window treatments for allergy sufferers

Are your allergies getting worse as spring gets closer? Are you looking for ways to improve your home’s air quality and comfort? If you suffer from allergies, we have gathered the best window treatments for allergy sufferers and how to clean them properly. These options will help you breathe easier in your home! 

Faux Wood Blinds

For a sturdy window treatment that offers the beautiful appearance of wood blinds with the practicality and resilience of modern materials, we suggest the Hunter Douglas Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds. These faux wood blinds are one of the best window treatments for allergies because they can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth or lightly dusted to remove allergens. The Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds resist fading, yellowing, warping, or bowing, which ensures that they withstand the test of time and makes them an excellent choice if you’re suffering this allergy season!


Similar to wood blinds, wood shutters are a fantastic window treatment solution if you suffer from allergies. Due to their hard material, they’re easier to clean with a damp microfiber cloth. Hard window treatments, such as those made out of wood, attract and hold onto less dust than soft ones, making shutters an outstanding choice to avoid and minimize allergens in your home. In addition, shutters are the perfect solution for specialty-shaped windows such as arches or rakes.

Roller Shades

We recommend the Hunter Douglas Roller Shades for a clean, minimalist design. Roller shades are an excellent choice due to their ability to roll up into themselves, leaving almost no material left for dust and allergens to settle on. Dirt and dust don’t have the chance to collect and sit on your shades for long periods. On top of that, their flat construction allows for simple cleaning with a vacuum cleaner.

With these easy-to-maintain window treatment options, you can lessen your allergy symptoms and breathe easier in your home! If you’re looking for new window treatments to help the allergy sufferers in your family, we’d love to help – schedule a design consultation today.
