Three Major Reasons Cordless Blinds And Shades Are Improving Bedrooms

There’s no room that says “personal space” quite like a bedroom. It’s that spot in the house that evokes feelings of comfort, a place to kick back and relax, and an area of placid retreat from the cares of the day. When designing a bedroom, matters of privacy inevitably come into play. And no matter what your square footage, certain furnishings are essential—such as a bed, dressers, and perhaps one or two night stands. But when it comes to window treatments, it can be difficult to figure out which option is best.

Cordless blinds and shades are a smart option: they’re not just in sync with design trends, but a solution to many practical concerns. Here are three major ways this modern window covering can cover all of the bases for your clients.

Versatile on Style

The variety of cordless options—wood, faux wood, composite wood, roller shades, cellular shades, and transitional shades—means you can find something beautiful for every taste and budget.

  • With cordless blinds and shades, there are no dangling cords, loops, or tension devices attached to the wall. As a result, the bedroom looks sleeker and less cluttered.
  • If a bedroom has many windows, or windows of different sizes, cordless blinds can create an aesthetically pleasing sense of uniformity.
  • Once raised, cordless blinds and shades become almost invisible, allowing an unobstructed visual access to the outdoors. So they’re ideal if you want to showcase a beautiful view.

Easily Automated

Here’s where cordless blinds and shades are really standout performers. The introduction of motorization—allowing blinds to be raised or lowered with a phone, tablet, remote, wall switch or other home automation device—has been a real game changer.

  • If a bedroom window is very high, motorization makes it easy to open and close the blinds without the need for a step stool or extension pole.
  • Likewise, a shade that extends behind a bed or other large furnishing can easily be operated. In fact, motorized blinds make any hard-to-reach place instantly accessible.
  • When privacy is needed, blinds and shades can be instantly closed or otherwise adjusted, from up to 150 feet away.
  • Cordless products eliminate that old-time problem of having to haplessly jerk a cord back and forth to adjust your blinds!

Safe and Sound

Cordless blinds and shades have an impressive safety record. Window treatments with accessible cords pose a strangulation hazard to young children and pets, who might get caught up in dangling cords. But cordless products have been a demonstrably safer option. The advocacy group Parents For Window Blinds Safety report found some dramatic findings:

Cordless window treatments manage to fit style, safety and high-tech convenience all into one great product, to make your bedroom a more welcome respite than ever.
