The Ideal Window Treatments For Your Garage In Las Vegas

May 23, 2019

As people in Las Vegas begin to purchase window treatments in their windows, many folks will overlook the garage. After all, you generally only use the garage when you want to use your car, and then you could be hurrying to work or carrying groceries into the house. But if you spend any time in a garage-based workshop or gym, you understand that errant sunlight can bounce off of dust, exhaust, and wood shavings. And those garage windows also pose 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 house while still being easy to use, even when the windows are installed in an awkward spot. Above all else, your window coverings should make it easy to wipe grime or gunk away.  

So with these ideas in mind, what are the perfect 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 fulfill all your garage’s demands, making shutters the perfect garage window treatments. Shutters are durable enough for 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 fumbling around with cords in a dank and crowded space. Shutters even offer some energy efficiency to your garage which sees the greatest amount of 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 and they should always look great. A quality faux wood, like Polywood, also means that your 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 hold up nicely to your garage’s unique climate, you might be thinking about installing a cheaper product. But that might not be the greatest choice, even for an overlooked room.

For instance, beware of anything made from cloth. Cloth treatments, like curtains or Roman shades, will absorb all the stench and ash from your car’s exhaust pipe.  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’ll just get more oily cloth treatments.

Vinyl blinds may also seem tempting, as they are inexpensive and quick to install. But don’t underestimate the pressure internal cords take in your high-moisture garage. Just like cloth shades, the cords on vinyl window treatments might immediately soak up humidity and become soggy.  The heat and humidity may even warp the slats! Pretty soon those vinyl blinds will lose slats or become unhinged on one side. The outcome is a dilapidated disaster that makes your garage look like a mess.
