Blinds are an exceptional way to bring flair to a room and offer lots of lighting flexibility, but they can often be a hassle to manipulate and manage. At Nu-View we’ve recently seen an increase in the popularity of cordless shades and blinds, no doubt due to their many benefits over traditional blinds. Below are some of the benefits that matter most to our customers, and may be important for you!
Many customers enjoy the clean look of cordless blinds over typical corded ones. The loss of the hanging cord on one side of every window allows for a much cleaner silhouette, and it really helps preserve the uninterrupted view of larger windows. Plus, many of the newer cordless options have very sleek modern designs, which are becoming increasingly popular. If you value style above all else, cordless options are practically a must.
You might be wondering, if there isn’t a cord then how do you actually manipulate the shades? There are a variety of different mechanisms that have sprung up to replace the tired cord system. Some shades use spring tension, similarly to pull down projector screens. Others rely on locking bolts in the bottom bar of the shade, raise or lower it to the height you desire and then push in a small button to lock the shades in place. Whatever cordless blind you decide on, you can bet it will be easy to use and you won’t have to worry about any cord tangling.
This is the biggest factor for many customers, especially those with pets and young children. Cords have been a safety hazard of blinds since their invention, snaring curious hands and heads and resulting in injury and occasionally death. For parents concerned about the safety of their children, cordless options are a great way to completely bypass any danger.
