Light-Loving Sheer Window Treatments for Sunrooms

When it comes time to choose a window treatment for your sunroom, one of the top features many homeowners search for is a sheer opacity. Letting the light shine in while letting you see outside, sheer window treatments are a great fit for sunrooms because they take full advantage of this unique space’s features. Some of our favorite light-loving sheers include:

  • Solar Shades: Hunter Douglas Designer Solar Shades are perfect for sunrooms as their unique fabrics help to block out UV rays while still allowing light to flow through. They are well suited for sunrooms that face the south and will ensure the ultimate sun protection.
  • Sheer Shades: Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas allow you to enjoy the sunroom throughout the day without the discomfort of excessive brightness or heat. Their sheer fabrics diffuses sunlight and protects your belongings from UV damage while their opaque vanes close tight for privacy when you need it. Hunter Douglas sheer shades come in a wide range of colors, textures, and styles, including:
    • Silhouette® Sheer Shades
    • Pirouette® Sheer Shades
    • Luminette® Sheer Panels

One of our favorite sunroom shades is Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades known for their innovative honeycomb design that traps hot air within the cells so your sunroom will remain cool as the heat intensifies in late spring.

Innovative Blinds for Sunroom Windows

Functional and versatile, blinds are an excellent choice for sunroom windows and doors. Whether your sunroom leads out to a patio and features sliding glass or French doors or if it requires window treatments that can close tight for privacy, blinds or shades with features that look and act like blinds are a great choice for any sunroom.

When shopping for a blind, consider whether a horizontal or vertical orientation makes the most sense for the size and shape of your windows. Vertical blinds are perfect for tall sunroom windows and sliding glass or patio doors. Their side-to-side movement and stacking features make them easy to access when you want to take advantage of your indoor/outdoor space.

As for wood, faux wood, and metal horizontal blinds, Hunter Douglas offers three varieties perfect for sunrooms and as a Whole House Solution™ depending on your needs:

  • Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds are an excellent option if you want a more contemporary look. Modern Precious Metals® Mini Blinds offer a sleek, minimal aesthetic and are easy to clean.
  • Parkland® Wood Blinds are the right choice if you love the rich appearance of natural wood. With over 50 paint colors and stains, you can find the perfect fit for your sunroom to add a stately dimension to your sunroom with Parkland® Wood Blinds.
  • EverWood® Faux Wood Blinds are an all-time favorite if your sunroom is off the kitchen, near the ocean, or deals with moisture and humidity. Comprised of composite materials, EverWood® Faux Wood Blinds will resist UV damage and other adverse conditions.

Banded Shades: For a unique take on blinds and shades together, we enjoy Designer Banded Shades for sunrooms.
