When it’s time to choose new window treatments for your Austin home, the laundry room probably isn’t first on your priority list - but perhaps it should be. A family of four washes an average of 412 loads of laundry annually, which means you’re spending hours in the laundry room. Your laundry room gets more foot traffic than you’d suspect between all the tasks including sorting, washing, drying, and folding.
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 can help transform your laundry room into a room you like spending time in instead of a space you steer clear of.
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 largest causes for energy loss in your house, especially in the laundry room with all of its large, working appliances.
Our Polywood shutters aren’t just beautiful. They’re also energy efficient window treatments that block heat transfer through your window by 45%, reducing your energy bill. And controlling how much light comes into the room is as simple as tilting a louver. Polywood plantation shutters are built to last years without chipping, cracking, warping, or losing their finish and color.
2. Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are a light, breezy window treatment option for your laundry room windows. Pick from a range of opacities 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 and then pull them down for extra privacy.
3. Faux Wood Blinds
If you’re searching for a budget-friendly, modern window treatment to suit a small room, faux wood blinds are a popular pick. A more affordable covering than hardwood, faux wood blinds look nearly the same, but can handle the fluctuating temperatures and humidity of your laundry room without cracking.
