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 maybe it should be. A family of four washes an average of 412 loads of laundry annually, which translates to hours spent in the laundry room. Your laundry room has more foot traffic than you’d think between sorting, washing, drying, folding, and ironing.
So, why not focus on your laundry room and make it a comfortable and attractive place to spend your time in? These three window treatments can remake your laundry room into a room you like spending time in instead of a place you don’t like.
1. Polywood Shutters
Polywood® plantation shutters can give your laundry room a modern, energy efficient makeover. If your utility bill has gotten more expensive over time, it could be due to your windows. Windows are one of the largest causes for energy loss in your home. This is especially true in the laundry room where you have large appliances at work.
Our Polywood shutters are a smart way to reduce your energy bills 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 up or down a louver. These durable plantation-style 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. Choose from various opacities ranging from sheer to opaque so you can control the light coming into the room. Keep them in the retracted position to increase the light in 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-lined window treatment to fit a smaller area, faux wood blinds are a strong option. Faux wood blinds are a more affordable option than hardwood and look nearly identical, but are able to handle the temperature differences and humid conditions of your laundry room without warping or cracking.
