What Are The Ideal Cat-Proof Window Treatments In New York?

March 04, 2022

Few window treatments can endure a playful, clawed cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, chew up or crease, and rip window shades with their claws. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in New York, try plantation shutters. Their hardwearing materials and construction resist damage from even the most ferocious felines. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the best window treatments for cats in New York.


Your Kitty Can’t Tear Solid Interior Shutters

Every cat loves to bite and claw things. Despite how many scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack household objects. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll should get some cat-proof window treatments in your New York home. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t bend or shred a louvered shutter. And if your especially rough feline does leave scratches on a louver, you can have that piece fixed rather than purchasing a whole new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Dangle, Tangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know how they love to bat at loose fabric, such as blinds and fabric window shades. Even better if there’s a pull string to bite and yank on. Then there are long drapes to climb and hide in. Regrettably, your cat’s activities can ruin sub-par window treatments.

To prevent your cat from making your window treatments into its personal ropes course, use interior shutters. Nothing on them dangles or moves when swatted. They simply won’t tempt cats how blinds and fabric window treatments do. Most likely, your cat will ignore them and return to its own toys. Their sophisticated simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Feline See Outside

Louvered shutters might not sound exciting for inquisitive, lively cats, but your kitty will enjoy looking outside between the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can watch the wildlife and cars during the day while you enjoy some privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, adjust the louvers to direct sunlight at the ground and keep it out of your face. Or you can open one shutter panel to let her perch on the window sill for an unfettered view.

Interior Shutters Are Effortless To Clean

Living with a cat leads to lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be challenging to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your New York cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that just needs to be wiped down with a duster to remove animal hair and dander. And both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t damage the finish if you use a wet rag to wipe off tougher muddy paw prints.
