Window Treatment Ideas For Sunrooms In Atlanta

Dan Taylor

A sunroom that is light and airy can turn into the best room in your Atlanta house. Since it has large windows and lots of light, it’s the perfect place to entertain family and friends, relax with a crossword puzzle, or view a summer storm.

If you want your sunroom to become the best space in your home, 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 If your sunroom is outdated or not your style, you may even need to redecorate it. A good place to start is with your window treatments. Look for a window treatment that lets the natural light in and offers an outside view but also can cover your windows for privacy, energy efficiency, and light control.

The style of window treatment you pick depends on your energy efficiency needs, your style, and your budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Atlanta to make your sunroom the most popular room 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 and can add to the value of your home. Their big louvers offer a pretty view of outside when opened. It’s easy to adjust them for light control and privacy - and they’re simple to clean. If you would like to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze, simply swing out your plantation shutters.

Sunrooms have lots of windows which offer a nice view of outside. 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 traditional wooden shutters and reduce heat transfer by 45%, so you can enjoy the sun shining through your sunroom in the daytime and shut 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 UV rays while letting natural light come into the room. Window film both reflects and absorbs the sun’s energy so that you can keep your sunroom at the perfect temperature. It also reduces the stress on your HVAC system, which lowers your energy bills.

Window film also keeps your carpeting and furniture pristine. The direct sunlight that comes through windows can fade and discolor your carpeting or furniture. But windows that have window film prevent fading so that your carpet and furnishings stay true to its colors. You can add privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but onlookers can’t see into your sunroom. You can also combine window film with other window treatments like shades or plantation shutters for additional energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Another sunroom window treatment that allows you to easily control for light is roman shades. They come in a large selection of patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles such as contemporary, traditional, and modern.

Pull the shades down to the bottom when you would like less natural light and more privacy. Pull them up when you want a room with lots of light and a view of the outdoors. You can add options such as privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If you want to increase energy efficiency, it’s important to buy shades constructed from the right material. Shades that are made from denser material will offer more insulation than lighter shades.
