3 Window Treatments To Remake Your Charlotte Laundry Room06/27/2016Neil Blackwelder When it comes to picking out new window treatments for your Charlotte home, the laundry room probably isn’t first on your priority list - but why not? A family of four washes, on average, 412 loads of laundry each year, which translates to hours spent in the laundry room. Your laundry room gets more foot traffic than you’d expect between sorting, washing, drying, folding, and ironing. So, why not have your laundry room be a cozy and beautiful place to be? These three window treatments will remake your laundry room into a space you want to be in instead of a place you steer clear of. 1. Polywood Shutters Polywood® plantation shutters can give your laundry room a cozy, attractive, energy efficient makeover. If you’ve seen a gradual rise in your utility bill, your windows could be to blame. Windows are one of the largest causes for unsteady temperatures 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 save money on your energy statements since they reduce heat transfer through your window by up to 45%. And controlling how much light comes into your room is as easy as tilting a louver. These durable plantation-style shutters are built to last decades without warping, cracking, chipping, or losing their finish and color. 2. Cellular Shades Cellular shades are a light, simple laundry room window treatment option. You can choose from a range of opacities from sheer to opaque to let you choose how much light can come into the room. Keep them in the retracted position to let in natural light as you’re sorting your clothes. Pull them down if you’d like more privacy. 3. Faux Wood Blinds If you need a low-cost, modern window treatment to suit a smaller space, faux wood blinds are a popular option. Faux wood blinds are a more affordable option than hardwood and are nearly identical in appearance, but can deal with the high humidity and fluctuating temperatures of your laundry room without warping.
