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

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can withstand a spirited, impish cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, gnaw on or bend, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat owner to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Houston, try plantation shutters. Their durable construction and materials avoid damage by even the wildest kitties. Here are all the reasons why louvered shutters are the best window treatments for cats in Houston.


Your Cat Can’t Bring Down Solid Plantation Shutters

Every cat loves to bite and claw things. No matter the number of scratching posts you give them, your cat will still attack household items. If that description fits your fur baby, you need cat-proof window treatments in your Houston home. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and long-lasting. Your cat can’t bend or shred them. And if your particularly aggressive feline does leave marks on a shutter louver, you can have that piece fixed rather than getting a completely new treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Sway, Dangle, Or Tangle

If you own cats, you know how they adore batting at anything that hangs down and sways, such as blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when they have a cord to bite and yank on. Then there are floor-length drapery to clamber up and hide in. Unfortunately for you, your kitty’s activities can destroy delicate window treatments.

To keep your cat from turning your window treatments into its personal obstacle course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on a shutter dangles or moves when pounced on. They just don’t attract cats the way that fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will look past them and return to his own toys. Their lovely simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your decor too.

Louvered Shutters Let Cats See Outside

Louvered shutters may not seem fun for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy looking out through the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can watch the wildlife and cars during the day while you have some privacy. If she likes to sunbathe, adjust the louvers to direct light at the floor and keep it away from your eyes. Or you can open one shutter panel to let her sit on the window sill for an unfettered view.

Interior Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Sharing a home with a cat means lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be challenging to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Houston cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. Their smooth, hard finish only needs to be brushed off with a duster to get rid of most cat hair and dander. And both high-quality hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters are moisture-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about damaging the finish if you use a damp rag to clean off more stubborn muddy paw prints.
