The Top Window Treatments For Kids And Pets in Las Vegas

January 17, 2019

When the whole family is in the house for long stretches of time, your home might start feeling smaller than ever. Main living spaces, like bedrooms and the family room, can easily fill up with play things. Wall photos  and window coverings  could possibly get damaged during a spontaneous game of tag or hot lava innocent roughhousing a unofficial game of inside catch.  Fingerprints and wet nose smudges can reflect on any surface, showing you exactly what spaces your kids and pets were in.

Like everything else in your home it should come as no surprise that you probably already understand that you will need some heavy-duty window treatments for kids and pets in Las Vegas. These treatments should be easy to clean and a snap to use -- and able to withstand an active family. That means getting rid of those fragile window shades and blinds and trying out a better treatment like a faux wood plantation shutter.

The Reasoning Against Hanging Window Treatments 

Most blinds have a habit of breaking around kids and pets in Las Vegas. That’s because blinds are made using long slats that are held up on the sides by thin cords. This allows the blind to be light and flexible. This makes the covering light and pliable. These window treatments can adequately cover your windows, but they can easily become damaged during a bout of horseplay. A sharp hit or a puppy face peeping through it can rip a slat from the cord or snap it in half. Plus, any cords dangling are a hidden hazard for both children and pets.

Curtain panels may not fare any better with children and animals. Because they hang loosely from a rod without anything underneath, they can be pulled down with a good pull. Those curtains that extend to the baseboards are the length for crawling babies or curious pups to grab onto. Cleaning curtains also poses an issue, as getting rid of ink handprints or paw markings anything beyond everyday wear-and-tear or pet paw prints and stains will be there until you haul the to the dry cleaners.

Faux wood plantation shutters are also great for kids and animals because they are easy to clean and will never warp, yellow, or crack. The solid louvers can stand up to almost anything thrown at them -- no matter what game your kids can concoct so don’t worry about finding replacement window treatments. All plantation shutters are cordless, which makes them a reliably safe window treatment for small children. And if anything does happen, Polywood® shutters come with a Lifetime Warranty.

Plantation Shutters Can Make A Creative Study Space In Las Vegas

While durable plantation shutters can withstand your kids’ indoor soccer match, they also help create an effective study space. Sunlight helps stimulate growing brains, but glare can be a distraction. Fortunately, you can angle your plantation shutters so that no matter what time of day learning occurs, you can bring the light in or keep the sun glare out. Sun glare never is an issue for your “students” because they won't get the glare in their eyes.

If you have to do e-learning, just shut the louvers all the way to suppress outside noise. Now, traffic or ambient noise won’t cause a distraction. Your learners won’t complain about heat loss in their learning space, as your faux wood shutters keep your rooms comfortable due to Polywood’s® energy-efficiency properties. And if your paper-mache volcano happens to be more than expected, just rub the debris off your plantation shutters with a damp rag.
