I need some suggestions for window treatment for sunroom windows.

Two of my sunroom windows are odd shaped, and let too much sun (and heat) in during the summer. The frame around the windows is aluminum, so we don't want to put holes in it. The curtain rods I have hanging on the rectangular windows are held up by Command Outdoor Hooks and they work beautifully. Since the windows above are triangular, I'm at a loss as to what to put up there during the summer. We do have a film on all of the windows to darken them, but it still is not enough to keep the heat from the sun out. Last summer we cut out some poster board and stuck it up with Velcro--doesn't look very good though. We would rather not put holes in the aluminum frame because it may leak. Please help!

    Put some Velcro on those top windows, out of the same fabric or something close to it, cut and hem triangular pieces to fit the upper windows. You may only need to have Velcro on the upper portion of the triangles. You can get it in the kind that has sticky tape on each one, so you won't need to glue them. I hope this helps! If not, maybe it will help stimulate the grey matter to come up with another solution while you watch football today. I'm rooting for Jacksonville and the Vikings! They both could use a good win and go to the super bowl.

    Is the film on the windows mirrored? We live in FL and founded the mirror window film reflexes back the sun. We purchased on Amazon.

    You can cover the odd shaped window with clear contact paper and then I like the look of a rod with long drapes

    Since the whole purpose of a sun room is to let the sun in, I'd leave the top windows bare. Then, I'd have blinds or shades installed to control the amount of light, at any given time of the day.

    Hoffd, I had the same problem and this is how I solved it: Take a look at my "Transom Window Treatment" project. I've had over 82K views on it, 161 people "want to try it" and 45 comments. I will tell you that it significantly reduced the heat in summer, keeps it warmer in winter, requires no nails, velcro and easily pops out if you want to change it. As for "blocking the sun", that's exactly what I wanted to do.
