Stunning Sunrooms

Sunrooms tend to be one of the most relaxing rooms in the house. These rooms often have large windows that, on sunny days, fill the room with warmth and light. With panoramic views of your yard, it’s the perfect place to curl up with a good book, work from home on a laptop, or even just take a nap. Check out these ideas for your sunroom inspiration!

 

Depending on the layout of your house, you could have some harsh sunlight at some point during the day. Gauzy curtains can help dilute the bright sun while keeping the room feeling light and airy.

 

Enjoy the outdoors at your comfort level! Decorate your sunroom with flowers and green plants for a natural look all year long!

 

Make your sunroom an extension of your home. Start with a neutral base such as gray or white to make it easy to add in seasonal colors.  Accessories such as pillows and blankets tie in colors you use elsewhere in your home.

 

Save the outdoor furniture such as wooden rockers and whicker settees for the patio. Interior pieces make your sunroom feel like a second living room instead of just another porch.

 

All those windows can make your sunroom feel cold in the winter months. A fireplace or heater and a couple of throws can keep your relaxation room cozy and welcoming all year long.

 

Use a rug to designate a sitting area in a larger sunroom. If your floor is made from a unique material such as a brick or tile pattern, leave the space uncovered and let it speak for itself!

 

Add ambient lighting so you can enjoy your sunroom in the evening as well as the day. Choose warmer, softer lights to minimize the harshness and make your space more welcoming.

 

Instead of an extra sitting room, turn your sunroom into an extra dining room! The open airy space allows you to enjoy views of nature  regardless of the weather outside. Whether it’s hot or cold, humid or rainy, the sunroom is the perfect place to gather for a meal.

 

A white, neutral sunroom allows natural light to bounce around the room, resulting in a brighter space. It’s the perfect canvas to add in a fun color or pattern, and it also pairs perfectly with the greens of the outdoors.

 

If your home does not have a designated “sunroom” but it’s always been your dream to have one, add glass panes to your screened in porch. If desired, upgrade your flooring material and seal any cracks to turn your outdoor space into an indoor one.

 

A sunroom can serve almost any function in your home, from an office or reading room to a dining room or extra patio space. This type of room is essentially a blank canvas and with just a few accessories, can be molded into your dream sunroom!
