I’ve got no strings

QMOTION Unknown-1

While you’re busy making staircases safe with baby gates, and framing furniture with corner guards, spare a thought for a very real threat: roller blinds. Toddlers can easily become tangled up in their pull cords, warns blind manufacturer QMotion, which has released an alternative, battery-operated range. Each vibrant design is wireless, so can be installed without an electrician. Prices start at £553 plus fabric for a blind 1000mm wide with a 1500mm drop.
