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.
