Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In Denver

July 12, 2016

A sunroom that is cozy and light can turn into the most popular room in your Denver home. Since it has large windows and lots of light, it’s the perfect space to entertain guests, complete a crossword puzzle, or watch a summer storm.

If you want your sunroom to become the go-to spot in your home, 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 If your sunroom is outdated or not your style, you may even choose to redecorate your sunroom. A good place to start 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 privacy and energy efficiency.

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 best 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 custom window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your sunroom 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 nice view of outside. But that much glass means that your sunroom often isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters insulate 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 close your shutters at night to maintain the temperature of the room.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film provides a full view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays while letting natural light pass through into the room. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy so you’re able to keep your sunroom at the perfect temperature. It also makes your HVAC system work less, which saves money on your energy costs.

Window film also protects your carpeting and furnishings. The direct sunlight that passes through your windows can discolor and fade your furnishings and carpeting. But window film minimizes 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 pair 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 for light. They are offered in many patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles like contemporary, traditional, and modern.

Pull the shades down to the bottom when you need less natural light and more privacy. Pull them back up when you want a bright, sunlit room where you can see outside. You can add options such as decorative scallops and trims, privacy liners, and cordless lift systems and motorization. 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.
