For families with pets, window treatments can be a challenge. Trying to find the right match for décor and functional needs while still maintaining safety might seem impossible. However, Hunter Douglas, the leader in the window treatment industry, has created numerous features and options that make the search for window treatments for homes with pets less daunting. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Estero, we can show you all of the possibilities. Speak with one of our trained consultants today!
Ideas for Homes With Pets
Pets should feel comfortable and safe. They love to see outside, so blinds or shades should stay partway raised so the pet is less likely to damage window coverings that are out of the way. No window covering is completely safe from chewing and scratching, but you can take precautions to minimize the hazards. Some Hunter Douglas product solutions include:
-Duette® Honeycomb Shades are made from a durable fabric and are available in hundreds of colors and opacities. Add the top-down/bottom-up feature, and you have the best of all worlds: Lower the top, raise the bottom, or keep them in a combination of both. Honeycomb shades cover the entire window, so dogs tend not to bother them
-Vertical Solutions Vinyl Blinds offer an economical solution for sliding or patio doors. They come in an array of patterns and colors. If closed, your pets can nudge the slats to see outside and then they will fall back into place. The vinyl slats are also very easy to clean
-Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds have slats you can tilt, so pets can see out. They are easy to clean. They are more durable than wood; however, be aware that a large dog could still snap the slats
-NewStyle™ Hybrid or Palm Beach™ Polysatin Shutters are very durable and difficult for pets to maneuver open. They are available in grain-like finishes, whites and off-white colors, and three slat sizes. Dust with a cloth
-Designer Roller & Screen Shades offer a sleek modern style with remarkably smooth operation. Roller and screen shades are available in hundreds of fabric choices, opacities, textures, and solids. Pets can sneak behind the shade without the threat of the shade falling down
Pet-Safe Lift Systems
When considering pet safety, the lift system is as important as the product itself. Be sure to look for systems that are cordless or motorized or that have retractable lift cords, cord tensioners, or wand controls.
