Do Your Own Safety Check.

Incorporating child safety within our interiors is easy; we love our children, we also want to enjoy our homes with peace of mind.

Stairs: block off staircases with gates top and bottom. It’s a good idea not to use your stairs as a storage point and keep them clear at all times (it also keeps your home looking good!).

Doors: keep your doors closed and locked if necessary to prevent your child from wandering outside unattended. For sliding glass doors you can now get a colourful variety of stickers. Stick them on at eye level (child’s eyes and your eyes). This is good for everyone – ever walked into a glass door before when you are preoccupied? Yes!

Windows: We’re all curious about the world around us – so lock your windows. If the window needs to be open for ventilation you can install a lock that limits the size of the opening

Buyers and users of window blinds should be aware of the hazards that can be posed by unrestrained cords and braids, loop chains and wires – all can be extremely hazardous to young children.

So please do your own safety check around the home and then have a cup of tea and enjoy your peace of mind.
