3 Window Treatments To Remake Your New York City Laundry Room

June 27, 2016

When you’re looking for new window treatments for your New York City 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. Between all the tasks including sorting, washing, drying, and folding, your laundry room gets more foot traffic than you’d expect.

So, why not focus on your laundry room and make it an attractive and comfortable place to be in? These three window treatments will transform your laundry room into a place you want to spend time in instead of a room you don’t like.

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 culprits for temperature variation in your home. This is especially true in the laundry room where the washer and dryer are constantly at work.

Our Polywood shutters are a smart and stylish way to save money on your energy statements since they block heat transfer through your window by up to 45%. And controlling the amount of natural light that comes into your room is as easy as adjusting a louver. Polywood plantation shutters are built to last decades without warping, cracking, chipping, or fading.

2. Cellular Shades

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

3. Faux Wood Blinds

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly, clean-lined window treatment to suit a smaller space, faux wood blinds are a great choice. Faux wood blinds are more affordable than hardwood and look nearly identical, but can withstand the temperature differences and humidity of your laundry room without warping or cracking.
