The Sunroom is DONE-ish

Alternate titles for this post could be “All White Everything” or “My Happy Place” or possibly “The Never Ending Story” would be more appropriate, but no matter what you call it, we are about 90 percent done with the sunroom!

A room filled with furniture and a large window seat

It got several coats of fresh white paint last week and it feels so bright now! Even on this freezing rainy day.

I would love more white walls in my house, but the Mr. is not as crazy about my “paint all the things white” attitude. I compromise in most of our house, but the sunroom was all mine. MINE, ALL MINE! :)

A sunroom filled with windows

This is my all white everything room, walls, trim, ceiling, even the floors. Luckily the Mr. loves it too, now that it’s done.

Remember these gorgeous Armstrong floors?

White Washed Wood Flooring

They look so beautiful now that the trim is finished and painted. I’m so in love with them! You can read my post HERE on how easy it is to install your own.

White Washed Laminate Flooring

Now I know some of you may be in the Mr.’s boat and not crazy about my all white room, but don’t worry, I’ll be bringing in plenty of color with accessories to offset the white.

Starting with the window bench cushion, can I tell you how much anxiety/indecision I’m having picking out a fabric in here? UGH, didn’t realize I was such a upholstery commitment phobe…

If any of you have a favorite fabric source, please share it with me, I’d love to know! I’m leaning toward blue stripes…

So, things to finish still besides furniture etc…

We are missing the glass windows in the side transoms going into the living room.

The outside still needs some work too, we are missing a section of the roof, some siding, and shutters on the back of the house. BUT good news we found the right roofing material hurrah! So that should be finished up soon too.

All in all DONE-ish pretty much sums it up!

  1. So beautiful!!! I am looking to do something very similar and turn our screened in patio into a sunroom! I love those windows and have been looking for ones that open like those. What kind did you use?

  2. I love how you have the contrasting wood floors. We were thinking of doing this but couldn’t find any photos of it being done….thank you for that ;)
    Do you happen to remember the color name and type of Armstrong floors you used? Our dining room and family room is done in a similar dark wood and we wanted to do this in the kitchen as well as our sunroom.

  3. I love your sunroom. Can you tell me the width of the entry. And what is the depth of the room from the entry to the windows? I would have never thought to face the couch like that.

  4. Beautiful room! We have a house in northern Mi and this room is inspo for me! We are adding an addition. Do you know dimensions of your sunroom?

  5. Can you share what floors these are? I love them and this is exactly what I am looking for in my sun room.

  6. Could you tell me the style #, color and size of the Armstrong flooring? Is it laminate wood or tile? I love it and want it in our bathroom.

  7. Beautiful! We are in the very first state of adding a sunroom to our home. Are you putting doors between the sunroom and main living area? If yes, what are you doing. I see the glass panels.
    Is the sunroom heated?

  8. The sunroom looks awesome! We are starting a very similar project, do you have any information on the windows, brand, size etc.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Tara it’s 14 x 14 not sure on the windows but just fill the 14 ft up with windows and you should be good :) the ceilings are 9 ft. Good luck!

  9. I too love all things white! Can you share the paint brand and name? The bright white paint I used to use was discontinued and I’ve been on the hunt for a new one. Thank you!

  10. Beautiful room – would love to sit there and look at the lake. Where did you get the baskets??? Looking for those too. Thx

  11. Hello Kelly! I love all white too. I get a piece of furniture and paint it white. I see a wall and paint it white. But my Hubby is not an all white guy at all. He loves bright and colorful. Our compromise is color but subdued neutral color. I can live with that. Our living room is a blue, grey, green depending on the lighting and I LOVE it.

    Anyway, fabric source: Sarah Richardson. She has partnered with Kravet (?) and has her own coordinated fabric collection and they scream lakehouse!! They are pricey but I believe oh so worth it. Another but even mega pricier option is Schumacher fabrics. They are simply stunning. I have also heard that there are companies you can send fabric to and have it laminated into oilcloth if you want it wipeable.

  12. Hi Kelly,
    Love love love your sunroom. We just purchased our dream property on a lake and I am in the processes of designing our last home with a SUNROOM and also a screened porch. I just love the look of your room and the white!
    Recently I came across a GREAT fabric website. Here is the link:


    Lots of fun fabrics and they also will do custom sewing. Looking forward to seeing what you decide upon.
    I so enjoy your blog!

  13. Fabulous!!! I agree with more neutral on the cushions if they are more
    Permanent. But I’m sure whatever you do will look amazing !!

  14. I love all white!! It’s clean. Too many people are scared of white. I would even do a white couch! Looove it!!

  15. Ok, even if my retirement dream doesn’t come to be (a lakeside home), I would love this all seasons room. It is just beautiful Kelly. I vote that you stay neutral on the seat cushion as well, that way you can use accent pieces to be your pop of color. Can’t wait to see how you will finish the room out.

  16. I have to tell you I love the all white look for this room. You really enjoy the views and those gorgeous windows. Can’t wait to see it finished.


      1. What kind of door do you have going into your sunroom? French doors or sliding doors? We’re doing a sunroom soon off my kitchen and I was wondering. Your sunroom is beautiful.

  17. Absolutely Gorgeous. Yes ,I could see myself sitting out there listening to the birds singing and just relaxing reading a magazine or good book while having my morning coffee
    As for cushion color;(now this is just me) but I would use a natural color; tan or maybe a cream color and then come in with ‘pop ‘of color using orange, blue, teal, yellow, greens, etc. Like bringing some of the outside colors , inside

  18. I am an “all white room lovin” kinda gal too!!!!
    So GEORGOUS, great job!
    Can you tell me what white paint you used?

  19. Oh.my.word. Kelly this is AMAZING!!!! I would just want to lie down in the middle of the floor and soak it all in. LOL! Would that be weird if I came over and laid down in the middle of your beautiful room? ;-)
    Love it girl!!

  20. My favorite fabric source is fabric.com I just purchased ten yards for new valances in my kitchen. The fabric was $50 a yard from a local store for just $9.95 a yard at the fabric.com I have an amazing local lady doing my sewing if you need a source for that too!

  21. Love it! Just a thought on the fabric for the bench, it would most likely be something that you won’t be able to change as easily as a pillow, so I would go more neutral with your fabric and use your pillows & beautiful throws for color on the bench. Just a humble opinion. Love your style!

  22. Lovely! Give me the dimensions on the window bench, Please.
    How thick is the lumber used? Gotta have one!

  23. LOOK at those windows!!! Holy smokes, lady I’m totally in love! With every update of this sun room that trip to MI is getting more and more likely ;) well done, Kelly!!

  24. I love it all white! Great job girl;) What about a pretty natural (light cream/really light beige to contrast the white and tones in the floor) color duck canvas for the bench cushion with stripped and textured pillows so that you can rotate seasonal items easily yet still achieve the lake/coastal charm you like. :)

  25. My Mr. is the same way about white. I would really love a white kitchen, but that’s a “no” since we both love to cook. Maybe we could compromise elsewhere too. :)

      1. Hello, I’m in the process of renovating and I have been looking for ideas inspiration and came across your gorgeous sunroom. I’ve been looking for those woven wicker baskets, do you mind sharing where yours are from??
        Thank you ??

        1. Hi Maura this post is a few years old now but the baskets were from Pottery Barn. Not sure if they still carry them? Thanks!

          1. Just curious about your windows – what size were they, do they have screens built in, and where did you buy them?
