The safety of your child comes first, and you don’t realize how many opportunities there are for an accident until you finally start child proofing your home. From the plastic locks on cabinet doors that prevent any fingers from getting squished, to the various outlets that you need to be wary of so that no fork or finger goes exploring their purpose, you are suddenly aware of a whole new world of dangers that are right inside the walls of your home. When childproofing a space, one of the last things that people really consider childproofing is their window treatments.
One of the reasons that window treatments are so dangerous for children is because they are so incredibly easy to pull down, especially for a child that is at a lower level where pulling on things is easy. Here are a few of the options that you have for window treatments and how it is that they’re putting your child’s safety first.
One of the reasons that window treatments are so dangerous for children is because they offer plenty of opportunities to be pulled on, and with blinds, the variety of strings that are hanging from the window and within reach of a child are far from few. If you have a child that is often curious about the purpose of things that are within reach or at eye level, then eliminating the strings of your blinds entirely is something that you may want to consider doing. One of the ways that Arjay’s provides this to you is through motorized blinds. This quick and easy installment makes it very easy to open and close windows throughout the house without ever having to leave the strings hanging on the floor. This is one of the best ways to keep your child safe with window treatments.
Window Length Curtains
Curtains are usually longer than the window that they’re covering, which is how they really improve efficiency and block out sunlight when wanted, but they don’t have to be so long. If your preferred form of window treatment is curtains, then you could consider having window length curtains installed so that your child isn’t likely to tug on them. We can help you measure out the curtains that will still provide you with the same coverage, without leaving as much opportunity for getting tugged on.
Outside Window Treatments
While this treatment is usually selected because of its ability to enhance the exterior of a home, it can also be used to benefit from high-quality window treatments while still keeping your children safe from any of the dangers that window treatments provide. These treatments are easy to install outside, and they continue to provide you with high-quality coverage in the interior of your home, but don’t leave any opportunity to be tugged and pulled on, so the chance of them falling is not something that you’re going to have to worry about.
