Fall is the perfect time to be looking for gorgeous sunroom ideas so that you can do nothing other than keep pretending that summer isn't actually over at all. Orange, crunching leaves do get us excited – bring on Thanksgiving – but you can still enjoy your sunroom come rain or shine so it's worth investing a little time in this spot. Sip your morning coffee, or entertain the kids, and simply enjoy the feeling of being outside while you're indoors.

So if your sunroom or screened porch is in need of a fall update to get it looking lovely for the colder months, we have rounded up five looks, furniture picks and decor ideas to get you inspired. If you are after more living room ideas (that can all be adapted for sunrooms) then head to our gallery. 

1. Treat yourself to some new sunroom furniture 

If your sunroom needs a complete overhaul rather than a quick update, some new sunroom furniture is a must. You could go for a sofa, but if your space is on the smaller side, we say stick to some stylish armchairs. We love the Kayla Lounge Chair from Wayfair – a little bit rustic, a little bit Scandi they are the perfect slimline shape for a sun-filled room. 

2. Turn your sunroom into a dining nook

How cozy is this little sunroom nook? The perfect spot for breakfast. If your sunroom is an awkward shape, a built-in bench can be the best way to make the most of the space. Pop a small dining table in there too and you have an extra seating area for more casual dining. This Toscana Round Extending Table from Potterybarn is perfect for this kind of space as it's extendable.

3. Make your sunroom more fall friendly with plenty of cushions

If you are just after a quick way to make your sunroom cozier for the colder months, cushions are an easy and inexpensive way to do so. They can also be a good way to start a color scheme or add some new colors into the space. For fall we are loving neutrals and slubby fabrics like linen mixed in with lots of textures. Check out CB2 for loads of lovely soft furnishings to update your sunroom.

4. Make a small sunroom feel more luxe with velvet furniture 

Ah, we can feel the warmth of the sun on our face just looking at this room. The velvet chairs add a touch of luxury to this simple space, and the warm color scheme only enhances the sunniness of the space. These gorgeous chairs are the Finley chairs from West Elm 

5. No sunroom? Turn your porch into one

If you don't have a sunroom, turn your porch into one! Sure you might not want to sit out in mid-winter but for warmer fall days it would be perfect. Copy this idea and hang curtains in your porch to create a cozier almost living room-like feel. Cover your outdoor sofa in plenty of cushions and keep a basket of throws close by.
