If sunny beaches are your flavor, consider a coastal theme for your sun room interior and create your own private beach getaway. Aquatic and sandy colors will pull off the look and your favorite beach souvenirs will round out the décor.
Dark colors will not only seem incongruent with the abundance of sunlight, they will also fade with constant UV ray exposure – bright colors are typically the way to go in a sun room. Whites, bright yellows, greens, or turquoise are popular choices as they help make the most of the available sunlight and enhance the outdoor feel. Whitewashed furnishings will also look right at home here and bear no risk of fading color.
Staying minimal with the furniture will give a sunroom more of an outdoor feel by keeping the space open. Even if you do not intend to walk around the sun room much, nature tends to be much less crowded than our usual living spaces. Keep this in mind when furnishing – less is often more.
Though we may find ourselves separated from our favorite outdoor retreats in our daily lives, sun rooms provide an opportunity to bring the retreat home. Plants and small trees make great sun room decorations for those with a love of foliage. Flowers are also a great way to bring color into a sun room if you find your color scheme lacking pizazz.
Unabated sunlight can be a bit overbearing, so it is also a good idea to think about exercising some control over the light you let into a sun room. One of the best ways to mitigate here is by using window tint. This will block UV rays, protecting your skin and preventing fading of your interior colors. It will also regulate indoor temperature by blocking heat in the summer and preserving heat in the winter, which is a big benefit for sun rooms.
Blocking the UV rays to some extent will open up color options since fading will be less of a worry. You can use more neutral bases and create a flexible decorating space that can change with the seasons. When you need the interior to be brighter, laying a bright rug down is a good option as it will reflect light upward.
