When choosing the floors for your sunroom, you must take into account outside temperatures, the flooring in the rest of your house, and if you want it to feel more like a screened-in patio, or more of a bonus room. The point is, there are many flooring options for your sunroom, but these are some of the best, as they take into account house design, cost, and the temperature of the sunroom.
If you want to have your sunroom, feel less like a patio, and more like a true “room,” consider hardwood flooring. Hardwood floors are extremely easy to maintain. However, something to note is that wood expands and contracts with heat and cold, so keeping the temperature of your sunroom relatively consistent is key. Hardwood comes in a variety of styles and finishes, and is extremely versatile, making it an appealing choice for a sunroom that can also serve as a bonus room.
Vinyl flooring is another appealing sunroom option. Vinyl flooring has backing, a design layer, and two protective layers, making it damage resistant and a desirable choice for a sunroom. Vinyl is also water and scuff-resistant, a must if you have animals or small children. Vinyl can appear to look like stone or wood, if you’re looking for “neutral” flooring, and similar to hardwood, comes in a variety of styles and finishes, making it an attractive flooring option. One thing to note is that vinyl does not hold up under extreme temperatures, and can melt, making it important to maintain the temperature of your sunroom.
While stone tile requires more upkeep, as they need to be sealed with sealant in order to maintain its quality, it works in sunroom as it maintains the temperature during the summer and winter. Furthermore, they’re not slippery, and are also fairly durable. Stone flooring is also unique, and makes a beautiful addition to any room, as it comes in a variety of materials such as marble, granite, and limestone.
