I just converted my screened in porch to a sunroom and I don't think I will ever leave this space. I loved being able to sit on my porch and savor the outdoors, but I did not like how we could not reap the benefits during the cold winter months. My favorite part about sunroom designs is that you can have both windows and screens in the in the walls so you can enjoy the outdoors year round without the hassle of all the bugs. I decided to keep the wicker furniture we had in our previous porch, but update the cushions to a beautiful shade of light blue. This reuse of the furniture really helped us stick to our budget with the remodel. I found that one of the best sunroom designs this year is to add designs in the windows, giving the look of stained glass without the colors.
My parents just moved into a new home and I am in love with their new sunroom. They have a large backyard with beautiful landscaping which they can admire through their sunroom windows. The best part of this sunroom design is the wall to wall windows bringing in the sunlight and amazing views of outside. The floor to ceiling windows allow for ample light to shine through and brighten up the space. I even love how they decorated the room with teak couches and arm chairs. This type of material is great for sunroom furniture ideas because, not only is it very comfortable, but creates the look and feel of a beautiful outdoor oasis.
I love taking on new sunroom designs projects because they allow you to use the beauty of nature as a fantastic backdrop to any look you bring in. I particularly liked how we paired a very masculine interior against the lush trees and beautiful gardens outside. These sunroom designs pictures showcase the gorgeous Turkish rug that we layered with simple beige sofas as a striking ebony side table and leather chairs. In order to soften the look a bit, we added pops of texture and pattern through plush throw pillows, custom lamp shades and a few floral elements. We were able to keep the sunroom cost low by recycling a lot of these pieces from other areas of the house, and letting the beauty of the outdoors replace artwork and pricey paint colors.
My husband and I just retired to a beautiful lake front home with a pool with the most beautiful sunroom. Being from upstate New York, we didn't really have much sun, let alone warm weather to enjoy for much of the year. Down here in Florida there is ample sun and this room is my favorite. Like many sunroom designs, ours has floor to ceiling walls of windows on 3 sides. One unique feature about our space is that the walls open up to the outdoors, it's amazing. Since the walls have the ability to be open and closed off, it makes for one of the most perfect four seasons sunrooms out there. We even have screens that pull out of the walls so we can enjoy the cool summer breeze without being attacked by bugs.
One of my favorite projects to take on lately is converting an old screened in porch into awesome sunroom designs. The particular room is one of my favorite finished looks because I love how the unique shape of their old screened in porch designs turned into such lovely architectural detailing once windows were installed. Crisp white paint and a beadboard ceiling give the new space a decidedly coastal look, and makes it so cozy and inviting. If you want similar sunroom ideas on a budget I would definitely look through some of our other designs, because you can achieve a gorgeous look like this in a variety of price points and with pretty much any existing porch layout.
We get a lot of calls for help with sunroom designs during this time of year, because homeowners want to enjoy their outdoor spaces but it is getting too hot (and too many bugs) to enjoy them without some protection from the elements. A sunroom addition like this presents a fantastic option because you feel like you are outside with the gorgeous views outside the windows, but you can enjoy the air conditioning indoors for bit more comfort. These rooms do not need to be huge. You can just add on a small 100 square foot room large enough to fit a sofa or sectional for lounging. Small sunroom ideas are usually quite cost efficient and can actually add a lot of value to your home in the long run as well as increase your family’s quality of life.
