As homeowners in Kingsport start to put up window treatments in their windows, some homeowners will neglect the garage. After all, you generally only use the garage when you use your car, and then you may be off to work or lugging groceries into the house. But if you spend any time in a garage-based workshop or gym, you understand that sunlight can refract off of dust, exhaust, and wood shavings. And those garage windows also can be a privacy problem if they are not covered.
Choosing a window treatment for the garage in Kingsport can be tough. There’s a delicate balancing act between taste, durability, and functionality. The coverings should match the rest of your house while still being easy to use, even when the windows are installed in a hard to reach spot. When all said and done, your window coverings should come clean easily.
And with these ideas in play, what are the nicest window coverings for your garage in Kingsport?
Polywood Plantation Shutters Are Perfect In The Garage
Faux wood plantation shutters
meet all your garage’s demands, making these treatments the perfect garage window coverings. Shutters have plenty of sophistication, but still are durable enough for the garage. You open and close the shutters simply by using a center tilt rod, which is much easier than grappling with cords in a dank and crowded space. Shutters even offer some energy efficiency
to a room that sees a great deal of heat loss.
Faux wood plantation shutters are also easy to keep clean. Inside dust and outside leaves, grass, and pollen can build up on your window treatments. However, you can use a wet rag and wipe down your faux wood plantation shutters and they will always come clean. A quality faux wood, like Polywood, also means that your window treatments won’t chip, crack, warp or split -- especially if your garage is dank or without conditioned air or heat.
What Window Coverings Should You Avoid For Your Garage In Kingsport?
While plantation shutters work wonderfully in the widows of your garage, you might be considering buying a vinyl product. Unfortunately, that may not be the greatest choice, even for a seldom-used room.
For instance, beware of anything that makes use of fabric. Cloth treatments, like curtains or Roman shades, will soak up all the odors and grime from your car’s emissions. In just a year or two, the treatment will begin to look old and worn out. You can replace the curtains with different curtains, but you will have to change them out again and again.
Vinyl blinds may also seem tempting, as they are cheap and quick to install. But vinyl blinds can’t repel your garage’s moisture and temperature issues. Just like cloth curtains, the cords on vinyl window treatments can begin to take in the wetness and become dilapidated. The heat and humidity might even warp the slats! Pretty soon those vinyl blinds will lose slats or become permanently tilted to one side. And while your other rooms looks like home, your garage seems like a mess.
