How to Select the Best Sunroom Blinds

Sunrooms are a popular home improvement addition, but the same thing that we like about them (the warmth and sunshine), may raise energy bills and discolour furniture and carpeting. So, what’s the solution? Adding the proper window coverings to filter light, glare, and UV rays can help you manage the temperature of your sunroom — and those energy costs!


What are the finest window coverings for a sunroom? There are a few factors to consider before we give our best suggestions. For example, consider what the function of your sunroom is:


  • Is it a comfortable spot to unwind in the sun while reading a nice book?
  • Is this a room where you like viewing TV or reading on your computer?
  • Is glare control required?
  • Is your sunroom a haven for plants that need sunshine but not too much direct heat?


The answers to these questions will help guide your choice and ensure you choose the finest window coverings for your space and lifestyle.

The following are three of our most recommended options:

Roller/Solar Shades

Roller shades are an excellent option for sunrooms due to their elegant, low-maintenance style.


Roller shades traits:

  1. Affordable
  2. Roll up for a complete view of the outdoors
  3. Colours, patterns, and textures are available in a variety of combinations
  4. Able to provide various degrees of opacity
  5. Cordless or motorized options
  6. Long-lasting and simple to clean


Solar shades provide the advantages mentioned above plus the ability to filter UV and glare, while still allowing you to look through them and enjoy your view.

Cellular/Honeycomb Shades

A cellular shade’s honeycomb shape and low profile make it an ideal option for sunrooms that need insulation. Cellular shades help regulate temperatures and make your sunroom pleasant in any season, whether you live in a cold region and need to keep out chilly breezes, or in a hot sunny climate and need to keep out scorching heat (or in a location that has both types of weather).


Cellular shades traits:

  1. Affordably priced
  2. Stack tightly so that you can enjoy your view
  3. Top-down features are available
  4. Come in a wide range of colours and cell sizes for a classic to modern appearance
  5. Cordless or motorized options
  6. Long-lasting and low-maintenance

Woven Wood or Bamboo Shades

Woven shades are a popular choice, particularly among designers. The use of natural materials and the diversity of textures make these hues an option which interacts with the environment outside. The addition of a liner to woven blinds allows them to filter light and heat. Although not as permanent as roller and cellular shades, they provide a tropical feel to the space and may transform any sunroom into a soothing haven.


Woven wood shades traits:

  1. Available in a broad range of natural materials and colours
  2. Top down / bottom up features
  3. Cordless or motorized
  4. Fold up like a Roman shade
  5. Available unlined or lined (with light filtering or room darkening linings)
  6. Designer appearance that adds texture to your space
