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

March 04, 2022

Not many window treatments can withstand a spirited, impish cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, chew up or crease, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Miami, consider plantation shutters. Their durable materials and construction avoid damage by even the most ferocious felines. Here are all the reasons why louvered shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in Miami.


Your Cat Can’t Rip Solid Plantation Shutters

Every cat loves to bite and claw things. No matter the number of scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack household things. If that sounds like your fur baby, you need cat-proof window treatments in your Miami house. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are hard and long-lasting. Your cat can’t bend or tear them. And if your especially rough feline does leave marks on a louver, just have that piece fixed instead of purchasing a completely new treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know that they claw at anything that hangs down and sways, like your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better if there’s a pull string to bite and pull on. Then there are floor-length drapes to climb and hide in. Unfortunately, your cat’s fun can wreak havoc on delicate window coverings.

To keep your cat from turning your window treatments into its personal playground, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on a shutter dangles or moves when swatted. They simply don’t entice cats how fabric window treatments and blinds do. Chances are, your cat will just overlook 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 Watch Out The Window

Interior shutters may not sound fun for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will enjoy looking out between the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can watch the cars and wildlifed all day while you enjoy partial privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to redirect light at the ground and keep it out of your face. Or you can open a single shutter panel to let your kitty perch on the window sill for a full view.

Interior Shutters Are Easy To Clean

Owning a cat means lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be challenging to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your Miami cat-friendly window treatments such as interior shutters. Their smooth, hard finish just needs to be wiped down with a duster to remove animal 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 paw prints.
