Window Treatment Ideas For Sunrooms In Dallas07/12/2016Collins Jones A sunroom that is airy and comfortable is often the best room in your Dallas home. Its large windows and generous natural light make it the perfect room to entertain family and friends, finish a crossword puzzle, or view a summer storm. To turn your sunroom into the best space in your house, it’s important to control how much light comes in during the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You may even want to redecorate it. A good place to begin is with your window treatments. Choose a window treatment that gives you a view of outside and lets the natural light in but also will cover your windows for privacy, energy efficiency, and light control. The exact style of window treatment you purchase depends on your style, energy needs, and budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Dallas to make your sunroom the most used space in your house. Classic Plantation Shutters A classic window treatment option is plantation shutters which let the sun’s light stream into your sunroom. Plantation shutters are a customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture and can add to the value of your home. Their large louvers offer a pretty view of the outdoors when they’re opened. They’re easy to adjust for privacy and light control - and simple to clean. They can swing out if you would like to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze. Sunrooms have many windows which offer a nice view of your yard. But all that glass means that your sunroom often isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters help insulate your sunroom. They are up to 70% more energy efficient than regular wooden shutters and reduce heat transfer through your windows by 45%. This makes it so you can have the sun shine into your sunroom during the day and close your shutters in the evening to maintain the temperature of the room. UV-Blocking Window Film Window film gives you an open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays while still letting natural light come into the room. Window film both reflects and absorbs the sun’s energy, allowing you to keep your sunroom at the best temperature. Plus, it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which saves money on your utility bills. Window film also keeps your furniture and carpeting pristine. The sunlight that beats through your windows can discolor and fade your furniture and carpeting. But windows with window film reduce fading so that your furniture and carpet stay true to its colors. You can add options such as privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but onlookers can’t see 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 Roman shades are another sunroom window treatment that helps 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 such as classic, contemporary, 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 room with lots of light and a view of the outdoors. Additional options include: privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If you’re looking to improve energy efficiency, it’s important to buy shades made from the right material. Shades that are crafted from denser material will insulate better than lighter shades.
