There is nothing like enjoying the great outdoors unless you’d rather enjoy it from a climate-controlled space that lets you watch the splendor of each changing season – from a warm and comfy space. Including a sunroom into your new home is an excellent first step to watching spring come alive; soaking in the summer rays while staying cool; basking in the strong colors of fall, and enjoying the beauty of a winter landscape from a cozy corner of your home.
But once you have the perfect four-season room to enjoy, how can you transform a renovation into the kind of space that everyone wants to retreat to? It’s all in the way you decorate it! Here are a few tips:
Let the Light Shine!
You’ve built that sunroom to – well – let the sun in. So why cover those beautiful windows with shades and curtains? Sure, you may need shades during certain times of the day to alleviate glare and keep your new room cool but stay away from thick heavy draperies and floor to ceiling shades. Instead, opt for the lightest fabrics and motorized shades that can be easily adjusted throughout the day. Remember, this is one room that you want to keep open and airy!
Comfort is Key
It doesn’t matter what your planning to use your new space for (family gathering, a play area, an at-home office, or just a place to relax); you are going to want to make it comfortable. This means using furniture that everyone can really sink into. Be sure to choose pieces that are both comfy and durable. Wicker is an excellent choice for sunrooms. They can handle a lot of abuse and tend to offer an inviting ambiance that screams, “sit and stay awhile!”
Add Pops of Color
Sunrooms are meant to offer a relaxing place to enjoy the outdoors without actually being outside in all types of weather. With so many windows and light bursting through, they make an excellent place to play with color. Adding pops of brighter hues than you would typically use can be both inviting – and fun. If you are a bit shy about adding a turquoise accent wall, add some color with a hue-filled rug, pillows, or other accent pieces. You may be surprised at how a few select pieces of color can change the feel of the entire space.
Bring the Outdoors In
No sunroom home design is complete without bringing a touch of nature inside. This includes plenty of potted plants and flowers. Whether large or small, adding plants to your new sunroom is bound to make the space more inviting.
