What Are The Top Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Salt Lake City?

March 04, 2022

Not many window treatments can survive a spirited, mischievous cat. Cats climb and pull down drapes, crease blinds or chew up, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’re out of options for cat-proof window treatments in Salt Lake City, consider plantation shutters. Their hardwearing construction and materials resist damage from even the fiercest felines. Here are all the reasons why interior shutters are the best window treatments for cats in Salt Lake City.


Your Kitty Can’t Tear Hard Louvered Shutters

All cats love to bite and claw things. No matter the number of scratching posts you offer them, they’ll still attack household objects. If that description fits your furball, you’ll need cat-proof window treatments in your Salt Lake City house. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t shred or bend a louvered shutter. And if your particularly rough feline leaves scratches on a louver, you can have that piece repaired rather than buying a completely new treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Tangle, Dangle, Or Sway

If you have cats, you know how they claw at things that hang down and sway, such as your fabric window shades and blinds. Even better if there’s a cord to bite and pull. Then there are long drapery to scale and hide in. Unfortunately for you, your cat’s fun 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 a shutter dangles or moves when batted at. They just won’t attract cats the way that blinds and fabric window treatments do. Most likely, your cat will just overlook them and return to his own toys. Their lovely simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and work into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Feline Watch Outside

Louvered shutters might not sound exciting for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will love peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can observe the cars and wildlifed during the day while you enjoy partial privacy. If she enjoys sunbathing, tilt the louvers to redirect sunlight at the floor and keep it away from your face. Or you can open one shutter panel to let her perch on the window sill for a full view.

Interior Shutters Make Cleaning Effortless

Owning a cat leads to lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be difficult to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Salt Lake City cat-proof window treatments like interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that only needs to be brushed off with a duster to remove animal hair and dander. And both premium 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 more stubborn paw prints.
