Your sunroom is a wonderful place to kick back. But once in a while you might be seeking time off from the sunshine. With all those windows, finding the right window treatments can appear overwhelming, especially if your sunroom has special needs, such as 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 best in light management, fresh air control and lifelong stylishness. Since they’re built 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 since they’re made from a premium synthetic made to endure bright 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 cut it. At Louver Shop of Boston, our custom shutters are produced to work with 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 residence, these soft shades reduce 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 chambers through a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb style.
As a result of free, knowledgeable support from your Louver Shop of Boston design pro, designing custom shades is simple. You’ll be able to pick fabrics and colors that fit your house, alongside 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 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 don’t want to struggle with unruly curtains? Roman shades will be a fantastic addition to your sunroom. These fabric shades remain flat when shut and some styles stack into tidy pleats when raised.
For a contemporary sunroom, there’s Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. These shades don’t have any dangling rear cords, giving them a clean look. You’ll be able to totally customize your shades with a broad collection of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
If energy efficiency is high up on your must-have options, Vignette Architella® comes with an additional air-trapping pocket for better 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 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 surroundings outside your sunroom is one-of-a-kind. Highlight it even when shut with the help of our Designer Screen Shades. These shades still give you the option to enjoy your backyard while protecting you from at least 75% of dangerous UV rays, which can discolor furniture, flooring and artwork.
Or, when you’re after a eye-catching appearance 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.
