Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In St. George

Kasey Udy

A sunroom that is comfortable and light can become the best room in your St. George house. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect room to entertain family and friends, relax with a crossword puzzle, or watch a summer storm.

To turn your sunroom into the best spot in your home, it’s important to control for light throughout the day and maintain a steady room temperature. If your sunroom is outdated or not your style, you may even need to redecorate your sunroom. A great place to begin is with your windows and window treatments. Look for a window treatment that gives you a view of outside and lets in the natural light but also allows you to cover your windows for energy efficiency and privacy.

The window treatment product you choose depends on your style, energy needs, and budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in St. George to turn your sunroom into the best space in your home.

Classic Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets the sun’s light stream into your sunroom. They are a custom 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. It’s easy to tilt them for light control and privacy - and they’re simple to clean. They can swing out when you wish to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze.

Sunrooms have lots of windows which give you a great view of the outdoors. But all that glass means that your sunroom usually isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters insulate 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 completely open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while still letting natural light stream into the sunroom. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy, allowing you to keep your sunroom at the best temperature. Plus, it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which lowers your energy bills.

Window film also protects your furniture and carpeting. The direct sunlight that comes through windows can discolor and fade your furnishings and carpeting. But window film prevents fading so that your carpet and furniture stay true to its colors. You can add options like privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but your neighbors can’t peer 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

Roman shades are another sunroom window treatment that allows you to control how much light comes into the room. They are offered in dozens of fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles such as contemporary, traditional, and modern.

Pull down the shades when you want privacy and less light. Pull them up when you would like a room with lots of light and a view of the outdoors. Options you can add include decorative scallops and trims, privacy liners, and cordless lift systems and motorization. If you want to increase 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.
