Living with Pets? Here’s How to Cover Your Windows

We always love to show some appreciation for our adorable furry friends, the ones who always adore us unconditionally. (Well, except cats, who have their unique way of expressing love.) Living with pets creates a unique dynamic filled with cuddles–and the occasional fur tumbleweed. When it comes to a pet-friendly home, choosing suitable window coverings becomes essential. You may be wondering which window coverings are the most suitable in this scenario.

Easy to Clean 

If there was one essential item on every pet lover’s must-have list, it would most likely be something that is “easy to clean.” Whether it’s fur, dust, or dirt, managing the maintenance of window treatments is just another cleaning task for pet owners. We’ve got a great selection of window coverings that are easy clean–even wipeable!

Pet Safety

When you have pets, life becomes an adventure, and ensuring their safety is super important. Dangling cords pose a risk of injury to curious pets. Therefore, opting for cordless options is consistently the safest choice when deciding on operating features.

Daily Wear and Tear 

If you share your living space with pets, you’ve likely caught yourself claiming, “This is why we can’t have nice things.” While we truly love our furry companions, their behaviors can often result in damage to our possessions. It becomes crucial to take measures to safeguard your window treatments from any potential harm caused by your pets. Don’t worry…we’ve got some that can stand up to the challenge!

A Private Room with a View 

A significant number of our beloved furry friends spend their time leisurely observing the outside world through windows. They often have a preferred spot for this activity. However, you can easily balance their desire for a view with the need for privacy and light control through simple modifications. By slightly opening one window while keeping the others protected, you can maintain a clear view for your pet while safeguarding your home from excessive sunlight, harmful UV rays, and prying eyes. Additionally, these designated areas can be enhanced with smart shades, which can be adjusted swiftly or even scheduled to ensure your pets can enjoy the view effortlessly.
