Sunroom Flooring Options

A sunroom expands your living space and gives you a pleasant area to rest, relax and entertain. One of the best parts of adding a sunroom to your home is the ability to customize the new space — including selecting your favorite from among sunroom flooring options.

The best flooring for a sunroom depends on your personal taste and how you want to use your sunroom. To help you get started in thinking through customization opportunities, here’s a look at some of the most popular sunroom flooring ideas and materials:

  • Concrete: Traditionally, concrete has served as the simplest and least expensive of all sunroom flooring options. But, today, you can turn a simple concrete floor into something more interesting and elegant by adding stains, decorative stamping or colorful paint. Concrete flooring for your sunroom is certainly durable and slip resistant, though it can make your sunroom colder during winter months.
  • Tile: Tile is another durable, low-maintenance option for your sunroom floor. There are many different tile options and styles to choose from, which means you can choose tile that matches your vision for what a sunroom can be. Tile is humidity- and scratch-resistant, though it can also make a sunroom colder than other types of flooring.
  • Hardwood: Hardwood is perhaps the most visually attractive choice from among sunroom flooring options. As an added bonus, hardwood flooring helps your sunroom stay cool during the hottest months of the year. Hardwood may require more maintenance than concrete and tile, but the right hardwood flooring for your sunroom can perform durably for years to come.
  • Laminate: Laminate sunroom flooring options can provide the appearance of hardwood at a fraction of the cost. Laminate flooring is available in a range of styles, and it’s easy to install. The drawback to laminate is that it isn’t as durable as other flooring options.
  • Carpet: If you’re eager to use your sunroom during the coldest months of the year, consider carpet. Carpet is going to keep your sunroom warmer than other flooring options. Of course, carpet is also available in various colors and sizes, and it’s relatively affordable when compared to other choices. Carpet does stain easily if your sunroom is highly trafficked, and it can wear down more quickly than tile, concrete, hardwood and other sunroom flooring options.
  • Stone: A stone floor in your sunroom provides the feel of a blended indoor and outdoor space. Stone is a durable solution that requires little maintenance, though you may find that a stone floor in your sunroom requires a larger upfront investment than other options.
