The Advantages of Cordless Blinds

As necessary as they are, blinds can be a bit of an eyesore—especially the plastic ones that are the default in new homes. Even worse, corded blinds can actually be quite dangerous and can be a safety hazard in many homes.

Luckily, cordless remote control blinds (like this set from SmartWings) are a fantastic alternative to traditional corded blinds. Not only do they look great in the home, they pose far less of a safety risk. Even better—you can open and close them with one touch of a finger!

Here are some of the biggest reasons we love cordless remote control blinds and motorized roller shades in the home:

  1. Remote control blinds are much safer than traditional corded blinds.

If you are a parent or an animal lover, you are already acutely aware of the dangers posed by even the most routine household items. No one likes to think about worst case scenarios, but unfortunately, we still need to plan for them. Corded blinds are extremely dangerous for children and pets. In fact, a 2017 study by the American Academy of Pediatrics found that 271 children had died as a result of window blinds since 1990—a number that may be even higher now.

On the other hand, cordless remote control blinds completely mitigate the danger of strangulation since they don’t feature any low-hanging cords, keeping your children and pets safe. Additionally, the motorized roller blinds offered by SmartWings are more durable than traditional venetian blinds, meaning that pets and kids can’t get trapped between broken pieces.

If you don’t want to risk the safety of your loved ones, it’s worth looking into installing remote control blinds.

  1. Cordless blinds are compatible with smart home systems.

Installing remote control blinds will mean the end of you having to get up and walk all the way across the room just to close the blinds—with a handy dandy remote, all it requires is a press of a button! It gets even better when using SmartWings motorized roller shades, though. These blinds are compatible with smart home systems, so you can control them with tools like Homekit, SmartThings, or Alexa.

Just imagine: if you hop out of the shower to realize you’ve left the blinds open, you don’t need to do a mad scramble around the house to find the remote. All you need to do is say, “Alexa, close the blinds!” and voila! The shades are closed and you don’t have to worry about accidentally exposing yourself to the neighborhood.

Our world is powered by technology, so your blinds should be, too!

  1. Cordless blinds are aesthetically pleasing.

Last, but not least, is the fact that cordless blinds are way more attractive than their corded counterparts. Remote control blinds come in a number of colors and styles—from modern, to boho, to just plain abstract—ensuring that you have shades that are safe, smart, and beautiful. As an added bonus, motorized roller shades offer a sleek, streamlined look that is free of errand cords that get tangled every time the wind blows.
