It seems that for parents of young children, new safety concerns seem to pop up all the time. Even with extensive childproofing, many parents forget to consider their child’s safety around window coverings. Window treatments with long cords can pose a choking risk to young kids. Yes, that’s right; one more thing that could potentially harm your child.
So how can you have cute and functional window coverings in your child’s room without risking their safety? We have some great ideas from our Hunter Douglas shades and blinds collection.
One creative way to go cord free is to use shutters for your child’s windows, rather than blinds or shades. We love how bright white shutters look with pastels in a girl’s room, and wood tones look great with red or navy in a boy’s room.
If you prefer blinds, Hunter Douglas has several options that both stylish and cord-free. Pictured below are the Parkland Classic blinds, controlled by and ultra glide wand. You get all the style and function of blinds, without the long, dangerous cord. These blinds, like all of our Hunter Douglas products, come with a lifetime guarantee.
Another great style for a nursery is the Silhouette shade. It provides a sheer covering that still allows a lot of natural light. This shade, like many of our Hunter Douglas products, is available in cord-free and automatic options to make sure your little one is safe. You can read more about our cord-free options here.
If you have a baby that gets up with the sun, you may need something with heavier coverage. This Vignette tiered Roman Shade adds a stylish touch of color, and does a better job of blocking out the sun if you have a light sleeper. Many of our Hunter Douglas products are also available with blackout lining if your little one has a hard time staying asleep in daylight. These will allow you and your baby to get some much needed sleep!
If you’re expecting or have young children, we’d love to help you find the right window coverings for your nursery.
