3 Window Treatments To Transform Your Minneapolis Laundry Room

George Christ

When it’s time to choose new window treatments for your Minneapolis home, the laundry room probably isn’t at the top of your list - but why not? A family of four washes approximately 412 loads of laundry annually, which adds up hours and hours spent in the laundry room. Between all the tasks including sorting, washing, drying, and folding, your laundry room has more foot traffic than you’d expect.

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

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.

Not only are our Polywood shutters stunning. They’re also energy efficient window treatments that block heat transfer through your window by 45%, reducing your energy costs. And controlling the amount of natural light that comes into your room is as easy as tilting a louver. Polywood shutters are built to last decades without cracking, chipping, warping, or fading.

2. Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are a light, simple laundry room window treatment option. Select from a selection of opacities ranging from sheer to opaque so you can control the light coming into the room. Retract them to let in natural light as you’re folding your clothes and then pull them down for more privacy.

3. Faux Wood Blinds

If you’re searching for a low-cost, clean-cut window treatment to complement a smaller room, faux wood blinds are a great pick. Faux wood blinds are more affordable than hardwood and are nearly the same in appearance, but easily deal with the humidity and temperature differences of your laundry room without warping or cracking.
