A small sun porch can provide plenty of space for relaxing and enjoying a view of the outdoors. Even a very small area will not look or feel crowded if the seating is right for the room. Do not line the walls with furniture and other decor. Instead, carefully choose the seating and other furnishings. They can be just as comfortable and as stylish as furnishings and decor throughout the rest of the home.
A home I am considering on purchasing has a small sun porch. I have been searching for seating other than a pair of plastic lawn chairs that I have used on a patio for the past five years. I want the sun porch to look as well decorated as the rest of my home. If I purchase the home with the sun porch I know I will spend a lot of time enjoying the space, and I want the seating to be comfortable and visually appealing.
Take a Look at Pub Style Tables and Chair Sets
I recently found a very stylish pub style table at Hobby Lobby. I never expected to find furniture at Hobby Lobby, but if I buy the home with the sun porch I would consider the set. The square table would comfortably accommodate four people, and I loved the look of the sleek dark wood. It would make a fantastic place to enjoy a light meal or a drink with family and friends. With a pub style set, the sun porch would still offer enough space for a comfy wicker recliner in a corner.
Consider Wrought Iron and Glass Furnishings
I happened to notice another table and chair set at Hobby Lobby, and I liked it even more than the first arrangement. It was also a pub style set, but it was much more exquisite and highly unique. It was absolutely beautiful. The seating was wrought iron, and the table had a gorgeous glass top. I would choose the wrought iron seating and glass top table over the wooden set. I personally prefer the look and durability of wrought iron over wood.
Shop for Comfy Wicker Chairs and a Small Table
Wicker is not just for outdoor use. It can be used when furnishing and decorating a small sun porch. Shop for wicker seating in a color and style of your choice, and make sure the cushions are comfortable and easy to clean. A small table can be placed in between the chairs, and it can be used to hold everything from beverages to reading material.
Take your time when choosing seating and other furnishings and decor for a small sun porch. Shop around and make sure it is exactly what you want. Furniture is an investment, and it should be comfortable, stylish and something you can live with for years to come.
