Decorating Sunrooms

Don't you just love it when you finally have the very thing you so desired and then have no idea what to do with it?  It's enough to make you want to tear your hair out.  For years, all you could think about was sunrooms.  You thought about their shape, their size, and how great it would be to have one.  Now that you finally have one, it's sitting there with leftover furniture and no decorating style going on at all.  You haven't even had people over to hang out there yet because it looks so bad.  Not to worry, all you need are some basic ideas to get you going on having the type of sunroom you have always wanted.

Sunrooms Style Ideas

Sunrooms, just like any other room in your house, can be as ornate or as simple as you wish.  Some people use it as an extension of their inside décor, while others decide to make this unique room of indoor and outdoor use a totally different look.  Let's say, for example, that you and your builder decided on a more formal looking room with cathedral ceiling and elegant moldings.  For this type of sunroom, you might want to consider wrought iron furniture with graceful accents.  You can choose to have it painted white or left in its original color.  Rich, jewel tones are very good for decorating this style of room as well.

It could easily be that you decided to go with the outdoor aspect of the sunroom.  In this type of situation you would be better off picking furniture and accessories from the natural side of life.  Bamboo, wicker, and rattan are all great materials for highlighting this kind of laid back, vacation style room.  Large, lush plants and flowers would be a great addition as well.

You can't let your sunrooms dreams turn to nightmares.  With a little bit of thought and planning, you can have the kind of relaxing oasis you have been looking for.  Take your time, call in the professionals if necessary, and get ready to have the time of your life in your new space.
