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

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can survive a fun-loving, clawed cat. Cats climb and pull down curtains, gnaw on or crease, and rip window shades with their claws. What’s a cat owner to do?

If you think you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in Orlando, check out plantation shutters. Their durable construction and materials avoid damage from even the fiercest felines. Here are even more reasons why louvered shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in Orlando.


Your Cat Can’t Tear Hard Plantation Shutters

All cats love to claw and bite things. No matter how many scratching posts you give them, your cat will still attack things around your home. If that sounds like your furball, you’ll want cat-proof window treatments in your Orlando home. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are hard and durable. Your cat can’t bend or tear them. And if your especially rough cat leaves marks on a louver, just have that piece repaired rather than getting a completely new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know that they love to bat at things that hang down and sway, such as blinds and fabric window shades. Even better if they have a cord to bite and pull. Then there are floor-length curtains to climb and hide in. Regrettably, your cat’s fun can wreak havoc on flimsy window coverings.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments as its personal ropes course, use interior shutters. Nothing on them dangles or swings when batted at. They simply won’t entice cats how blinds and fabric window treatments do. Chances are, your cat will just look past them and return to his own toys. Their lovely simplicity makes shutters easy to use and work into your interior design too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Cat Watch Out The Window

Interior shutters may not sound entertaining for inquisitive, lively cats, but your kitty will enjoy looking outside through the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can observe the cars and wildlifed all day while you have partial privacy. If she enjoys sunbathing, adjust the louvers to direct sunlight toward the floor and keep it out of your face. Or you can open a single shutter panel to let your kitty perch on the window sill for an unfettered view.

Interior Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Living with a cat leads to lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be challenging to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your Orlando cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that only needs to be brushed off with a duster to remove most cat hair and dander. And both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t damage the finish if you use a damp sponge to wipe off tougher paw prints.
