What Are The Ideal Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Sacramento?

March 04, 2022

Few window treatments can endure a spirited, clawed cat. Cats climb and pull down curtains, gnaw on or bend, 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 Sacramento, consider plantation shutters. Their hardwearing materials and construction resist damage from even the most ferocious kitties. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in Sacramento.


Your Cat Can’t Tear Hard Plantation Shutters

All cats love to bite and claw things. No matter the number of scratching posts you offer them, they’ll still attack household things. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll need cat-proof window treatments in your Sacramento house. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t bend or tear a shutter. And if your particularly destructive feline leaves scratches on a shutter louver, you can have that piece repaired instead of getting a completely new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know how they love to bat at anything that hangs down and sways, such as blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when there’s a cord to bite and yank. Then there are long drapery to scale and hide in. Unfortunately, your kitty’s games can wreak havoc on flimsy window coverings.

To prevent your cat from making your window treatments into its personal ropes course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on them dangles or moves when pounced on. They just don’t entice cats how fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will just overlook them and go back to his own toys. Their lovely simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your interior design too.

Interior Shutters Let Cats See Outside

Louvered shutters might not sound entertaining for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will love peeking outside through the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed all day while you have some privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, adjust the louvers to direct light toward the ground and keep it out of your face. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let her sit on the window sill for a full view.

Louvered Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Sharing a home with a cat leads to lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be difficult to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Sacramento cat-friendly window treatments like interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that just needs to be brushed off with a duster to remove cat hair and dander. And both premium faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t damage the finish if you use a wet rag to wipe off more stubborn pet messes.
