By Budget BlindsHomeowners love their pets and consider them part of the family, yet creating a space for their furry four-legged family members has often been an after-thought in home design. The following are five tips to help you create the perfect safe pet-friendly space in your home.
Child Safe Window Treatments
Window Covering Safety
Making window treatments safer for homes with children is a top priority. Budget Blinds has aligned itself with the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) for over 15 years and continues to adhere to their criteria and safety standards by offering many options for child-friendly window treatments, including cordless blinds and shades with a retractable lift, motorized shades with cordless operation, and shutters, which are inherently cordless.
Know When to Replace
The WCMA recommends replacing all window coverings made before 2001 with today’s safer products, and using cordless window coverings in children’s bedrooms and play areas. If replacement isn't an option, we can also properly install you FREE Child Safe Retrofit Kits, from the Window Covering Safety Council, that modify blind or shade cords to reduce the risk of strangulation.
