We all love those lazy days of summer — lounging at the pool, enjoying meals al fresco, and spending all day outside — but sometimes it’s just too dang hot! Especially in Austin, Texas. On a typical August day, my mind is always torn between two ideas: Should I spend all day outside basking in the sun? Or retreat to my comfy living room to soak up the cool AC? Luckily, sunrooms were invented as the solution to my predicament. They’re the perfect place to enjoy the sun’s rays without breaking a sweat. I love the idea of decking out a sunroom as a dining room, lounge area, or even garden shed. Scroll down to see some of our favorite sun-filled spaces, and let us know which one is your favorite!
