Sunroom Window Treatment Ideas In Charlotte

Neil Blackwelder

A sunroom that is airy and comfortable can become the most popular room in your Charlotte home. Its large windows and generous natural light make it the perfect spot to sit down with your latest novel, savor a cup of coffee, or entertain family and friends.

If you want your sunroom to become the go-to spot in your house, you need to control how much light comes in during the day and maintain a steady room temperature. You may even need to redecorate your sunroom. A good thing to start with is with your windows and window treatments. Look for a window treatment that lets in the natural light and gives you a view of outside but also allows you to cover your windows for privacy and energy efficiency.

The exact style of window treatment you buy depends on your energy efficiency needs, your style, and your budget. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Charlotte to help your sunroom become the most used space in your house.

Classic Plantation Shutters

A classic window treatment option is plantation shutters which let the light stream into your sunroom. They are a custom-built window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture and can increase your home’s value. Their wide louvers give you a beautiful outside view when opened. They’re easy to adjust for privacy and light control - and a breeze to clean. They can swing out if you would like to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze.

Sunrooms have many windows which means you get a view of the outdoors. But that much glass means that your sunroom usually isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters insulate your sunroom. They reduce heat transfer 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 temperature of the room.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film provides a completely open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays while allowing natural light to 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. And it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which lowers your energy costs.

Window film also keeps your carpeting and furniture pristine. The sunlight that beats through your windows can discolor and fade your furniture and carpeting. But windows with window film reduce fading so that your carpet and furnishings stay true to its colors. You can add options like privacy tinting to window film which lets you see outside but prevents others from looking into your sunroom. You can also add window film with other window treatments such as shades or plantation shutters for increased energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Another sunroom window treatment that helps you easily control how much light comes into the room is roman shades. They are available in many fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles like classic, contemporary, 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 bright room where you can see outdoors. Options you can add include privacy liners, cordless lift systems and motorization, and decorative scallops and trims. If you’re looking to improve energy efficiency, it’s important to choose shades built from the right material. Shades that are crafted from heavier material will provide more insulation than lighter shades.
