When it comes to safety, style, and ease-of-use, cordless blinds reign supreme. Add to this that they’re available in a wide range of colours, and you’ve got yourself a winner. Over the years, they’ve certainly won hearts by being the window furnishing of choice amongst many.
A common question that gets asked is whether corded or cordless blinds are better. For this, it’s entirely a matter of personal preference. In saying that however, cordless blinds are often preferred for homes with young children and pets for safety concerns. So if this is you, then cordless blinds can give you the peace of mind you’re looking for.
Aside from this, cordless blinds also make for a cleaner, clutter-free look. Blinds look seamless and operate as though by magic. They certainly help pull a space together, by (pun intended) tying up any loose ends. They also highlight the contours of your windows/ doors, instead of distracting from them.
If you’re weighing the two options against each other, go on and take a look here where we break it all down. We also currently offer roller blinds, double-roller blinds and Roman blinds as motorised options, which means cordless. You can also opt for a wand for control if you like.
1. Easy Shade Movement in an Upward and Downward Direction
Cordless blinds will operate in much the same way corded blinds do. The only difference between them is the operation. When you take away the cords, the blinds should function exactly alike. You’ll find that they move up and down quite easily, ensuring functionality isn’t disrupted. This gives you plenty of autonomy when it comes to use, just like corded blinds. For instance, cordless roller blinds give you maximum control over the amount of sunlight the same way corded ones do. If you choose to motorise them, you get to control this with the simple use of a remote. Our motorisation lets you hook up to 15 blinds on one remote. This is especially useful if you have many blinds to operate on a daily basis. Manually operating them can get tedious!
2. A Completely Innovative Option That Comes With an Uncluttered Design
In-keeping with the trend for modern, minimalistic design, cordless blinds are also well-suited to the needs of the 21st century. On top of being able to operate them with a remote, you can also connect them to your smartphone. This means that even when you’re not home, you can control your blinds to give the illusion that you are. This can make you feel more at ease when you’re away.
Add to this that you can also set them to operate according to your needs at different times of the day. So for example, you can programme them to raise at say, 7am, when you wake up each day. Then you can programme them to lower around 6 or 7pm, when the sun begins to set. In order to do this however, you’ll need the right apps on your smartphone. While we haven’t yet figured out how to clean roller blinds remotely, we think it’s just a matter of time!
3. Avoidance of Any Visible Window Covering Cords
Does your OCD kick into full gear every time you see those cords blowing in the wind? Rejoice, for you may have found a friend in cordless blinds. By completely eliminating the need for any unsightly cords, they always look in place and streamlined. No more rogue cords to ruin your day.
Too often with traditional blinds, you find yourself figuring out what to do with the strings once installation is done. Should you tie them up? Roll them around the bracket? Maybe scrunch them up behind the blinds themselves? None of these are exactly practical for everyday use, so you soon give it up. Cordless blinds will remove this issue completely, allowing your blinds to be the sole focus.
Visible cords are also all too tempting for curious little minds and of course your pets. It’s almost an invite for them to be tugged on. They’re irresistible, and if within reach, you can bet your bottom dollar they’ll be pulled on. Cordless blinds take away this temptation altogether, so you can breathe a sigh of relief.
To sum up, cordless blinds are every bit as good as corded when it comes to functionality. However, they go the extra mile in terms of aesthetics and design, by eliminating cords altogether. This simple yet potent detail has a lot to offer when it comes to the final result, allowing your blinds to shine through. More importantly, they’re ideal for homes with babies and fur babies, as they don’t pose any safety hazards. We know that parents everywhere are cheering at that one!
