3 Window Treatments To Revamp Your Boston Laundry Room06/27/2016Holly Perron When it comes to picking out new window treatments for your Boston home, the laundry room probably isn’t first on your priority list - but why not? A family of four washes an average of 412 loads of laundry each year, which adds up hours and hours spent in the laundry room. Your laundry room has more foot traffic than you’d think between all the tasks including sorting, washing, drying, and folding. So, why not make it a beautiful and comfortable place? These three window treatments can remake your laundry room into a room you like spending time in instead of a room you don’t like. 1. Polywood Shutters Polywood® plantation shutters can give your laundry room a modern, energy efficient facelift. If your utility bill has gotten more expensive over time, it could be due to your windows. Windows are one of the largest culprits for energy loss in your home. This is especially true in the laundry room with all of its large, working appliances. Our Polywood shutters are a smart way to reduce your energy costs since they block heat transfer through your window by up to 45%. And controlling how much light streams into your room is as simple as tilting a louver. Polywood shutters are built to last years without cracking, chipping, warping, or losing their color and finish. 2. Cellular Shades Cellular shades are a light, beautifully simple laundry room window treatment option. Pick from various opacities ranging from sheer to opaque to give you the light control you need. Keep them in the retracted position to brighten the room as you’re washing your clothes. Pull them down for more privacy. 3. Faux Wood Blinds If you’re looking for a budget-friendly, clean-cut window treatment to suit a smaller area, faux wood blinds are a strong choice. Faux wood blinds are a more affordable option than hardwood and are nearly the same in appearance, but can handle the temperature differences and humid conditions of your laundry room without warping or cracking.
