IMG_1661When real estate housing and apartment décor trends are discussed there are very few features that everyone can usually agree on as being highly covetable (especially if you live in New York City).  However, there is one perk that is considered a coveted luxury no matter where you live:  a greenhouse space or sunroom.  On top of being a stunning décor choice, greenhouse rooms or sunrooms have the added bonus of potentially helping you save energy (with the proper window shading options) during both warm and cool months.

Motorized Skylight Shades

Covering a skylight window with a motorized window treatment not only adds a visual interest to the room, but it’s also a practical solution for controlling the amount of light and heat coming through the window. Skylights are hard to reach and it can be challenging to add a simple window shade where you have to either climb a ladder or use a long pole to open and close the shade. Sometimes extension poles can be hard to maneuver, especially if you’re reaching up high.

Motorized blinds or shades offer simplicity and are a practical solution for all your needs. By being able to open and close the skylight shade with the touch of a button or the flip of a switch, you can enjoy your television show without a glare and you can sleep in without the bother of the sunlight. Light control can be adjusted accordingly, whether you are trying to keep the heat out on a hot summer day or want to feel the warmth of the sun on a cold winter morning.

Don’t be bothered by unwanted heat and light entering your room through your sunlight. Motorized sunlight shades can be installed quickly and will provide ultimate light and heat control for your home. Penthouses throughout New York City have installed motorized blinds and sunlight shades to keep out the sunlight and to help block the noise coming from the “city that never sleeps.”

Shades for Your Sunroom

A sunroom can be a perfect room to relax, particularly in the winter months when you may not be able to get outside as often as you would like. While oftentimes, you enjoy the sunlight in cooler weather, there are times that it is just too bright or too hot. It does not take long for a sunroom to become overheated and stuffy. This is a problem that many people do not consider before adding large windows to a home. But there is an answer that is easier than you think.

Sunroom shades

Sunroom shades

Retractable shades are the perfect solution for the downside of sunlight in your atrium, solarium, or sunroom. Elegant and stylish, the shades systems are available with motorized controls that automatically open or retract based on temperature, brightness, or other conditions. You can also override the system with the touch of a button on a remote control.

Remote controlled window treatments are particularly beneficial for hard to reach areas, such as a sky light or wall-length windows. While residents want the ability to enjoy the view out their windows, they also want the ability to control glare and heat.

One major issue that is a concern for both residential and commercial sunrooms is the inherent lack of privacy in a glass-walled room. A retractable shading system addresses this problem. The modern window treatments can allow a great deal or a small amount of light into a room, while still protecting your privacy.

Privacy window treatments allow those on the inside to see everything out the windows, yet completely shield the view from the outside in. This is especially helpful for rooms located near a busy sidewalk or during confidential business meetings.

Another common issue associated with large windows in a sunroom is the deterioration of furniture, books, or other belongings. Sunlight quickly fades wood, fabric, and most other materials. However, a properly installed retractable shading system will protect your furnishings from potential sun damage.

If you are becoming frustrated with the sun in your “sun” room, you do have the ability to turn your windowed room into all that you imagined it would be with the help of retractable shades.
