Decorating your sunroom can be one of the most fun parts of having an additional space to your home. Selecting your furniture pieces for the outdoors is an important investment, because good outside furniture can give you inspiration for years to come. For this, it is essential that you select the right materials.
Sustainability tip: Invest in neutral, long-lasting outside furniture, so that you don't have to be replacing it continuously. Read more here about how we make your home more sustainable.

The best materials for your outside furniture
Here, we provide a combination of the best materials for your outdoor furniture!
The structures of your Lumon sunroom are from aluminum, a sustainable material that is easily recycled. Aluminum as a material for your outdoor furniture is a great option because:
- It resists rust and moisture damage (powder coated finish adds to protection)
- It is extremely light-weight
- It is durable
- It comes in many shapes and various designs
Synthetic resin is another great material for outside furniture. It is most commonly seen in a woven design, providing a classic and timeless look. This material is another great one because:
- It is strong, durable and withstands heat
- It withstands extremely harsh weather conditions
You will also often find aluminum furniture wrapped in synthetic resin, and these two materials make for a great combo, ensuring that you can leave your furniture in the sunroom all year -round.
Fabrics: synthetic fibers
For the fabrics topping your outdoor furniture, select synthetic fibers. These include materials such as acrylic, vinyl or polyester. Favour materials with these characteristics:
- Breathable and moisture-resistant
- Resistant to sun fade
Another tip to keep in mind is that when you are in the design phase of your sunroom, do not hesitate to present your ideas for how you imagine the layout in the sunroom. This helps to map out what furniture will go where, and how you intend to use the space, so that our Design Consultants can take for example the placing of the walkways into consideration. Having light-weight furniture is also great, because you can change the layout of the room easily!
Timeless furniture can act as a basis for design. The pieces can then of course be spiced up with colourful throws and pillows in accordance with the season. Seasonal plants are another great way to add more life to your room.
