Spring is officially here! Now is the time to start enjoying time outdoors in the welcomed sunshine. A great way to bring this wonderful weather indoors, is by incorporating your brand-new sunroom! You can transform this space by just a few simple changes, making it perfect for your next family gathering or even just a lazy Sunday.
Once you decide what your sunroom will be used as, you can narrow down the décor aspect. Is it intended for extra dining or lounging space? Are you working from home & this will be where you get your work done in a relaxing setting? Will it be a new work-out area, yoga retreat, or even a new She-Shed?
Below are several options to make updates to your space. Most of these are simple changes, from a new theme to upgrading your furniture. Depending on your budget, you can make a significant change! According to Good Housekeeping, you don’t even need to worry about adding lots of extra decorations if it’s not in the budget. Your guests will get A+ views of the landscape outside.
First, decide on a theme for your sunroom. If you’re going for a beachy or nautical theme, just add some wicker furniture, rattan accents, and plenty of blue & white. If rustic is more your style, add a feature wall with some reclaimed wood or even include an indoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows. Keeping things modern to go with the rest of your home is always a popular choice too, says HGTV. Just add a fresh coat of paint on the walls & hang up some contemporary artwork.
Second, decoration can make a big difference. Replace those old chairs with some updated patio furniture in the color scheme that you’re going for. Plush cushions & cute throw pillows can make this a much more visually appealing space. Not to mention more comfortable! Lounge around in a hanging basket chair, no matter what the weather is outside.
If your trying to cut some costs, try spray painting your current furniture something new & exciting. This way you can just focus on accessorizing instead. In one corner of your sunroom, you could add a handy beverage center for impromptu get-togethers. Start with a simple table and outfit it with baskets & trays to hold beverages, snacks, and napkins. Custom sunrooms can really show off your personality & make a memorable impression on your guests.
Third, plants can really make an impact. Plants add life to any room, but they especially help transition a sunroom to an indoor room. Both large potted trees and small potted plants can add touches of color. These should grow well out near the sunshine & your room will smell great too. You can even add an herb garden, which is an added benefit in the kitchen. Another simple idea is to flip over a basket as a side table & top it with one of your plants for a pop of greenery.
All & all, decorating your sunroom can be done in just a few simple steps. It will make you want to spend much more time in a space you love. You can spend a little or a lot, but either way make a great improvement to your home.
