Adding a sunroom addition can add a lot of serenity to your home. It’s a place where you can relax with your spouse and have a cup of coffee on the weekends, eat breakfast, read, or just have a good old fashioned stare out into the yard.
Before you get to bask in the rest and relaxation that your new sunroom will provide, you’ll want to make sure it’s a warm and welcoming space. If you’re not an interior decorator, choosing sunroom decor might sound a little stressful. Fear not, we’re going to give you a hand.
These are the top 5 sunroom decor ideas to great your favorite relaxing space.
1. Lots of Flora
What better place to put all of the pots that you’ve got in the house than your new sunroom. The natural light will help all of your plants flourish and they’ll give your sunroom the feel of a greenhouse (with less humidity).
We all know how gorgeous a room teeming with plant life can be, but there are also major mental health benefits to gardening and being around plants. Simply put; plants improve people’s moods.
2. A Reading Nook
There are few things more relaxing than curling up with a good book. You can turn your sunroom into your reading haven by putting a nice wooden bookcase out there next to a nice antique rocking chair or cozy chair.
The beauty of this piece of decor is that it doesn’t have to take up much space in the sunroom. You can literally just carve out one corner and have the rest of the space to do whatever you want with.
You can take your reading nook to another level with a fireplace. Many sunrooms mainly function as a space to gather in the warm summer and spring months, but that doesn’t have to be the case.
Adding an electric fireplace will not only warm up the room in the cooler seasons, but it’ll also make your sunroom a little bit cozier. Just imagine curling up in your favorite chair this winter next to your fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa!
4. Mood Lighting
Since it’s only light out for about half of a 24-hour day, your “sun” room is theoretically not serving a purpose 50% of the time. Install some soft mood lighting in it so that you can spend your evenings drinking wine and having great conversations.
Buy some antique lamps and put up some soft white holiday lights to really set the mood.
5. Breakfast Bar
You should always start each day off right with a hearty breakfast. After all, it’s the most important meal of the day and you’d be remiss to eat it in your kitchen when you’ve got a perfectly good sunroom, fully equipped with a breakfast bar.
A cozy dining set with a drink station and a coffee maker will turn your sunroom into the best breakfast spot in town. After breakfast, you can mosey on over to your reading nook for a few hours, then have some drinks around the fireplace at night!
There Are No Rules When It Comes to Sunroom Decor
These are just a few sunroom decor ideas, but the beauty of adding a sunroom to your home is that there are no rules. You can decorate it however you want, buy whatever furniture and accessories you want, and do whatever you want in it. It’ll be the most versatile room in your house.
