Furnishing and decorating a room for a young child is a lot different than how you'd go about doing the same for an adult-only space. Not only do you have to take taste preferences into account, but you have to really think about the functionality, practicality and safety of every aspect. It's enough to give parents a headache, but luckily it's easy to choose blinds and shades that are appropriate.
First and foremost, it should be noted that kids are curious creatures. They're always busy getting themselves into mischief by exploring and evaluating every little thing they can get their hands on. That's why it's important to make sure that nothing dangerous is within reach. Window shades are no exception. Instead of opting for types that have long strings or pulls, go with cordless shades.
You'll also need to make sure that the shades are thick enough to block out the light during daytime naps. Your little one may have trouble falling asleep if the room's not dark enough, and sunrays through thin, wide slats may present a problem.
