Cordless Blinds & Shades

Cord-Free Blinds & Shades Offer Safety & Convenience

cordless window blindsHave 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 window blinds offer a sleek and modern alternative to traditional blinds, eliminating cords and wands for a simpler, cleaner look. These blinds are incredibly user-friendly – you can easily adjust the height by pushing or pulling on the bottom rail. Some models come with a convenient locking mechanism, where pressing a button while adjusting the height and then releasing it locks the blinds in place. This feature ensures stability and safety, making them a great option for homes with children and pets.

Gotcha Covered offers cordless blinds in a variety of styles, including:

How Do You Raise and Lower Cordless Shades?

Cordless window blinds not only make operation simple but also contribute to a safer and neater environment by removing the need for dangling cords. Their modern design and functional ease make them an ideal choice for enhancing the convenience and safety of your living or work spaces.

Why Are Cordless Blinds A Great Option For Your Home?

Cordless blinds are a great option for many homes due to the convenience and safety they offer. The blinds are easy to operate, as they do not require cords or strings to lift and lower the blinds. This makes them ideal for households with children or pets, as there is no risk of them getting tangled in the cords or strings.

Additionally, cordless blinds offer a sleek, modern look that can enhance the aesthetic of any room. They are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, so you can find the perfect option for your home.

Cordless blinds are also energy-efficient, as they can block out the sun's rays and help to keep your home cool during the summer months. Finally, cordless blinds can be a great option for those on a budget, as sometimes they can be less expensive than their corded counterparts.

Cordless vs. Continuous Loop

Though cordless window treatments offer a lot of benefits, they aren’t appropriate for every window. For instance, very wide windows would require more than one person to operate a cordless system, since the weight and balance would be too much for a traditional cordless design. Cordless systems may not be a good option for heavy blinds or shades, or in homes where someone may have trouble operating them. In cases like this, you may want to consider a continuous loop cord. A continuous loop is thread through pulleys anchored at the top—and often, the bottom—giving you the power of a lift cord with a neater, more streamlined appearance.

Pros & Cons of Cordless Window Treatments

If you’re considering going cordless, it’s important you weight the benefits and the drawbacks. While cordless window treatments are safer than their traditional corded counterparts, they are not always the right choice for every window, or even every home.

Cordless window treatments might be A GOOD FIT for you because of:

  • Aesthetics – They offer clean, sleek lines, uninterrupted by a messy tangle of cords.
  • Safety – Eliminating cords prevents children and pets from getting caught or pulling them down.
  • Convenience – Easy, one-handed operation means less hassle when opening and closing shades or blinds.
  • Selection – They are available in countless styles, colors, and textiles to match any décor or budget.

    However, you may want to AVOID cordless window treatments for:

    • Wide windows – For very wide windows, a continuous loop system is a more functional and often necessary choice.
    • High or tall windows – If the windows are out of reach, the cordless window treatments will be, too. Cordless shades and blinds are best for windows where you can reach the full length of the window without too much trouble.
    • Windows behind furniture – Similar to high windows, windows behind furniture can present an obstacle to cordless window treatment operation. In this case, though, accessing the bottom of the shades or blinds may be a hassle.
    • Certain types of mobility limitations – Though cordless window treatments may be easier to operate for many, certain types of mobility limitations may make the finer adjustments of cordless operation more difficult than using a lift cord.

    Are Cordless Window Treatments Safer for Kids & Pets?

    Traditional lift cords pose a significant danger to children and pets, who can become tangled in the strings and choke or strangle themselves. There are a number of ways you can keep kids and pets safe from the hazards of window cords, but opting for cordless blinds or shades is one. Eliminating dangling cords, which often draw the attention of curious cats, playful dogs, or adventurous children, removes the temptation and makes window treatments safer for your family.

    Are Cordless Blinds Worth It?

    While cordless blinds and shades generally cost a little more than traditional corded styles, cordless window treatments are often worth the investment. The added safety for households with children is virtually priceless, and the absence of dangling cords or strings makes for a sleek, streamlined look. Cordless options are available for shades and blinds that fit any budget, so there’s something for anyone considering the cord-free aesthetic.
