Swaying draperies, dangling cords, hanging swags – many window treatments are an accident waiting to happen for pets and young children. Because of this, homeowners with little ones and furry friends need to consider potential hazards when having new window treatments installed. If you’re looking for child- and pet-safe window treatments that don’t lack style, turn to Galaxy Draperies.
We install gorgeous, custom window coverings that are as beautiful as they are safe, so you can enhance your home’s interior without having to worry about risks. Since our founding in 1976, families throughout the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley area have trusted us to install safe and secure window treatments in their homes, and we’re proud to be a trusted source for premium window treatment solutions.
As a parent, your child’s safety is your paramount concern. You’ve likely made the rest of your house child-safe, but have you considered the potential hazards of window treatments? Pull cords present a strong strangulation hazard for kids; in fact, the majority of injuries from window treatments in kids ages six and under in the U.S. were sustained from pull cords. Cords are named one of the “Top 5 Hidden Hazards in the Home” by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
It only takes a minute for little ones to accidentally ensnare themselves in the dangling cords on a home’s blinds or shades.
We’re proud that we can offer options certified as Best for Kids™ by an independent lab.
If you’re a cat owner, you probably own at least one dangling cat toy that your feline friend loves. But while playing with dangling toys can entertain your kitty for hours on end, it’s important to note that these toys are very similar to dangling cords on window treatments. Did you know that cats often mistake the dangling cords of shades and blinds for cat toys? If your cat gets ahold of these dangling cords, it can lead to entanglement and choking on the cord’s plastic pull.
When you leave the house, both cats and dogs love to nose their way through your blinds or push aside your shades in order to see outside, which runs the risk of strangulation, much like with small children. When in doubt, go cordless for everyone’s safety.
Cordless window coverings are a great option to eliminate dangerous cords. They also provide a sleek, clean look!
Cordless shades, shutters, blinds and more are simple to use. Just lift, or push a button to move, depending on style. It’s easy to place the shade exactly where you want it for perfect light control that’s even easy for children to operate independently.
We also offer cordless bottom up/top down cellular and pleated shades!
Whatever solution you’re looking for, we’re happy to help you go Cordless for Kids.
Our motorized window treatments are known for their effortless operation that homeowners love. With the button of a button on a remote or wall switch, you can raise or lower shades, or open and close draperies. Best yet, there’s no cords at all with motorized window coverings.
You can also use Amazon Alexa or Google Home to just ask outloud! We also have phone apps where you can program schedules so you can wake up to sunlight, or close shades automatically as you wind down for the evening. If you have an existing SmartHome system or prefer IFTTT tech, you can sync them up to your motorized window treatments!
Like with a TV remote, once you experience the convenience of motorized window coverings, there’s no going back.

"From scheduling our appointment to meeting with our designer, Bernadette, and the installer, Alfredo, we were met with professionalism and comforted in knowing we were dealing with people who knew what they were doing. Arrival times were well within the two-hour window. Bernadette shared her knowledge and expertise to help us choose the window treatments that best fit our needs and budget. We are so pleased with the final result and look forward to covering the rest of the window in our home."
"My wife and I recently moved and were in the market for new shades for our bathroom , living room and kitchen . We didn't really have a set vision so it was unbelievable when our designer Karen went through all the possibilities and showed us what would work well with the setup . Karen was not only very professional , she was personable and super knowledgeable about the products. I wish I could have her design the rest of our house ! Great product , great designer, great experience!"
"I would like to say that Galaxy Draperies was the best choice we've made. We recently purchased a new home and wanted to thank Bernadette for the amazing service she provided. I was referred to her by my sister, which also happened to purchase through you guys. Not only did Bernadette make me feel comfortable but it felt like I was working with family."
"Ordered Roman Shades for five windows. Designer who came to our home was nice and professional, Roman Shades arrived on time, the installation was handled by their installer who called and asked if he could come by earlier than our appointment, which was great. He was friendly, professional and did a great job! Highly recommend this company."
"I had a great experience with Galaxy. The designer presented me with several options and was very helpful in designing my window treatments. The installers were very professional, courteous, and careful! I will definitely use them in the future!"
"Galaxy Draperies was very professional, timely and responsive to the issue we had with one of the new shades. From their design team to the installation, everyone was very nice, informative and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing new window coverings."
"Great experience end to end with Galaxy. From the initial consult to the end product, communication was clear and everyone I interacted with was lovely. Highly recommended this company!"
"I just used Galaxy Draperies. I had a very heavy window covering which was mostly impossible to use. We looked at options and Galaxy Draperies suggested we use a motorized window covering. The material is beautiful and it's made so well. You can't see through from outside in yet you can see outside from inside the house. It works so quietly and solved all my problems. The wonderful lady who came to our house was great and always returned calls and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend them."
