Spring Decor and Design Tips For Your Sunroom

Here are some décor and design tips for your Sunroom to make you fall in love with your Sunroom again this spring.

If you have a sunroom, it is probably your favorite spot in your home. The enormous windows offer not only natural daylight and landscape views but a comfortable space to relax and rest. Sunrooms have evolved over the years from traditional screened-in porches. Today, sunrooms are a top priority of choice in both new buildings and historic homes in many regions. They embrace many styles and can include French doors that open onto a deck or patio, and vinyl, brick, wood or aluminum around windows that in many designs ranging from floor to ceiling.

COLOR YOUR WORLD

Making or having a sunroom extension in your home, it is an important decision in selecting the color of the room.
Try adding pillows and accessories that complement the existing decor in your home. Try using a neutral base in the room, even bold neutrals like gray and navy blue can be a great starting point.  Add layers with gorgeous and bold colors in spring and summer to bring home the beach.

FURNITURE IS EVERYTHING

When deciding on furnishing Sunrooms, designers see movement toward interior furniture and fixtures. While the preservation of wicker and outdoor fabrics should be reserved for outdoor spaces. A Sunroom is a great place for comfortable chairs and couches covered with softer or more luxurious fabrics, like velvet, microfibre, and even leather.

CLIMATE CONTROL

Don’t give up the use of your Sunroom just because it’s not summer. Sunrooms are perfect places for TV rooms and reading corners, entertaining and relaxing during the spring. Might we suggest that you can always try out a portable electric fireplace [or heater] and cozy decorative covers for extra warmth on those chillier spring evenings?

FLOORING OPTIONS

Sunroom floors can vary depending on the surface it is being built upon. Choosing the best flooring for your sunroom can ensure that it can receive any application, from tile to laminate or even wood flooring. Area rugs are great for adding texture and color to a room, and can really tie together the decor. Thermal and radiant flooring are other great option to keep your toes warm during cooler weather.

PLANTS & GREENERY

Many plants can thrive in a Sunroom environment. Choose sturdy plants that can handle lots of light. They can really add to the decor of a room while filtering the air naturally. Some great picks of plants for sunroom include African violets and begonias. These plants require little maintenance and produce colorful flowers. Large tropical plant types are great options to add greenery to your sunroom and larger fill spaces.

Your sunroom can be a place of relaxation, an oasis right in your own home. A great new space for you, your family, friends, plants, and pets. No matter how you choose to use your sunroom, with just the right furniture, decor and lighting, you can achieve the room of your dreams this spring.

They’re in! Design Trends for 2017!

If you, like many other homeowners are looking for design inspiration and trends for 2017 to bring into your home, then here at Sunspace of Central Ohio we have you covered! We have the latest trends to bring in to your home and the latest trends to keep out of your home in 2017.

Terracotta

Add a burst of Terracotta tiles to your home. These aren’t your terracotta tiles used in the 80’s, find modern terracotta tiles with a natural matte finish and add a beautiful feature wall to your main living space or a bathroom to add some extra warmth.

Cork

You heard it right! Add a ceiling to floor cork wall in or around the kitchen and use it as a place to pin up posters or fun art your children bring home for you from school. Have some fun with it! Bring it into your home office for a super easy way to keep track of important notes.

Green

Dark green is a very popular color trend right now, bring in a whole green carpet to make a statement or add subtle hints of green throughout each room of your home!

Getaways

We don’t mean literally, create a small area in your home and use it as a getaway to have some alone time or to enjoy a nice cup of tea and a book. Whatever you decide to use it for you are sure to love this area of your home!

What to stay away from

If you have some of these designs already in your home there Is no need to throw it all out the window and start over, try spreading them out and not using as many. Design experts all agree that these trends will be fading out throughout 2017, so you have plenty of time to slowly transition these trends out of your home.

  • Copper, brass & rose gold designs give the feel of trying to hard, minimize the amount you have around the house
  • Marble- this has been a classic design trend for a while, but it’s time for a change
  • Art with Quotes, as many consumers have over done this trend it’s about time for it to be over
  • Subway tiles, they look great and are very affordable, you see them everywhere! Let’s mix things up!

How to Tastefully Decorate your Home or Cottage this Halloween

With your newly installed Sunspace Sunroom you may not want to decorate your home or cottage this Halloween with cob webs and spooky Halloween decorations. We have given you a bunch of new ways to decorate your home this Halloween both inside & out!

Pumpkin Window boxes

This can work for both inside and outside your home, to create this beautiful look for outside pick out some extra medium size to smaller sizes pumpkins and place them in your window boxes surrounded by your other fall plants. To add some Halloween spirit inside your home grab some artificial pumpkins and vines in a wooden box and place it as a center piece in your new Sunroom.

Add a splash of White

Go and get some white baskets and an array of fall planted flowers all in white, grab some extra pumpkins from the pumpkin patch and spay paint them in white leaving a few bright oranges ones to be placed throughout arrange it on your front porch or on your lawn for a beautiful fall arrangement that can stay out all fall.

A Country Home

If your going for more of a rustic look, try this on for size. Grab some hay bales, corn stalks, mums and pumpkins. Create 2 bunches of corn stalks and tie 1 on each side of your railing, then at the bottom of your front steps place your hay bales neatly to either just one side or split them up. Place the bright orange, red & yellow mums on either side of your front steps and scatter them down your walkway (if you have one, if you don’t then one on either side of your door will look just fine.). Finally take the pumpkins and leave them un carved and place them throughout this scene.

Mums are a great fall flower and can brighten up any area you put them in. Decorate your Sunroom this fall and enjoy the outdoors even more while staying warm inside, or show off the new festive decorations in your new Sunspace Sunroom and make all the neighbors jealous.
