Bright, blue furniture and complimentary, striped wallpaper give this traditional sunroom a bright and airy design. A white lantern-inspired pendant light hovers above the dark wooden coffee table and neutral area rug. Two white bookcases flank a window with an interior view.
Four plush armchairs provide comfortable seating in the freshly updated sunroom. The vaulted ceiling is a gorgeous detail that adds great height and contrast to the space. There's even a place to work thanks to the elongated, built-in desk.
To make a room appear to be bigger than it is, paint it the same color as the adjacent room. If you have a small kitchen and dining room, a seamless look will make both rooms feel like one big space. And make a sunporch look bigger and more inviting by painting it green to reflect the color of nature. Another design trick: If you want to create the illusion of more space, paint the walls the same color as your drapery. It will give you a seamless and sophisticated look.
This home's open floor plan leads from the kitchen and breakfast room to a heated sunroom that can be used in any season. A patterned rug anchors a seating area in the sunroom. A large range hood on the stone wall vents smoke, heat and odors from the cooking surface underneath.
