Your sunroom is a great place to relax. But every so often you might be seeking time away from the sunlight. With all those windows, choosing appropriate window treatments can seem like a hassle, even more so if your sunroom has its own 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 Louisiana make it fast to elevate your home. Here are our four most loved window treatments for sunrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are the gold standard for just about any room in your home. These permanent window treatments offer the best in light management, fresh air control and timeless style. As they’re designed with energy efficiency in mind, they’re ideal for keeping your sunroom comfy, even on the most warm days.
Our LouverWood® plantation shutters are great for sunrooms as they’re made from an exclusive synthetic made to withstand bright sunlight. All without warping, yellowing or cracking. Because this material insulates up to three times better than wood, it helps keep warmth outside where it belongs.
Your sunroom is a special part of your house where premade window treatments just won’t measure up. At Louver Shop of Louisiana, our custom shutters are crafted to fit your residence, so you’ll be able to choose the louver width, paint and more. Specialty windows aren’t an issue since we’ve never met a window that we couldn’t work with.
2. Honeycomb Shades
Want the appearance of light-filtering shades but don’t want to settle for less energy efficiency? Honeycomb shades are a great solution for your sunroom. As your windows are one of the leading sources of energy loss in your home, these soft shades reduce that loss with cavities that hold on to air at the windows.
The leading quality ones, such as Duette® honeycomb shades, have many layers. Duette shades are constructed with up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets through a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb style.
Thanks to free, expert help from your Louver Shop of Louisiana design consultant, designing custom shades is easy. You’ll be able to choose fabrics and colors that complement your house, in addition to operating systems to make your life a little bit simpler. This includes top-down/bottom-up layouts to customize privacy and light, as well as the PowerView® smart operating system, which you can control and schedule from your phone. If your sunroom has skylights, SkyLift™ makes it simple to move your shades with PowerView or a telescoping pole.
3. Roman Shades
Want the softness of draperies but don’t like struggling with hard-to-move curtains? Roman shades will be a great addition to your sunroom. These fabric shades remain flat when shut and some styles stack into tidy pleats when moved.
For a modern sunroom, there’s Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. These shades don’t come with any exposed rear cords, giving them a crisp style. You’ll be able to completely customize your shades with a full variety of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
If energy efficiency is high up on your must-have options, Vignette Architella® comes with an additional air-trapping chamber for greater insulation. Or, if you’re needing room-darkening capabilities so you can play a movie, Duolite® uses a light-filtering or sheer front shade with a built-in, room-darkening panel to give you more control over sunshine.
4. Roller and Solar Shades
When only the most minimal look will do, there’s roller and solar shades. With a wide range of fabrics and colors available, you’ll have increased control over increased opacity or added natural light.
The surroundings outside your sunroom is one-of-a-kind. Highlight it even when closed with the help of our Designer Screen Shades. These shades still give you the option to view your backyard while defending against at least 75% of damaging UV rays, which can wash out furniture, flooring and artwork.
Or, when you’re looking for a special appearance for your sunroom, there’s Designer Roller Shades that are customizable in more than 300 designer fabrics. With the patented Custom Clutch operating system, your shades will fit tightly against the windowpane, which considerably limits light leaks when you are seeking less sun.
