Old West Side Sunroom Remodel

Natural light in any home brings about an energetic, warm, and open feeling. To improve the functionality of our client’s Victorian home, Meadowlark saw the advantage of using an existing space and transforming it into something amazing.

The Vision

The old space was poorly insulated and unused in the way the homeowners envisioned. For their sunroom. Our ideas for transforming this space allowed for access to and from the outdoors. It created an open concept with double French doors and making the overall space more welcoming. Adding a screened-in porch and deck also expanded the living space and brings the outdoors in.

Design & Architecture

Schematic Design

Starting with a complete gut and remodel of the existing sunroom, we: added insulation, new windows, new French doors and a direct-vent gas fireplace with built-in window seats. All of this contributed to making the space more comfortable and energy efficient.

  • Double French doors
  • Vaulted ceiling
  • Panoramic window detailing for even more natural light

Design Development

  • Curved Palladian windows
  • Douglas fir ceiling trim
  • Decorative fan for visual interest

The Results

This neglected sunroom received the upgrade it deserved. Not only did it open up a portion of the home,  it beckons to all who enter. The adjacent rooms gain a flourish of natural light, detail, and comfort. Energy efficiency measures also help keep this area of the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, allowing for year-round use with ease.
