The Best Window Coverings For Your Garage In Destin

Eric Ramsey

When choosing your Destin home’s window coverings, many people might forget about the garage. After all, you generally only use the garage when you use your car, and then you could be off to work or lugging groceries into the house. But if you have a garage-based workshop or gym, you will see that sunlight can refract off of dust, exhaust, and wood shavings. You also may need some sort of covering up to obstruct snoops from knowing if you’re home or not.

Selecting a window treatment for the garage in Destin can be tough. There’s a lot to consider regarding style, durability, and performance. The coverings should try to complement the rest of your house while still being easy to use, even if the windows are installed in a corner spot. Ultimately, your window coverings should make it easy to wipe grime or gunk away.  

And with these details in play, what are the nicest window treatments for your garage in Destin?

Polywood Plantation Shutters Work Best 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 stylish curb appeal, but still are stain and water resistant enough for the garage. You open and close the shutters simply by using a center tilt rod, which is much easier than fumbling around with cords in a dark and crowded space. Shutters even offer some energy efficiency to your garage which experiences a great deal of heat loss.

Faux wood 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 to remove all that garage dirt. A quality faux wood, like Polywood, also means that your window treatments won’t chip, crack, warp or split -- no matter if your garage is dank or without conditioned air or heat.

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

While plantation shutters work perfectly in the widows of your garage, you might be considering buying a vinyl covering. However, that may not be the best idea, even for a dirty room.

For instance, don’t get anything that makes use of cloth. Cloth coverings, like curtains or Roman shades, will absorb all the smells and ash from your car’s exhaust.  After a short time, the treatment will start to look old and worn out. You can replace the gross treatments with new ones, but you’ll just end up with more disheveled cloth treatments.

Vinyl blinds may also seem tempting, as they are inexpensive and easy to install. But vinyl blinds can’t repel your garage’s humidity and temperature problems. Just like cloth coverings, the cords on vinyl window treatments will immediately soak up excess moisture and become sticky or frayed.  Garage heat and humidity can even warp the slats! Eventually those vinyl blinds can lose slats or break a cord, making it look unhinged on one side. Now you shed all curb appeal with your garage looking like a hurricane has destroyed the window treatments.
