The Best Window Coverings For Your Garage In Atlanta

May 23, 2019

When choosing your Atlanta house’s window coverings, many folks will overlook the garage. After all, you usually only enter the garage when you need your car, and then you might be off to work or lugging groceries into the house. But if you spend any time in a garage-based workshop or gym, you will see that errant sunlight can reflect off of dust, exhaust, and wood shavings. You also will want something up to prevent potential burglars from figuring if you’re away or home.

Selecting a window covering for the garage in Atlanta can be hard. There’s a lot to consider regarding taste, durability, and performance. The treatments should try to complement the rest of your rooms while still being easy to use, even if the windows are located in a hard to reach spot. When all said and done, your window coverings should be easy to clean.  

And with these criteria in play, what are the perfect window coverings for your garage in Atlanta?

Faux Wood Plantation Shutters Are Perfect In The Garage

Small Windows in a Atlanta Garage with Polywood Shutters 

Faux wood plantation shutters fulfill all your garage’s demands, making them the perfect garage window coverings. While practical, shutters enhance your house’s curb appeal. You can open the shutters through a center tilt rod, which works much better than fumbling around with cords in a dark and crowded space. Shutters even give 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 collect on your shutters.  However, you can use a wet rag and quickly wipe your faux wood plantation shutters to clean dust, dirt, and exhaust. A quality faux wood, like Polywood, also means that your shutters won’t chip, crack, warp or split -- especially if your garage is damp or unheated.

What Window Coverings Do You Avoid For Your Garage In Atlanta?

While plantation shutters work perfectly in the widows of your garage, you might be tempted into using a cheaper product. But that might not be the most prudent choice, even for a dirty space.

First, beware of anything that uses cloth. Cloth treatments, like curtains or Roman shades, will soak up all the stench and smoke from your car’s exhaust.  In a short while, the covering will start to look old and worn out. You can change out the curtains with different curtains, but you’ll just end up with more ratty looking cloth treatments.

Vinyl blinds may also look appealing, as they are cheap and ready to install. But vinyl blinds rarely hold up to a garage’s moisture and temperature issues. Just like cloth coverings, the cords on vinyl window treatments can immediately soak up humidity and become dilapidated.  Garage heat and humidity can even melt the vinyl! After a while those vinyl blinds start to lose slats or break a cord, making it look tilted to one side. And while the main house looks nice and put together, your garage seems like a disaster.
