Of course, adding a little one to the home can be a slightly stressful process. And this is okay to admit! After all, you want your little one to come home to a safe environment.

Of course, there is also another element to consider when it comes to child safety in your home. That is your window treatments. If you have window treatments with dangling cords, these compose as a safety risk. Plus, corded window treatments tend to be fussy, and you can never really get the exact amount of shade of privacy you want without them tilting the wrong way or falling when he needed them to stay. That is why we have listed our favorite child-friendly window treatments below.

The best part? You can enjoy cordless window treatments long after your child has grown up. Read on to learn more.

Ditching the Cords

So, you’ve decided to ditch the cords. You might be wondering what comes next in terms of window treatments. We are excited to talk to you about the Top-Down/Bottom-Up operating feature available with a variety of our Hunter Douglas window treatments. This operating system works exactly how it sounds. Instead of using cords, you will push up or pull down on your window treatments and let go when you are satisfied with where they are on your window. This takes cords completely out of the equation, making these window treatments perfect for your little one’s bedroom. Plus, since you can achieve precise privacy, shade, and light filtration, you can rest easy knowing your little one will not be dealing with too much sun or too little privacy.
