Your sunroom is a great place to prop up your feet. But every so often you might need time away from the sunshine. With all those windows, selecting the right window treatments can seem like a hassle, especially if your sunroom has its own needs, including UV protection or energy efficiency.
From free, in-home design consultations to free standard installation, the window treatment designers at Louver Shop of Western Carolina make it easy to elevate your house. Here are our four top window treatments for sunrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are the leading standard for just about any room in your house. These permanent window treatments deliver the ultimate in light management, fresh air control and timeless fashion. Because they’re constructed with energy efficiency in mind, they’re fantastic for keeping your sunroom comfy, even on the hottest days.
Our LouverWood® plantation shutters are great for sunrooms because they’re made from a premium synthetic designed to stand up to strong sunlight. All without warping, yellowing or cracking. Since this material insulates up to three times better than wood, it helps keep high tempatures outside where it belongs.
Your sunroom is a special part of your home where ready-made window treatments just won’t cut it. At Louver Shop of Western Carolina, our custom shutters are produced to match your residence, so you’ll be able to choose the louver width, paint and more. Specialty windows aren’t a problem as we’ve never encountered a window that we couldn’t cover.
2. Honeycomb Shades
Looking for the style of light-filtering shades but don’t want to accept less energy efficiency? Honeycomb shades are a fantastic solution for your sunroom. As your windows are one of the top sources of energy loss in your house, these soft shades decrease that loss with chambers that retain air at the windows.
The top quality ones, including Duette® honeycomb shades, come with more than one layers. Duette shades are constructed with up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets through a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb style.
Because of free, knowledgeable support from your Louver Shop of Western Carolina design consultant, creating custom shades is fast. You’ll be able to pick fabrics and colors that complement your house, plus operating systems to make your life a little bit simpler. This involves top-down/bottom-up layouts to customize privacy and light, as well as the PowerView® smart operating system, which you can move and schedule from your phone. If your sunroom has skylights, SkyLift™ makes it simple to adjust your shades with PowerView or a telescoping pole.
3. Roman Shades
Want the softness of draperies but hate struggling with unruly curtains? Roman shades will be a great addition to your sunroom. These fabric shades lay flat when drawn and some types stack into neat pleats when raised.
For a contemporary sunroom, there’s Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. These shades don’t have any rear cords that show, giving them a uncluttered appearance. You’ll be able to totally 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 features, Vignette Architella® has an additional air-trapping chamber for greater insulation. Or, if you’re needing room-darkening capabilities so you can play a movie, Duolite® uses a light-filtering or sheer front shade with a built-in, room-darkening panel to offer you more control over sunshine.
4. Roller and Solar Shades
When only the crispest appearance will do, there’s roller and solar shades. With a full range of fabrics and colors to select from, you’ll have increased control over elevated opacity or more daylight.
The view outside your sunroom is one-of-a-kind. Draw attention to it even when shut with the help of our Designer Screen Shades. These shades still give you the ability to enjoy your backyard while protecting you from at least 75% of damaging UV rays, which can bleach furniture, flooring and artwork.
Or, when you’re looking for a special appearance for your sunroom, there’s Designer Roller Shades that are available in more than 300 designer fabrics. With the patented Custom Clutch operating system, your shades will fit securely against the windowpane, which greatly limits light leaks when you need shade.
