Looking to add efficiency to a sunroom without sacrificing style? Try shutters

Sunrooms are an undeniably beautiful accent to any home. These rooms feature many windows to give inhabitants the feeling of spending time outside without actually having to go anywhere. This part of the home is ideal for bug-free dining al fresco, or reading in the sunlight during the day. However, for many homeowners, this room is uninhabitable for much of the year because of the amount of windows that it features. 

During the summer, all the glass can make this part of your home quite hot if you don't have air conditioning, and many people find that it's futile to try to heat such a space for the winter. However, there's no reason why you can't enjoy all the seasons that British Columbia has to offer in your sunroom, with a little help from the right window treatments. 

Shutters are both naturally beautiful and energy efficient. Installing wood or vinyl shutters in your sunroom might just give it the edge it needs to become your favorite room in the house, and will certainly help to make sure that the temperature is better regulated year-round. 

These window treatments add an extra layer of insulation to the area that they cover, and can be used to block out light when they're closed. Here at Ruffell & Brown Window Covering Centre, we have a number of different styles of beautiful wood and vinyl shutters that will fit in with the look and feel of your home. Whether you would like permanent shutters or the kind that fold away, we have a style for you.
