Creating an indoor/outdoor living space has never been easier. With the rising popularity of sunrooms, homeowners have more options than ever when it comes to designing the space to fit their individual needs. Your new space will allow you to enjoy the best parts of the outdoors while protecting you from the bugs and unfavorable weather that can come along with it. To make the most out of your new sunroom, check out these ten design tips:

designing a new sunroom

Tip #1: Incorporate Bright Colors

Bright colors make any room feel more inviting and energized. Paint the walls of your sunroom bright colors or include colorful decor throughout the space to make your sunroom that much more fun to be in.

Tip #2: Go Simple

Sometimes less is more, and this can be applied to your sunroom in addition to the rest of your home. Avoid overcrowding the space by using a more minimalist design that features a few furniture pieces and simplistic decor.

Tip #3: Install a Swing

Swings aren’t just for kids, they’re for adults too! A casual bench swing can offer the perfect way to relax in your new sunroom.

Tip #4: Use Curtains

If you want privacy in your sunroom or want to keep your space shaded on certain days, having curtains will be a game-changer. Curtains offer a practical way to decorate the space while providing privacy and shade whenever you desire them.

Tip #5: Add Skylights

For optimal sunshine in your indoor/outdoor space, incorporate skylights into the design and make the most of daytime summer sunlight.

Tip #6: Add a Fireplace

Nothing radiates comfort more than a fireplace. Have one installed into your new sunroom to enjoy during those cooler summer nights.

Tip #7: Use Open Shelving

Showcase pictures, decor, plants, and more with open shelving in your sunroom. An additional place to store things is an added benefit to incorporating shelves.

Tip #8: Include a Sliding Door

Get easy access to your front or backyard with a sliding door. On more pleasant days, you can open it up to feel the summer breeze from the comfort of your sunroom.

Tip #9: Get Creative With Lighting

A good design can allow you to use your sunroom both during the daytime and after the sun goes down. Incorporate different types of lighting such as string lights, floor lamps, recessed lighting, and more to illuminate your space.
