How To Choose Safe Window Treatments For Your Nursery

Creating a beautiful and safe haven for your little one is a top priority for every Sunshine Coast parent. While floor-length curtains might seem like a dreamy addition, safety always comes first! Climbing curtains poses a fall risk, and long cords can be a strangulation hazard for curious explorers. At Home point, we understand the importance of child-safe window treatments, and we’re here to guide you through creating a stylish and secure nursery.

1. Skip the Floor-Length Draperies (For Now!)

You made a wise decision! While climbing curtains might be an exciting adventure for your little one, it can lead to a trip to the emergency room. Opt for safer window treatments to give you peace of mind and fewer worries.

2. Beads are Best Left for Later

Sparkling, colourful beads are a choking hazard for inquisitive toddlers who see them as irresistible treats. Save the beaded valances or trims for later when your child understands not to put things in their mouth.

3. Professional Installation is Key

Unless you’re a seasoned DIY expert, leave window treatment installation to the professionals at Home point. Our experienced team ensures secure installations, eliminating the risk of loose hardware or blinds falling unexpectedly.

4. Embrace Child-Safe and Functional Blinds

Blinds are a fantastic choice for a nursery. They’re easy to clean, stay safely off the floor, and can be customised with fabrics to match your décor. Even better, consider wand-operated or motorised blinds that eliminate the danger of cords. For added safety, choose blockout blinds or cellular blinds to shield your nursery from the harsh Sunshine Coast sun, helping regulate temperature and minimise the risk of SIDS.

5. Positioning the Crib or Bed is Crucial

Remember, little ones are natural climbers. Even with safe blinds, the height of the crib or bed can provide a platform for climbing adventures. To minimise this risk, position the crib or bed away from the window. Once your child understands the boundaries and doesn’t attempt to climb, you can always move the bed closer to the window later.
