Furniture Ideas for Your Small Sunroom

A small sunroom is perhaps one of the most challenging areas to decorate in a home. There are many reasons for this and most of them relate to size restrictions and theme. Most people like to decorate their small sunroom in a particular style and this means that the furniture must also follow a similar theme. Traditional furniture choices usually get dismissed early simply because they are either too large to fit into the small sunroom or, because they do not keep with the feel and decor of the room.smal sofas for small sunrooms

This is the reason that many people end up going with cheap wicker furniture or outdoor options in their small sunroom. Fortunately, there are small sunroom furniture options out there that offer you the comfort of a traditional small sofa, while still keeping with whatever theme you decide upon.

For a small sunroom, you should first nail down the function of the room. It makes no sense to pick the furniture or even the decor before you know how you wish to actually use the room. Are you planning on using the room as a green room of sorts? In other words, are you going to keep live plants in the small sunroom? Is the sunroom going to be used as a getaway for your family? Is comfort or space more important to you? How many people do you think you will entertain in your sunroom most often? All of these are questions that you should consider before choosing your furniture for your small sunroom.

Room Planning for Small Spaces

Decide What Stays and What Goes …

When room planning, even art, accessories and paint color is critical if you live in a small space. I have talked to many people about concerns they encountered while designing their spaces, whether large or small. From these conversations, I have learned that it can be as daunting for some to try and design an 800 square foot apartment as it is a house in the suburbs or a villa on the Riviera.

In this article, I wanted to touch on what I consider to be rule number 1 for room planning for small spaces.

First and Foremost — You need to decide what stays and what goes.

Obviously, if you are moving into a new space and/or purchasing new furniture, the first thing you want to do is decide which of your existing pieces you will be keeping. Are you attached to Grandpa’s old roll top desk he gave you, or a retro accent table you picked up at a boutique sale — or both?

If you want to hold onto the larger pieces, like the desk, consider alternative uses. We moved our roll top desk out of a very small bedroom and into the dining room to serve as our buffet. With all its drawers, nooks and crannies, it was a perfect place to hold and hide our silverware, napkin rings and table top items that we use only for special occasions.

If you’re thinking about buying additional furniture pieces from our website (which we hope you are), I can work with you to lay out the rooms using online tools by placing the furniture for you in ¼ scale imagery and showing you options that make the most sense. So don’t be afraid to ask for the complimentary help. That’s what I’m here for. But for now …

Decide What Stays and What Goes.

In my next article, I am considering writing about a topic no one thinks about when purchasing furniture for small spaces called “Safe Spaces.” Safe Spaces is the area between one piece of furniture and the next. Have you ever been to a friend’s house who had no idea of Safe Space and every time you got up off of their apartment sofa or chair, you would bang your knee on the coffee table? That’s what I’m talking about. Ouch!

In future articles we’ll also talk about paint color, wall art and accessorizing to name a few; all necessary topics in making your small space feel bigger.

As always, if you have ideas or would like to contribute to this article or any of the others that will be posted on this website, please do so. There are a lot of people looking for new ways to maximize space and we want to share all of our successful ideas! I want you to look to Simplicity Sofas as one of your resources that will keep you informed of new trends, space planning, color coordinating and other design advice.
