With fall on the horizon and cooler temperatures ahead, there’s never been a better time to relax in the comfort of your home’s sunroom. You can leave the patio furniture cushion covers to do their job outdoors while your family spends some quality time in the most unique room in the house, and there’s a world of inspiration for you to draw from to spruce it up just in time.
The most pragmatic way to give your sunroom a refresh is to start from the ground up- literally. You may not pay too much attention to the floor of your sunroom, but the fact of the matter is that working with this one feature of your sunroom can produce some pretty amazing results.
Whether your sunroom boasts hardwoods, tile, or something different altogether, the possibilities are endless when it comes to giving your flooring new life without the expense of tearing it out and putting in a new one.
So, before you make any decorative decisions, it’s crucial that you give the floor a thorough cleaning. Move everything out, from lamps to sectional covers, to make room for a much-needed deep cleaning.
Once everything is spick and span, your floors will be ready for rugs. Adding rugs or carpet to your sunroom has a number of benefits, from sound insulation to heat retention that you’ll be grateful for in the upcoming cold season. And don’t neglect aesthetics when choosing a rug: color coordinate with your patio furniture cushion covers to aesthetic cohesiveness.
Jolly Green Goodness
After you’ve properly prepped your yard for the upcoming big chill, it’s the perfect time to consider bringing the outside in with the help of some sunroom greenery. With the help of some planters and roller shades, maintaining an indoor garden is a simple task that will transform your sunroom into a lush escape.
You don’t have to have an expert green thumb to keep your indoor plants in tip-top shape. In fact, many indoor plants such as spider plants and ponytail palm are so low-maintenance that gardening enthusiasts joke that they are impossible to kill.
Adjustable roller shades are essential for providing your houseplants with the proper amount of sun, so be sure to have some installed to reap both practical and aesthetic benefits.
Adding shades and curtains to a sunroom can make a world of difference in the design scheme and functionality of your indoor lifestyle area. Whether you opt for gauzy curtains or heavy drapes, there’s no way you can go wrong with these home decor staples.
If your sunroom windows are bare, it’s wise to take thorough measurements before ordering custom curtains. Take the time to consider all the factors you desire in a window covering, from the obvious like aesthetic appeal to more practical concerns, such as how well they will properly insulate your sunroom from the upcoming cold.
Transitioning into autumn means it’s time to break out the fuzzy socks and warm sweaters from storage. This coziness prep should extend to your sunroom as well, where you and your family can put the cover for sofa protection to the side and relax on a chilly Autumn night.
Stock up on thick blankets, comfortable pillows that match your patio furniture cushion covers, and any other accessories that help to create an inviting, cozy environment. Having these comfy accessories on hand is especially useful if you entertain guests often so you can become the coziest host with the most.
Home Office Haven
Working from home has reached new heights in popularity and is a trend that’s likely to stick around for a good while. With that in mind, now is the perfect opportunity to make the most of your sunroom by transitioning it into a sunny space for working from home.
First you need to decide how much of your sunroom you want to dedicate to an office, whether it be one corner or the entire room. This will help you determine how to best integrate pieces such as desks, chairs, and file storage.
There are plenty of other small details that should be taken into consideration before moving into your new office. Is the wifi connection strong enough in your sunroom to support remote work? Are there a sufficient amount of plugs available, or will you need to implement a power strip? Once these issues are ironed out, you’ll be ready to start your sunroom work days on the right foot.
The key to keeping your sunroom’s aesthetics fresh and appealing lies within coordination. Ensuring that the textiles found in the sunroom, be it sectional covers, dining set covers, or the aforementioned curtains, match the rest of your home’s design scheme will create synergy between the spaces.
There’s never been a better time to implement a seasonal color scheme throughout your home, the sunroom included. Autumn inspired shades such as oranges, golds, and reds help to bring the vibrant shades of the changing leaves right into your home. You can even customize a cover for sofa coordination by adding a monogram that matches any personalized accessories found in your home.
