What Are The Best Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Raleigh?

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can survive a fun-loving, mischievous cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, chew up or bend, and tear window shades with their claws. What’s a cat owner to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Raleigh, think about plantation shutters. Their hardwearing materials and construction avoid damage by even the fiercest kitties. Here are all the reasons why louvered shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in Raleigh.


Your Kitty Can’t Tear Solid Interior Shutters

All cats love to claw and bite things. Despite the number of scratching posts you offer them, they’ll still attack things around your windows. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll should get some cat-proof window treatments in your Raleigh home. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and long-lasting. Your cat can’t shred or bend them. And if your especially rough feline leaves marks on a louver, you can have that piece repaired rather than purchasing a whole new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Dangle, Tangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know that they adore batting at things that hang down and sway, like your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when they have a pull string to bite and yank on. Then there are long drapery to clamber up and hide in. Unfortunately for you, your kitty’s games can ruin flimsy window treatments.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal ropes course, use interior shutters. Nothing on a shutter hangs down or moves when batted at. They just won’t attract cats how fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will look past them and go back to her own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your interior design too.

Louvered Shutters Let Cats Look Out The Window

Louvered shutters may not seem entertaining for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will love peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed all day while you have some privacy. If she enjoys sunbathing, adjust the louvers to direct sunlight toward the ground and keep it away from your eyes. Or you can open a single shutter panel to let your cat sit on the window sill for a full view.

Interior Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Sharing a home with a cat leads to lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Raleigh cat-proof window treatments like interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that just needs to be brushed off with a duster to get rid of most animal hair and dander. And both premium 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 wet rag to wipe off more stubborn muddy paw prints.
