Summer is here and it’s the perfect time of year to relax in your sunroom or porch with a good book. Your own private getaway right at home. If you’re looking to turn your sunroom into a sunny retreat or update your existing space, we’ve got the top 5 essentials you’ll need to get started!
1. Comfortable Seating
The ultimate sunroom is like a second living room with plenty of sunshine and fresh air. If enclosed, outdoor furniture is a great choice, however, you do not need outdoor furniture. You can bring in upholstered sofas or chairs, plush pillows and throws, indoor-outdoor rugs and occasional tables that you would have inside as well. You’ll want to make sure your sunroom has electrical outlets for floor and table lamps as well.
2. Tables & Seating for Dining or Entertaining.
Your ideal sunroom should have plenty of seating for you and your guests and a table for dining or playing games. If you have a smaller space to work with a cocktail table or small pub table will do just fine.

3. An Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug
Add comfort and style to your outdoor patio or sunroom with an all-weather area rug! A rug adds plushness and texture over hard, moisture-resistant surfaces such as tile, stone or sealed concrete. An indoor/outdoor area rug will endure all of the elements while still adding a gorgeous finishing touch to your space.
4. Lamps and/or Lighting
While sunrooms are open and provide you with natural light throughout the day – it is still a good idea to have lighting for evening entertaining or relaxing at night with a good book. Ceiling lighting is great and table lamps or floor lamps are perfect too.
5. Stylish Accents and Decor
Just like any space, the sunroom should have plenty of accessories that showcase your personal style. Adding wall art, serving trays, accent pillows and throws are all great ways to make it your own.
