Sunrooms are beautiful living spaces which increase home values, give character to house designs and bring lots of fun into homes. Sunrooms add plenty of natural light into adjacent interiors, provide gorgeous views of the yard landscaping, offer comfortable retreats from the cold or rain, create bright living spaces to relax and unwind in the evening or enjoy crafts with kids in the sunny morning or afternoon.
A screened porch or sunroom design connects home interiors with the surrounding landscape or a beautiful garden, bringing natural beauty into the living spaces. Contemporary rooms are a blend of traditional design trends and novel ideas, offering exciting glass solutions and opportunities to experiment with new materials and creative architectural designs.
Modern sunroom design offers several styles, including fabulous spaces built with metal and glass, wood and glass, with elegant French doors that open to a deck, garden or stone patio. Unusually shaped glass panels, folding and sliding glass doors add a contemporary vibe to modern houses.
Sunroom design ideas
Modern sunrooms, solariums or conservatories can have glass ceiling designs, and design ideas vary for year-round or three-season use. Four-season sunrooms are fantastic extensions of the homes providing warm and luxurious living spaces to enjoy the landscape all year around. Modern lighting fixtures or lights in vintage style, ceiling fans, and comfortable furniture emphasize an inviting and stylish atmosphere in beautiful sunrooms. Building a fireplace, installing a stove or bringing a room heater just increases the effect.
Natural materials, from concrete, bricks, wood and floor tiles, offer beautiful flooring ideas. Creative and original floor decoration with mosaic tiles or attractive brick patterns can add charming details to sunroom design. A floor rug can bring warmth into the addition and create chic and cozy space to enjoy your gorgeous views all year around.
