A sunroom that is comfortable and light is often the best room in your St. George house. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect space to sit down with your favorite book, enjoy a cup of coffee, or entertain guests.
To turn your sunroom into the best spot in your home, it’s important to control the level of light during the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You may even need to redecorate it. A great place to begin is with your windows and window treatments. Look for a window treatment that provides a view of outside and lets in the natural light but also allows you to cover your windows for privacy and energy efficiency.
The window treatment product you choose depends on your energy efficiency needs, your style, and your budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in St. George to make your sunroom the best room in your home.
Classic Plantation Shutters
are a classic window treatment that lets the sun’s light stream into your sunroom. They are a customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your home and can increase the value of your home. Their wide louvers offer a pleasant outside view when they’re opened. They’re easy to adjust for light control and privacy - and simple to clean. They can swing out when you wish to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze.
Sunrooms have a lot windows which means you get a great view of the outdoors. But all that glass means that your sunroom usually isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters provide extra insulation your sunroom. They are up to 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters and reduce heat transfer by 45%, so you can have the sun shine into your sunroom during the day and close your shutters when it’s night to maintain the temperature of the room.
UV-Blocking Window Film
Window film offers a full view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while letting natural light come into the sunroom. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy so you’re able to keep your sunroom at the perfect temperature. Plus, it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which lowers your energy bills.
Window film also protects your carpeting and furniture. The direct sunlight that comes through windows can discolor and fade your furnishings and carpeting. But window film prevents fading so that your furniture and carpet stay true to its colors. You can add options like privacy tinting to window film which lets you see outside but prevents your neighbors from peering into your sunroom. You can also combine window film with other window treatments such as shades or plantation shutters for increased energy efficiency.
Decorative Roman Shades
Another sunroom window treatment that allows you to control the light levels in the room is roman shades. They are offered in dozens of fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles including contemporary, traditional, and modern.
Pull down the shades when you want less natural light and more privacy. Pull them up when you would like a room with lots of light where you can see outdoors. Options you can add include privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If you’re looking to improve energy efficiency, it’s important to pick shades constructed from the right material. Shades that are crafted from denser material will offer more insulation than lighter shades.
