You’ve finally added that sunroom installation to create the home of your dreams. Decorations can make the room feel truly complete. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you begin looking at furniture and knick-knacks to adorn the new space.
How to Decorate Your New Sunroom Installation
1. Designate a Purpose for the Room
Before you can start adding furniture, determine how you plan to use the new space. Will it be a lounge area for the entire family or a solo retreat for your hobbies or work? Do you plan to entertain guests? Maybe it will be a catch-all room and change for whoever’s using it. Once you know these details, you can pick out the best furnishings for the room’s intended use.
2. Pick Sun-Resistant Materials
Your sunroom is going to be a haven for natural light. Choose furnishings that won’t fade, crack, or discolor after a year or two of exposure to the sun. Wicker, rattan, and bamboo furniture are particularly suited to long-term sun exposure. If you prefer upholstered items, be sure to pick ones that have been treated to withstand UV rays. You can also coat pieces with an outdoor, UV-resistant varnish.
3. Blend the Indoors & Out
A sunroom provides a unique approach for inviting nature into your home. Subtly incorporate natural and earthy elements by blending them with pieces that resemble your interior design aesthetic. For instance, wooden chairs and tables should use colors found on your interior furniture or walls. This will create a seamless transition across the entire property. You can also add hanging plants, potted Meyer lemon trees, and other greenery to further blur the boundary between your garden and your home.
4. Create Zones
If your sunroom installation is rather large, you can get more use out of it by dividing it up into separate zones. For instance, tie together furniture for lounging and entertaining with a specific color or pattern and coordinate them around a rug. On the other side of the room, use contrasting colors and separate lighting to indicate this a dining area or maybe a home office.
