Window blinds are a known risk to small children and may cause strangulation. Although all Designs By Spirit come with child safety cord tie downs, we do not recommend Designs By Spirit be installed in windows where small children may come in contact with the blinds.
Guidelines from the Window Covering Safety Council
The Window Covering Safety Council urges parents and caregivers to check all windows for potential cord hazards and make the necessary safety updates:
Install only cordless window coverings in bedrooms and sleeping areas for young children.
Replace window blinds, corded shades, and draperies manufactured before 2001 with products that meet updated safety standards.
If replacement is not possible, repair window blinds, corded shades, and draperies manufactured before 2001 with retrofit cord kits, available at windowcoverings.org or by calling 1-800-506-4636.
Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows and cords. Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords out of children’s reach. Make sure that tasseled pull cords are short and continuous-loop cords are permanently anchored to the floor or wall. Cord stops must be properly installed and adjusted to limit the movement of inner lift cords.
Lock cords into position whenever horizontal blinds or shades are lowered, including when they come to rest on a window sill.

Care and Maintenance
We recommend using a soft duster for periodic cleaning and a damp cloth for more thorough cleaning. To avoid damaging the surface, do not use abrasives or chemicals.

Although we strive to ensure color accuracy, slight color variations between what you see on your monitor and the final product you receive are unavoidable. Designs By Spirit translucent acrylic slats are designed to filter natural sunlight. Therefore, the colors will change depending upon both interior and exterior lighting conditions. Please keep in mind, monitors vary in color accuracy and represent color in RGB. Designs By Spirit are printed in CMYK. Therefore, we cannot accept reruns due to slight color variations.
