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!

New Home Problems

 

By: Karen

When I moved into my new house last month, I had no idea how many purchases and bills were to follow.  Well, that’s not completely true; everyone had told me that buying a house was a huge investment aside from just the purchase of the house, but I never really stopped to consider all of the little things that you need.  New light fixtures, more furniture to fill the rooms, new decorations, and various other little projects that need to be tackled.

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.

Cellulars for My Sunroom

By: SherrySOLIDTONES_1202A

 

I had purchased my house not too long ago and I am very lucky to have a sunroom. I love how sunny and bright the room is. It is the room I usually try to sit in during the afternoon when I want to relax. Right away, I hung up paper shades because I have close neighbors and needed something so I wouldn’t be a fishbowl. But after a month, I was ready to purchase something permanent.

Perfect Blinds for Our Sunroom

By: SherryLAREDO_1in detail1202E

 

My wife and I recently had windows replaced in our sunroom. They are new Anderson insulated windows, which is something we needed for the sunroom. Because of that, our old blinds wouldn’t fit in the windows. My wife and I had our own ideas of what we wanted.

My wife wanted something that would be easy for her to keep clean. I wanted something that would block the sunlight when I watched TV on the weekends. We both wanted something that we could open during the day and shut at night for privacy. Turns out, there are a lot of things that could do this for us.

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.
