Sunglasses to Read?!

By: Daphnee

SUNWEA1202A

 

The other day I wanted to read the last ten pages of The Game of Thrones. I took a big chair and I sat next to the window in the sunroom. Holy moly! It was really bright, my eyes hurt, and I could definitely feel the strength of the summer sun (I had to move the chair away from the window, or else I would have had to get out my sunglasses to finish the book). I guess prior to this experience, I had never thought about how much sun hits that part of the house; clearly something needed to be done.

Relaxing Room

By: EricaTokyo Cappucino      

 

There is nothing more relaxing than being in a room that makes you feel like you are outside all year round. A place to take you away from all the madness and chaos that life brings on a daily basis. Well, at least in my life that is! Just recently I made an addition to my home that most would call a sunroom. At first, I wasn’t sure if it was a room that I would be using often since I have three kids and work a full-time job. I wouldn’t be enjoying much sun with a schedule like mine. But I have to say, it is the best investment I have ever made!

Sunweaves for Brighty

By: Keith

I recently moved into a huge house in the south of France which contains a sun room where I love to sit and watch the waves while hanging out with my pet bird, Brighty.  Nonetheless, my main issue is that the room is mostly windows and they are all empty.  This results in the room becoming very warm when the sun beats in.  I personally have a very high tolerance for aggressive temperatures, however, Brighty can only be in the room for small amounts at a time before it gets too warm and he faces health risks.  This is a problem because I don’t like hanging out in my sun room without the company of Brighty.  I decided it was time to cover up my windows in some capacity.

Easy Solution For Our Sunroom

By: Sherry

 

Dubai Earl Grey Roller

My husband and I recently decided to re-do some of the rooms in our house. We hadn’t updated anything since we first moved in 10 years ago. On our list of rooms was our dreaded sunroom. I say dreaded because there are a lot of windows and they are pretty big. When we moved in, we looked at custom window treatments and it was a hefty cost at that time. Instead, we had decided to just buy some mini blinds off the shelf to cover them. Now, they are dusty, old, and we want to update the look; it was time to tackle this room.

Looking for something to cut down on that harsh summer sun but want to maintain that view? Sunweaves do just that. They come in various weaves and thicknesses so you can choose how much sun is let in, and how much you can see through them. They are also easy to clean as they are made of fabric that has been coated in vinyl – you can just wipe them down with a sponge!

Sun Room 101

By: Kim

KITCHENSUNWEAVE

I have a sun room with a large double sliding glass door and 6 large windows. Buying the house initially my thoughts were “this is such a beautiful room! So much light and air flow!” ; as I am sure most people feel.. But little do you know, decorating that room quickly becomes hard work and a lot of trial and error.I knew I needed some type of window covering for mild privacy, but didn’t want it to take away from the openness of the room itself. My house is set back from the street but the sunroom is located off the side of the house, so you can see some of the windows from the street.

Sunweaves in Sunrooms

By: Jessica

One of the most popular options for sun rooms would be the Blinds to Go Sunweave collection. These multi-purpose shades let natural light through while keeping the view to the beautiful outside. This line of shades will block some of the UV rays as well as the harsh glare that comes along with direct sunlight. Sunweaves also have an insulation factor; they will keep the heat out during the summer and some of the cold out during wintertime. These properties contribute to protecting flooring, furniture, and any accessories from direct sun exposure.

“Preserving a View”

By KimRL-Tokyo_almond

Moving into a new home can take a lot out of you.  To make it easier my wife and I have been going room by room making changes. One project we recently did is our sun room attached to the side of the house; with nothing on four large windows. We don’t have neighbors near by so privacy wasn’t an issue, but by about 2 o’clock that sun pours in and makes the room very hot.
