Sunroom Makeover

This is the current state of our sunroom.

Recently we had some water damage occur in the space due to some undetected wood rot and unusual high rain fall. When we purchased our place, the previous owners had installed ugly commercial grade carpet in the sunroom. I always hated it and wanted to tear it out but had other areas of the house that took priority. Since the water damage, we now have the perfect opportunity to improve the look of the space.

Originally, we had planned to remove the carpet and stain the concrete floor. However, once we removed the carpet we discovered layers of glue from various floors installed over the years. It was decided that tile would be the best option.

I'm so indecisive when it comes to my own house. I keep bringing more tile samples to chose from. Here are two we are currently deciding between.

I like the contrast of the slate color next to our wood floors. Here is a close up of the tile on the right. As you can see it has some brown swirled in it. We would use the larger 21x21 tiles.

Then I came across this one which I think maybe the one but need to pick up the sample to make sure it looks good in the sunroom's lighting.


The walls will be painted a warm shade of white. Underneath the window I plan to put this daybed I own, which will be reupholstered in an off white outdoor fabric for durability.


This is what I am thinking so far.

If you follow us on Instagram than you have seen the beautiful Batik pillows that I recently received. I plan to pair them with black and white striped pillows. Add a jute rug and replace the sliding glass doors with French doors. The room can get pretty warm so ceiling fans are a must. The existing ugly fans will be replaced with the pretty black one on the moodboard. It is hard to tell from the moodboard but the blades on the fan are woven. I didn't show you the other side of the sunroom, as it is even scarier looking right now. It houses my little art studio. Pics to come later. I will keep you updated as we progress. In the end I may choose a totally different tile.

Which tile do you like the best?
