Child-safe features like cordless operation combined with modern amenities like the latest color stains from Hunter Douglas create shades that look good, are easy to use, and are safe for households with small children or pets.

Cordless Window Treatments

The number one safety hazard for small children or pets from window treatments are the loose or hanging cords used for some styles of manual operation. Children can get entangled in the loose cords, which then creates the risk for strangulation. Family-friendly shutters do not use cords for operation, instead tilt bars or motorized systems create cord-free window treatments, which are more child-safe.

Family-friendly shutters need to be easy to clean and require minimum ongoing maintenance so they can keep up with even heavy use without requiring a lot of upkeep in return. Additionally, the best family-friendly shutters should also last and with enhanced materials that are protected against staining, UV, and moisture modern shutters are stronger and more durable for incredibly long-lasting treatments.
