Can I add shades to an aluminum framed patio?

We're going to get our little sunroom converted from wood framing to aluminum. See http://wilsonwindow.com/fixed-screen-applications/ for an idea. It would probably be something like the pictures at the bottom.

The one thing I'm hesitating about is how to add some shade for the summer. I know I can get solar screening but I don't want it dark even in the winter. Is it possible to hang those plastic (faux bamboo) Roman blinds from an aluminum frame?

Any other ideas?
