You don’t have to be an expert interior decorator to make your sunroom look stylish. Usually installed on a timber or concrete foundation, sunrooms have the advantage of being exposed to plenty of natural lighting. Enhancing such a bright and airy space is easy, even if you don’t have a huge budget to work with.
These simple décor tips will make your sunroom feel sophisticated and comfortable.
Play with Colours
Can't decide what colour to use in your sunroom? It all comes down to the type of ambience you're trying to create. For a clean, minimalist look, white or beige tones always looks classically stylish. If you prefer more eye-catching colours, don't be afraid to branch out with brighter shades. Light blue and pastel pink look great in natural lighting, while rich tones like red and yellow will give your sunroom a warm and cosy feel.
Depending on what materials your sunroom is made of, you could embrace the rustic trend by leaving your walls untouched. Exposed brick or timber are ideal for creating that purposely unpolished look.
Have Fun with Furnishings
To ensure your sunroom blends in seamlessly with the rest of your home, don't neglect to fill it with furniture. This part of your property may feel like an afterthought, but furnishing your sunroom is the easiest way to make the most of its style potential.
From outdoor settings to comfortable sofas, you can choose to adorn your sunroom with a range of fixtures. Comfy couches and plush ottomans will make your sunroom feel like it's been built especially for relaxation, offering an escape from the rest of your house.
You could even convert your sunroom into a study with a writing desk and office chair, or an entertaining area. The possibilities are endless.
Go Wild with Greenery
Why not make the most of all that natural sunlight by adding a little greenery to your sunroom? Whether you want to place tiny succulents on the window ledge or create an indoor jungle vibe with towering ferns, plants are the ultimate sunroom accessory.
Just be careful not to scatter dirt all over the floor while potting your plants, and water them regularly to keep the leaves from looking dull.
If you don't have a sunroom yet, there's never been a better time to install one. In addition to providing you with a sheltered outdoor entertaining area, a sunroom can also add value to your property.
