Important Sunroom Design Considerations


There are countless reasons to add a sunroom to your home, including, but certainly not limited to, beautiful views, increased relaxation, and higher home resale value. However, it can be quite overwhelming to design one. There are some important things to keep in mind while designing your sunroom, so make sure to consider these factors:

Location

Northern Exposure: Northern facing sunroom offer shade in warm climates.

Southern Exposure: Southern facing sunroom let in warmth from the sun in cool climates.

Western Exposure: Warm in the late afternoon.

Eastern Exposure: Warmer in the morning.

Climate Control

It is important to keep air circulating in a sunroom, so ceiling fans are a must. Additionally, to permit more sunlight into the room you can install skylights, which may also improve ventilation if they are opened.

 

Window Choices

You can choose between single pane glass, which is ideal for seasonal sunrooms, double glazed or triple paned glass, which can heat or cool your sunroom., and low-E glass, which lets in sunlight without affecting temperature inside.

 

Flooring

The primary flooring options are concrete, ceramic, and stone flooring in a sunroom because they are best suited for heating. Additionally, they last very long, fight against moisture, and don’t fade.

 

Furniture

It is important to purchase weather-resistant furniture that is wicker and iron-based, and fade-resistance furniture with durable fabric that can survive the intense exposure to sunlight.

 

Window Coverings

Window coverings can be convenient for filtering out light or creating a sense of privacy. You can even install insulated cellular-shades, which can reduce heat loss through windows and prevent additional heat from entering the sunroom.

 

Wall Treatments

Try to choose wallpapers or paints that are fade-resistant. Additionally, they should not be applied on days that are excessively hot or cold because temperature can affect the adhesiveness to the walls during certain seasons. 

 

Ceiling Treatments

The appearance of ceilings in a sunroom play a major role in the overall aesthetic. You can choose between a vaulted, beamed, or coffered ceiling to spice up the ceiling.
