How do you install roll up blinds in a sunroom?

Are the brackets somehow screwed in the metal of the sunroom or is there some type of glue that can be used?  

How do I measure the windows? Measure all three (3) sizes of the room or can 7 small blinds be installed?  Is it best with less holes in the sunroom?  Which is the best blinds to get to eliminate the most light from being seen from the outside?Looking for privacy

Hey Independent,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

Almost all brackets sold with blinds today in the industry are fastened by screws. NEVER use glue, as most adhesives aren't suitable to support the weight of the blinds. 

The maker of your blinds will give you detailed instructions regarding installation. At minimum, you'll need to make sure you have a drill/drill bit, level, measuring tape, and screw to get the installation done right.

Even if it is metal, you'd pre-drill a hole slightly smaller than the screw's dimension, and then use screws rated for metal to fasten the brackets into the frame. Simple as that. 

To measure your windows, please click here for an easy how-to guide on doing it.

As for the layout, it is entirely up to you to decide what type and how many blinds you can use. Since there are many types of privacy blinds with light blocking features in a roll up form,  your best bet is to come into your local Home Depot and view your window treatment options. 

While we do have window treatment options here online for you to view, you can actually touch and see the physical samples of them while at your store. Make sure you always have your exact measurements before shopping for your blinds so you can get the correct price. 

There's also cellular, vertical, mini-blinds, roman, natural and faux wood type blinds...just to name a few. At the end of the day, your personal tastes and budget will dictate what blinds to place in your sunroom.

As for preventing the most light from entering the sunroom, you'll need to look at black out aka light blocking options. While room darkening sounds good, the black out/light blocking types work better for you guessed it....blocking out all light.
