The dangling cords from your window treatment may not seem like much, but they can pose a serious danger to small children and pets in your home. For the safest, and sleekest, look, consider cutting the cord and choosing an alternative lift system.
For the most part, cordless blinds and shades operate just liked their corded counterparts – simply grab the bottom rail and physically lift or lower the shades where you would like them. A special cordless shade with the new Lift and Lock technology has a small button that can be held down to move the shade and released to lock it into position. Another brand new cordless shade is the roman shade outfitted with concealed magnets in each pleat that roll up seamlessly and neatly to allow for an effortless cord control.
With a cordless window covering, you’ll get a cleaner, more elegant look, simpler operation, and the peace-of-mind of child-safe windows. Most cordless coverings can also be motorized as an added convenience. Always be mindful of the importance of selecting cordless window treatments.
