What Are The Perfect Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Phoenix?

March 04, 2022

Few window treatments can survive a playful, mischievous cat. Cats climb and pull down curtains, bend blinds or chew up, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Phoenix, check out plantation shutters. Their hardwearing construction and materials resist damage from even the wildest kitties. Here are all the reasons why louvered shutters are the best window treatments for cats in Phoenix.

 

Your Cat Can’t Tear Hard Plantation Shutters

All cats love to claw and bite things. Despite the number of scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack things around your windows. If that sounds like your furball, you’ll should get some cat-proof window treatments in your Phoenix home. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are hard and durable. Your cat can’t bend or shred a louvered shutter. And if your especially rough feline does leave scratches on a louver, just have that piece repaired instead of getting a completely new window treatment.
 

Interior Shutters Won’t Sway, Dangle, Or Tangle

If you own cats, you know how they love to bat at things that hang down and sway, like fabric window shades and blinds. Even better if they have a cord to bite and yank on. Then there are long drapery to climb and hide in. Unfortunately for you, your kitty’s activities can ruin delicate window treatments.

To keep your cat from turning your window treatments into its personal playground, use interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment dangles or sways when swatted. They simply don’t entice cats how blinds and fabric window treatments do. Most likely, your cat will ignore them and go back to his own toys. Their lovely simplicity makes shutters easy to use and work into your decor too.

Louvered Shutters Let Your Feline Look Out The Window

Louvered shutters might not seem entertaining for inquisitive, lively cats, but your kitty will enjoy peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed during the day while you enjoy partial privacy. If she enjoys sunbathing, tilt the louvers to direct sunlight toward the ground and keep it away from your eyes. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let her stretch out on the window sill for a clear view.

Louvered Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Sharing a home with a cat means lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your Phoenix cat-friendly window treatments like interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that only needs to be wiped down with a duster to get rid of most animal hair and dander. And both high-quality faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t ruin the finish if you use a wet rag to clean off more stubborn muddy paw prints.
