The Top Window Treatments For Kids And Pets in Orlando

Todd Hansen

When everyone is home for long batches of time, your house might begin to look smaller than normal. Main living spaces, like family rooms and bedrooms, can easily fill up with play things. Wall art  and window coverings  can get damaged during a spontaneous game of chase or hot lava innocent roughhousing a game of inside catch.  Finger smudges and nose prints can be seen on any surface, detailing exactly which spaces your kids and pets were in.

Like most things in your home it should come as no shock that you probably already know that you will need durable window treatments for kids and pets in Orlando. These treatments should be quick to clean and easy to use -- and able to hold up to an active family. That means ditching those easily broken window shades and blinds and installing something like a faux wood plantation shutter.

 

The Problem With Blinds And Curtains 

Blinds have a habit of breaking around pets and kid in Orlando. Most blinds use a series of thin slats that are held up on the sides by thin cords. This allows the window treatment to sway against the window. This makes the covering light and flexible. Blinds can adequately cover your windows, but they can break during a bit of horseplay. A swift bump or a dog face looking through it can rip a slat off the cord or snap it in half. Plus, any cords dangling can be a hazard for both kids and pets.
 
 
Curtains and drapes may not hold up any better with children and animals. Because they are suspended from one rod above the frame, they can ripped away with a good pull. Ones that hang to the floor are the perfect length for crawling babies or clawed cats to grab onto. Keeping them clean also poses an issue, as getting rid of paint-covered handprints or dusty paw markings anything past everyday wear-and-tear or pet fur and mud will have to wait until you can take a trip to the professional dry cleaners.
