Cordless Window Treatments
Cord-Free Blinds & Shades Offer Safety & Convenience
Have you been considering going cordless? Traditionally, blinds and shades feature a lift cord to raise and lower them, but these dangling strings can often be a tangled, messy eyesore or—worse—a serious safety hazard. Cordless window treatments offer a way to simplify your window coverings, eliminating lift cords and allowing easy, one-handed raising and lowering. Read on to learn more about this popular and convenient option.
How Do Cordless Blinds Work?
Cordless blinds aren’t entirely cordless—they still have strings inside, connecting the slats and holding them in place. However, cordless blinds don’t use a cord to lift or lower, and often don’t have a wand to tilt the slats open or closed. Instead, you simply push up or pull down on the bottom rail to adjust the blinds to your desired position. Some styles have a locking mechanism on the bottom rail, which involves pressing a button while moving the blinds to the perfect height, then releasing the button to lock them in place. To open or close the slats without a wand, you tilt the bottom rail forward or backward. Operation is simple and can generally be done one-handed.

How Do You Raise & Lower Cordless Shades?
Depending on the style, cordless shades may operate using spring tension like a projector screen, rolling up or down with a gentle tug, or they may be raised and lowered simply by guiding the bottom rail, similar to cordless blinds. Cordless shades are often available in a top-down/bottom-up design, which means you can easily position both the top and the bottom of the shade. This is ideal for allowing full light at the top of the window while retaining privacy from the lower section, along with a number of other scenarios.
