3 Window Treatments To Remake Your Chicago Laundry Room

June 27, 2016

When you’re looking for window treatments for your Chicago home, the top priority probably isn’t your laundry room - but perhaps it should be. A family of four washes approximately 412 loads of laundry annually, which translates to hours spent in the laundry room. Between sorting, washing, and folding, your laundry room has more foot traffic than you’d expect.

So, why not make it a comfortable and attractive place to be in? These three window treatments can remake your laundry room into a space you want to be in instead of a space you avoid.

1. Polywood Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters give your laundry room a modern, energy efficient makeover. If your utility bill has gotten more expensive over time, your windows could be to blame. Windows are one of the biggest culprits for unsteady temperatures in your house. This is especially true in the laundry room where the washer and dryer are constantly at work.

Our Polywood shutters are a smart and stylish way to save money on your energy bills. They reduce up to 45% of heat transfer through your window. Controlling the amount of natural light that comes into your room is as simple as adjusting a louver. Polywood plantation shutters are built to last decades without warping, cracking, chipping, or losing their color and finish.

2. Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are a light, beautifully simple window treatment option for your laundry room windows. You can select from a selection of opacities ranging from sheer to opaque to let you choose how much light can come into the room. Keep them retracted to increase the light in the room as you’re sorting your clothes. Pull them down if you’d like more privacy.

3. Faux Wood Blinds

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly, clean-lined window treatment to fit a smaller space, faux wood blinds are a great choice. A more affordable window treatment than hardwood, faux wood blinds |look almost identical, but can withstand the variations in temperature and high humidity of your laundry room without cracking or warping.
