During the search for the perfect window treatments, child safety should be one of the primary concerns when considering a purchase. Fortunately, many manufacturers now offer cordless designs that work with many of their products so consumers won't have to choose between safety and style.

Cords that accompany window treatments could be a danger to babies, small children and even pets. Your loved one could become tangled in the cord, which could cause serious injury or death. Since this is a preventable danger, parents should consider cordless window treatments in their homes if they have small children. Fortunately, if you have window treatments that were installed before 2001, the Window Covering Safety Council now offers a free kit to convert your window treatments to cordless for additional safety.

If you're in the market for cordless shades, fear not. The industry has caught up significantly with the desire for safety and many companies now offer cordless variations of their top designs.

When shopping for shades or blinds, consider ComforTrack Cell Shades. This product features a convenient sidetrack system for proper insulation and even qualifies for a federal tax credit for energy-efficiency.
