Eric Ramsey

A sunroom that is airy and comfortable can become the most popular room in your Tampa house. Its big glass windows and the natural light make it the perfect room to relax with your latest novel, drink some coffee, or entertain family and friends.

To make your sunroom become the most popular space in your house, you should control the level of light during the day and keep the room temperature comfortable. If your sunroom is outdated or not your style, you may even choose to redecorate your sunroom. An easy place to start is with your windows and window treatments. Try 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, energy efficiency, and light control.

The exact style of window treatment you purchase depends on your energy needs, your budget, and your style. Here are some window treatment ideas for sunrooms in Tampa to turn your sunroom into the best room in the house.

Classic Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic window treatment that lets the 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 big louvers provide a pretty outside view when they’re opened. It’s easy to adjust them for privacy and light control - and they’re easy to clean. They can swing out when you would like to open up your sunroom windows to let in a cool breeze.

Sunrooms have a lot windows which offer a great view of outside. But that much glass means that your sunroom often isn’t energy efficient. Polywood® plantation shutters insulate 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 temperature of the room.

UV-Blocking Window Film

Window film provides an open view through your sunroom windows. It blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging UV rays while still letting natural light pass through into the sunroom. Window film both absorbs and reflects the sun’s energy so you’re able to keep your sunroom at the most comfortable temperature. And it takes stress off of your HVAC system, which saves money on your energy costs.

Window film also protects your carpeting and furniture. The sunlight that beats through your windows can fade and discolor your carpeting or furniture. But window film prevents fading so that your carpet and furniture keep its colors. You can add options such as 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 such as plantation shutters or shades for extra energy efficiency.

Decorative Roman Shades

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

Pull down the shades when you want less natural light and more privacy. Pull them back up 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 you want to increase 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.
