Sunrooms are fun to decorate. They are found in single family homes as well as townhomes, luxury apartments and small, historic home apartment conversions. Americans use sunrooms as studies, artist’s studios, playrooms, sanctuary rooms, and a place to display treasured plants. Design is contingent on intended use for the space, says Wicker Paradise, so make sure you know the kind of space you want to design for your personal use.

Styles available in wicker furniture span vintage styles, found in antique stores, to modern all-weather wicker-looks that will not fade in strong sunlight. Go for an island look with a couple of high-backed peacock chairs with seat cushions in a colorful palm and hibiscus pattern. If clean lines are more your style, create an intimate conversation space with an all-weather sectional in espresso brown, contrasting off-white seat and back cushions set around a neutral area rug.

Rattan furniture is a sunroom classic. Create a cozy reading corner with Papasan chair and ottoman from your local import store. Use a solid cushion in the chair with a bright Suzani print on the ottoman. Place a side table in the space for books and drinks. A vintage wicker travel trunk can double as a coffee table and blanket storage.

A sunroom’s ample light allows you to be as colorful or neutral as you like. To diffuse the light, paint walls a rich peacock green. In smaller sunrooms, use garden stools as side tables and place wicker furniture cushions in vibrant orange fabric on the floor for seating.

Meditation sanctuary or grand tea room, sunroom design styles are endless in 2017.
