Enjoying a warm weather retreat like the sunroom is so much more rewarding if it’s not hampered by clutter or out-of-place furniture. Sometime these rooms can get overloaded with the wrong stuff and the next thing you know, your charming sunroom is full of knick knacks and space-eating furnishings. If you want the beauty of a small sunroom back, check out these redecoration tips.
If you have a large couch taking up needed space, replace it with smaller wicker chairs and a vintage table. Rattan furniture also works; it blends in well with exposed wood beams. However, I don’t want to suggest that you can’t have any large pieces of furniture in the room. It’s still okay to have a comfortable chair, like a wicker sofa; just make sure to contrast it with smaller pieces and fewer accessories.
Hardwood flooring combined with a nice area rug is very stylish. Or, you can substitute tile as your flooring choice; either combination works. Throw in a couple tropical plants and some small reading lamps and you’ve got a very cozy bungalow.
Additional decorating tactics can be done to create space in cramped quarters. Use a big tropical plant as a room divider; the optical illusion gives the appearance of a more space. Temperate plants generally grow very well in this room. You can also use your paint palette to open up the room. Blues and greens create a more intense feeling, while browns and tans are more peaceful. Try using lighter colors. It creates a more spacious feeling.
A feng shui style of decorating is the practice of arrangement and placement to promote harmony in one’s life. Putting things in the right places creates space and develops positive chi. In feng shui terms, this means we’re responsible in our lives and we strive for a life that is trouble free.
