Choosing the perfect window treatments in your sunroom means weighing privacy with light-filtering capabilities.

Sunroom season is back in full-swing, so if you have this distinctive feature in your home, now is the time to make sure it looks brilliant for the warm weather. The best layout is to use window treatments that allow light to filter in and form a tight seal during the winter time, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"Sunrooms usually have so many windows, so much glass," Nick Olsen, Los Angeles interior designer, told the news source. "You want to soften the hard edges and take away the feeling of being up against the outside of the house."

Using natural accents such as plants, soft paint colors and plenty of comfortable furniture is the best way to work with the space. Place your furniture near the windows so they will get direct sunlight during peak times of the day.

Roller shades are popular styles for sunrooms, and are also perfect for large windows. They ride a track on the inside of the window frame and can be found in countless colors and styles to suit your interior design. They are very simple to pull up and down, making them a great option for families with small children.
