1. Cordless Blinds and Shades Offer a Safer Window Treatment Option

We know a home is made of more than four walls. A home is a place of comfort, joy, peace, and security. Digital security tech like smart locks, alarms, and camera systems can help keep your home safe from the outside world, but what happens when safety concerns are already inside your walls?

Corded shades and blinds have posed a health threat that's been addressed by organizations such as the Window Covering Safety Council and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. According to CPSC, corded blinds and shades are one of the top five safety hazards in a home.

This safety hazard for children and pets is disconcerting. No one wants to constantly be on the lookout for your loved one being in danger — especially not in their home.

With cordless blinds and shades, your window treatments no longer carry a threat to your children and pets. Cordless blinds and shades directly address that safety threat by use of the built-in tension that allows corded blinds and shades to be raised and lowered without traditional cords.

2. Cordless Window Treatments Create Modern Lines and a Cleaner Look

A home should match your style — whatever style that might be. Corded blinds and shades can look cluttered and dated from the obvious cords and pulley systems attached to each covering. Avoid this unwelcome characteristic by opting for cordless blinds and shades that leave you with a streamlined look.

Roller shades, solar shades, roman shades, blinds, and even motorized window treatments are available with cordless systems.

Cordless blinds and shades are particularly effective for open floor plans, where window treatments are viewed from farther distances and you can see from one room into the other. Corded treatments would look cluttered in such a space, but cordless window treatments won't leave you feeling like the room is in need of a spruce up.

You'll get a modern, sleek look that’s sure to match with any decorative style already in your home. No more cords dangling behind the couch or fluttering in the breeze of an open window. Just simple, beautiful, and effortlessly functional window treatments.

3. Layer with Ease Using Custom Cordless Roman Shades, Solar Shades, or Roller Shades

You deserve a home that's both stylish and comfortable. By layering your window treatments, you create a look you love and give yourself maximum control over light, privacy, and climate.

Are you thinking about adding even more style and control to your home? If you're considering layering up your window treatments, you should examine options that won't create more challenges than they're worth.

Layering is much easier with cordless blinds and shades. There is nothing to get in the way of opening and closing your window treatment — all the parts of your maneuvering systems are manufactured within the blind or shade.

With custom cordless roman shades paired with drapery, you can achieve a sophisticated look that’s also convenient. With this combination, you’ll have more privacy and energy efficiency. Solar and roller shades are also great for layering underneath window treatments such as drapery, and opting for cordless will give you the cleanest and simplest design.

4. Life Just Got a Whole Lot Easier With Cordless Blinds and Shades

Your home appliances and furnishings should make your life easier, not harder. If easy-to-use window treatments are a priority for you, cordless shades and blinds will be right up your alley. You can simply pull or lift at your leisure, rather than rely on cords or pulley systems that have the unwelcome ability to break, get tangled, be ineffective, and be in the way.

With cordless blinds and shades, you’ll have no more untangling knotted cords and trying to keep your pulley system out of the way. Leaning around the counter to try and access that cord that’s just barely out of reach will no longer be a part of your daily struggle. Instead, you can easily adjust your new shades one-handed — to the perfect height, every time.

5. Add Motorization to Your Cordless Blinds and Shades for Top-Notch Convenience

The best thing about cordless blinds and shades? Some would say the ease in which they function. That’s a huge benefit, and now it gets even better with motorized cordless window treatments.

Remember the cord that was just out of reach which you abandoned for a cordless window treatment? Now you don't even have to cross the room — you’ve got motorized options available at the touch or click of a button. Got an open concept space with a row of gorgeous windows? Adjust each shade from the same spot! (And zero visible cords when you upgrade to motorized cordless shades and blinds.)
