From picking out a crib to finding the perfect paint color, designing a nursery is something every parent looks forward to. And while every nursery should be cozy, it’s important to put just as much thought into how the room will function.
Designing a Functional Nursery
Make Window Safety Your #1 Priority
When designing a nursery, safety should always be at the top of your mind. And while things like outlets and sharp corners are often the first to be covered, it can be easy to forget about window cords — something the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has gone on to call one of the top five hidden hazards in American homes.
You can help keep your little one safe from the hazard of corded blinds by:
- Moving furniture away from the blind cords, especially cribs and toys.
- Keeping the cords out of reach of small children.
- Eliminating dangling cords.
- Permanently anchoring continuous loop cords to the floor or wall.
The Benefits of Motorized Treatments
Ultimately, the best way to keep your little one safe from cords is to eliminate the threat altogether. And in addition to keeping your kids safe, motorized window treatments are also programmable, convenient, and more energy-efficient.
Invest in Room Darkening Treatments
When it comes to raising a baby, every parent knows how important sleep is. Room darkening shades filter out up to 99% of all light coming through a window — when the sun starts to set in the summer at 8 p.m., you’ll quickly realize how important good treatments are.
