When summer comes along, so does decorating the sunroom. Traditionally, bamboo is a popular option for sunrooms. Usually, because sunrooms are often casual, and decorated with a lot of casual elements, often including wicker furniture. The great thing about bamboo is there are a lot of options and customizations.
First, you start from choosing the color and texture of the material of the blinds themselves. They come in a lot of wood tones, which are often easy to match to your furniture, although one of the most popular options is going with a white (again matching to that wicker furniture a lot of people have). The other option is how decorative you want them to be. They can come completely plain, which would give you a casual look, or you can dress them up with a nice edging, which has options varying from extremely plain to simple prints. They can also come in a flat panel, or a folded panel (which lends more of the look of a roman shade.
Aside from the decor aspect, you can also choose the functionality. Being that you generally do not need too much privacy in a sunroom, you can leave the shade completely unfinished, which allows in a lot of light, but still allows you to see out (the downside – at night people can see in). If you do need privacy, there is the option of a light filtering liner that allows in some light but you can’t see through. Or, if anyone ever sleeps in the room, or there is a flat screen TV, you can add a blackout liner that completely cuts out the light.
By the time you are done choosing all of the options, you have a blind that will completely fit into your room, and match perfectly!
