With winter upon us and less daylight, we can be a little nostalgic of those sun filled days of summer. However, this time of year we can look forward to spending more time indoors and life taking on a little slower pace as we begin to enjoy life’s cozier activities such as reading, watching movies and indulging in our favorite comfort foods.
Keep in mind, you don’t need to forgo the sun during the winter months. Consider adding a sunroom to your custom home. A sunroom can be an extension of your home and benefit you in all four seasons in the Midwest.
How to decorate your sunroom
Gone are the days when sunrooms meant wicker furniture. Get creative with adding some comfy couches, a TV (or not), a coffee table and chairs for a sun-filled living room you can enjoy all year around in your custom home. Add roman shades, wood blinds or leave your windows bare to let in the most amount of light during the day. Add rugs, pillows and lamps to finish the look off in the decor style that fits you the most.
Adding a sunroom onto your home can be beneficial all year around
Having an indoor room that you can enjoy in the winter months will be a great benefit to those dealing with seasonal mood disorders or who just miss being in the sun during the winter months. Who wouldn’t want to stay toasty while getting the benefits of sunlight?
A sunroom adds additional square footage to your home
At some time in their lives, most families come to a point where they wish they had a little bit more space to spread out. Maybe your family is still growing or the kids are just getting bigger. Their social life is expanding as more friends come over after school. Perhaps you would like to entertain more and would love more space for your guests. Well a sunroom can be a great addition to your home.
Turn your sunroom into an additional living room for you or your guests to enjoy when visiting. You can use the space for a hobby room or even a playroom for your kids. Some families enjoy placing their kitchen table in the sunroom to enjoy their meals together surrounded by nature. The possibilities are endless and completely customizable to your family’s needs and preferences.
