Welcome Fall Months Using Simple And Fashionable Decor Tips That Are Child Friendly
As families prepare and adjust to kids going back to school, play dates, autumn events and many more, it can be a sprint going from one activity to another. With all of that goes on, it is essential to still keep safety top of mind.
By having all of the educational parenting resources available nowadays, most safety-savvy parents know the ins and outs of keeping children away from power outlets, kitchen cabinets, and heavy furniture. On the other hand, there are other probable child safety hazards inside the home that at times can be overlooked including windows coverings.
Corded window coverings can cause a strangulation hazard to infants and young children. Not all window treatments are right for houses where small children may be present, and families may need to replace existing coverings. The good thing is, there is now a simple way for parents as well as caregivers to tell which products are right for their houses.
“Parents with young children ought to replace their corded window coverings with the cordless products available,” says Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) Executive Director, Peter Rush. “The new Best for Kids certification label recently launched makes it easy for mother and father and also caregivers to simply determine which products are suitable for their home.”
The Best for Kids certification program is developed to help customers and retailers easily determine window covering products that are ideal for use in homes with small children. In order to be entitled to this certification, manufacturers must meet the specified program criteria and submit their window covering products to a selected third party testing lab. The moment products pass testing they may be labeled Best for Kids.
There are lots of cordless products available in different styles, color and sizes to match the distinctive design of any room. Warm hues such as deep reds, greens and blues, are best for fall and can instantly make any room come alive. Replacing out your summer blinds for heavier ones that are warm and cozy for winter months and are Best for Kids not only helps keep in the heat, but guarantees your kid’s safety. Adding colorful floor-to-ceiling drapes or the addition of sheers can really give a dramatic element pop, almost as if you simply added a new coat of paint to the room.
