Hardworking Window Treatments for Laundry Rooms

Laundry rooms are among the most frequently neglected spots when choosing window treatments. Along with entryways, mudrooms, and garage windows, the windows in your laundry room should not be bare. Privacy may not be your biggest concern when you’re washing clothes, but the right window treatments add softness, warmth, and effortless elegance to any space.

Rolling with Humidity

Usually, when people talk about laundry rooms and baths, the topic of humidity comes up because it’s significantly higher than in other areas in your home. Here in Hawaii, we deal with moisture in every room all year, so working with it in laundry rooms is never a big deal. The team at Design 5 LTD. can help you design a delightful laundry room with shades and blinds that can withstand heat and humidity with the best of them.

The sleek lines and clean aesthetic of roller shades make them an excellent choice for laundry rooms of all sizes, even significantly smaller ones. Designer Solar Shades are a dream come true if you have a spectacular view to preserve but want to spare your laundry room from the damaging effects of UV rays. Five opacities are available, including fabric options, including the environmentally - friendly GreenScreen® Sea - Tex™ line made with reclaimed shoreline plastic.

Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ - Made for Hawaiian Homes

Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to frame pristine views, but the hardwood varieties don’t hold up well against the extreme heat and humidity we have in Hawaii. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Vinyl Shutters mimic the appearance of natural wood but offer exceptional performance when exposed to the elements. Customize your shutter with one of three louver widths, including 2 ½”, that looks fabulous on small windows often found in laundry areas. If the window sills in the room aren’t everything you hope for, consider the optional decorative sill cover because the details are just as important as the more significant components.

Making a Statement with Metal Blinds

Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds are lightweight, rust - resistant, and are a distinctive accent to a utilitarian - style laundry area. Metal blinds repel dust and fingerprints, meaning you’ll spend more time cleaning your clothes and less time dusting your blinds. The wide selection of finishes, including matte and marble, can add that perfect little something to an otherwise undecorated space. Sunshine and fresh air are great ways to stay motivated while doing housework, and the adjustable slats of blinds give you the flexibility to allow plenty of both into your laundry room without losing all privacy.
