While every homeowner’s tastes and every sunroom we build are different, there are a few key sunroom style ideas that almost everyone loves. Check out these 6 sunroom style trends that ensure your sunroom looks stunning inside and out.
1. Maximum Glass
You love sunrooms because you want to bring in tons of natural light and appreciate your view of the outside. To get the most of those things, you need as much glass as possible. One popular sunroom style involves stretching your windows tall from floor to ceiling. An advantage of designing your sunroom with Choice Windows is that we build modular sunrooms, so that we can extend your window space all the way to the corner – that wouldn’t be possible in a traditional build.
2. Hidden Fasteners
3. Picture Window Feel
While grid work on windows is gaining popularity in home window replacement, the uninterrupted picture window style is the dominant trend when designing a sunroom. Again, sunroom design comes down to ensuring that you have maximum glass space and completely uninterrupted views of the outside. Bottom line: while a grid pattern may be gorgeous and rustic, it doesn’t match the style and purpose of a sunroom.
4. Flow to the Rest of the House
While the sunroom may be a home addition, a popular trend is to create a flow between it and the rest of the house. One of the best ways to accomplish this is matching a color or pattern from the main house into the sunroom. Another more advanced technique is to connect the areas with an exposed structural beam.
5. Custom Skylights
Another way to invite in the all-import natural light, adding skylights is a popular sunroom idea that we love to use. Once again, this is a place where our modular building style pays off. At Choice Windows, we can custom cut skylights as large as you want, since there are no rafters to get in the way. On a bright sunny day, your sunroom will be bathed in light from all angles — there are few things better than that.
6. Exterior Matching
While the majority of our sunroom style advice applies to the inside, since that’s what you’ll see every day, there are sunroom exterior style points you’ll want to keep in mind. As with any home addition, you want your sunroom to look like it’s part of your home.
There are several ways you can match the exterior of your sunroom to your house:
Your new sunroom will quickly take its place as your pride and joy. You want to ensure that you can use your beloved sunroom year-round. Some homeowners have the concern that their sunroom will be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
Here’s how Choice Windows ensures the sunrooms we build are as perfect for Christmas morning as they are for the 4th of July:
