SHUTTERS AREN'T JUST MORE STYLISH - 
THEY'RE ALSO SAFER THAN SHADES

Shutters are a perfect option for homes with parents or grandparents who are concerned about the safety of small children. Unlike window blinds and shades, shutters don't have cords. Children love to play on beds and climb on furniture near windows, and if there are blinds or shades with cords nearby, the play can suddenly turn tragic. Each year, a dozen infants, toddlers and preschoolers are accidentally strangled when cords get wrapped around their necks.
Let us assist you in selecting child-friendly shutters that not only look beautiful, but also provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing children are safe in your home. CLICK HERE to schedule your FREE in-home design consultation.

WINDOW COVERING SAFETY TIPS

  • Child-proof your window coverings by replacing products made before 2001 with today's safer shutters.
  • Never install window treatments that use cords in young children's bedrooms and sleeping areas.
  • Steer children clear of windows and window cords by moving cribs, beds, furniture and toys toward opposite walls.
  • When not in use, wrap window pull cords, inner left cords and back cords around securely mounted cleats, where children cannot reach them.
​Make sure:
  • Tasseled pull cords are always out of a child's reach, whether the window treatment is raised or lowered.
  • Lock cords into position whenever horizontal blinds or shades are lowered, including when they come to rest on a windowsill.
  • Cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit movement of inner lift cords.
  • Continuous cord loops are permanently anchored to the floor or wall.
  • Never mount products with back cords, such as Roman and Woven Wood Shades, in windows accessible to children.
