Hunter Douglas Options for Homes With Pets

There are many options to consider, but for numerous reasons, if you have pets, you should avoid mini blinds, fabric shades, fabric verticals, draperies, and corded blinds or shades. Remember to select the right product and fabric to meet your pet’s personality. No window covering is completely safe from chewing and scratching, but you can take precautions to minimize the hazards. Hunter Douglas offers many products that will add beauty to your home while being pet-friendly and safe. Here are a few product selections.

  • Duette® Honeycomb Shades – honeycomb shade fabric is very durable is available in hundreds of colors and opacities. You could choose the top-down/bottom-up feature with LiteRise® cordless system, which allows you the ultimate in shade control: you can 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.
  • NewStyle™ Hybrid or Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters – Both shutter options are very durable—they can withstand slight to medium pressure, so they are difficult for pets to maneuver open. Shutters are available in grain-like finishes, in whites and off-white colors. They come in three slat sizes, for flexibility in light and privacy control. And cleaning is a breeze: Simply dust with a cloth.
  • Designer Roller & Screen Shades – You can raise the shade to a comfortable position, so your pet can see out. These shades offer a sleek, modern style with the smallest light gap in the industry. 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.
