Spencer Madsen

A sunroom that is comfortable and light is often the best room in your Boise house. Since it has large windows and lots of light, it’s the perfect spot to sit down with your latest novel, drink a cup of coffee, or entertain guests.

If you want your sunroom to become the go-to space in your house, you need to control for light throughout the day and keep the room temperature comfortable. You might even want to redecorate it. A good thing to start with is with your window treatments. Try to find a window treatment that lets in the natural light and offers an outside view but also will cover your windows for energy efficiency and privacy.

The type of window treatment you purchase depends on your energy needs, your budget, and your style. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Boise to help your sunroom become the most popular space in the house.

Classic Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets sunlight stream into your sunroom. They are a customized window treatment that becomes a permanent fixture and can increase your home’s value. Their big louvers offer a beautiful outside view when opened. It’s easy to adjust them for light control and privacy - and they’re easy to clean. If you want to open up your sunroom windows to let in a breeze, just swing out your plantation shutters.

Sunrooms have a lot windows which means you get a nice view of outside. But with all the glass, your sunroom might not be energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters help insulate your sunroom. They reduce heat transfer by 45% and are up to 70% more energy efficient than traditional wooden shutters. This makes it so you can open your shutters during the day to let in the sunlight and close your shutters when it’s night to maintain the room’s temperature.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film provides a completely open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s UV rays while letting natural light pass through into the sunroom. Window film both reflects and absorbs the sun’s energy so you’re able to keep your sunroom at the best temperature. Plus, it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which lowers your energy costs.

Window film also protects your carpeting and furnishings. The sunlight that beats through your windows can fade your carpeting or furniture. But window film prevents fading so that your carpet and furnishings keep its colors. You can add options such as privacy tinting to window film so that you can see outside but others can’t look into your sunroom. You can also add window film with other window treatments including shades or plantation shutters for additional energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

Another sunroom window treatment that lets you easily control how much light comes into the room is roman shades. They are available in a large selection of fabrics and patterns and a variety of styles such as classic, contemporary, and modern.

Pull down the shades when you need privacy and less natural light. Pull them back up when you would like a room with lots of light and a view of the outdoors. Options you can add include decorative scallops and trims, privacy liners, and cordless lift systems and motorization. If you’re looking to improve energy efficiency, it’s important to buy shades built from the right material. Shades that are crafted from heavier material will offer more insulation than lighter shades.
