Why December is the Perfect Month for Sunrooms!

December's long nights and cooler temperatures make it the perfect month to cozy up in your sunroom to enjoy the mood-boosting benefits of light -- especially the natural variety!


December is actually a beautiful time of the year in many parts of the country. The trees become almost sculptural without their leaves and the late fall, early winter sky sometime reaches that steel-blue intensity you only see in the fall. 



But even if it's a bit too chilly or raw to spend time outdoors to admire the beauty of the landscape, it's perfect in your sunroom. Here are five more reasons that December and a sunroom are a match made in heaven!

1. You get the feeling of being outside and enveloped in sky and Earth, yet the comfort and warmth of being indoors!
2. Enjoy an evening meal under the stars -- at the dining table in your sunroom, where you'll enjoy the sky but skip the chill of the night air.
3. Get a head start combatting SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), a seasonal depression that affects many people as the days grow shorter. Take advantage of all the natural light you can by spending lots of time in your sunroom.
4. Be ready for  holiday overnight guests by turning the sunroom into a cozy guest room for out-of-town dinner guests.

5. After Thanksgiving, now you're ready to kick off the holiday decorating season. Why not deck your sunroom by erecting your holiday tree there so that you can enjoy the coming weeks surrounded by the outdoors and enveloped by the symbols of the season. If you have a gas fireplace -- as many sunroom owners do -- so much the better. Gather 'round the tree in the evenings with mugs of steaming cocoa and enjoy a cozy fire and each other's conversation to balance out the holiday rush!



Don't have a sunroom yet? Look at the enjoyment you're missing just this month alone! Take a few moments to explore your options at Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows, and start taking advantages of the year-round pleasures of your own sunroom!
