Best Pet-Friendly Shades for Cats and Dogs

Nothing is better than opening the window on a nice, summer day to let in some beautiful outside air and sunshine. That is, until your dog sees the mailman and starts barking like crazy!. Or maybe a window in your house shines the light right in your eyes while you’re working, but closing the blinds only leads to the family cat deciding it’s time for them to have a boxing match with the closed blinds. Pets can make using your blinds-and keeping them looking good-a challenge. But, here at Mill Design & Blinds, we have the expertise and the catalog to ensure that you have just the right blinds, no matter what kind of furry friend you have at home!

Top-Down/Bottom-Up Shades

When it comes to pet-friendly shades, one of the best options is the Top-Down/Bottom-Up Shade system from Hunter Douglas. This system offers a huge amount of versatility, allowing you to operate position your window treatments on just the top half or bottom half of your window. Once installed, you can roll down the top of your shades to let some natural light into your living room, while ensuring that the family dog can’t peek outside of that window. Or, if the cat wants to look outside or lay in the  sun, simply raise the bottom of the blinds just enough to let them see out. Hunter Douglas’s Top-Down/Bottom-Up Shades offer the perfect solution to keeping your pets happy while maintaining control over the light in your home.
