Sunroom Layouts, Window Designs, and Features
Sun rooms designed for the seasonal climate in North Carolina include:
1. Sunroom with see through or two-sided fireplace
This is a year-round sun room is designed for soaking up the summer sun and staying warm on cold winter evenings. The two-sided fireplace leads between the sun room and great room.
2. Sunroom with built in bench
You can tuck hidden storage into your sun room, with a built-in bench below the windows. This sun room runs along the kitchen wall, for an out-of-the-way relaxation area that stays separate from the great room. See a photo gallery of the rest of this home, click here.
3. Sunroom with Interior window wall
While less traditional in terms of home plan layout, we're seeing more home buyer requests for interior windows between the great room and sun room. In this home, a version of the Whitehaven, a large picture window offers views between the two main "hang out" areas of the home.
4. Sunroom with coffer ceiling treatment
Plenty of windows - and French glass doors - are must-have for a sun room design, ceiling treatments can turn a casual relaxation area into a formal space for guests to gather.
In this version of the Chapel Ridge, a two-tone coffered ceiling with indoor fan accents the sun room.
5. Bay style sunroom with vaulted ceiling
View from the breakfast room, looking into the open concept sun room. The kitchen bar area (with wine refrigerator and rack) fits a flat screen TV, placed especially for a sports-loving family who wants to watch the game from the island.
Here is another angle of the sun room, from the wine wall:
6. Craftsman sunroom windows
Rather than accenting the ceiling with a coffer or vault, this sun room focuses on craftman trim details - with hand-built frames around the windows.
A square ceiling fan light gives a touch of contemporary design to the modern craftsman home - photographed in a version of the McAlvany.
7. Breakfast Room / Sunroom design
If you're looking to downsize your home, or for ways to maximize the efficiency of the spaces in a larger floor plan, a breakfast room / sun room combination can make great use of space.
This breakfast room, located on the rear corner of the home plan, lets in tons of natural light. If you want to designate a formal dining space, consider converting a corner space such as this into an open concept sun room.
When you build a truly custom home, your builder can tell you how much flexibility your floor plan layout allows - and how to redesign to meet your needs.
