What Are The Top Cat-Proof Window Treatments In New Brunswick?

March 04, 2022

Not many window treatments can endure a fun-loving, mischievous cat. Cats scale and pull down drapes, bend blinds or chew up, and rip window shades with their claws. What’s a cat parent to do?

If you think you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in New Brunswick, consider plantation shutters. Their long-lasting construction and materials resist damage by even the wildest felines. Here are all the reasons why louvered shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in New Brunswick.


Your Cat Can’t Rip Solid Interior Shutters

All cats love to claw and bite things. Despite how many scratching posts you give them, they’ll still attack things around your home. If that sounds like your fur baby, you want cat-proof window treatments in your New Brunswick home. Both faux-wood shutters and premium hardwood shutters are hard and long-lasting. Your cat can’t tear or bend a shutter. And if your particularly destructive cat leaves scratches on a shutter louver, just have that piece repaired rather than purchasing a completely new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Sway, Dangle, Or Tangle

If you live with cats, you know how they love to bat at things that hang down and sway, such as fabric window shades and blinds. Even better if there’s a pull string to bite and yank. Then there are long curtains to climb and hide in. Regrettably for you, your kitty’s fun can destroy flimsy window treatments.

To keep your cat from treating your window treatments as its personal ropes course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment hangs down or swings when pounced on. They simply won’t entice cats like blinds and fabric window treatments do. Chances are, your cat will just look past them and go back to his own toys. Their sophisticated simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Cat Look Out The Window

Interior shutters may not seem exciting for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will love looking outside between the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can observe the cars and wildlifed during the day while you have partial privacy. If she enjoys sunbathing, adjust the louvers to redirect light toward 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.

Louvered Shutters Make Cleaning Easy

Owning a cat leads to lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be challenging to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your New Brunswick cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. They have a smooth, hard finish that only needs to be wiped down with a duster to remove 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 wet cloth to wipe off more stubborn muddy paw prints.
