“Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” –Elizabeth Stone
Parents worry. It’s what we do best. And no matter the age of your children, the worries may change, but they are always present. The last place you’d expect your child to be unsafe is inside your own home. This month, we want to bring to light an issue that often gets overlooked with sometimes frustrating–and even scary–consequences. Children are curious–they make their own fun. Sometimes those adventures can be harmful. Child-safe window coverings are a must when you have children in your home. This October, we want to help make your home a safe place for your family with free cordless upgrades. Check out some of the options we have for you…
Intuitive Technology + Automated Shades = Safety (& tons of convenience!)
You’ll do anything to keep your kids safe, including trying to keep cords and strings out of harm’s way. It’s not safe to tie cords up and out of reach, and the function of your window shades is lost. You just want some peace of mind, right? Motorized window shades will be the answer to all your troubles. Without cords or strings, you will achieve incredible safety for your children–and the convenience of PowerView motorization is unsurpassed. No more running back into your home to lower the window shades after an already hectic morning. No more living in a cave all day because you didn’t have even one extra minute to adjust your window shades open that day. Everything can happen with the touch of a button, either on your PowerView Pebble remote or your favorite device. Child-safe window coverings combined with loads of convenient features–it’s just what you need.
LiteRise Lift System
Effortless Operation + Cordless = Safety (for children, pets & your investment!)
Your window coverings have amazing benefits of light control, energy efficiency and privacy. But as a child, the windows need to be clear–to watch, learn and enjoy the outside world. Much of the time, when your child is at the window, they just want the window blinds to be out of the way. So they mess with them–not always harmful to your child, but almost always harmful to the window blinds themselves. And the rest of your home is the scene of your child’s most exciting adventures–the cords of window coverings may end up as part of the story: a rope to climb, a lasso to throw, a pulley for a toy truck. Child-safe window coverings feature lift systems–like the LiteRise operating system from Hunter Douglas–that take the cords out of the equation. LiteRise is easy to function–one simple push or pull and the window shades stay right where you put them. That means your little ones stay safe, and because they are so easy to use, your window shades stay safe, too.
What if cordless isn’t an option?!?!
Floor-to-ceiling windows + Furniture Obstacles = Don’t Panic.
There are circumstances when cordless may not be the best decision for your family. We know that there are situations where the lift system is chosen based on your needs and the unique design of your home. That’s why we want you to know you have options for child-safe window coverings even when a cord is involved. Safety is a top priority at Hunter Douglas, so they have gone above and beyond to ensure safe features for other lift systems. The short, retractable cord of UltraGlide will allow you simple function, but keep the cord out of harm’s way. The continuous cord loop that is such a popular operating system is easily tightened and fastened inside the window frame–secure and subtle. Safety is what matters, and you have options, no matter your circumstance.
Safety in your home is a huge concern, and you deserve peace of mind, knowing your family is protected. At Metropolitan Window Fashions, we care about you and your loved ones. We want to help guide you to child-safe window coverings that will keep your home free of danger. During the month of October, take advantage of free cordless upgrades, and let out a sigh of relief.
