What Are The Ideal Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Virginia Beach?

March 04, 2022

Not many window treatments can withstand a playful, mischievous cat. Cats climb and pull down drapes, gnaw on or crease, and tear window shades with their claws. What’s a cat owner to do?

If you think you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in Virginia Beach, think about plantation shutters. Their hardwearing materials and construction resist damage from even the wildest felines. Here are all the reasons why louvered shutters are the best window treatments for cats in Virginia Beach.


Your Cat Can’t Bring Down Hard Interior Shutters

All cats love to bite and claw things. No matter how many scratching posts you give them, they’ll still attack household objects. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll need cat-proof window treatments in your Virginia Beach house. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and long-lasting. Your cat can’t tear or bend a louvered shutter. And if your particularly rough feline leaves scratches on a shutter louver, you can have that piece fixed rather than buying a completely new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Dangle, Tangle, Or Sway

If you live with cats, you know how they love to bat at loose fabric, like blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when they have a pull string to bite and tug on. Then there are floor-length drapes to clamber up and hide in. Unfortunately for you, your cat’s games can destroy sub-par window treatments.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal ropes course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment hangs down or sways when pounced on. They just won’t tempt cats the way that blinds and fabric window treatments do. Chances are, your cat will overlook them and return to his own toys. Their sophisticated simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and work into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Cat Watch Out The Window

Louvered shutters may not seem fun for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy looking outside through the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can observe the wildlife and cars all day while you have partial privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, adjust the louvers to direct sunlight at the floor and keep it away from your face. Or you can open one shutter panel to let her stretch out on the window sill for an unfettered view.

Interior Shutters Make Cleaning Easy

Sharing a home with a cat leads to lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be challenging to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your [[targetlocation]] cat-friendly window treatments such as interior shutters. Their smooth, hard finish only needs to be brushed off with a duster to get rid of most animal hair and dander. And both premium faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you won’t ruin the finish if you use a damp cloth to clean off more stubborn muddy paw prints.
