Are Plantation Shutters Child Friendly?


A child’s room should be their special place, where they play and sleep while feeling comfortable and safe. It’s important to keep younger children safe in their room, and some types of window treatment aren’t ideal for children’s rooms.

So, where do plantation shutters rate when it comes to being child friendly?

Shutters are safer than blinds and curtains

Curtains and blinds have a long cord that hangs that can pose a safety risk to younger children. Even if you have cordless curtains, kids can still pull on them, and get wrapped up in them, which can pose a hazard.

With plantation shutters, nothing hangs down. They cover the windows with no drawstring or cloth hanging down by the floor where a child can reach.

And when it comes to allergens, shutters don’t harbour dust mites. They’re easy to clean, making them great for families with little children.

Benefits of plantation shutters for children rooms

The two key benefits of plantation shutters for your child are noise reduction and privacy. The best shutters for privacy in a kid’s room are solid shutters as they block out light and increase privacy from prying eyes when shut.

Solid shutters can also help reduce any outside noises, which can help your children get a better night’s sleep. If you have noisy neighbours or live on a busy road, plantation shutters are the ideal window covering solution.
