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

March 04, 2022

Few window coverings can endure a playful, mischievous cat. Cats climb and pull down drapes, gnaw on or bend, and claw at window shades. What’s a cat owner to do?

If you feel you’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Tampa, try plantation shutters. Their long-lasting construction and materials resist damage by even the most ferocious felines. Here are even more reasons why interior shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in Tampa.


Your Kitty Can’t Bring Down Hard Plantation Shutters

Every cat loves to claw and bite things. Despite how many scratching posts you give them, your cat will still attack items around the house. If that description fits your furball, you’ll need cat-proof window treatments in your Tampa house. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t bend or tear a louvered shutter. And if your especially rough feline leaves scratches on a louver, you can have that piece fixed instead of getting a whole new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Sway, Tangle, Or Dangle

If you have cats, you know that they love to bat at loose fabric, like fabric window shades and blinds. Even better when there’s a cord to bite and yank on. Then there are long drapery to scale and hide in. Regrettably for you, your cat’s activities can destroy flimsy window coverings.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments as its personal ropes course, use interior shutters. Nothing on the treatment dangles or moves when swatted. They just don’t attract cats how fabric window treatments and blinds do. Most likely, your cat will look past them and return to its own toys. Their sophisticated simplicity makes shutters easy for you to use and incorporate into your interior design too.

Louvered Shutters Let Cats See Outside

Louvered shutters may not seem entertaining for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will love looking out 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 enjoys sunbathing, adjust the louvers to redirect sunlight at the ground and keep it away from your face. Or you can open one shutter panel to let your cat stretch out 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 Tampa cat-proof 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 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 tougher pet messes.
