New parents who are unsure of how to best decorate their child's room are in luck. According to, Ring's End Lumber is hosting a free seminar in Wilton, Connecticut, on June 8. Experts will share recommendations on how to dress children's living spaces, including child-safe paint and window blinds.

"Instead of using fancy bedding as the focal point for decorating a baby's room, parents should choose a different inspiration, such as a colorful rug or wall art," color consultant Rita T told the news source, adding that parents should use zero-volatile organic compound paint so that their children won't be exposed to harmful toxic fumes.

When choosing window dressings, Rita T reminded parents to consider both aesthetics and safety. "There are many wonderful decorating choices on the market today that are both beautiful and add special safety features to protect our children. [Look for] innovative window blind products that are either cordless or with a cord system that breaks apart under pressure."

Cordless cellular shades are great in children's rooms, but parents may also consider installing the window treatments throughout their entire home, to prevent possible accidents. The organization Parents for Window Blind Safety recommends window shutters as a chic alternative to cordless blinds.
