Optimizing your Sunroom for the Summer

As summer approaches, many homeowners are looking for ways to maximize their outdoor living space. If you have a sunroom or porch fill-in, you’re in luck – these versatile spaces offer a great way to enjoy the outdoors while still staying cool and comfortable.


Here are some helpful tips for optimizing your sunroom or porch fill-in space this season. 


Keep it cool: Enjoy your sunroom or porch fill-in by keeping it cool. This can be done by installing ceiling fans, using blinds or shades to block heat from the sun’s rays and by creating airflow with a cross breeze by keeping windows open on either end. Keeping airflow moving and providing shade will help keep you cool on really warm days. 


Choose the right furniture: When it comes to choosing the right furniture for your sunroom or porch fill-in, it’s important to consider who is using the room and how it’s being used? Is your room being used as a cozy family space to read, nap and snuggle in or is it an overflow space off of a pool area where wet bathing suits will come in and sit on the furniture. Choosing the right materials will help create the vibe and versatility of the space. 


Create zones: If you have a large sunroom or porch fill-in, consider creating different zones for different activities. For example, you could set up a dining area for meals, a lounging area for reading or napping, and a play area for kids. By creating distinct zones, you’ll be able to use your space more effectively and accommodate multiple activities at once.


Go Green: Plants add life and color to any space and a sunroom or porch fill-in is no exception. Consider adding potted plants or hanging baskets to bring a bit of nature indoors. Not only will plants improve the aesthetics of your space, but they’ll also help purify the air and create a more relaxing environment.


Lighting goes a Long Way: As the sun sets, you’ll want to make sure your sunroom or porch enclosure stays well-lit. Consider adding outdoor lighting fixtures, such as string lights or lanterns, to create a cozy ambiance. You could also install dimmer switches to adjust the level of light depending on your needs.


By following these tips, you can make the most of your sunroom or porch enclosure this summer. Whether you’re hosting outdoor dinners, enjoying a good book, or just lounging with family and friends, your sunroom or porch enclosure can be the perfect space for outdoor relaxation and entertainment.
