July 12, 2016

A sunroom that is cozy and light 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 a good book, drink a cup of coffee, or entertain family and friends.

To make your sunroom become the most popular room in your house, you should control the level of light during the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You may even choose to redecorate it. A good place to start is with your windows and window treatments. Look for a window treatment that lets in the natural light and provides a view of outside but also can cover your windows for energy efficiency and privacy.

The specific style of window treatment you pick depends on your style, energy needs, and budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Miami to make your sunroom the most used room in your house.

Classic Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets 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 large louvers provide 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 wish to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze.

Sunrooms have a lot windows which offer a nice view of outside. But that much glass means that your sunroom might not be energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters provide extra insulation your sunroom. They are up to 70% more energy efficient than regular wooden shutters and reduce heat transfer by 45%, so you can enjoy the sun shining through your sunroom in the daytime and shut your shutters at night to maintain the temperature of the room.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film offers a full view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s harmful 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 fade and discolor your carpeting or furniture. But windows with window film reduce fading so that your carpet and furniture stay true to its colors. You can add options like privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but your neighbors can’t peer into your sunroom. You can also pair window film with other window treatments such as plantation shutters or shades for increased 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 come in a large selection of patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles including modern, classic, and contemporary.

Pull the shades down when you would like privacy and less natural light. Pull them back up when you want a bright, sunlit 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 built from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
