Best Blinds for Moms: How Shades Can Support You With Your Little Ones

Shoutout to all the moms out there – and we mean, all the moms. Whether you’re a mom to children, pets, or even plants, thank you for taking care of them! Now it’s time for us to take care of you. Check out our recommended shades that can support you with the little ones and decrease your stress levels.

For Moms

A mom’s best friend is a blackout cellular shade. It’s energy efficient, insulates against the heat and cold, and reduces noise. The inside of the cells are lined with mylar, so it blocks up to 99 percent of incoming light. What better shade can you think of for a nursery?

Not only will blackout window treatments help your little ones sleep, but they’ll help you sleep better too! Install them in your bedroom for a good night’s sleep.

And don’t worry mom – if cellular shades aren’t your style, you can always see there’s an option to upgrade to a room darkening or blackout liner for your current window covering. The liner restricts light from going through the shades’ fabric.

Plus, all our products come with a Cordless Lift option, which is the safest choice for homes with young children and pets.

For Plant Moms

As a plant mom, you know all about the importance of light control. Too little or too much can harm your plant baby, which is why you need a window covering with automation.

Automation is an add-on when you upgrade to a Motorized Lift, so you can pair it with Alexa, Google, & Apple products. Set the time when you want the shades to rise and lower based on how much your plants need. If you can’t remember if you lowered the shades, you can check your smartphone and adjust them.

For Dog (or Cat) Moms

We love fur-babies as much as the next dog mom, but dogs and cats can be a handful. We’ve seen a fair share of blinds and curtains destroyed from pets peeking through blinds or zooming through the house. Unfortunately, no one has invented an indestructible, pet-proof window covering yet. So here’s what we suggest doing in the meantime.

First off, safety! If you didn’t read it earlier, we’ll say it again: window coverings with the Cordless Lift option is the safest choice for homes with pets and kids. There is little to no risk of them accidentally getting tangled in dangling cords.

Let’s say now that your window coverings did take a beating. Our 5-Year Unlimited Warranty covers any damage you can think of, including bored pets. Depending on the product, you could get a warranty replacement in 10 days.

There you have it!
