Please Note: A Roman shade or any shade with exposed lift cords should never be used in homes or rooms with infants or small children! ONLY use cordless type window coverings to guard against strangulation. A secondary liner can easily be added to conceal lift cords on the back to meet WCSC recommendations.

There are two options for households with young children:

  1. Hand tack a secondary lining material on the back side covering all strings and mount a cord cleat to wall or inside the window frame so it is out of reach.
  2. Use a cordless Honeycomb/Cellular shade. You can also add a Faux Roman Shade (non-working) to place in front of honeycomb so it is hidden.
