Nothing says summer quite like an evening spent relaxing in your sunroom. However old floors, faded prints or matted carpet can turn your staycation into a homeowner’s nightmare. Sound familiar? Maybe its time to start looking at new flooring options.
When picking out new flooring options, it’s important to think how much sunlight and moisture your flooring will be exposed to and if you use your sunroom as your main entry into your home. Luckily, there are plenty of incredible sunroom flooring options to fit every lifestyle and budget due to today’s technology.
Carpet is a great choice for creating a cozy low maintenance sunroom. Indoor/outdoor carpets are especially resilient, and UV protected. Carpet is also a good option for keeping your floor at a comfortable temperature since it stays relatively cool during the summer evenings while still holding heat in the winter. If you use your sunroom as your main entry into the home, it will require more maintenance to remove snow and dirt that has been tracked in.
Carpet is the most cost-efficient flooring option.
Ceramic tile is one of the most versatile options for your sunroom. Tile is low maintenance and has a scratch and water-resistant surface that is easily cleaned. This is a great choice for high traffic sunrooms.
However, because tile is naturally energy efficient, it can hold high levels of heat/cold when exposed to the outdoors, which can be a bit shocking on bare feet. Choosing a light-colored design can help reduce this issue in the summer and adding a heated floor system can help create a relaxing sunroom all year long.
LUXURY VINYL PLANK/TILE
Luxury vinyl plank (LVP/LVT) are a popular option for sunrooms. In the past few years technology has improved resulting in a rise in popularity due to the extreme durability of the stone core composites (SPC). LVP/LVT gives you the stylish appearance of real stone or hardwood at an affordable price. Additionally, their water-proof design makes them easy to maintain despite the potential moisture levels during humid seasons.
