What Are The Best Cat-Proof Window Treatments In San Diego?

March 04, 2022

Few window coverings can endure a frisky, impish cat. Cats scale and pull down drapes, crease blinds or chew up, and tear window shades with their claws. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you feel you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in San Diego, consider plantation shutters. Their sturdy construction and materials resist damage by even the fiercest felines. Here are all the reasons why interior shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in San Diego.

 

Your Kitty Can’t Bring Down Solid Interior Shutters

Every cat loves to bite and claw things. Despite how many scratching posts you give them, your cat will still attack objects around your windows. If that description fits your fur baby, you should get some cat-proof window treatments in your San Diego house. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are hard and long-lasting. Your cat can’t bend or tear a shutter. And if your especially aggressive feline leaves marks on a shutter louver, you can have that piece repaired rather than purchasing a whole new window treatment.
 

Interior Shutters Won’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you own cats, you know how they adore batting at loose fabric, like blinds and fabric window shades. Even better if they have a pull string to bite and yank on. Then there are floor-length drapery to scale and hide in. Regrettably for you, your cat’s fun can wreak havoc on sub-par window treatments.

To keep your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal playground, use interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment dangles or sways when pounced on. They just don’t tempt cats how blinds and fabric window treatments do. Chances are, your cat will look past them and go back to its own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and work into your interior design too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Feline Look Out The Window

Louvered shutters might not sound fun for curious, lively cats, but your kitty will enjoy peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can observe the cars and wildlifed during the day while you have some privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to redirect light toward the ground and keep it away from your face. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let your kitty stretch out on the window sill for a full view.

Louvered Shutters Are Effortless To Clean

Owning a cat means lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be difficult to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your San Diego cat-friendly window treatments such as interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that just needs to be wiped down with a duster to get rid of animal hair and dander. And both high-quality faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about ruining the finish if you use a damp cloth to clean off tougher muddy paw prints.
