6 Popular Sunroom Designs and Decor Trends of 2017

By Becky Harris, Houzz

It’s a nice time of year to enjoy your sunroom. And if you don’t have one, now is a good time to start making plans for one, as these window-lined rooms are a real treat to spend time in when warm summer days seem like a distant memory. Called “Florida rooms” by many, they are filled with sunlight and bring a piece of sunny vacationlands to our homes during the colder months. Here are 6 of the most popular sunroom photos uploaded to Houzz this quarter, as measured by the number of people who have saved them to their Houzz ideabooks.

1. Quintessential Florida room style. It’s hard to resist this classic sunroom look. Tropical prints, extensive windows, rattan and bamboo furniture, and the pale blue ceiling bring sunny Florida up to Illinois year-round at this house.

2. Brick flooring. The brick flooring adds an outdoor element to this New Jersey room. It has many elements in common with the previous popular photo: the light blue ceiling, classical arches and transoms, and light British Colonial-style furniture you’d find in the Caribbean.

3. Interesting ceiling shapes. This space is a conservatory addition to a classic Tudor-style home in Wisconsin. The architecture of the sloped ceilings and cupola outfitted with transoms give the room a light and relaxed feel.
