Benefits of Cordless Window Treatments

If you’re in the market for new window coverings for your home, there are a lot of factors that will likely influence your selection. We encourage you to consider cordless window treatments.

What are cordless blinds or window treatments? The easy answer is that this designation applies to any window treatment that does not have a cord. But why does it even matter whether a window treatment has a cord? And how do these blinds work if they do not have cords to pull?

How they work

Cordless blinds still technically have cords on them, as the individual slats must be connected to each other and maneuvered so they work properly. The “cordless” moniker refers to a lack of a dangling cord you pull to move the blinds up or down.

Instead, you press a button on the bottom of the rail that releases the tension around the strings so you can set the blinds to the position you want them in. Once you let the button go, the tension returns and the blinds stay locked in that position.

Other types of cordless blinds don’t even require you to press a button—simply lift the bottom rail gently and maneuver to your desired position.

Why consider this window treatment option?

There are several primary benefits of cordless window treatments that you should consider when making your decision:

  • Safety: Cordless blinds are child-safe blinds, so it is highly appealing for families to purchase these blinds instead of standard cord-operated ones. Children and pets are susceptible to injury if they play with the cords that hang from blinds. Remove the cord from the picture with cordless window treatments so you don’t have to worry about the risk of injury.
  • Easy to use: Cordless blinds and shades are easier to use than standard options. You don’t have to worry about spending time untangling knots when they inevitably form in the cords, and you don’t have to worry about keeping the cords straight and remembering which way to pull them. The cordless design is much easier to use and eliminates a lot of frustration.
  • Aesthetics: Let’s face it—standard cord-operated blinds aren’t the most attractive option, especially when the cords get tangled or off kilter. Window treatments without cords have a more attractive, streamlined appearance that makes them look more modern. They’re also available in a wider range of colors and styles, giving you more options to customize your home’s interior design. 

Ultimately, if you care about safety, appearance and ease of use, you will find cordless window treatments to be a far better option than traditional blinds with a pull cord attached. Take some time to browse the market and see what’s available for you to purchase.
