What Are The Top Cat-Proof Window Treatments In San Jose?

March 04, 2022

Few window treatments can endure a fun-loving, clawed cat. Cats scale and pull down curtains, chew up or crease, 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 San Jose, think about plantation shutters. Their hardwearing construction and materials avoid damage from even the fiercest kitties. Here are even more reasons why louvered shutters are the perfect window treatments for cats in San Jose.


Your Cat Can’t Tear Solid Interior Shutters

All cats love to claw and bite things. No matter the number of scratching posts you offer them, your cat will still attack objects around your home. If that sounds like your fur baby, you’ll want cat-proof window treatments in your San Jose house. Both premium hardwood shutters and faux-wood shutters are solid and durable. Your cat can’t bend or tear them. And if your especially destructive feline leaves scratches on a shutter louver, you can have that piece fixed instead of purchasing a whole new treatment.

Interior Shutters Don’t Dangle, Tangle, Or Sway

If you live with cats, you know how they adore batting at anything that hangs down and sways, such as your blinds and fabric window shades. Even better when they have a pull string to bite and tug on. Then there are long curtains to scale and hide in. Regrettably for you, your cat’s activities can wreak havoc on delicate window coverings.

To keep your cat from treating your window treatments like its personal playground, invest in interior shutters. Nothing on them dangles or swings when batted at. They simply don’t tempt cats like blinds and fabric window treatments do. Chances are, your cat will just look past them and return to his own toys. Their elegant simplicity makes shutters easy to use and work into your decor too.

Interior Shutters Let Your Cat See Out The Window

Interior shutters may not seem entertaining for inquisitive, playful cats, but your kitty will love peeking outside between the shutter louvers. Open the louvers, and Whiskers can observe the cars and wildlifed all day while you enjoy some privacy. If she enjoys sunbathing, adjust the louvers to redirect sunlight toward the floor and keep it away from your face. Or you can open one of the shutter panels to let your kitty perch on the window sill for a clear view.

Louvered Shutters Make Cleaning Easy

Sharing a home with a cat leads to lots of hair everywhere. Pet hair can be difficult to get off of fabric window treatments. You’ll have an easier time cleaning your San Jose cat-proof window treatments such as 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 don’t have to worry about ruining the finish if you use a wet cloth to wipe off tougher pet messes.
