Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In Sacramento

Curtis Orton

A sunroom that is cozy and light can turn into the most popular room in your Sacramento house. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect room to relax with a good book, savor a cup of coffee, or entertain family and friends.

If you want your sunroom to become the most popular spot in your house, you need to control how much light comes in during the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You might even choose to redecorate the space. A good place to start is with your windows and window treatments. Choose a window treatment that gives you a view of outside and lets in the natural light but also will cover your windows for energy efficiency and privacy.

The specific type of window treatment you choose depends on your energy needs, your budget, and your style. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Sacramento to turn your sunroom into the most popular space in your home.

Classic Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets sunlight stream into your sunroom. Plantation shutters are a custom-built window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your home and can increase the value of your home. Their wide louvers give you a pretty view of the outdoors when they’re opened. It’s easy to tilt them and adjust for light control and privacy - and they’re simple to clean. They can swing out when you want to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze.

Sunrooms have many windows which offer a great view of outside. But with all the glass, your sunroom often 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 normal wooden shutters. This makes it so you can enjoy the sun shining through your sunroom in the daytime and shut your shutters at night to maintain the room’s temperature.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film gives you a full view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while still letting natural light come into the sunroom. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy, allowing you to keep your sunroom at the most comfortable temperature. It also makes your HVAC system work less, which saves money on your energy costs.

Window film also protects your furniture and carpeting. The sunlight that beats through your windows can fade and discolor your furniture and carpeting. But window film prevents fading so that your carpet and furnishings retain its vibrant colors. You can add privacy tinting to window film which lets you see outside but prevents your neighbors from peering into your sunroom. You can also combine window film with other window treatments including plantation shutters or shades for increased energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Another sunroom window treatment that helps you control for light is roman shades. They are offered in many fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles including contemporary, traditional, and modern.

Pull the shades down when you need less natural light and more privacy. Retract the shades when you would like a bright 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 choose shades built from the right material. Shades that are made from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
