Stylish Decor Ideas For Your Sunroom

Posted on: June 10, 2019

Anyone with a sunroom is likely to tell you that it's their favorite room in their home.

Sunrooms let you enjoy natural light without dealing with the elements during the day and provide an excellent place to unwind and relax in the evenings.

Sunrooms are an evolution of the screened in porch, and they allow you to enjoy the views of the outdoors inside, without all of the dirt and debris.

Today, sunrooms are a top priority for most homebuyers no matter what type of home you're buying, whether it's new construction or a historic dwelling.

Sunrooms can embrace just about any style you can dream of but the most common features are french doors that open to a deck or patio, and large floor to ceiling windows.

Also called solariums or conservatories, sunrooms can also have glass ceilings, allowing you to see absolutely everything going on outside.

But don't think you have to live in a warm climate to have a sunroom, because they are often used year round no matter what type of environment you live in.

Whether you're kicked back watching the waves roll in, or snuggled up with hot cocoa watching the snowfall, there's no better place to do it than in your sunroom.

Your sunroom decor and design can be as lavish or minimal as you desire.

Curtains and fireplaces, chandeliers, ceiling fans, and artful wall sconces can add personality and functionality, allowing you to design the sunroom of your dreams.

In the article below, we will talk about several design ideas that will hopefully spark some creative inspiration so you can get started designing your sunroom.

Let There Be Light

There's nothing like a radiant and inviting sunroom that lets you layout and drown in the sun's rays.

It goes without saying that the perfect sunroom lets in the maximum amount of light from all angles, ceiling included.

The sunroom is called a sunroom for a reason; it's supposed to let the sun in.

Floor to ceiling windows and a glass roof will let you enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your home.

Whether you use your sunroom as a formal dining room or a second living area for casual hangouts, a great sunroom will be the most loved room in your home, for both you and your guests.

Even the smallest sunroom can have a huge personality

Make The Most Of Your Small Space

Even if your sunroom is small, you can use every inch efficiently to create a perfect nook for evening cocktails with friends or to unwind alone with a good book.

A mix of furniture that fits just right, a few tasteful decorations, and you'll have an inviting and cozy sunroom of your own.

Your quaint but adorable sunroom will prove to your friends, and maybe yourself, that you don't need a lot of space to add a nice addition to your home.

Is That A Shed Or A Sunroom?

This option is for everyone that just doesn't have the space, or the budget, to add on an expensive addition to their home, but is still craving a sunroom.

Turn a simple shed into the sunroom you've always wanted.

By replacing the siding with screen panels, and adding a fresh coat of paint, that boring old shed can be transformed into a place you can spend your entire day.

Add some string lights on the interior or exterior, a few indoor plants, a rug and some comfortable chairs, and your backyard oasis is complete.

Go With The Flow

If your sunroom feels like an extension of your home, then create a seamless flow.

If your sunroom feels like it's part of your living room instead of a standalone room, going with the flow and keeping the same style and feel of your living room can really expand your space.

It will make your home feel larger without adding any additional square feet.

Use an archway door to create separation without making it feel closed off, and add a whimsical touch like a hanging bamboo swing to give the space its own unique personality.

Take Your Office Outside

This is perfect for everyone who makes their living at home.

Take your office out of the dark and move it to the sunroom to make those long work days much more enjoyable.

There's nothing better than looking up from your work and enjoying the sites and sounds of nature.

Instead of suffering under fluorescent lighting, you will enjoy the natural glow of the sun's light.

So grab your desk chair and your router, and create a sunroom office space that will ensure you never want to commute to work again.

Enjoy The Hammock Life

What's the only thing better than having a hammock in the backyard?

Having one in your sunroom!

The best sunrooms bring the best of the indoors and outdoors together, and there's no better way to do that than with a hammock.

Every time you lay down in the hammock in your sunroom, you'll feel like you're on vacation.

So feel free to splurge on an indoor hammock, and begin to enjoy the perks of it all year.

Spoil Your Guests

If you want to give your guests an experience to remember, or if you're just short on space, turning your sunroom into a guest room is the perfect way to accommodate your friends and family.

Use a built-in window seat that can transform into a guest bed whenever the need arises.

And who wouldn't want to spend the night under the stars?

Include some blackout curtains for privacy, if they don't enjoy waking up at the crack of dawn, and you'll have a sunroom your family and friends will be dying to stay in.

The only problem you'll have is wanting to spend the nights in your sunroom instead of your master bedroom.
