A brick floor adds a rustic touch that articulates the room's place between fully enclosed and open to the elements.
Just because a sunporch is often a three-season room, there's no reason to limit it to outdoor furniture and forgo cushy indoor-style upholstery. This elegant room works for formal and casual gatherings.
In fact, a sunporch will protect more refined woods and textiles than an open or screened-in porch, so you can furnish it with more formal and delicate pieces.
The best of both worlds involves a
sunporch surrounded by screens in the summer ...
... swapped out for glass windows in the winter.
A sunporch is a great opportunity to let your "I love cottage style" flag fly. Oversize checkerboard painted floors make this porch a playful standout.
If you're looking for more indoor living space around your house, consider closing in an existing open or screened in porch and turning it into a sunporch. If you want to show off in front of the neighbors, call your renovated room a "conservatory."
