If you’re a parent, the safety of your child is always foremost in your mind and will often be the key deciding factor when it comes to making choices for your home. This can range from large decisions like whether to live in a home with stairs, all the way to things like which window coverings are safest for your little ones.
Thankfully, the choice of the right window treatments is easier than ever, thanks to new options with child safety built right in.
Why Choose Child-Safe Window Treatments
For one thing, new regulations are in place to ensure that your children are completely safe from any potential hazards with window coverings. In 2018, the Window Covering Manufacturers Association and the American National Standards Institute announced that most window coverings sold in North American must either be cordless or have inaccessible or shortened cords. Now that these new regulations are in effect, 80 percent of window treatments sold in the United States and Canada fall under these parameters.
Child-safe window treatments are vital because as children grow and start exploring, their natural curiosity can sometimes lead them into precarious situations. By ensuring that you choose window coverings that fit into the new regulations, you can put your mind at ease that your children will be safe from any hazards that could come with getting tangled up in long cords.
