One way to get some sun without prickly heat on your skin is by soaking up some rays in your own sunroom. Even though next summer is almost a year away, it would be best to get started on your sunroom construction as soon as possible because it will be much harder to schedule it during peak construction season.
Renewal by Andersen® – Brainerd (Better Living Concepts), your trusted sunroom and aluminum patio awnings installer, provides design tips to help you in this regard.
Use Wood Furniture
Refrain from using plastic or metal furniture in your sunroom because it has the tendency to trap excess heat from the sun. You’d have to cool it down before using it, which would be a big inconvenience. Choose wooden furniture instead.
Make Room for Imagination
Do you find it difficult to get drinks for guests from your kitchen? Leave space in your sunroom for a mini bar. Do the kids enjoy spending time in the sunroom? Make some space for an indoor play area. The sunroom is a versatile place with a lot of uses, so don’t be afraid to be flexible and leave a little room for recreation.
Select Neutral-Colored Flooring
Stone and tile flooring are a better choice for sunroom design than soft flooring materials like carpets because they help keep the floors cooler during the dog days of summer. Keep in mind that your flooring should have neutral colors since bold hues do not agree with natural light. Instead, add a splash of color with your choice of decorative throw pillows and canvas patio awnings.
Create a Whimsical Garden
A sunroom is a great place for growing flowers and plants. They won’t be at the mercy of the elements outside, but they still have full access to sunlight. You can adorn your garden with potted plants and garden decorations to bring you closer to nature and the outdoors.
