Rustic Garden Room Décor Ideas
Posted on 17 January 2017
A garden room, also often called a sunroom, sun parlor, patio room, sun porch, garden conservatory, and Florida room, allows you to enjoy the outdoor elements without actually being outside. So, whether it is raining, snowing, or overly windy, you can still feel like you are enjoying the outdoors, without being affected by the elements. This also means you don't have to deal with bees and mosquitoes. If you have one of these rooms, and it is decorated, it is probably your favorite spot in the house. If you have never really done anything with it, you will be amazed at how drawn you are to this part of your home once it is furnished and decorated. Rustic décor is very popular in these spaces. This guide of must-haves will help.
If the room is large enough for a farm-style table and bench seats, you will be making excuses to eat out there. Otherwise, a small bistro table and chairs will do. This won't be your main seating area, so place the table in a corner or off to the side where it won't block the views of outside.
Bench or Sofa
The interior wall closest to your home's center is the perfect place for a sofa or futon. The door is likely here, too. This seat should have uninterrupted views of the outdoors. Depending on the size of your garden room, you may find that a built-in bench as a seat works better for you.
Modern Water Features
You will be spending a lot of time in your garden room, so it should be decorated as nicely as your home. When friends and family stop by this is likely where you are entertaining. Outdoor elements are ideal! Modern water features create a tranquil oasis, and since they are indoors, they don't have to be cleaned nearly as frequently as their outdoor relatives. If you are going for a rustic yet modern look, opt for a slate one.
Mix Your Pots
This is a garden room, so surely you will have some plants growing. Wooden crates can be used to create a casual chic vignette to display them, or a wrought-iron plant rack works, too. Use a variety of rustic pots. Cheap terra cotta pots can also be painted and given a weathered look. If you love plants, but don't have a green thumb, create a terrarium. Even serial plant killers can keep plants alive in these because after a few waterings, they mostly live off their own ecosystem.G
Garden tools are fun to use as décor. Of course, you can actually use them in the garden, as well!
