How Danielle Chiprut transformed an empty sunroom into a cozy sanctuary

A fabulous makeover is something that we can never get enough of. Pros are skilled at creating design magic, whether turning a tired bathroom into something beautiful or giving a bedroom a new look.

We’re sharing the best Makeover of the Week before and afters to give designers a chance to show off their favorite makeovers. Make sure to consider these ideas when you renovate.

Designer Danielle Chiprut of the Danielle Rose Design Company says that her clients recognized the sunroom’s potential after moving into their 1917 Colonial home. My goal was to transform this bonus room into an oasis where they could enjoy the beautiful views and the sun. This was the perfect escape from lockdown, completed in January 2020.

Chiprut says the room was filled with natural sunlight, but the wall paint was peeling, and the overhead lighting was poor. The original windows and molding were also in disrepair, and the room did not serve a purpose. Due to the sunroom’s narrow and long layout, I was challenged to create a functional floor plan.

Chiprut states that the goal was to create a space where clients could relax and read a book in a comfortable lounge chair. “Shades in cream and gray are paired together with organic textures. Vintage-looking brass and glass lighting fixtures replaced the old overhead lighting. To increase the flow of the room, sliding glass doors were installed. A small table with two tops in the corner of my sunroom allows my clients to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning sunshine.

The color theme for A soothing palette of soft grays and sandy creams creates a serene aesthetic.

Floor: The original hardwoods were refinished with a medium brown stain. A natural handwoven rug made of jute adds warmth to the space.

Molding The crown molding and diamond wall detailing were restored and painted.

Walls To brighten the room, the walls were painted light grey (Passive by Sherwin Williams). The exposed brick was also restored and painted in a soft Sherwin Williams (Snowbound by Sherwin Williams).
