The pool parties are getting fewer and farther between. The nights are getting a touch cooler, and school supplies are stocked high in every store. All this can only point to one thing: fall will be here before you know it. And while we all love the beautiful changing colors (and pumpkin spice lattes) we’re also sad to think about letting go of summer. But maybe this year you can hang on a little longer, with some fresh new sunroom ideas!
Adding a sunroom or screened porch to your home gives you a comfy, bug-free space all summer. But it doesn’t have to end there. An ideal sunroom addition can bring the fresh outdoors in, from spring all the way through fall. Keep the fresh air, added sunlight, and sounds of nature all year long. If you want to hang on to summer longer this year, it’s time to start thinking about your dream sunroom!
A Few Ideas For Your Sunroom
Sure, you’ve got the basics. You want lots of natural light (i.e., plenty of windows), an easy-to-clean floor, and a place for gathering. But what about taking it a step further? How about a space that doubles as an office? Who couldn’t use a little extra peace and quiet when working from home? You could also create a kid-friendly entertainment zone, the perfect place for gaming or other activities. Plan your sunroom near the kitchen and your space could double as an informal dining room. The possibilities are endless!

How about a raised ceiling with an extra large fan? Not only do you increase airflow, but the higher ceiling gives you the feeling of a larger space. It’s a win-win. Double-duty flooring. Choose a wood or tile flooring and cover half with a durable but soft large rug. Comfort when you want it, easy clean up when you need it. Easy-open windows from almost-floor to ceiling. Let in the light (and fresh air) with large windows throughout the space. And don’t forget the colors. Give your sunroom a natural and relaxing vibe with neutral colors and natural wood whenever possible.
