 How To Create Perfect Sunroom

You did it, you finally have your home set up the way you want. You only have one thing left to do – make your sunroom into an oasis that will provide comfort and a feeling of getting away, while still being at your own address. With the Pacific Northwest weather, sunrooms are prime to view the beauty and changing weather right outside your door, in the comfort of your home. Let in all the sunshine, take a deep breath, and let us show you some top ideas on creating your own perfect getaway.


Starting off with our favorite topic at Bothell Budget Blinds, let’s talk about windows. Sunrooms are unique in the fact that their purpose is to let in more sun than the average room in the home. For this to happen, you want optimal window placement – not only for sun direction, but also for a strategic view. 

Once you know where you want your windows, you can decide on size. Did you know you can have an entire wall of windows? Depending on your view, this could be the most epic part of your home. Let’s say you live off a cliff or a hill on the coast, imagine taking in the full view while sipping your morning coffee or reading your favorite book.

If you’re not totally into windows from floor to ceiling, you can always bring the window from the ceiling to mid-level, or even have longer panoramic windows towards the center of the wall, extending from one edge of the room to the other. The key is to take your personal view, privacy, and desires into consideration. If you love that open feel, then we say the more window space the better – especially for this one room of the home. 

Roller Shades Sunroom

Blinds, Shades, Drapes 

Maybe you have a sunroom facing a big back yard, but are still in a neighborhood in Lynnwood or Kirkland, among other people. You can still have the full windows – or whatever size of your choosing – with privacy. With endless options, we will help you create your room to perfection. If you like an outdoor, soothing feel, try out Bamboo Shades or Wood Blinds, giving a crisp, fresh spa like feel to the entire room. They can both can be measured to the height of your window, giving you flexibility on the size. Paired with some wicker chairs, or comfy sofa’s and some beachy light fixtures – you’ll feel far away in no time.

Roller Shades are another great option, versatile in size and style. You can choose how much light you want to allow in while the shades are down by different fabrics, or perhaps have a light colored shade, still allowing in a soft hue of glow from the sun. 

Drapes are very popular for the wall of windows – kicking up the classiness a notch, while possibly still having shades to roll down if you want the drapes to stay drawn open. Floor length drapes can fully enclose you at night for privacy, and drawn to the side during the day for an elegant feel to the room (here's some more facts on Mountlake Terrace Drapes).

Perfect Sunroom Drapes


You have the windows and window treatments figured out, now the rest of the space is waiting for your creative, personal touch! A big perk for all of us who live in Washington, is adding a fireplace to the sunroom! Now not only do you have the natural beauty, light, and great outdoors – but in the winter you can keep your space cozy and just as comfortable with a fireplace strategically placed in the room. Picture watching the snow fall, or practically being outside in the middle of a Pacific Northwest storm, yet still dry, warm, and content playing board games with a view.

Maybe you will want to add a ceiling fan, a nice rug, and possibly even living room type furniture if you’re not feeling the average porch/patio furniture set. You can decorate with all types of pillows and plush, adding a table or bookshelf to make your sunroom your domain.

These are only a few ideas to get you started. For more, schedule an easy and free consultation to talk about ideas that will be best for your space.
