A solarium, or sun room, is typically designed from the ground up with consideration for details, from the direction the room faces to the style of windows used. When decorating, consider the strengths and weaknesses of your sun room. Use furniture that fits the space rather than the latest style. Even more importantly, pull the entire room together with a coherent color scheme. Rely on warm colors to boost natural light, cool colors to expand the space and neutrals to do the rest. So, here are some sunroom paint color ideas.
First idea for sunroom paint color ideas is off white. White is a highly reflective color even in matte finishes, making it a harsh backdrop for a sun-drenched sitting area. Tone down white while retaining its versatility by opting instead for gray walls. A slightly colored tone, gray will balance out natural light and create a well-lit, but not over-lit, sun room. To add warmth, go in the other direction by adding yellow or brown to your white; beige, cream and tan can add subtle warmth to a room with underwhelming natural light. Bright greens and blues, such as lime green, electric blue and baby blue, can add visual interest to a sun room with little furniture.
Consider painting the ceiling and floor in these bright tones, leaving the walls off-white; the bold color will help balance a long wall of windows by drawing the eye inside and up. A warm tone, peach works well with a variety of colors in the yellow, brown and green families. Bring out the room's color by combining a semi-gloss or high-gloss wall paint with a dark matte tone on chair rails, moldings and frames; for example, British racing green, Sherpa blue or dark goldenrod with a pale peach hue. Accessorize with floral prints or textured fabrics with peach accents; pot white, yellow and pink geraniums to add depth to the room.
