There’s just something about a radiant and inviting sunroom that makes you want to peel off your clothes, throw on a robe and curl up in those wonderfully warming rays. If you’re looking for sunroom inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up some of our very favorite screened-in porches that will give you major sun envy.
Add a Vintage Rug
Some of our very favorite sunroom looks include a stunning rug that really completes the space. We love everything about this office from Studio Mcgee, but the vintage Turkish rug is what makes the space feel finished and well-defined. There are endless options when it comes to adding a rug to your sunroom, and it can help provide a cozy landing pad on those chilly mornings.
A Greenhouse Sunroom
Sommarbacka’s sunroom reminds us of a greenhouse in all the best ways. If you have an unfinished sunroom, transform it into a home for all of your favorite plants, add a hammock or a lounge chair, and volia—you’ve got a rustic three-season room that’s low on effort and big on style.
Create Another Guest Space
If you’re short on guest space, this sunroom from Savvy Home Blog is a great way to help accommodate your friends and family. It has a built-in window seat that transforms into a guest bed whenever you need one. And what guest wouldn’t want to spend a summer’s night under the stars? Just be sure to provide blackout curtains, and you have a multi-use space that your guests will be clamoring to stay in.
Add a Mini Library
A sunroom that lets the perfect amount of afternoon light inside has the ultimate reading-nook potential, so we love that this room from Bolig includes a small built-in library. If you’re looking for the perfect space to create a home library, your sunroom offers a refreshing alternative to a dark, dusty study.
Go Plant Crazy
The best sunrooms have just the right amount of greenery. This look from SF Girl is filled with unique and eye-catching indoor plants and offers a jungle-like feel. A great sunroom gives you the sense of being outside while still protecting you from the elements, and this plant-filled sunroom is the perfect stress-free oasis.
Porches Work Too
Though a sunroom typically has windows or screens, this cozy porch from The Every Girl proves that with smart design, even a front porch can feel like an extra room. The carefully decorated coffee table and loveseat with throw pillows give this porch a living room-like feel. If you’re looking for even more porch ideas, there are endless ways to create another living space outside.
A White Palette
If you want to make your sunroom feel like an extension of your home, this all-white color scheme from homebunch has a chic, living room-like feel. Styling a monochromatic white room can help a space feel open and breezy, and offers a high level of versatility that should suit almost any sunroom.
Add a Hammock
The best sunrooms bring both the best of the indoors and outdoors together, and we can’t think of a better way to blend them than with a hammock—as seen in this space from The Little Corner on Tumblr. You can’t help but feel like you’re on vacation the minute you lay down in a hammock, so why not indulge in an indoor one and get a dose of that relaxed feeling all the time?
A Sunny Play Place
Worried about your kids spending too much time inside? This playroom from Walk Among the Homes is stylish and functional, creating a perfect sunny space for your kids to play in all year long.
Move Your Office “Outside”
Lucky enough to have a job where you can work from home? Creating an office sunroom, like this chic space from The Pink Pagoda, can make those long work days that much more pleasant. A comfortable desk chair and dependable WiFi are all you need to create a home office that will ensure you never want to commute to work again.
Try an Outdoor Fireplace
Want a way to get a few more months out of your sunroom? This fun space from Nellie Bellie has one standout feature: a fireplace that can keep your sunroom alive through the winter months. Adding a sunroom fireplace can turn your three-season room into a four-season one—as long as you don’t mind cozying up with a robe and a pair of fluffy slippers.
