Probably the one thing that we all look forward to enjoying during summer is the feeling of the sun’s warmth and radiance on our skin, which means getting outdoors to the park and the beach as much as possible. What’s even better is being able to enjoy the long summer days from the indoors as well, by incorporating a window repair into your home’s design as a space where you can enjoy a good book or an afternoon siesta while soaking up the sunlight.
Below are our top picks of stunning sunroom décor ideas to take inspiration from this summer:
The best part about decorating a window replacement is the fact that you can incorporate a lot of comfortable furniture that you wouldn’t typically use in an outdoor space. Think upholstered seats, lavish summer throws and vibrant cushions, as well as uniquely designed nature-inspired coffee tables that take the indoor-outdoor living theme to the next level. You can even install a few electrical outlets so that you can use the sunroom as an additional living room or workspace whenever the weather is nice out.
There are ways to diversify your sunroom so that it can be used interchangeably as a living and dining space all year round. For example, you can customize it with simple additions such as a ceiling fan to cool the space during the summer, or an indoor fireplace to warm things up in winter. If your space is big enough, you can also split the sunroom into an open plan dining and living space at once.
Sunrooms are designed with wall to ceiling glass windows for the purpose of fully allowing you to feel as though you’re outdoors while protecting you from the harsh effects of the elements. However, the full visibility created by this design can also limit your privacy, which is where curtains and blinds come in. Apart from shielding you from complete visibility, shades and blinds can also protect you from direct sun exposure, especially on hot days.
The direction in which you choose to place your window installation depends on a variety of factors including how you’ll be using the space and the area you live in. Generally speaking, north-facing sunrooms typically enjoy partial sun exposure which prevents overheating; south-facing sunrooms get ample sunlight throughout the day; eastern sunrooms get plenty of sunlight in the morning and shade for the rest of the day and evening; whereas western sunrooms start out with shady mornings and end with brilliant sunsets.
It’s important to pick the right kind of material for the windows that you install in your sunroom. Experts often recommend Low-E glass which has a coating of metallic oxide that acts as a sunscreen for the room. Tempered glass and double glazed glass are also widely used for sunrooms.
