What Are The Top Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Cleveland?

March 04, 2022

Not many window treatments can endure a frisky, impish cat. Cats climb and pull down curtains, bend blinds or chew up, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in Cleveland, consider plantation shutters. Their sturdy construction and materials avoid damage from even the wildest kitties. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in Cleveland.


Your Cat Can’t Bring Down Hard Interior Shutters

Every cat loves to bite and claw things. No matter how many scratching posts you give them, they’ll still attack household items. If that description fits your furball, you’ll need cat-proof window treatments in your Cleveland house. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are hard and durable. Your cat can’t shred or bend a louvered shutter. And if your especially aggressive cat leaves scratches on a shutter louver, you can have that piece repaired rather than buying a whole new treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you own cats, you know that they claw at anything that hangs down and sways, such as your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when there’s a cord to bite and yank. Then there are floor-length drapes to climb and hide in. Unfortunately, your kitty’s activities can ruin sub-par window coverings.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal obstacle course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on a shutter hangs down or swings when pounced on. They simply won’t entice cats how fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will overlook them and go back to his own toys. Their sophisticated simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Feline See Outside

Interior shutters may not seem fun for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy looking out through the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed all day while you enjoy partial privacy. If she likes to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to direct sunlight toward the floor and keep it out of your face. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let your cat stretch out on the window sill for a clear view.

Louvered Shutters Make Cleaning Easy

Sharing a home with a cat means lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be challenging to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Cleveland cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. Their smooth, hard finish just needs to be brushed off with a duster to get rid of 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 damp rag to clean off more stubborn paw prints.
