Blinds and shades play significant roles for homes and offices. They mainly provide protection from the glaring daylight; consequently, they can help insulate the room from the high outside temperature. Aside from that, they also provide utmost privacy for the room occupants. Beautification is another awesome benefit that shades and blinds can offer. Therefore, when choosing for the ideal window shades and window blinds for your office or home, you must also consider the design aspect of the product aside from price and quality.
Starting off by looking at window blinds as they have many more options and are therefore somewhat more complicated and of course lower down, potentially within reach. Some blinds are better than others. Any blind that has a control cord is a risk. When this is unavoidable consider the option of individual non-looped controls, cleats, a cord tidy or tension pulley. To eliminate or reduce the risk some good options to bare-in-mind are, spring operated roller blinds, pleated blinds operated by a friction system, using a wand control instead of a cord control for vertical blinds, perfect-fit roller blinds, remote-controlled blinds. Beware of vertical blinds as these are connected at the bottom with a chain, and venetian blinds particularly those with a larger slat where little heads could easily fit through. Most importantly is to be aware that a danger exists and to either remove the risk or to supervise all young children at all times.
Style: The first thing which you must think of is the style of your window blinds. There are many styles in blinds and some of the most common styles are vertical blinds, roller blinds, blackout roller blinds, motorised blinds and Venetian blinds. But before selecting the style you must think of the feel and look you want to create in your room. You must think of whether you want to have informal or formal look. These are the important things which you must think of before selecting the style.
Recently there has tragically been a number of deaths of young children attributed to strangulation by blind cords. Various high-profile organizations up to government level have come onboard to support a campaign called ’Make it Safe’ initiated by the BBSA, the British Blind and Shutter Association, of which Blind Technique are members. This campaign aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation with looped blind cords and controls through education, keeping these cords away from children at all times or if not possible by introducing various safety designs which mitigate the risk. It is highlighted that the only sure way to totally eliminate the risk is to keep all control cords out of reach, and to otherwise fit blinds without any non-control looped tapes, cords or designs.
