The Top Window Treatments For Kids And Pets in Las Vegas

Darik Neilson

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 living and family rooms, can easily fill up with play things. Wall photos  and window coverings  could possibly get damaged during a rowdy game of catch or hot lava innocent roughhousing a unofficial game of inside catch.  Finger smudges and nose prints can reflect on any surface, showing you exactly what spaces your children 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 durable window treatments for kids and pets in Las Vegas. These treatments should be quick to clean and easy to use -- and able to withstand any active activity. That means getting rid of those fragile blinds and shades and trying out something like a faux wood plantation shutter.

 

The Reasoning Against Hanging Window Treatments 

Most blinds are prone to damage around kids and pets in Las Vegas. That’s because blinds are made using long slats that are held up on the sides by slender cords. This allows the blind to be light and flexible. This makes the covering light and pliable. Blinds can adequately cover your windows, but they can damage easily during a bit of horseplay. A quick bump or a fuzzy face peeping through it can rip a slat away from the cord or break it. Plus, any cords dangling are a hazard for both children and pets.
 
 
Curtain panels may not fare any better with kids or animals. Because they drape down 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 cleaning paint-covered handprints or paw markings anything beyond everyday wear-and-tear or pet pawprints and stains will be there until you haul the to the cleaners.

While durable plantation shutters can hold up to your kids’ whole house game of tag, they can also help create a creative study space. Sunlight helps motivate growing brains, but glare can be a distraction. Fortunately, you can direct 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 online school, you can shut the louvers all the way to muffle outside sound. 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 also keep the room comfortable due to Polywood’s® energy-efficiency benefits. And if your paper-mache volcano happens to be more than expected, just wipe the debris off your plantation shutters with a wet cloth.
