Get Creative with Added Space in Your Home: 3 Fun and Fabulous Ideas for Your Sunroom Addition


Looking for more living space, but not the hassle of a big construction project and all of the planning that goes with it? A sunroom makes a great, cost effective addition to any home. It also has the added benefit of being able to function as the ideal space for many activities and uses.
  • Art Studio -- If you're a painter or sculptor, then you know how difficult it is to find adequate space to store art supplies. A sunroom addition will give you the room you need for cabinets and shelving to hold your materials. You'll have easier access to everything you need whenever you get in the mood to create an art piece. You won't have to worry as much about how messy things get when you have a dedicated space that's all yours. A sunroom will also provide the essential natural light that artists need and love. With all of the glass in the room, you'll find yourself more connected to the outdoors and inspired by nature's beauty, which will allow your creative juices to flow!


  • Children's Playroom -- A sunroom makes a fun play space for children. When you use insulated glass in the room, it's cozy all year around. Your kids will love the natural light. They'll feel like they're part of the outdoors, regardless of the weather or time of year. When they can't go outside, they won't get antsy or feel cooped up as long as they can enjoy the open feeling that a sunroom will give them. You'll have extra space to keep all their board games, jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, and other toys. Include bean bag chairs and a soft rug in the middle for comfort. You can even set up tables in each corner for different uses such as art projects, reading, or a place to work on model toys. You can even include a spot for drinks and snacks.


  • Pet Sanctuary -- If you have pets, a sunroom addition will become their favorite spot. It's as close as they can get to nature without actually being outdoors. You can put your pet carriers in the space, along with their food and water dishes. Place their beds in the room and all of their toys. If you have space, you can even include a grooming station. You should also add some comfortable chairs or a couch in the sunroom, so you and your pets have a soft place to sit and spend time together while enjoying the scenery through the beautiful glass. If you want to give them access to the outdoors from your sunroom, tile the room, so it's easier to clean and include a pet door.

Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
