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

March 04, 2022

Few window treatments can survive a playful, impish cat. Cats climb and pull down curtains, gnaw on or crease, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you feel you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in Honolulu, think about plantation shutters. Their durable materials and construction avoid damage from even the wildest felines. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in Honolulu.

 

Your Kitty Can’t Bring Down Hard Louvered Shutters

Every cat loves to bite and claw things. No matter the number of scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack things around the house. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll need cat-proof window treatments in your Honolulu home. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t bend or tear them. And if your particularly rough feline leaves scratches on a louver, you can have that piece repaired rather than purchasing a whole new treatment.
 

Interior Shutters Don’t Dangle, Tangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know how they claw at anything that hangs down and sways, like your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when there’s a pull string to bite and tug. Then there are long curtains to climb and hide in. Regrettably for you, your kitty’s games can destroy flimsy window coverings.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal obstacle course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on them hangs down or swings when batted at. They just don’t tempt cats how blinds and fabric window treatments do. Most likely, your cat will just ignore them and return to his own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and incorporate into your decor too.

Louvered Shutters Let Cats Look Out The Window

Louvered shutters may not seem fun for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will love peeking outside through the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can observe the cars and wildlifed all day while you have some privacy. If she likes to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to direct light toward the ground and keep it away from your eyes. Or you can open a single shutter panel to let her perch on the window sill for a clear view.

Louvered Shutters Are Effortless To Clean

Living with a cat means lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be difficult to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Honolulu cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that just needs to be wiped down with a duster to remove most cat 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 wet sponge to clean off tougher pet messes.
