Your sunroom is a wonderful place to prop up your feet. But once in a while you might be seeking time away from the sun. With all those windows, finding the right window treatments can appear overwhelming, especially if your sunroom has special 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 Boston make it easy to elevate your house. 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 finest in light management, fresh air control and lifelong stylishness. As they’re built with energy efficiency in mind, they’re great for keeping your sunroom cool, even on the hottest days.
Our LouverWood® plantation shutters are great for sunrooms since they’re made from an exclusive synthetic made to endure harsh 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 house where off-the-shelf window treatments just won’t do. At Louver Shop of Boston, our custom shutters are crafted to match your residence, so you’ll be able to select the louver size, paint and more. Specialty windows aren’t an issue since we’ve never come across a window that we couldn’t cover.
2. Honeycomb Shades
Want the look of light-filtering shades but don’t want to accept less energy efficiency? Honeycomb shades are a great option for your sunroom. Since 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, like Duette® honeycomb shades, have many layers. Duette shades are constructed with up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air cavities through a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb style.
As a result of free, knowledgeable help from your Louver Shop of Boston design professional, making custom shades is fast. You’ll be able to select fabrics and colors that fit your house, in addition to 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 adjust and schedule from your phone. If your sunroom has skylights, SkyLift™ makes it simple to move your shades with PowerView or a telescoping pole.
3. Roman Shades
Want the softness of draperies but don’t want to struggle with unruly curtains? Roman shades will be a fantastic addition to your sunroom. These fabric shades stay flat when shut and some styles stack into orderly 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 clean look. You’ll be able to totally customize your shades with a wide collection of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
If energy efficiency is topping your must-have options, Vignette Architella® includes an added air-trapping pocket for greater insulation. Or, if you’re seeking 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 give you more control over daylight.
4. Roller and Solar Shades
When only the crispest look 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 natural light.
The area 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 option to enjoy your environment while protecting you from at least 75% of damaging UV rays, which can discolor furniture, flooring and artwork.
Or, when you’re seeking a eye-catching style for your sunroom, there’s Designer Roller Shades that come in more than 300 designer fabrics. With the patented Custom Clutch operating system, your shades will fit tightly against the windowpane, which greatly limits light leaks when you need less sun.
