A small sunroom is a space with endless possibilities. Too diminutive for any high-traffic use, a small sunroom can reflect your personal interests and provide a hideaway all your own in which to relax and recharge. Whatever your interests, a small sunroom can fulfil all your needs with little cost and effort.
A small, sunny room can be the foundation for a cosy garden retreat that you can enjoy year-round. Landscape the area outside the sunroom to provide you with a growing and flowering view in mild weather. Doing so visually enlarges the space of the room. Pot a variety of sun-loving plants and place them in clusters in the corners of the sunroom to add interest and life to the space. Confining plants to the corners of the room helps enclose the small space, giving it that secure and safe feeling. Select heavy rattan furniture with neutral-coloured cushions to provide a comfortable space to relax. Complete the retreat with a small rattan occasional table to hold tea and watering cans.
Even the smallest spaces can hold a mini-cafe or pub table. A small sunroom is a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy breakfast. Place a small area rug under the table to define the space, and then coordinate the table colour with the trim colour of the room to create a cohesive look, which is important for a small space. Create an inviting place to enjoy a solitary cup of coffee by dressing the table with colourful place settings and a petite blooming centrepiece.
Use a faux or portable fireplace to set the theme for a personal sunroom reading nook. Earth-tone sheers on the windows filter light during the day and provide a dreamy space illuminated by a reading lamp in which to relax at night. Place one comfortable leather chair and ottoman at an angle towards the windows and line the area under the windows of the sunroom with low bookshelves filled with favourite books. A small occasional table can hold current reads, while a natural wood magazine rack or wicker basket can hold periodicals and newspapers.
A small sunroom is an ideal space to create a meditation or prayer room. Start with a clean space then lay a patterned area rug in the centre of the floor. Drape windows in billowy curtains and hang a variety of wind chimes either directly outside the windows or from the interior curtain rod to provide peaceful chiming when the wind blows gently through the room.
Place a prayer alter or water feature against one wall of the sunroom to create a focal point and then layer in some green plants to add another natural element to the room. Place a pile of kneeling pillows in a corner of the room to make the room both beautiful and functional.
