Design Ideas for Your Florida Room

Design Ideas for Your Florida Room

The term “Florida room” is a colloquial name given to enclosed porch additions in Florida homes. These porches are also called solariums meaning “place of sunlight.” Essentially, Florida rooms are spaces that let you bring the outdoors, indoors. It’s a way to enjoy the abundant Florida sunshine while still maintaining the comfort of indoor climate control. The natural light makes for a productive space for activities such as reading and artwork and has health benefits for elevating mood, energy and reducing stress.

In addition, a Florida room adds living space to your home and the flexibility of these spaces is another reason for their appeal. Usually, they’re an extension of the main house and are typically positioned in the rear of the home near the kitchen or off the living room.  

There are many ways to best utilize this space to match your needs, personality, and functionality of the rest of your living space. In this blog, we’ll provide ideas so that you can select a use that’s perfect for you. Even if you’re not a Floridian, you can apply most of this information to an indoor/outdoor space in your home.

Ideas for Florida Room Uses:

  • Relaxation/Sitting Area – A comfortable seating area is the perfect use for your Florida room. Add some lounge chairs or a sofa and you’ll have a cozy spot to curl up and enjoy the Florida sunshine, creating the perfect afternoon nap spot! For your morning routine, you could even incorporate a breakfast nook to enjoy your cup of coffee and a healthy breakfast to start your day.
  • Greenhouse – Adding some plants or flowers to your Florida Room is a great way to bring in some color and life. Choose potted plants and flowers that thrive in bright, sunny conditions for best results. Consider a small water feature for additional tranquility.
  • Entertainment Space – If you love to entertain, make your sunroom the perfect gathering spot. Furnish it with a large table and comfortable chairs. You could even build a second cooking island with a wine refrigerator and a wet bar for cocktails. Stock your bar area with your favorite spirits, mixers, and a variety of glasses.
  • Home Office – If you need a space to work from home, your Florida room can be the perfect solution especially if you have room for a full-sized desk, shelving, etc. This idea works well because Florida rooms often have private entrances, should you require a meeting space.
  • Reading Nook – If you love to read, why not create a special reading nook in your Florida room? Add a comfortable chair and some shelves for your books or opt for built-ins and you’ll have a great spot to curl up with a good book.
  • Art Room – With the natural light that Florida rooms afford, many artists find it the ideal room for painting and sketching. Take advantage of this space for ALL your creative projects. From scrapbooking, sewing, and more, you’ll appreciate having your craft supplies neatly organized in your Florida room.
  • Children’s Playroom – Store toys, art and craft supplies, learning activities, and more. Your children will appreciate a dedicated space for all things they like to create and play with indoors. Set up a homework station to establish a routine for completing assignments.
  • Gym & Exercise Set Up – If your space allows, equip your Florida room with lightweight workout equipment and free weights, leaving enough space to actually move around. Having all your workout equipment in one area motivates you to put it to good use. Schedule a time in your day for exercise and make it happen!
  • Guest Room – If you often have guests stay with you, your Florida room can make a perfect guest room. Add a bed and some linens and you’ll have a comfortable space for your guests to enjoy.

Don’t forget to decorate your sunroom to reflect your style and personality. Fill it with your favorite colors, furniture, and decorations to make it truly your own.

Whatever your needs or desires, designing your Florida room is limited only by your imagination and budget. With the previously mentioned design ideas in mind, you can start to create the perfect Florida room for your home. Our team at Rossi Construction would enjoy the opportunity to provide you with an estimate for your Florida room project.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
