The Serious Side To Beautiful Window Treatments

The window treatment industry is serious about its responsibility to provide customers with child-safe options. Many products help reduce window treatment accidents in the home, including cordless operating systems and safe lifting systems. Window coverings manufacturers are increasingly adding motorization options for both safety and convenience. Contact us for an in-home consultation where we can show you the latest innovations in products and lifting systems. We offer an in-home safety inspection, however here are some things you can consider to make your home safe for your children:


Prevention always begins with awareness. Be extra vigilant when children are around cords of any kind (including electrical wiring).

Position cribs, beds, playpens and other furniture on walls without windows and window cords.

Check your current window treatments for exposed or dangling cords.

Keep cords out of reach of children.

Eliminate any dangling cords with cordless window treatments.

Permanently anchor continuous cord loop window covering cords to the floor or wall.

Child safety is everyone’s business. Window Treatments by Design will be very pleased to discuss all of the child and pet safety options that are available for your home.
