Sunroom Decorating: Summer and Beyond



It's easy to get caught up in all the newest trends; we're all guilty of it. The only problem then is when your brand new trendy couch just isn't "cool" anymore. Here are a few tips for decorating your sunroom this Summer that will allow you to leave it that way for years to come!

Color Schemes: 

  • Soft and subtle base colors allow the natural light from your windows to keep your sunroom bright. Try a pastel color, light gray, beige or eggshell white.  
  • Your primary color will be what is on most of your big pieces, so it's best to choose a color you really love.  
  • Accent colors are where you can go all out! Have fun and just know that these are the ones you can change much easier if you get tired of them later on.  
Writer's picks: A pastel blue base with a medium gray primary color and accents of white, bright blue, yellow, light forest green, and a touch of purple-pink.


Furniture:

  • A comfy couch and a cushioned rocking chair are always an excellent idea for your sunroom. 
  • If you have the space for it, a hammock with a few of your favorite throw pillows on it makes a perfect spot to relax in the afternoon!  
  • For smaller spaces, a medium to large bean bag cushion is another fun option for kids and adults!  
  • Entertaining is made more accessible with a bar cart just big enough for a few glasses and a bottle (or two) of wine. 
Writer's picks: A bamboo couch and rocking chair, a big, fluffy bean bag chair, and lots of throw pillows!

Accent Pieces:

  • At least one area rug is a must-have! Make sure it's something soft enough that you would enjoy walking on often.  
  • Blanket ladders are simple, space efficient, and very cute! No more work than leaning it up against one of your walls to instantly fill a blank wall space, and you now have a charming place to keep all of your throw blankets.  
  • Wall art is one of the places you can have lots of fun. You can easily mix fun, sophisticated, simple, and dramatic pieces all in one space to give a feeling of comfort and happiness for anyone that lounges there.  
Writer's picks: A circle shaped area rug with a simple geometric pattern, a white ladder with bright colored blankets, and colorful pictures of all your favorite things (family, flowers, animals, shapes, etc.)

Whatever you decide to do when decorating or redecorating, make sure to have fun with it and make your space feel like it is truly your own. When it's all said and done, enjoy your new sunroom! You've earned it! Looking for ways to incorporate a sunroom design into your home? See eye-catching designs on Facebook at @Sunroom, on Pinterest @FourSeasonsHP or on Instagram @SunroomsWindows

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

Summer is finally here; a season to be carefree, laid-back, and relaxed, right? If you frequently entertain during the summer months, you may be thinking this time is anything but relaxing! After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


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. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations.

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.
