It's no argument...Southwest Florida is true paradise. With our salty sea air, sun-kissed skies and balmy weather all year-round, more and more sun-seekers are making this area their home. Although Southwest Florida is seemingly perfect, there are things that you'll need to watch out for to make the most out of your stay here, whether you're a snow bird or a full-time resident. Aside from those pesky mosquitoes, the sun, although beautiful, can wreak havoc on your belongings especially if they're left unprotected. That's why outfitting your home with proper window treatments is highly advised. When it comes to privacy, protection and beauty, here are the best window treatments for sun-filled rooms.
Roller shades are a top choice for those who want to protect furniture, artwork and other items from fading in the sun in particularly bright rooms like the living room and lanai areas. Built to give you the privacy you want, coupled with the protection you need, roller shades effortlessly filter out sunlight and block harmful UV rays. Not only are they helpful in sunny spaces, they're also available in various options like:
Colors & patterns
Motorization and other operation options
These shades reduce the amount of solar heat that enters through your windows, not only protecting your valuables, but also lowering your energy bills. As more and more sunlight enters your home, your air conditioning will be working in overdrive. That's where roller shades step in to save the day. And if you're looking to black out a room (say, a bedroom for example), so that you can sleep past sunrise, blackout options are available as well.
Plantation shutters have many benefits, like their classic, timeless style and durable construction, making them extremely popular in Southwest Florida homes. Not only can you get the look you want carried through to any room in the home, you're also able to customize their operation in each space to make them work perfectly. For instance, adding a midrail to your shutters allows you to operate the top and bottom louvers independently from one another, so if you want to let a little light in, you're able to without ruining your belongings. Available in multiple louver sizes, colors, wood options and operations, you're able to get the ideal window treatments for those sunny areas of your home, so that you can enjoy them any time of the day.
Other Ideas for Sunny Rooms
You can't control the sun, which leads many homeowners to simply avoid areas of the home when the sun is hitting them just right. Don't inconvenience yourself! Other window treatments that work for sun-filled rooms include:
Woven wood shades
Poly plantation shutters
When it comes to your home in paradise, you shouldn't have to avoid certain areas, just because of the sun! Protect your items, enjoy the space and get the privacy you need when you choose the right window treatments for the job. Whether you're looking for classic plantation shutters or unique woven wood shades, your options to enhance your space are endless.
