Pet-Friendly Window Treatments: Designing Spaces that Accommodate Furry Friends

As a pet owner, creating a stylish and comfortable home that accommodates your furry friends can be a balancing act. When it comes to window treatments, you need options that not only enhance your home’s décor but also stand up to the wear and tear caused by pets. At Budget Blinds of Chicago East and beyond, we offer a variety of pet-friendly window treatments that are both durable and stylish. Here are some of our best options for households with pets and how you can design a space that meets your needs.

What Window Treatments Are Best for Pet Hair?

Pet hair can be a constant battle, especially on window treatments that attract and hold onto fur. The best window treatments for pet hair are those that are easy to clean and maintain. Here are some top choices:

·       Roller Shades: These shades have a smooth surface that doesn’t trap pet hair, making them easy to wipe down.

·       Cellular Shades: Their dust-repellent properties make them a good choice for minimizing pet hair accumulation.

·       Vertical Blinds: These are great for sliding doors and large windows, and they can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.

What Window Treatments Are Safest for Pets?

Safety is a top priority when choosing window treatments for homes with pets. Here are some pet-safe options:

·       Cordless Blinds and Shades: These eliminate the risk of pets getting tangled in cords, ensuring a safer environment.

·       Motorized Blinds: Part of our Smart Home Collection, these can be operated with a remote or smartphone app, keeping cords out of reach entirely.

Motorized products from our Smart Home Collection not only enhance safety but also offer convenience and sophistication. These advanced window treatments can be programmed to open and close at specific times, creating a comfortable environment for both you and your pets.

Which Window Treatments Offer the Highest Level of Durability for Households with Pets?

Durability is essential for custom window coverings in pet-friendly homes. Here are some of the most durable options available:

·       Faux Wood Blinds: Resistant to scratching and chewing, faux wood blinds are robust and easy to clean.

·       Aluminum Blinds: These blinds are less likely to bend or break, making them a sturdy option for homes with active pets.

·       Vinyl Shades: Durable and moisture-resistant, vinyl shades can withstand a lot of wear and tear.

At Budget Blinds of Chicago East, we understand the importance of durability, which is why we include our industry-leading No-Questions-Asked (NQA) Warranty on the majority of our new window treatments. This exclusive warranty offers a one-time repair or replacement free of charge within five years from the date of purchase, regardless of the cause of damage. This means you can have peace of mind knowing that your investment is protected, even in the most pet-friendly households.
