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

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can endure a frisky, clawed cat. Cats scale and pull down drapes, crease blinds or gnaw on, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Dallas, consider plantation shutters. Their long-lasting construction and materials avoid damage from even the fiercest felines. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in Dallas.


Your Kitty Can’t Rip Solid Louvered Shutters

All cats love to bite and claw things. No matter how many scratching posts you give them, your cat will still attack items around your home. If that description fits your fur baby, you need cat-proof window treatments in your Dallas home. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t bend or shred a shutter. And if your particularly destructive cat does leave scratches on a shutter louver, you can have that piece fixed instead of buying a completely new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Sway, Dangle, Or Tangle

If you own cats, you know that they adore batting at loose fabric, such as fabric window shades and blinds. Even better if they have a cord to bite and pull. Then there are long drapery to clamber up and hide in. Unfortunately for you, your kitty’s activities can wreak havoc on flimsy window coverings.

To keep your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal obstacle course, use interior shutters. Nothing on a shutter dangles or swings when batted at. They just don’t attract cats how blinds and fabric window treatments do. Most likely, your cat will overlook them and go back to his own toys. Their lovely simplicity makes shutters easy to use and work into your decor too.

Louvered Shutters Let Cats Look Outside

Interior shutters might not sound entertaining for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy peeking out between the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed all day while you enjoy some privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, adjust the louvers to direct sunlight toward the floor and keep it away from your face. Or you can open a single shutter panel to let your cat sit on the window sill for an unfettered view.

Louvered Shutters Make Cleaning Effortless

Owning a cat leads to lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your Dallas cat-friendly window treatments like interior shutters. Their smooth, hard finish only needs to be brushed off with a duster to get rid of cat hair and dander. And both high-quality faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t damage the finish if you use a wet sponge to clean off tougher muddy paw prints.
