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 in your sunroom and can increase your home’s value. Their wide louvers offer a pleasant view of the outdoors when 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 breeze, just swing out your plantation shutters.

Sunrooms have a lot windows which give you a nice view of your yard. But with all the glass, your sunroom might not be 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%, so you can enjoy the sun shining through your sunroom in the daytime and close your shutters at night to maintain the room’s temperature.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film offers a full view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while still letting natural light pass through into the room. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy, allowing you to keep your sunroom at the perfect temperature. And it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which saves money on your energy bills.

Window film also keeps your carpeting and furniture pristine. The sunlight that beats through your windows can discolor and fade your carpeting or furniture. But window film prevents 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 onlookers from seeing into your sunroom. You can also add 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 control the light levels in the room. They come in a large selection of patterns and fabrics and a variety of styles including contemporary, traditional, and modern.

Pull down the shades when you want 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 want to increase energy efficiency, it’s important to pick shades built from the right material. Shades that are made from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
