When it comes to picking out window treatments for your home, the laundry room probably isn’t first on your priority list - but maybe it should be. A family of four does an average of 412 loads of laundry each year, which translates to hours spent in the laundry room. Between, sorting, washing, drying, folding, and ironing, your laundry room gets more foot traffic than you’d suspect.
So, why not make it an attractive and comfortable place to be? These three window treatments can help transform your laundry room into a space you like spending time in instead of a place you avoid.
Polywood® plantation shutters can give your laundry room a relaxed, modern, and energy efficient facelift. If you’ve noticed a steady rise in your energy bill, your windows could be to blame. Windows are one of the main culprits for unsteady temperatures in your home, especially in the laundry room where you have large appliances at work.
Our Polywood shutters are a smart and stylish way to save money on your energy costs since they reduce heat transfer through your window by up to 45%. And controlling the amount of natural light that comes into the room is as easy as tilting a louver. These durable plantation-style shutters can withstand years of use without cracking, chipping, warping, or diminishing in color and finish.
Cellular shades are a light, breezy window treatment option for your laundry room windows. You can choose from various opacities ranging from sheer to opaque to give you the light control you need. Retract them to let in natural light as you’re sorting your clothes and then pull them down if you’d like more privacy.
If you’re looking for a low-cost, clean-cut window treatment to suit a small space, faux wood blinds are a great choice. A more affordable choice than hardwood, faux wood blinds are nearly identical in appearance, but able to withstand the high humidity and fluctuating temperatures of your laundry room without warping or cracking.
