Your sunroom is a great place to relax. But every now and then you might need a break from the sunlight. With all those windows, finding the right window treatments can feel overwhelming, especially if your sunroom has special needs, like UV protection or energy efficiency.
From free, in-home design consultations to free standard installation, the window treatment pros at Louver Shop make it easy to elevate your home. Here are our four favorite window treatments for sunrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are the gold standard for just about any room in your house. These permanent window treatments offer the ultimate in light management, fresh air control and timeless style. This makes them ideal for keeping your sunroom cool and comfortable, even on the hottest days.
Our LouverWood® plantation shutters are great for sunrooms because they’re made from a modern synthetic designed to withstand strong sunlight. All without warping, yellowing or cracking. Because this material insulates up to three times better than wood, it helps keep heat outside where it belongs.
Your sunroom is a unique part of your home where off-the-shelf window treatments just won’t do. At Louver Shop, our custom shutters are made to fit your home, so you’ll be able to choose the louver size, finish and more. Specialty windows aren’t an issue because we’ve never met a window that we couldn’t cover.
2. Honeycomb Shades
Want the look of light-filtering shades but don’t want to compromise on energy efficiency? Honeycomb shades are a great solution for your sunroom. Since your windows are one of the main sources of energy loss in your home, these soft shades slow that loss with chambers that trap air at the windows.
The highest quality ones, like Duette® honeycomb shades, have multiple layers. Duette shades are built with up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets through a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design.
Thanks to free, expert assistance from your Louver Shop design consultant, creating custom shades is fast and easy. You’ll be able to choose fabrics and colors that complement your home, plus operating systems to make your life a little bit easier. This includes top-down/bottom-up configurations to customize privacy and light, as well as the PowerView® smart operating system, which you can control and schedule from your phone. If your sunroom has skylights, SkyLift™ makes it simple to control your shades with PowerView or a telescoping pole.
3. Roman Shades
Looking for the softness of draperies but don’t want to struggle with heavy curtains? Roman shades will be a fantastic addition to your sunroom. These fabric shades lay flat when closed and some styles stack into neat pleats when raised.
For a more contemporary sunroom, there’s Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. These shades don’t have any exposed rear cords, giving them a clean, crisp look. You’ll be able to fully customize your shades with a full collection of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
If energy efficiency is at the top of your must-have list, Vignette Architella® has an extra air-trapping pocket for added insulation. Or, if you’re looking for room-darkening capabilities so you can enjoy a movie, Duolite® uses a light-filtering or sheer front shade with a built-in room-darkening panel to give you more control over light.
4. Roller and Solar Shades
When only the cleanest look will do, there’s roller and solar shades. With a full range of fabrics and colors available, you’ll have greater control over increased opacity or more natural light.
The view outside your sunroom is one-of-a-kind. Show it off even when closed with the help of our Designer Screen Shades. These shades still allow you to enjoy your surroundings while protecting you from at least 75% of harmful UV rays, which can discolor furniture, flooring and artwork.
Or, when you’re looking for a unique look for your sunroom, there’s Designer Roller Shades that come in more than 300 designer fabrics. With the patented Custom Clutch operating system, yours shades will fit tightly against the windowpane, which greatly reduces light leaks when you need a break from the sun.
