Budget Blinds is Committed to Keeping Children Safe at Home

Making window treatments safer for homes with children is a top priority. Budget Blinds has aligned itself with the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) for over 15 years and continues to adhere to their criteria and safety standards by offering many options for child-friendly window treatments, including cordless blinds and shades with a retractable lift, motorized shades with cordless operation, and shutters, which are inherently cordless.

The WCMA recommends replacing all window coverings made before 2001 with today’s safer products, and using cordless window coverings in children’s bedrooms and play areas. Contact Budget Blinds to schedule a free in-home consultation to discuss all child-safe window covering options. We can also properly install Child Safe Retrofit Kits that modify blind or shade cords to reduce the risk of strangulation.
