The world is constantly changing and innovating. The window covering industry is no exception, and the advent of cordless blinds is a good example.
What are cordless blinds?
Cordless blinds are window coverings that do not include the usual dangling cords. The strings that operate these blinds are interlaced inside the blind slats to allow for smooth, stable movement.
How do you operate cordless blinds?
Cordless blinds are so simple to operate that you can do so with only one hand! Gently pull down on the bottom rail to lower them. The window covering will stop moving when you remove your hand. Raise the bottom rail to lift the blinds, and open or close the slats by tilting the rail forward or backward. Some styles use a wand to tilt the slats.
What are the benefits of cordless blinds?
- Safety: We install child locks on cabinets and drawers, put up safety gates and cover electrical outlets. We turn pot handles inward, put knives safely away, use car seats and make sure our crib is up to code. Another safety precaution you can take for your children is to swap out corded blinds for a cordless version. Without dangling cords, parents and pet owners can be free of worry of injury and/or strangulation.
- Beauty: Corded blinds often appear cluttered or get tangled. With cordless blinds, you’ll enjoy a cleaner, sleeker, minimalistic look. When raised they are almost invisible, allowing the view from your window to take center stage.
- Style: Choosing cordless blinds does not mean you must sacrifice style. There is a design, material and colour to fit every desire and budget. Choose from venetians, honeycomb, Roman shades, roller shades, pleated shades, mini blinds and cellular shades. Try wood, aluminum, bamboo, faux wood, fabric and vinyl. The colour options are endless.
- Convenience: No more fumbling with cords. No more snarled strings or stuck shades. With a simple flick of the wrist you can open, close, and tilt your blinds.
Cordless blinds have fluid motion, are durable, sleek and reliable. With so many cordless options, it’s simple to find blinds that are beautiful, stylish and safe for children and pets. Regardless of your window size, design preference or budget, there is a cordless blind to suit your home.
