A sunroom that is light and airy can become the best room in your New Brunswick house. Its large windows and generous natural light make it the perfect place to relax with your latest novel, drink a cup of coffee, or entertain guests.
To turn your sunroom into the go-to space in your home, it’s important to control for light throughout the day and keep the room temperature comfortable. You might even want to redecorate the space. A good place to begin is with your window treatments. Choose a window treatment that lets the natural light in and provides a view of outside but also allows you to cover your windows for privacy and energy efficiency.
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 New Brunswick to make your sunroom the most popular 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. Plantation shutters are a custom window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your sunroom and can increase your home’s value. Their big louvers give you a beautiful view of the outdoors when they’re opened. They’re easy to adjust for light control and privacy - and easy to clean. If you would like to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze, just swing out your plantation shutters.
Sunrooms have many windows which means you get a great 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 by 45%. This makes it so you can have the sun shine into your sunroom during the day and close your shutters when it’s night to maintain the room’s temperature.
UV-Blocking Window Film
Window film gives you a completely open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while letting natural light pass through into the room. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy so you can keep your sunroom at the most comfortable temperature. Plus, it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which reduces your utility bills.
Window film also keeps your furniture and carpeting looking their best. The sunlight that beats through your windows can discolor and fade your furniture and carpeting. But windows that have window film prevent fading so that your carpet and furnishings stay true to its colors. You can add options such as privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but others can’t look into your sunroom. You can also combine window film with other window treatments like shades or plantation shutters for increased energy efficiency.
Decorative Roman Shades
Roman shades are another sunroom window treatment that allows you to easily control the light levels in the room. They are available in a large selection of fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles like modern, classic, and contemporary.
Pull the shades down when you need privacy and less light. Retract the shades when you want a bright, sunlit room where you can see outside. You can add options such as 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 made from heavier material will offer more insulation than lighter shades.
