Flooring Options to Brighten up a Sunroom

Having a sunroom in your home is one of the best things about owning a home. Generally speaking, most apartments do not come with their own sunrooms, or really with rooms with an abundance of windows. It’s why you need to take advantage of the room by making sure everything in it compliments and enhances this effect, including the floor. 

What Are the Best Sunroom Floor Options?

Hardwood Flooring: Hardly a Problem

The first flooring option for making your sunroom everything you’ve always wanted is hardwood flooring. Yes, hardwood flooring is the first option for many rooms and buildings, and the reason for this is because hardwood flooring is simply the best option for most rooms and buildings. It works perfectly in a sunroom because there are so many different styles and species to choose from. If the sunroom is on the smaller side of things, you can use lighter shades of wood to control how big the room feels. Additionally, hardwood flooring is one of the few flooring materials that you can resurface, which should cut down on any concerns about sun damage the floor might receive, although you can also throw a rug on top of it. A soft species of wood, like pine, would be ideal for a sunroom, since the wood is a lighter shade and it’s softer, just like the room should be. Just be careful to monitor the humidity in the room, especially since Nashville has an already high humidity rate. 

Residential Carpeting: At Home in the Sun

One of the most important aspects of any room, but one like the sunroom in particular, is the comfort level. No flooring material is going to do more for the sunroom in this category than residential carpeting. Carpeting, as you might imagine, is the most comfortable of all the flooring materials. This is partially because the other flooring materials are concerned with other aspects, sure, but you’re not going to beat the feeling of your bare feet stepping from the couch where you’ve been napping or reading for the last hour onto a sun-warmed carpet. If you’re a fitness fanatic or enjoy meditating, residential carpeting is going to give you the support you need to hit your goals while also giving you something soft to land on when you fall.

Vinyl Plank Flooring: A Little Bit of Both Worlds

It might be difficult to make up your mind, but if you want some of both options while also saving a little money at the bank, then Vinyl plank flooring is the answer for you. Like both hardwood flooring and residential carpeting, vinyl plank flooring can be found in an almost unlimited number of styles and options. More specifically, it can be styled to look almost identical to hardwood flooring at a fraction of the cost. Vinyl flooring is also a great deal softer than hardwood flooring, even a softer species of wood such as pine. Many vinyl plank floors have a special finish on them that protects them from sun damage, which is not something you’ll see even with residential carpeting. Overall, it’s a nice compromise between comfort, function, and affordability. 

You should always choose the flooring material with the essential function of the room in mind. With sunrooms, you want something that will be bright, cheery, warm and comforting, which is why you cannot go wrong by picking hardwood flooring, residential carpeting or vinyl plank flooring.
