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 focus on your laundry room and make it a comfortable and attractive place to be in? These three window treatments can remake your laundry room into a place you want to be in instead of a space you steer clear of. 1. Polywood Shutters Polywood® plantation shutters give your laundry room a modern, energy efficient facelift. If you’ve seen a gradual rise in your utility bill, your windows could be to blame. Windows are one of the biggest culprits for unsteady temperatures in your house, especially in the laundry room where the washer and dryer are constantly at work. Our Polywood shutters aren’t just stunning. They’re also energy efficient window treatments that reduce heat transfer through your window by 45%, saving you money on your energy costs. And controlling how much light streams into your room is as simple as adjusting a louver. Polywood plantation shutters can withstand years of use without warping, cracking, chipping, or losing their color and finish. 2. Cellular Shades Cellular shades are a light, breezy laundry room window treatment option. 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. Pull them up to increase the light in the room as you’re folding your clothes and then pull them down if you’d like more privacy. 3. Faux Wood Blinds If you’re looking for a budget-friendly, clean-cut 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 are able to withstand the fluctuating temperatures and humid conditions of your laundry room without cracking or warping.
