I’ve been looking for new blinds for our enclosed back porch. It faces south and it’s just so bright. The room gets really hot with the sun pouring in too, so we must do something.
The room was built by the previous home owners. It has different sized, but large windows on the south facing wall, a window and glass paned door on the east side, windows on the west side – that wall adjoins with our neighbors enclosed back porch so those windows have a privacy film on them, and then the wall that leads to the house is brick.
The actually walls that the windows are in are paneled with a dark wood. I’d like to try my hand at lightly whitewashing those walls to brighten the room … yet put nice white mini-blinds on the windows to cut down the glare from the sun. I think the room would be very welcoming if I could pull it off.
What do you think?
