Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In Orlando07/12/2016Todd Hansen A sunroom that is airy and comfortable can turn into the most popular room in your Orlando home. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect space to entertain guests, complete a crossword puzzle, or view a summer storm. To turn your sunroom into the best space in your home, you need to control how much light comes in during the day and make sure it’s not too hot or cold. You may even need to redecorate your sunroom. An easy place to start is with your windows and window treatments. Choose a window treatment that gives you a view of outside and lets in the natural light but also allows you to cover your windows for privacy and energy efficiency. The type of window treatment you buy depends on your energy efficiency needs, your style, and your budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Orlando to make your sunroom the most popular room in the house. Classic Plantation Shutters A classic window treatment option is plantation shutters which let the light stream into your sunroom. Plantation shutters are a customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture and can increase the value of your home. Their big louvers provide a pretty view of the outdoors when they’re opened. It’s easy to adjust them for privacy and light control - and they’re simple to clean. They can swing out if you want to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze. Sunrooms have lots of windows which offer a nice view of outside. But that much glass means that your sunroom might not be energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters help insulate your sunroom. They are up to 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters and reduce heat transfer by 45%. This makes it so you can open your shutters during the day to let in the sunlight and shut your shutters at night to maintain the temperature of the room. UV-Blocking Window Film Window film gives you a full view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while allowing natural light to come into the room. Window film both reflects and absorbs the sun’s energy so you’re able to keep your sunroom at the best temperature. Plus, it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which lowers your energy bills. Window film also protects your carpeting and furniture. The sunlight that beats through your windows can fade and discolor your furniture and carpeting. But window film prevents fading so that your furniture and carpet retain its vibrant colors. You can add options like privacy tinting to window film which lets you see outside but prevents others from peering into your sunroom. You can also pair window film with other window treatments such as shades or plantation shutters for extra energy efficiency. Decorative Roman Shades Another sunroom window treatment that helps you control the light levels in the room is roman shades. They are offered in many patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles like classic, contemporary, and modern. Pull down the shades when you need privacy and less natural light. Retract the shades when you want a bright, sunlit room and a view of the outdoors. Options you can add include decorative scallops and trims, privacy liners, and cordless lift systems and motorization. If you’re looking to improve energy efficiency, it’s important to pick shades made from the right material. Shades that are built from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
