The Ideal Window Treatments For Your Garage In Las Vegas

Darik Neilson

When thinking about your Las Vegas house’s window coverings, many folks tend to neglect the garage. After all, you usually only enter the garage when you need your car, and then you could be off to work or hauling groceries into the house. But if you spend any time in a garage-based workshop or gym, you understand that errant sunlight can reflect off of dust, exhaust, and wood shavings. And those garage windows also can be a privacy threat if they are not covered.

Picking out a window treatment for the garage in Las Vegas can be tricky. There’s a delicate balancing act between taste, durability, and performance. The treatments should match the rest of your windows 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 make it easy to wipe grime or gunk away.  

So with these ideas in hand, what are the best window treatments for your garage in Las Vegas?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Work Best In The Garage

Square Windows in a Las Vegas Garage with Plantation Shutters 

Faux wood plantation shutters check off all your garage’s demands, making them the perfect garage window treatments. Shutters are strong enough to handle dust, dirt and exhaust, which is needed for the garage, while showing their curb appeal. You open and close the shutters via a center tilt rod, which is simpler than fooling with cords in a dank and crowded space. Shutters even offer some energy efficiency to your garage which sees the most heat loss.

Faux wood shutters are also easy to keep clean. All the muck that comes into the garage can show on your window treatments.  The good news is you can get a damp rag and quickly wipe your faux wood plantation shutters to get rid of dirt and stains. A quality faux wood, like Polywood, also means that your plantation shutters shouldn’t chip, crack, warp or split -- no matter if your garage is wet or exposed to extreme temperatures.

What Window Coverings Do You Avoid For A Garage In Las Vegas?

While plantation shutters work wonderfully in the widows of your garage, you might be thinking about using a cheaper product. But that might not be the best idea, even for an overlooked room.

For instance, beware of anything that uses cloth. Cloth treatments, like curtains or Roman shades, will absorb all the stench and ash from your car’s exhaust.  In a short while, the treatment will start to look ratty and worn. You can change out the gross treatments with fresh treatments, but you may have to swap them out each year.

Vinyl blinds may also look appealing, as they are inexpensive and quick to install. But don’t underestimate the pressure internal cords take in your high-humidity garage. Just like cloth shades, the cords on vinyl window treatments might immediately soak up humidity and become sticky or frayed.  Extreme heat and humidity may even warp the slats! Eventually those vinyl blinds start to lose slats or become slanted to one side. The outcome is a haphazard mess that makes your garage look like a mess.
