When building and designing a sunroom for your home one of the most important first steps is to decide how big space will be as well as the primary usage.
If you plan to have a nice relaxing room to read or nap, then your style and features should reflect that. Couches instead of chairs, shelving instead of tables and fewer window dressings or obstructions.
You also need to consider what room the sunroom with be adjacent too. If you plan to have it near the kitchen, making the sunroom an alternative dining room would mean that you need more tables and chairs and less actual storage or shelving than if it was off of the living room where it would need bookshelves and recliners.
Whatever you decide, your sunroom should be a room you enjoy being in as well as having as a part of your home. You can view our galleries to get more inspiration and ideas or use the tools to help you plan and design the sunroom you have always wanted.
