The  Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) encourages parents and caregivers to replace their window coverings that may have exposed or dangling cords, which can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children, with blinds and shades that are cordless or have inaccessible cords.

Plantation Shutters

Basically, I prefer and am most drawn to simple, simple window coverings. If you have a substantial budget, I always recommend plantation shutters. They’re made of beautiful materials. They add an architectural element to any room. And because they’re mounted inside the window, they show off both the window itself and the moulding that surrounds it. Plantation shutters look good in pretty much any decor. Plus, there are no strings or weird hardware to present potential choking hazards — very baby friendly. Source: DesignMom
