How To Choose The Best Window Shades For Nursery

When it comes to the best window shades for the nursery or the best window shades for the children’s room/rooms, you have to pick the one that will give you the best option in terms of privacy, protection, and convenience. 

With children, you can’t just carelessly pick household items that have liabilities on them. For example, you have to pick a table with rounded edges or get something to cover sharp edges on the table. When it comes to chairs, you have to pick a children’s chair so that it meets their eye level. But what about window shades? Obviously no one really thinks about window shades, but these are important as well. Window shades in the nursery provide privacy and protection from UV rays for the child.

So, how should I pick the right window shades? Is there such a thing?

Child Safety Window Shades and Blinds

Before even considering the aesthetics of the window shade, the most important thing is the child safety of the window shades. Are they safe for my child? But what does that even mean?

Well, children are more likely to play with anything that they want and see.

For example, have you ever given your child or someone else’s child a toy? But then a couple minutes later that toy is already in the corner and the child is playing with a piece of wood? This is how the child’s mind works, and even if we don’t understand, we have to keep it in mind. Children will play with whatever they get their hands on, and in some cases, that can end up being deadly. Window shade cords are one of these things that can cause serious harm to the child. If they get caught in the cords, they can get strangled by the cords and although death is unlikely, it is possible. 

Convenient Window Shades For Nursery

Convenience is one of the most important things in a nursery. Rather than adding more steps, take away some steps or make it more convenient. Although the children should never really have access to the shades, especially at that age, if something DOES happen that they touch the shades, it is better to have less moving parts that are accessible to the child. This will make it much more convenient for you to obviously fix the shades.

Motorized Window Shades For The Nursery
