What Are The Ideal Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Seattle?

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can survive a frisky, impish cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, bend blinds or chew up, and rip window shades with their claws. What’s a cat owner to do?

If you feel you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in Seattle, try plantation shutters. Their durable materials and construction resist damage by even the most ferocious kitties. Here are all the reasons why interior shutters are the best window treatments for cats in Seattle.


Your Cat Can’t Tear Hard Louvered Shutters

Every cat loves to claw and bite things. No matter the number of scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack items around your home. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll should get some cat-proof window treatments in your Seattle home. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are hard and durable. Your cat can’t bend or tear them. And if your particularly aggressive cat does leave scratches on a louver, just have that piece repaired instead of getting a completely new treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you live with cats, you know that they claw at things that hang down and sway, like your fabric window shades and blinds. Even better when they have a pull string to bite and yank. Then there are floor-length drapes to clamber up and hide in. Regrettably, your cat’s games can ruin sub-par window treatments.

To keep your cat from treating your window treatments as its personal playground, use interior shutters. Nothing on them hangs down or swings when batted at. They simply won’t attract cats the way that fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will look past them and return to her own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and incorporate into your interior design too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Cat Watch Outside

Interior shutters may not sound fun for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can observe the wildlife and cars during the day while you enjoy some privacy. If she likes to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to direct light toward the floor and keep it away from your eyes. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let her perch on the window sill for a full view.

Interior Shutters Make Cleaning Effortless

Sharing a home with a cat means lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your [[targetlocation]] cat-friendly window treatments such as 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 high-quality 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 paw prints.
