind those in the market for new blinds that when looking at products, safety should also be a priority.
"If you've got young children at home or frequent visitors with young children, check your current window coverings. You never want a looped pull cord and you want to see cord stops and tie down devices on all your window coverings. There are some great cordless shades on the market these days that are a great solution and you actually gain aesthetic appeal, there is no cord hanging down. Currently you can get cordless blinds in wood, cell, roller and roman shades." If you aren't sure how a cordless shade works, view a video clip of the Valencia Cordless Light Filtering Roman shade in action.
The Window Covering Safety Council advises that any window coverings made prior to 2001 be replaced or that owners follow instructions to retrofit the window coverings in order to lower the safety hazard for young children. Whether you have young children at home or potential visitors with young children, blind safety is something to be aware of.
