Your sunroom is a great place to prop up your feet. But once in a while you might want time away from the sun. With all those windows, selecting suitable 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 of Richmond make it simple to elevate your residence. Here are our four favorite window treatments for sunrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are the leading standard for just about any space in your house. These permanent window treatments provide the best in light management, fresh air control and timeless fashion. Because they’re made with energy efficiency in mind, they’re ideal for keeping your sunroom comfortable, even on the warmest days.
Our LouverWood® plantation shutters are outstanding for sunrooms since they’re made from an exclusive synthetic made to endure bright sunlight. All with no warping, yellowing or cracking. Since this material insulates up to three times better than wood, it helps keep heat outside where it should be.
Your sunroom is a special part of your house where off-the-shelf window treatments just won’t measure up. At Louver Shop of Richmond, our custom shutters are made to work with your home, so you’ll be able to customize the louver width, stain and more. Specialty windows aren’t an issue because we’ve never met a window that we couldn’t cover.
2. Honeycomb Shades
Looking for the look 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 main sources of energy loss in your home, these soft shades reduce that loss with pockets that trap air at the windows.
The highest quality ones, such as Duette® honeycomb shades, come with more than one layers. Duette shades are built with up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air chambers through a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design.
Because of free, expert help from your Louver Shop of Richmond design consultant, creating custom shades is fast. You’ll be able to choose fabrics and colors that complement your house, alongside operating systems to make your life a little bit simpler. This encompasses top-down/bottom-up arrangements to customize privacy and light, in addition to the PowerView® smart operating system, which you can adjust and schedule from your phone. If your sunroom has skylights, SkyLift™ makes it uncomplicated to move your shades with PowerView or a telescoping pole.
3. Roman Shades
Looking for the softness of draperies but don’t like struggling with hard-to-move curtains? Roman shades will be a fantastic addition to your sunroom. These fabric shades stay flat when closed and some types stack into neat pleats when moved.
For a modern sunroom, there’s Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. These shades don’t come with any dangling rear cords, giving them a uncluttered style. 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 list, Vignette Architella® comes with an additional air-trapping chamber for more insulation. Or, if you’re needing 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 offer you more control over sunshine.
4. Roller and Solar Shades
When only the cleanest appearance will do, there’s roller and solar shades. With a complete range of fabrics and colors available, you’ll have better control over heightened opacity or more natural light.
The surroundings outside your sunroom is exceptional. Highlight it even when shut with the help of our Designer Screen Shades. These shades still give you the ability to enjoy your surroundings while defending against at least 75% of dangerous UV rays, which can discolor furniture, flooring and artwork.
Or, when you’re after a unique 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 significantly limits light leaks when you are looking for shade.
