3 Window Treatments To Revamp Your Austin Laundry Room06/27/2016Tyler Jorgensen When it comes to picking out new window treatments for your Austin home, the top priority probably isn’t your laundry room - but perhaps it should be. A family of four washes an average of 412 loads of laundry each year, which means you’re spending hours in the laundry room. Between all the tasks including sorting, washing, drying, and folding, your laundry room has more foot traffic than you’d expect. So, why not focus on your laundry room and make it an attractive and comfortable place to spend your time in? These three window treatments will transform your laundry room into a room you like spending time in instead of a space you avoid. 1. Polywood Shutters Polywood® plantation shutters give your laundry room a modern, energy efficient transformation. If you’ve noticed a steady rise in your energy bill, it could be due to your windows. Windows are one of the main causes for energy loss in your house, especially in the laundry room where you have large appliances at work. Our Polywood shutters aren’t just beautiful. They’re also energy efficient window treatments that block heat transfer through your window by 45%, saving you money on your energy bill. And controlling how much light comes into the room is as simple as tilting up or down a louver. Polywood plantation shutters are built to last years without cracking, chipping, warping, or losing their finish and color. 2. Cellular Shades Cellular shades are a light, breezy window treatment option for your laundry room windows. Choose from various opacities ranging from sheer to opaque to give you the light control you need. Retract them to bring natural light in as you’re washing your clothes. Pull them down for extra privacy. 3. Faux Wood Blinds If you want a budget-friendly, modern window treatment to fit a small space, faux wood blinds are a popular pick. A more affordable covering than hardwood, faux wood blinds are nearly identical in appearance, but easily handle the humidity and variations in temperature of your laundry room without cracking.
