Laundry room with Polywood plantation shutters

3 Window Treatments To Revamp Your Minneapolis Laundry Room

June 27, 2016

When it comes to picking out new window treatments for your Minneapolis home, the laundry room probably isn’t at the top of your list — but maybe 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, drying, folding, and ironing, your laundry room has more foot traffic than you’d expect.

So, why not have your laundry room be a cozy and beautiful place? These three window treatments can remake your laundry room into a room you want to be in instead of a room you avoid.

1. Polywood Shutters

Polywood® plantation shutters can give your laundry room a relaxed, beautiful, energy efficient makeover. If your energy bill has risen over time, your windows could be to blame. Windows are one of the biggest culprits for temperature variation in your house, especially in the laundry room where the washer and dryer are constantly at work.

Our Polywood shutters are more than just stunning. They’re also energy efficient window treatments that block heat transfer through your window by 45%, saving you money on your energy costs. And controlling the amount of natural light that comes into your room is as easy as tilting up or down a louver. Polywood shutters can withstand years of use without cracking, chipping, warping, or losing their color and finish.


2. Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are a lighter laundry room window treatment option. Select from a selection of opacities ranging from sheer to opaque to give you the light control you need. Retract them to let in natural light as you’re folding your clothes. Pull them down for privacy.

3. Faux Wood Blinds

If you want a low-cost, clean-cut window treatment to complement a smaller space, faux wood blinds are a great pick. Faux wood blinds are more affordable than hardwood and look nearly the same, but easily withstand the humidity and temperature differences of your laundry room without warping or cracking.
