Many homeowners invest in sunrooms to flood their homes with beautiful, natural light. But the job isn’t done once the addition is built. These bright spaces require thoughtful styling to reach their full potential as relaxing retreats.

Four Decorating Ideas for Turning Sunrooms into Bright and Relaxing Spaces

The good news is you don’t need an interior design degree to create an inviting sunroom. At G&S Contracting, Inc., we are privy to several smart décor decisions that can transform your newly installed sunroom from drab to fab. Here are four simple ideas to get those creative juices flowing:

  1. Use Reflective Colors. When it comes to sunrooms, the motto “the brighter the better” always holds true. Reflective surfaces will bounce light around, making the space feel airy and open. Therefore, use reflective colors like whites and pastels on walls, furniture, and accents. For pops of color, add throw pillows, area rugs, or plants.
  2. Add Some Plants. Speaking of plants, incorporating greenery in sunrooms is a plus. Not only do plants enhance aesthetics, but they also improve air quality. Choose low-maintenance varieties that thrive in sunlight and complement your color scheme. Furthermore, clustering plants in corners is an easy way to create a pleasing composition.
  3. Choose Low-Height Furniture. When selecting furniture, opt for low-profile, lightweight pieces. This maintains open sightlines and allows sunlight to filter through unencumbered. Plus, smaller-scale furniture prevents overcrowding the space. Add splashes of texture with wicker, rattan, or woven accents.
  4. Consider Window Treatments. Although the main purpose of sunrooms is to let in natural light, it’s also worth noting that you won’t always need or want it. Window treatments, like breezy curtains or adjustable shades, provide privacy and control sunlight when needed. They make it easy to ensure natural lighting is within comfortable levels throughout the day.
