Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In Denver

Gary Harding

A sunroom that is cozy and light can turn into the most popular room in your Denver home. Its large windows and generous natural light make it the perfect space to entertain guests, complete a crossword puzzle, or watch a summer storm.

To make your sunroom become the go-to spot in your house, you should control for light throughout the day and keep the room temperature comfortable. If your sunroom is outdated or not your style, you may even choose to redecorate it. A good thing to start with is with your window treatments. You’ll want to find 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 style of window treatment you choose depends on your energy needs, your budget, and your style. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Denver to turn your sunroom into the most popular spot in your home.

Classic Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets the sun’s light stream into your sunroom. They are a customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your home and can increase the value of your home. Their large louvers offer a pleasant view of outside when opened. It’s easy to tilt them and adjust for light control and privacy - and they’re a breeze to clean. They can swing out when you wish to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze.

Sunrooms have lots of windows which offer a great view of outside. But that much glass means that your sunroom often isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters provide extra insulation your sunroom. They reduce heat transfer through your windows by 45% and are up to 70% more energy efficient than normal wooden shutters. This makes it 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 gives you a completely open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays while still letting natural light pass through into the room. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy, allowing you to keep your sunroom at the best temperature. It also takes stress off of your HVAC system, which saves money on your energy costs.

Window film also protects your carpeting and furnishings. The direct sunlight that passes through your windows can fade and discolor your furnishings and carpeting. But window film prevents fading so that your furniture and carpet keep its colors. You can add privacy tinting to window film which lets you see outside but prevents others from seeing into your sunroom. You can also add window film with other window treatments like plantation shutters or shades for extra energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Roman shades are another sunroom window treatment that lets you control how much light comes into the room. They are offered in a large selection of patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles like contemporary, traditional, and modern.

Pull the shades down to the bottom when you want less natural light and more privacy. Pull them back up when you want a bright room where you can see outside. Options you can add include privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If energy efficiency is a priority, it’s important to pick shades constructed from the right material. Shades that are built from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
