Sunrooms can be a great addition to any home, but in certain parts of the country they can be unbearable during the summer and winter months. Here’s how adding plantation shutters can help solve this problem.
So how do Plantation Shutters help keep your Sunroom bearable?
Here are just some of the ways Plantation Shutters can help your Sunroom:
- Shutters add greater energy efficency, saving you money
- They allow greater control of intense sunlight that can fade furnishings
- And they add beauty and charm to your sunroom
In order to maximize the original purpose of the room (openness to the outside) there are a few design tips to keep in mind.
- Large Louvers will help to maintain the openness of the sunroom.
- Hidden tilt will let you obstruct the least amount of your view while getting the most out of your sunroom.
- Be sure to order the largest panel as you can reasonably fit in your windows. This will minimize the presence of stiles taking up more space than needed. Remember, Kirtz custom built shutters up to 38″ wide are all under warranty. We can make larger shutters if needed, consult a sales rep to learn more.

Typically, the standard plantation shutters will be set in a frame, and then the shutters will be hinged to the frame.
Another option for those with certain sunroom configurations is to put your shutters on a sliding track. The benefits of this is that one shutter panel will slide over another, allowing you to fully open up 1/2 of the window without swinging the shutter into the room. Doing this can make it much easier to place furniture in your sunroom. However, it’s important to determine beforehand if this application will work for your sunroom. The reason for this is that a slider shutter frame is deeper than other shutter frames. Typically slider shutter frames go 5 1/2 ” deep, compared to 2-21/2″ deep for other shutter styles.
