Most people have a sunroom to bring the outside in, no matter the weather conditions. They use it as a place to relax with a cup of coffee in the morning or entertain friends and family at night. If that’s the case for you, when you search for the best window treatments, you want to select one that allows light to filter in, yet creates a seal during the winter. You will also want to protect your sunroom furniture and flooring from fading by protecting them from harmful UV rays. We have several options for sunroom window treatments here at Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark area.
Sunroom Window Treatment Options
Hunter Douglas, the leader in window treatments, offers a wide variety of solutions to achieve the look and functionality you desire. Solar and roller shades are the most popular window treatments for sunrooms. They come in a wide variety of styles, textures, and colors, so you’ll be sure to match your home’s décor. Plus, they offer excellent UV protection. Because of their low profile, the shade blends into a room using minimal window space.
Here are the main differences between the two:
- Roller shades – Come in both light-filtering and blackout materials and offer optional trims at the bottom of the shade so you can coordinate with any décor.
- Solar shades – Come in a variety of weaves. They preserve the view by helping block out direct sunlight and glare simultaneously. They do however, allow people to see in at night, so, if security is an issue, you might consider a light-filtering roller shade or adding drapery that you can close when needed.
Two other options for sunrooms are poly shutters and faux wood blinds. Both can withstand moisture and offer more control over direct sunlight and privacy.
- Hunter Douglas EverWood® Renditions™ Wood Blinds offer white and faux wood-grain finishes and are ideal for rooms with heat and humidity. They can be tilted or raised to meet your sun and privacy requirements.
- Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Plantation Shutters are constructed with UV-resistant polysatin compound. They are guaranteed never to peel, warp, chip, crack, discolor, or fade, regardless of moisture or heat.
For Success in Finding Sunroom Window Treatments
Follow these steps:
First, research. The Internet is great for finding products and ideas. Sites like Pinterest.com and Houzz.com are good places to start.
Second, find a respected window treatment specialist. You’ll want to work with one who will walk you through your options and ensure that your new window treatments meet your needs, lifestyle, and—don’t forget—budget. Working with a local dealer will provide you peace of mind because they will be there to help you with any issues long after your window treatments have been installed.
Third, have a budget in mind. When you meet with your design consultant, share your budget info. There are hundreds of styles and options for window treatments, and having a budget set will save you time and provide a much more enjoyable shopping experience.
