Sure, the open pool deck or the outdoor living area look great right now. But soon the warmth of summer is bound to give way to colder weather and a desire to stay indoors. This is of course an annual affair and in some parts of the world, even summer can get pretty dark, dreary and even rainy! With that mind, a sunroom definitely feels like a practical addition that allows you to take in all the warmth without having to deal with the vagaries of weather. Sunrooms bring along with them a plethora of advantages and come in a variety of styles ranging from contemporary and Scandinavian to rustic and Mediterranean.

Some indoor plants do well with medium to bright light, while others need much lower sunlight. But going beyond just light, keeping the heat and humidity inside the sunroom right is a big part of maintaining the health of those plants. This is truer in winter months when the temperatures can drop drastically and sunlight becomes a rare commodity. Consider another source of heat to supplement heat from sunlight during these chilly times.
Where you place a plant in the sunroom is dependent on a lot more than aesthetics alone. Make sure that the plant receives the right amount of sunlight and warmth throughout the year, keeping it healthy and happy! Since there is often no shortage of natural light in the sunroom, you definitely have greater decorating freedom here. But some indoor plants grow better under direct light while others need plenty of shade. A rubber plant does well in the darker corners of the sunroom while succulents and additions like the snake plant thrive pretty much everywhere.
