If you’re fortunate enough to have a sunroom in your home, you may be wondering how you can update it. Here are some ideas that may help you keep it looking and feeling great.
A sunroom can be the go-to place for you to relax. Depending on your climate, however, it’s possible that it can be uncomfortable in the summer. If the sun’s rays are concentrated toward that room it’s likely that it will heat up. Consider installing insulated blinds to help keep the harmful rays of the sun at bay.
The variety of blinds ensures you’ll be adding a pretty style element as well as making you more comfortable in the evening and during the days.
Add comfortable seating
To make your sunroom a true retreat, be sure you have the most comfortable seating possible. This room only needs a couple of chairs and tables so you can splurge a little. Adding plush club chairs just invite you have a little sit and definitely encourages you to unwind.
The stress of every day is starting to take it’s toll on minds and bodies. Having a place to truly unwind and let go is a perfect addition to any home.
Add green plants
Another easy way to freshen up your home is to add some green plants. Plants can brighten up any space and make it feel more inviting. If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry – there are plenty of low-maintenance plants that are perfect for beginners. Cacti, bonsai trees, and Chinese money plants all look great in a sun room. Tropical plants do especially well with all of the sunshine shat pours in.
Science shows that having living plants in our homes actually reduces stress and can elevate your mood. They also naturally clean the air by absorbing toxins and releasing oxygen.
Consider using the space for an office
You may still be working from home and may not have found great space for a permanent office space. Your sunroom can be the perfect solution. Adding window coverings is a must if you want to do this. Your computer screen needs to be free from glare so adding light absorbing curtains can be a great solution.
Add a few lamps and allow some areas of natural light for a combination that will help you feel more at peace while you work.
Don’t be afraid of adding your own style
Finally, making your sunroom reflect your style is the best way to love the space. You don’t have to stick to any traditional ideas of how the room should look. Use your favorite colors and furniture pieces. You can go with a minimalist floor plan with just a few pieces of furniture. Or go with a traditional style with lots of pillows and throws. You’re only limited by your imagination.
Turn your sunroom into your favorite room in the house.
