Detached or integrated into your home’s interior, the sun room is the brightest spot in the house, for a multitude of reasons.
Allowing one to enjoy the natural environment all year round no matter the climate or weather conditions, the sun room provides all the pleasures of open-air splendor combined with the sheltering safety of the indoors.
Perfect for a moment of meditation and relaxation, as well as the ideal spot for entertaining friends under the stars, the sun room’s uses are as endless as they are irresistible.
While many older homes feature a standard sun room, newer models are also recognizing the benefits of these glassed-in sanctums; sun room extensions can also be built into one’s home as well. Depending on your intended use, your sun room’s interior style and furnishings can evoke the green house–potted plants, gardening implements, and wicker/woven furniture–or all the finery and considerations of a second living room or dining room.
Many prefer sturdier furniture and accents that can withstand constant and direct sunlight, while others incorporate drapery units that can block off excessive light as needed.
From Scandinavian cool to bohemian chic, rustic farmhouse to seaside bungalow, there’s no limit to the sun room’s aesthetic motivations. These sun room ideas are your personal parlor and retreat, a place to take in some rays without leaving the comfort of your own home. With so much potential, and the sky literally the limit, why not plan your own summer sun room today?
