As a seasoned sunroom owner, you know the incredible value of having an extra room for formal entertaining, relaxing or working from home. However, there comes a time in every sunroom owner’s life that everything starts feeling a little stale and rundown, and you begin thinking about remodeling your sunroom, such as one from Desert Sun Patios, to breathe new life back into your extra space.
Remodeling your sunroom can be something you do as a big overhaul all at once, or a piecemeal project where you tackle the room in sections to see how you feel about each piece before moving on. In either scenario, the following are some common sunroom remodeling ideas to get you thinking about refreshing your sunroom:
- Flooring – when faced with a new sunroom, many people choose exposed hardwood floors to reflect much of the natural sunlight and warmth that is the hallmark of any sunroom. Replacing the hardwood floor is a big project to undertake, but one that will completely change the look and feel of the room. A simple remodel is to buy either a large carpet or several smaller rugs. Not only will this give a new vibe to the space, but you’ll also find they help trap and conserve heat more during the colder months.
- Wall decoration – while there may not be a huge amount of wall space in your sunroom due to the large windows, what walls you do have access to affect the feel of the room. Simply changing from a light paint color to a darker shade will make the room feel cozier (and the opposite is true when going from dark to light). You can go for a simpler remodeling idea by swapping out the artwork on the walls or investing in a new hanging display. Less is more when it comes to changing the walls as you always want your focus to be on the view out of the windows.
- Furniture collections – the furniture that you have in your sunroom will be dictated by the purpose of the room, but you don’t have to completely change how you use the room to remodel. At a very basic level, decluttering the amount furniture will make your sunroom feel bigger and brighter, while a more extensive project might be to put new fabric on your existing furniture or to move pieces around to change the focal point of the room.
- Soft furnishings – a final way to remodel your sunroom is to swap out the soft furnishing. If you’ve had a lot of scatter cushions, fill a basket with soft blankets instead to create the illusion of more space. Install lace curtains over the window to create interesting visual shadows and to give a bit more privacy, or add heavier curtains to trap the heat during the winter months.
Which sunroom modeling ideas you choose will be dependent on the time you have available for the project and the budget you can allot to the work. As with all home remodeling projects, start with your final vision in mind and work your way through the steps needed to make your sunroom goal a reality.
