Most sunroom lovers have sunrooms because they adore light and nature. Personally, I can’t seem to ever get enough of either one. I spend most of my time in our sunroom, which is appropriately surrounded with glass walls to let it all in, while I loll around in its splendor. When we installed our bio-ethanol floating fireplace, winter became my favorite season.

Thinking about giving yourself the magical gift of a fireplace right inside your sunroom? Take a look at the ideas below, and you’ll want to rush right out and bring home the flames!

The Complete Sunroom: Sun, Stars & Flames

Embedded ceiling lighting, multiple skylights, wall-to-wall glass, and a gorgeous fireplace provide a tribute to light in this sunroom.There are many types of sunroom fireplaces, so choose wisely. From floor-to-ceiling, traditional wood-burning beauties to ultra-sleek, environmentally friendlier ones, you’ll have plenty of options. Be conscious of the fact that your fireplace will become a focal point in your sunroom. And do your research before you run out the door to shop. Hiring an experienced contractor who understands the building codes specific your area is important as well.

The big white fireplace above, with its large mantle and floor-to-ceiling blocks works well because the contrasting, darker color triangles that surround it balance its visual weight. This space makes for an ideal entertaining room or a quiet space to enjoy a book or just watch the glorious view.
