Sunroom Decor - Bringing Nature Indoors

A sunroom, when decorated properly, can become a peaceful place to relax, enjoy natural light, and de-stress. Sunlight increases serotonin which boosts your mood and fights depression, so bringing the maximum amount of light into your sunroom and using decor that reflects the outdoors will do wonders for your mental health.


Furniture 

Choose rattan for your seating area. This natural product uses stems from climbing palms and immediately makes your sunroom feel like part of the outdoors. A sofa with an ottoman is the most comfortable. Include a couple of side chairs and small tables where you can place drinks and snacks. Use a rattan mat in front of your seating area to anchor the space.


Fabric 

Decorating your sunroom with colors found in nature will create a calm atmosphere. If you enjoy patterns, opt for seat cushions with colorful flowers or leaves in the design. If you prefer solids, select green, yellow, brown and orange hues. For a modern look, try these colors in light shades. For a traditional look, bold shades work well. Combine the two for a perfect transitional look.

Fountain

Consider adding an indoor fountain to your sunroom. Listening to running water soothes nerves. Imagine enjoying these trickling sounds after a stressful day or as a way to mentally prepare before you leave the house each morning. A water fountain will also add humidity to the room, so the air doesn't feel as dry on your skin.

Foliage

Scattering plants throughout the room will bring nature's beauty indoors even more. Plants help to clean the air which makes breathing easier and relaxes your body. Many plants do well in sunrooms such as orchids, begonias, and peace lilies. You'll enjoy the gorgeous colors and the aroma of living flora around you.



Regardless of the season, looking outside, while you're enjoying aspects of nature inside can change your entire attitude about life. This benefit -- as well as added square footage for your entire family -- can make a sunroom addition a superb choice for any home.

Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
