Window Treatment Ideas For Sunrooms In Jacksonville

Kevin McCormack

A sunroom that is cozy and light is often the best room in your Jacksonville house. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect room to entertain guests, finish a crossword puzzle, or view a summer storm.

If you want your sunroom to become the most popular space in your house, it’s important to control for light throughout the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You may even want to redecorate your sunroom. A great place to begin is with your window treatments. You’ll want to find a window treatment that provides a view of outside and lets the natural light in but also will cover your windows for privacy and energy efficiency.

The specific type of window treatment you choose depends on your style, energy needs, and budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Jacksonville to help your sunroom become the most used space in your home.

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 customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture in your sunroom and can add to your home’s value. Their wide louvers give you a beautiful view of outside when they’re opened. They’re easy to adjust for privacy and light control - and simple to clean. They can swing out if you would like to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze.

Sunrooms have many windows which offer a nice view of the outdoors. But all that glass means that 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 open your shutters during the day to let in the sunlight and shut your shutters when it’s night to maintain the room’s temperature.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film provides an open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while allowing natural light to pass through into the sunroom. Window film both reflects and absorbs the sun’s energy so that you can keep your sunroom at the perfect temperature. Plus, it makes your HVAC system work less, which lowers your energy costs.

Window film also protects your carpeting and furniture. The direct sunlight that passes through your windows can fade and discolor your furnishings and carpeting. But window film minimizes fading so that your carpet and furniture stay true to its colors. You can add options like privacy tinting to window film which lets you see outside but prevents onlookers from peering into your sunroom. You can also add window film with other window treatments like plantation shutters or shades for additional energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Another sunroom window treatment that helps you easily control for light is roman shades. They are available in a large selection of fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles like classic, contemporary, and modern.

Pull the shades down to the bottom when you want privacy and less light. Pull them back up when you want a room with lots of light and a view of the outdoors. You can add options like 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 crafted from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
