If you want to make it easier to find the motivation to get your workout in, you need to make your home gym a place you want to be. To do that, you need to make sure it has the right kind of window treatments. Use this list of window coverings, like motorized shades, for your home gym as inspiration:
- Motorized Shades Give Natural Light and Privacy – Motorized shades are a great window treatment option for home gyms as they provide both natural light and privacy. You can use sheer roller shades for lots of natural light that keeps your gym free from outside eyes. Or, if your gym gets lots of direct sunlight or faces the street, you can block out both the heat and your neighborhood’s gaze with blackout shades. Cordless models are also ideal for gyms as there’s no risk of cords getting tangled in your equipment, and motorized shades are perfect for adjusting the shades when you’re in the middle of a workout and don’t want to pause. Top and bottom shades are for you if you want the best of both worlds as these models allow you to adjust the top and bottom shades independently for even more personalized light and privacy control.
- Woven Shades Create a Sophisticated Look – If you want your gym to be elegant, stylish, and Zen-like a fancy spa or hotel gym, woven shades are the right choice. Woven shades stand out from other window treatments because the woven fibers interact with the sunlight and give warmth to a room in a unique way. They also add a hint of natural or modern texture to home gyms that are otherwise full of smooth, shiny surfaces. You also don’t have to sacrifice privacy for this elegance as woven shades come in a range of thicknesses and opacities that let you customize how much light and privacy you get.
- Window Shutters Offer Flexibility – Is your home gym also your spare bedroom/office/playroom/or any other kind of space? If so, you need to make sure its window treatments have enough versatility to suit every use. Shutters are the answer. These window treatments work in every kind of room, especially when you choose some in neutral shades that fit seamlessly into décor. What’s more, shutters make it easy to control the amount of privacy and light you want. You can pull open the shutters and louvers if you want bright morning light to pump you up for your workout, but you can also close them fully if you want total darkness for a Zen yoga moment or privacy for a stretch session. You can also close the panels and tilt open the louvers for filtered light that helps redirect glare away from reflective surfaces in your home gym like mirrors or TVs.
