Window Treatment Ideas For Sunrooms In Miami07/12/2016David White A sunroom that is light and airy is often the best room in your Miami home. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect spot to relax with your latest novel, drink a cup of coffee, or entertain guests. If you want your sunroom to become the most popular space in your house, you should control for light throughout the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You may even choose to redecorate it. A good thing to start with is with your windows and window treatments. Look for a window treatment that lets in the natural light and gives you a view of outside but also can cover your windows for energy efficiency and privacy. The specific style 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 Miami to make your sunroom the most used space in your house. Classic Plantation Shutters Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets sunlight stream into your sunroom. Plantation shutters are a custom window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture and can increase the value of your home. Their big louvers give you a pretty outside view when they’re opened. It’s easy to tilt them for light control and privacy - and they’re easy to clean. They can swing out when you want to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze. Sunrooms have a lot windows which offer a great view of outside. But that much glass means that your sunroom might not be energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters insulate your sunroom. They are up to 70% more energy efficient than regular wooden shutters and reduce heat transfer by 45%, so you can have the sun shine into your sunroom during the day and shut your shutters in the evening to maintain the temperature of the room. UV-Blocking Window Film Window film offers a completely open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays while allowing natural light to pass through into the room. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy so that you can keep your sunroom at the perfect temperature. It also reduces the stress on your HVAC system, which lowers your utility bills. Window film also protects your carpeting and furnishings. The direct sunlight that comes through windows can discolor and fade your furniture and carpeting. But windows with window film reduce fading so that your furniture and carpet retain its vibrant colors. You can add options such as privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but onlookers can’t peer into your sunroom. You can also pair window film with other window treatments such as plantation shutters or shades for extra energy efficiency. Decorative Roman Shades Another sunroom window treatment that allows you to easily control how much light comes into the room is roman shades. They are available in many patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles such as modern, classic, and contemporary. Pull down the shades when you would like privacy and less natural light. Pull them back up when you want a bright room where you can see outdoors. Additional options include: privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If you want to increase energy efficiency, it’s important to choose shades made from the right material. Shades that are made from thicker material will insulate better than lighter shades.
