If you’re lucky enough to have a sunroom in your home, you’ll want to match that bright energy of the sun to the colour design inside. But there’s not a lot of wall real estate in sunrooms, so it’s essential to choose paint colours carefully, keeping the windows, natural lighting, and your goal for the sunroom top of mind.
Sunroom Paint Colours
Before selecting paint colours for your sunroom, decide what effect and ambiance you hope to achieve. Picturing yourself in your ideal sunroom can help capture the vision for this space. For example, do you want a sunroom that is light, airy, and bright? Or a sunroom that is warm, cozy, and calming? Or maybe even unique, non-traditional, and a bold? Keep your goal in mind while exploring paint colour schemes. Here’s a few little things to keep in mind when deciding on the perfect colour:
- Sunlight can reveal a paint colour’s undertones. For this reason, it’s a good idea to test out paint swatches in your sunroom at different times of the day.
- Choose interior/exterior paint because it offers UV protection to help your paint resist fading; interior household paint is unlikely to give you optimal results in a sunny space.
- Purchase enough paint to apply multiple coats (at least two) in the sunroom. The paint will look richer, and more than one coat will also provide additional protection against UV rays, moisture, and the temperature fluctuations common in sunrooms.
- Don’t be afraid to paint an accent wall to add contrast and visual interest to the sunroom. Painting the entire room with one bold colour may make it seem too small, whereas painting an accent wall allows you to incorporate a pop of colour without making the room seem too heavy.
