Cellulars for My Sunroom

By: SherrySOLIDTONES_1202A

 

I had purchased my house not too long ago and I am very lucky to have a sunroom. I love how sunny and bright the room is. It is the room I usually try to sit in during the afternoon when I want to relax. Right away, I hung up paper shades because I have close neighbors and needed something so I wouldn’t be a fishbowl. But after a month, I was ready to purchase something permanent.

Easy Solution For Our Sunroom

By: Sherry

My husband and I recently decided to re-do some of the rooms in our house. We hadn’t updated anything since we first moved in 10 years ago. On our list of rooms was our dreaded sunroom. I say dreaded because there are a lot of windows and they are pretty big. When we moved in, we looked at custom window treatments and it was a hefty cost at that time. Instead, we had decided to just buy some mini blinds off the shelf to cover them. Now, they are dusty, old, and we want to update the look; it was time to tackle this room.

“Summer Gatherings”



By: Kim

I always use my sunroom as a gathering space for when we have guests over. I want to be able to use it more than just in the spring and fall – but the heat in the summer is just unbearable. Originally, we put up some vinyl mini blinds as a quick fix, and they did block out some of the light and help a little with the heat in the room.  Unfortunately, they did not at all give me the look that I wanted in the room – they looked like a quick fix too.

Sunweaves in the Sunroom

By: Kim RL-miami_esp-019_cmyk

 

Looking for something to cut down on that harsh summer sun but want to maintain that view? Sunweaves do just that. They come in various weaves and thicknesses so you can choose how much sun is let in, and how much you can see through them. They are also easy to clean as they are made of fabric that has been coated in vinyl – you can just wipe them down with a sponge!

A DIY Sunroom Door

 

By: Carrie WV-trinidad_cocoa

 

A few months back, my cousin bought her first house. As the unofficial family décor guru, she came straight to me for advice.

The house has a somewhat strange layout. There’s an area off the living room that the realtor called a nook, but it’s unlike any I’ve ever seen. It juts from the main house in a roughly 9’x7′ rectangle lined with large windows, essentially creating a sunroom sans door. It’s a great little spot, but doesn’t go with the vibe she wants for the living room. We decided to close it off and make it a proper sunroom.

Should I?

By: Carrie BTG107

 

Expanding your home can be a costly and stressful proposition. But, with houses still selling for far less than they were originally bought at, many homeowners are looking to add on instead of selling.

If you’re going to put on an addition to your home, consider adding a sunroom. Typically on the smaller side, these gorgeous glass enclosures bring an unexpected versatility that you won’t get with your standard, dry-walled room.

Sunrooms, in a sense, bring the outside in. They protect you from the elements – take in nature’s light show and watch a thunderstorm safe and dry. Or enjoy a book in the fresh air and sunshine without allergies acting up.

A Room By Any Other Name…

 By: CarrieCL-Finale34_cambridgeRiverB

 

A bedroom is called a bedroom because there’s a bed in it. A bathroom, by

general definition, has a bath in it. (Fun fact! North America is one of

the only regions where a room with a toilet is called a “bathroom”.

Everywhere else, a bath is required and a toilet is optional.)

So, what is a sunroom? Well, it stands to reason that it’s a room designed to be filled with sunlight. Sunrooms come in a myriad of shapes, styles, and materials, but they all serve the same general purpose. And they’re popular all over the world. You’ll find them in North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Asia. Though, depending on where you go, they may go by a different name.

Lake Front View

By Dominic

About a week ago, I  finished the construction on my new sun porch in the back of my house facing the lake.  I wanted the room to be very open and bright, so I put eight windows and a french door into the room. (This was before I had put much thought into what kind of window treatments I would purchase to cover them all).
