3 Child-Safe Window Treatments, Ewa, Hawaii

Bringing home your first child is both an exciting and stressful time. You want to keep your little one as safe as possible, so you’ll need to child-proof your home. Certain window coverings, such as blinds with low-hanging cords, can pose choking or strangulation hazards for young children. For your peace of mind and family safety, choose from the child-safe treatments below.

A Parent’s Guide to Child-Friendly Window Coverings

1. Cordless Blinds

If you love blinds, you don’t need to avoid them for your child’s safety. Cordless blinds remove the hazard of a hanging cord—you simply pull it up and down by hand. There are also options available with a loop cord, which must be secured high on the wall out of reach of children.

2. Motorized Shades

Motorized treatments are not only safe for kids, but also convenient for the busy parent. All of the components of the shades are inside the system, so nothing will harm your child. Plus, you can control the shades by remote or even set them to a schedule with an app.

3. Plantation Shutters

With this style of window coverings, you won’t need to sacrifice character and charm for safety. These effective and moisture-resistant shutters are also ideal for the humid Hawaii climate.
