Do you have blinds in your house? Did you know that they could be dangerous for kids? 

​In the infographic below Curtains-blinds.co.uk offers advice on how to keep your kids safe when you have blinds in your house using some simple child safety devices. A lot of old blinds do not come with the same safety features that have been built into newer blinds and these can really put kids in danger. Luckily we live in a new build and only have one blind that has these safety features built in but it is definitely worth double checking. 

Curtains-blinds.co.uk recommend checking all of your blinds to see if they have breakaway clips and also  ensuring that all free hanging cords and chains are held out of reach of children.  Check out the image below for more preventive actions to create a safe environment for your kids.
