Sensational Sunrooms

Paint Tips
High quality semi gloss paints work well; eggshell finishes can also be used for good stain removal properties, but with a softer sheen. Kitchen/Bathroom paints are also good choices since high moisture will contribute to mildew growth.

For those who are opting for a tranquil and spacious sunroom, consider utilizing calming blues and greens are part of your sunroom color scheme. Popular garden motifs and the concept of "bringing the outdoors inside" highlight a soothing color scheme that is comprised of a soothing blue and green color palette.

In contrast, yellows and oranges impart vibrant energy to a space and lend themselves toward the creation of a stimulating sunroom space. Consider these types of brilliant and vivid hues when the goal is to establish an exciting sunroom space. Learn more in the Color Solutions and Color Mood sections.

A few painting ideas:

  • Painted ladders to be used to hold flower pots or as end tables

  • Painted screens hinged together make wonderful corner accents and can be painted solid, stenciled or distressed – depending on the motif of your sunroom.

  • Floors of sunrooms can also be painted - either with designs to simulate a rug or in patterns to simulate tile. Special floor paints are available that will have maximum adhesion to the surface you’re painting and maximum wear resistance.
