Flooring for sunroom

November 19, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are in the process of building a 12 by 16 year round sunroom. It will be six foot windows along all walls except for the wall that enters into the kitchen. The ceiling will be white bead boarpound the few walls will be white as well, specifically pointing by farrow and ball. Our room will open into our kitchen which has dark hardwood floors
I am looking for suggestions for the sunroom floor. I am thinking of stone or tile. Any photos anyone?

Is your space traditional or contemporary? A slate look porcelain tile might work nicely.

My space is traditional. I had thought of large slate tiles but hesitated because I want it to be light and airy.

Porcelain tile that comes in so many patterns would be great.

Some slate would look too dark. Thinking more of like this.

I see what you mean by the light slate. I also don't mind the idea of porcelain tiles that are a little fun as it is a room that I could take a few liberties with. Thank you

do a search on this site of travertine floor in the versailles pattern (AKA French pattern). a lighter travertine would look nice.

I'm with you on the light color and large format stone. In terms of stone, I much prefer limestone to travertine as there is less fill in the stone. An ashlar pattern would be beautiful in your traditional style home. The limestone would provide a neutral palette that you would never tire of and a space ready for some FUN color in the fabrics, art, and maybe even on the walls. If you prefer to use a ceramic tile that looks like limestone, one of my favorites is the Cappadocia tile from Ann Sacks. The size is approximately 12 x 24 and could be layed bond (like large brick).

Yes, I am looking at a slip covered crate and barrel sofa but I want to have two smaller chairs with colorful, patterned material...maybe ferns or flowers? I wll check out the limestone Ashlar pattern. I am loving all the suggestions!

I think this is a beautiful sunroom with magnificent stone flooring.

I agree...stunning. Love the floor. I also have already purchase a Baker vintage bamboo and glass cocktail table and an antique table lamp with a pineapple wood base. I am loving all these suggestions. This is great!

I agree with the above comments. A medium tone slate or porcelain would look nice.
