Sunrooms, also known as indoor porches, are a great way of enjoying the sunshine from the comfort of your home when the weather outside is a little on the chilly side. They’re an ideal solution in the UK where warm summer weather isn’t always guaranteed. Normally attached to the side of a house, sunrooms come in all shapes and sizes, but their defining feature is the large windows that allow the maximum amount of light and warmth into the space. If you have a sunroom that you’re not making the most of or are planning on adding one to your home, these sunroom design ideas should help inspire you.
