By Budget BlindsChoosing window treatments for a child's bedroom, playroom or nursery is crucial when designing the room, but it can be challenging. While aesthetics, durability, maintenance and functionality are critical factors, safety should be the primary concern for window treatments in any child's room.
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.
