Sunroom interior

The days of generic, cookie-cutter sunroom additions have long since passed. Now homeowners have a lot of control over the design and layout of their sunroom additions. But, the design process can be a challenge! 

Whenever you are designing a space, consider starting with a big picture view. As you add layers to the room from the walls and floors down to the lamp shades and knick-knacks the design choices become easier to make.

Type of Sunroom Addition for the Home

Designing a custom sunroom for your home really starts before you build. There are many types of home additions and ways to lay out these rooms. Most sunroom installation companies will provide a sunroom tailored to the shape of the home exterior, as well as, the desired square footage for the room.

Some home addition and sunroom types that you can choose from include:

  • Four-Season Sunroom
  • Three-Season Sunroom
  • Studios
  • Cathedral Sunrooms
  • Conservatories
  • Deck Enclosures

When choosing the type of sunroom to install, consider how you'll most likely use the space. For instance, a small studio can be a private workspace and a conservatory can serve as home for your plants over winter. Picking out a flexible and functional sunroom style will help you make the most of this space.

Window Design Options

Another consideration are the window types and options for your sunroom. A traditional sunroom features ceiling to floor windows on two to three sides. These windows can be picture windows, double-hung windows, casement windows, or any other popular style. You may even want a mix of window types, including operable and non-operable windows.

Homeowners can further personalize their new windows by choosing the frame colors, materials, and options, like window tints or screens to keep bugs out when open.

Interior Design Options

The interior of your sunroom is what you'll see and experience on a daily basis. Thankfully, homeowners have a lot of control over the final design of their sunroom interiors. 

You should be able to pick out wall shades and flooring colors that best fit your needs and the style of the rest of your home. You may also want to look into ceiling fans, AC units or HVAC connections, and lighting options to ensure this room is as useful as it is attractive.

Finishing Touches

Decorative touches and furniture are what give any room a lived in feeling. If you are wondering what kind of furniture or fixtures to add here, just remember to treat it like any other room in your home. 

A well-built sunroom should be watertight, durable, and resistant to extreme temperatures. So you can safely place cloth furniture in this room, or add electronics, like a television.

You can also add curtains and floor rugs or carpeting too. Being able to draw the shades at night also allows you to continue enjoying this room in privacy late into the evening.
