Cordless Blinds: What Are They, How to Install, and How to Operate

Cordless blinds may seem like a convenient and aesthetically pleasing way to don your windows. Here is a quick guide on how to get started with them.

 Cordless Blinds

Almost 300 children died from being strangled by window chords between 1990 and 2015. This is why it’s no surprise that many homeowners are opting for cordless blinds to be installed in their home.

Not only are cordless blinds safer, but they often look better too. Let’s dig deeper into finding the perfect cordless blinds for your home.

What Are Cordless Blinds?

Cordless blinds are an effective and easy option for controlling the light and privacy within your home. What sets cordless blinds apart from other types of blinds or shutters are their simple and “string free” design that creates a cleaner look.

In addition to less mess, cordless blinds are often purchased as a safer alternative to traditional blinds and are always a better alternative for homes with small children or pets.

The Benefits of Going Cordless

There are a number of benefits associated with cordless blinds and shade. Some of these benefits include:

  • A much safer alternative to traditional blinds that can result in strangulation for children and pets
  • Easier functioning
  • Better control of the amount of light let in
  • Less damage done to the actual shades by having one side stuck or shades lifting too fast
  • Less mess

What to Consider When Shopping for Cordless Blinds

While it may be tempting to head straight to the showroom floor to buy your new cordless shades, there are some important factors to keep in mind. You’ll want to consider the size of the window and take measurements to bring with you. You’ll also want to know the color and material that bests suits your home.

By considering and planning out these details ahead of time, you’ll have a much more successful shopping experience.

How Do Cordless Blinds Work

Cordless blinds ditch the long, easily tangled shades and opt for an easier approach. There are various types of cordless blinds, but typically the blinds can be elevated by lifting them from the bottom. Most blinds are lightweight so this process requires little effort.

Other blind options use a plastic rod or a short chain to adjust the amount of light let in by the shades.

How to Install Cordless Blinds

With Pinterest and Youtube, it can be tempting to make your new blinds installation a “Do It Yourself” job. However, to prevent any damage from occurring and to ensure your blinds are safely installed, it’s recommended to leave this part to the professionals.

Often, the same company you buy the blind from will offer professional installation services, so we recommend utilizing this service.

Types of Cordless Blinds

There are various styles of cordless blinds that typically differ in size, shape, and material. Popular styles include pleated shades, cellular shades, and roman shades.

Many homeowners also lean toward materials such as wood, faux wood, and plastic. Each style and material comes with its own set of benefits and disadvantages, so we suggest doing your research or speaking to a professional before making your final decision.

Choosing the Right Blinds Company

Where you buy your cordless blinds is just as important as the type of blinds you choose. You want a business that offers quality customer service, professional installation, and is able to answer any questions you may have.
