Got kids or pets? These new cordless blinds from Swish are as stylish as they are safe

You won't be left in a tangle with these child safe blinds

Picking new blinds with children and pets to consider is never an easy task. Dangling cords are a hazardous no-no, but you want something a little more inspiring than the selection of grey and beige that most cordless blinds come in.

Fortunately, the clever people at Swish have come to the rescue with their new range of cordless blinds. They've designed these easy-to-use blinds, without compromising on style. Available as roller blinds, insulating cellular blinds and aluminium venetian blinds, each style is available in a number of shades to add a pop of colour to any room.

How do Swish cordless blinds work?

Swish has done away with trailing cords that can clutter windowsills and pose all sorts of dangers to young children and pets. Instead, the blinds can be lifted, lowered or tilted by using the bottom bar. Each style is available in a range of sizes and can be easily installed and hung up by two people.
