Sunrooms are becoming increasingly popular as people desire a deeper connection with nature. A sunroom or enclosed porch can be used as additional living space for you and your family. It can be a quiet getaway for yourself or an entertainment zone for your friends.
However you may use a sunroom, there is one thing that consistently matters across the board: making a statement. We all have to admit, there is just something inspiring about having a space that is beautifully put together.
Today, bold colours and simple designs are what’s in. A simple clean look allows you to give your space an updated feel while having bold colours allow you to express your style… loudly.
Check out these three ideas that are trending in outdoor living decor right now:
1. ADD SOME GREEN.
Bring the outdoors in by adding a few plants or a vertical garden to your sunroom. A benefit of a 3-season porch is the ability to view the beauty of the outdoors without necessarily having to deal with the uncomfortable temperatures and pests. Adding some green here and there brings nature inside.
Plants promote good health, positive energy and, if you pick the right kinds, contribute to keeping your air clean! Cacti and succulents are a hot pick at the moment. They are low maintenance and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to match your liking.
2. Mix it up
In addition to simple designs and bold colours, this year textures and patterns are making a comeback. The days of matchy matchy have since left and now it’s about bringing together unique and sleek pieces that meld together beautifully. The key to making this work is to identify a theme and colour palette (no more than 3-5) in the room. Once you have done that, don’t be afraid to start mixing and matching pieces, patterns and textures.
3. Make it a part of your home
Your unique personal style will determine the theme for your sunroom. Most importantly the space should fulfill your needs and wants. Focus on creating a space that feels like it is a part of your home and not just an add on. Use elements, colours, and patterns that already exist within and around your home to create a seamless transition from your home to your sunroom.
Make a statement with your sunroom this year by adding some green. Also, shy away from traditional designs and intentionally make connections between your outdoor living space and the rest of your home.
