It may be beautifully adorned with aluminum or canvas patio awnings, but if your open porch no longer serves your needs, why not consider converting it into a sunroom? With the right design, a sunroom allows you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without leaving your home, making it a great option for climates that experience long, dreary winters, like Minnesota.
In today’s post, we share tips on how to make your sunroom more functional:
Desks and Chairs – The amount of natural light that sunrooms admit can create an inspiring environment for a budding writer or a seasoned artist. Sunrooms also make a great place for a home office. Pick out a desk and chairs that complement your home’s design and you’re well on your way to creating the ideal studio or home office.
Curtains and Shades – Window treatments are critical in a 4 season sunroom, particularly during hot months when you want to control the amount of natural light coming into your home. Pick a color and style that suit the other design elements of the space.
A Large Table – If you intend to use the sunroom for entertaining, you can turn it into a unique dining area by investing in a large table for the area. When aiming for a rustic-looking sunroom, for example, pick a large wooden table that can double as additional dining space or as a buffet table and is spacious enough for a spread that all your guests will enjoy. Don’t forget to add more seating, as well.
