What Are The Best Cat-Proof Window Treatments In Boise?

March 04, 2022

Few window treatments can survive a frisky, mischievous cat. Cats scale 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’ve exhausted your options for cat-proof window treatments in Boise, try plantation shutters. Their durable materials and construction resist damage by even the fiercest kitties. Here are all the reasons why interior shutters are the ideal window treatments for cats in Boise.


Your Cat Can’t Tear Solid Louvered Shutters

All cats love to bite and claw things. Despite how many scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack household objects. If that description fits your fur baby, you’ll want cat-proof window treatments in your Boise house. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t tear or bend a louvered shutter. And if your particularly destructive feline does leave marks on a shutter louver, just have that piece fixed instead of buying a whole new window treatment.

Interior Shutters Won’t Dangle, Tangle, Or Sway

If you live with cats, you know how they love to bat at things that hang down and sway, such as your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when they have a cord to bite and pull. Then there are floor-length curtains to scale and hide in. Regrettably, your cat’s activities can wreak havoc on sub-par window treatments.

To prevent your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal ropes course, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on them dangles or moves when swatted. They just won’t tempt cats the way that fabric window treatments and blinds do. Chances are, your cat will just ignore them and go back to her own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy to use and incorporate into your interior design too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Feline Watch Outside

Louvered shutters may not sound entertaining for curious, playful cats, but your kitty will love peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Tilt the louvers open, and Whiskers can observe the wildlife and cars all day while you have some privacy. If she wants to sunbathe, tilt the louvers to direct light toward the floor and keep it out of your face. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let your cat perch on the window sill for an unfettered view.

Interior Shutters Are Effortless To Clean

Living with a cat means lots of hair all over. Pet hair can be challenging to remove from fabric window treatments. You’ll have a better time cleaning your Boise cat-proof window treatments such as interior shutters. Their smooth, hard finish only needs to be brushed off with a duster to remove most animal hair and dander. And both high-quality faux-wood Polywood® shutters and hardwood shutters are moisture-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about ruining the finish if you use a damp sponge to clean off tougher muddy paw prints.
