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

March 04, 2022

Not many window coverings can endure a frisky, clawed cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, crease blinds or gnaw on, and rip 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 Atlanta, consider plantation shutters. Their sturdy materials and construction resist damage from even the most ferocious kitties. Here are even more reasons why louvered shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in Atlanta.


Your Kitty Can’t Rip Solid Interior Shutters

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

Interior Shutters Don’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you own cats, you know that they love to bat at loose fabric, such as your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better if they have a pull string to bite and pull. Then there are floor-length curtains to clamber up and hide in. Regrettably for you, your cat’s activities can destroy delicate window coverings.

To keep your cat from treating your window treatments as its personal obstacle course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment dangles or swings when pounced on. They simply won’t tempt cats like fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will just ignore them and return to her own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy to use and work into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Feline Look Outside

Interior shutters might not seem entertaining for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can watch the wildlife and cars during the day while you have partial privacy. If she likes to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to redirect light at the floor and keep it away from your eyes. Or you can open one shutter panel to let your cat perch on the window sill for a clear view.

Interior Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Sharing a home with a cat means lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Atlanta cat-proof window treatments like interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that only needs to be wiped down with a duster to remove most cat hair and dander. And both high-quality hardwood shutters and faux-wood Polywood® shutters are moisture-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about ruining the finish if you use a wet rag to clean off more stubborn pet messes.
