Nobody wants to spend their time cleaning window shades. Afterall who picks hours of cleaning over time spent relaxing or with family or relaxing with family? So, choose wisely when installing new window treatments and save yourself hours of future drudgery by purchasing window treatments that are easy to clean and maintain. And don’t think just because a shade is easy to clean that it can’t also be chic, stylish, and packed with design-forward features. Hunter Douglas makes several lines and styles of window treatments that are easy to clean and yet also have state-of-the-art designs and contemporary aesthetics that are at home in modern or traditional décor.
With hard, impenetrable surfaces the louvers of plantation shutters are easy to clean as routine maintenance requires only dusting. Additionally, shutters are sturdy so they can also be cleaned with the brush attachment on vacuums for easy and fast cleaning.
Cellular shades are a soft treatment but they have a sculpted form in order to hold their honeycomb shape, which is key for their patented insulating properties. Many cellular shades have anti-static properties which make them less than hospitable for dust and therefore easier to clean as there’s less actual cleaning to do.
Dust doesn’t fall on vertical surfaces, which is why vertical blinds qualify as window treatments that are easy to clean. Like with cellular shades if there’s less cleaning to actually do, it’s a quicker and easier chore to do. Additionally, many styles of vertical blinds have vanes that can be individually detached for cleaning while the rest of the blind remains intact, installed, and fully functionally.
Like shutters, Venetian blinds are easy to clean as the hard slats are largely impenetrable to grime, and dust collected on their horizontal slats can be easily removed by dusting. Aluminum blinds are especially stain-resistant, and at a cost-friendly price point they are some of the most affordable window treatments that are easy to clean.
With a minimalistic profile roller shades can be classified as window treatments that are easy to clean because their design creates a vertical fabric surface that dust fails to cling to, and enhanced fabrics are available for this style of window treatment that have stain-resistant properties.
One way an otherwise pristine looking window treatment can start showing its age is in the pull cord whose constant contact with hands and prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause yellowing. Avoid this clashing faux pas for opting for cordless operating systems like wand control for blinds or motorization through PowerView® Automation.
