7 Mistakes To Avoid When Installing Window Grills For Cats

Cats are extremely inquisitive. They have a strong tendency to do exactly what they like and go exactly where they want no matter what you say. This usually leads them into trouble, and with their extreme flexibility and nimbleness, it is often very difficult to stop them. So if being worried about your cat getting hurt every time you open your window sounds like a familiar dilemma to you, it's time to do something about it. Window grills are the solution, for they allow you to open the windows without the consistent stress of your pet embarking on an unexpected perilous adventure.

7 Mistakes To Avoid When Installing Window Grills For Cats

While these crafty installations add to the safety of your feline friend, there are some aspects you need to consider and mistakes you need to avoid when installing them.

1. HIRING THE RIGHT PEOPLE:

One of the first things to remember when deciding which grill to install is to hire the right contractors. Unskilled labor can often do a shoddy job of the installation. This can lead to either a damaged grill or an ill-fitting job. It is necessary to have the grill installed properly since apart from it being your cat's safety net it is also the first thing people will see when entering the room. A poorly managed job not only means imminent danger for your pet but also extra costs. If money is what you are worried about, one slightly expensive installation is better than having to pay for two.

To top it off, approaching an experienced and well reputed company can also have many perks. Being in the business, they are likely to be able to give you a higher variety of grills to pick from as well as better quality. They will also be able to give you the right tips to maintain the grill properly, and you can be assured that the installation will be done without a glitch.

2. SIZE MATTERS:

While you may prefer a fancy design for your grill, you may not always be able to get the one you dream of. People sometimes forget to take their pets into consideration before picking a grill of their choice. Since cats have a knack of getting into tight spaces and escaping from just about everywhere, it is necessary to choose an option that deters them from doing so. As a result, you have to select a grill your cat can't fit through or escape by, because chances are, they are going to try. So pick an option that is small enough to make it impossible for your cat to squeeze through.
While your ideal design may not be available in this size, don't let your hopes down. There are still plenty of fancy and imaginative window grills available which are sure to suit your home.

3. DON'T RUSH:

We understand your worry for your cat, but you need to take a step back and think before selecting the window grill. After all, the grill is going to add further to the charm of your house. It is necessary to make the right decision over a quick one, because these installations are going to be around for a long time. Instead of making a decision that you regret in the future, pick a design you truly like. Make sure that it suits the decorations within the room and that the material of the grill is durable. It is always better to select an aluminium grill instead of the iron one. This is because with the increased humidity, the latter is sure to rust quick.

4. DESIGN:

When trying to choose a beautiful design, material and color choice, people often forget to consider them in relation to the room they will be installed in. While a design may look wonderful in a shop or by itself, a floral, wavy style may not go best with a room that has been decorated with more geometrical themes in mind. Instead, take the room into consideration before making making a decision. But don't be afraid to mix and match. A room with a modern, sleek, angular design could clash with a grill filled with swirly shapes, but it could be paired beautifully if the grill has a wavy elegant style. While your cat may not care about the styles and designs, it is sure to add to the ambiance within.

5. BE AWARE OF YOUR OPTIONS:

While window grills are essential for the protection of your cats, you don't want to pick an option without knowing your alternatives. Perhaps you may not like the idea of grills obstructing your vision all the time. In such a case, there are foldable grill options available as well. These can be folded to the side when your cats aren't around to give you that clear unobstructed view. This way, can have grill-free window whenever you want, yet not worry about your cats escaping every time the window is open. All you have to do is remember to open the grill in front of the window when the cats are around.

6. PRICING FIRST:

While this may not be the first thought that pops into your mind when you are worried about the safety of a loved one, but this is definitely a factor that requires consideration. There are many materials available in the market, each a different price range. Depending on your budget, you can sift through the different possible options for the window grill you are about to install. The price may also vary depending on the design as well as the seller. If you are on a tight budget, you need to scan the market well before making a decision.

7. COLOR CHOICE:

Window grills come in a variety of designs and colors. While the color won't stop your cat from rubbing against it, even trying to escape it, the right shade can definitely add a little extra to your house. Whatever your choice is, once decided, it will be around for a long time. So be sure to pick something that you like and will enjoy well into the future.

Keeping all of this in mind, you can't go wrong when installing a window grill for your cats. After all, while the primary purpose is for the safety of these feline friends, it is also necessary to keep its various other consequences in mind. By being aware of everything else, you can enjoy the beauty of the installation for a long time to come!
