Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In Gainesville

Eric Ramsey

A sunroom that is comfortable and light can turn into the most popular room in your Gainesville home. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect space to entertain guests, relax with a crossword puzzle, or view a summer storm.

To turn your sunroom into the most popular room in your house, it’s important to control how much light comes in during the day and keep the room temperature comfortable. If your sunroom is outdated or not your style, you may even want to redecorate the space. An easy place to start is with your window treatments. Choose a window treatment that lets in the natural light and provides a view of outside but also will cover your windows for energy efficiency and privacy.

The window treatment product you buy depends on your style, energy needs, and budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Gainesville to turn your sunroom into the most used room in your house.

Classic Plantation Shutters

A classic window treatment option is plantation shutters which let the sun’s light stream into your sunroom. They are a customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your home and can add to your home’s value. Their wide louvers give you a beautiful view of outside when opened. It’s easy to tilt them for privacy and light control - 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 many windows which means you get a nice view of the outdoors. But that much glass means that your sunroom usually 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 regular wooden shutters. This makes it so you can have the sun shine into your sunroom during the day 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 UV rays while allowing natural light to stream into the sunroom. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy so you can keep your sunroom at the most comfortable temperature. And it makes your HVAC system work less, which lowers your energy costs.

Window film also keeps your carpeting and furniture looking like new. The direct sunlight that comes through windows can discolor and fade your carpeting or furniture. But window film minimizes fading so that your carpet and furnishings retain its vibrant colors. You can add options such as privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but others can’t see into your sunroom. You can also add window film with other window treatments including shades or plantation shutters for increased energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Another sunroom window treatment that lets you easily control how much light comes into the room is roman shades. They are offered in a large selection of patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles such as modern, classic, and contemporary.

Pull down the shades when you need privacy and less light. Pull them back up when you would like a bright, sunlit room where you can see outdoors. You can add options like privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If energy efficiency is a priority, it’s important to buy shades made from the right material. Shades that are made from thicker material will insulate better than lighter shades.
