With the many visitors that parade through when you buy a house, our space which won the popular vote and “most likely to succeed” was the sunroom.
We are fans of it too. I would love to get this room up and running because 1) so great for entertaining, especially guest with young children and 2) the sunshine.
Our living room’s only light source is from the sun porch’s sliding door. With it being totally covered, the living room is getting very low light. Like, need-lights-on-all-day low light. If we have to pay the price in living room lighting, I want to be able to enjoy my vitamin D in the sunroom three seasons a year.

I like my outdoor spaces to be minimal and weather friendly. When I see rugs or cushions on a deck, I immediately envision them as completely faded and water damaged after the first rain. Maybe people know secrets I do not, but I prefer to stick with materials that are very sturdy to the elements. (Weather, and also children).
