What is Your Favorite Part of Home? How Transition Spaces (Interior to Exterior) Add Comfort and Cozy Factor To Both Home and Garden

During the pleasingly warm weather months, a sunroom serves three important purposes ...

  1. No matter the weather, a sunroom or covered patio provides a transition from indoors to outdoors by allowing sheltered yet open access to both areas.
  2. Sunrooms and patio covers allow you to really enjoy your yard and garden by affording sweeping views of those outdoor spaces. 
  3. Sunrooms and LifeRoom style patio covers add valuable living space to your home -- and this last benefit is one that can last the whole year through if you include a heat source such as a gas fireplace or under-the-floor heating! 

Research shows that nature is good for us. It's calming and nurturing, yet, if we're honest, it's not always cooperative, even during the warm months. A sudden spring shower or summer thunderstorm can send us running for the door, or the backyard mosquito population can make an evening patio barbecue less than perfect. That's where you'll find that having a sunroom can bring you that transitional space that allows you to soak in the beauty of nature whether nature's "cooperating" with your plans or not!


A Sunroom is Like a Giant "Window" on the (Backyard) World!

Spring is when the backyard garden really comes alive! After months of bare trees and lots of gray and brown, spring brings the color our souls have been craving. Your sunroom allows you to drink it in with panoramic views that invite all of that soul-soothing natural beauty indoors, even when it's showery or the sun outside is relentless. In the sunroom, screens and windows keep the area bug-free, and blinds or shades can tone down the heat of the summer sun.

How to Make Your Sunroom Work Beautifully in Any Weather

With a little smart planning (i.e., adding a heat source, strategically siting the sunroom to make the most of the sun's rays in winter, adding shades or blinds to control glare and heat in summer, a ceiling fan, etc.) you can create a sunroom that's the perfect "bridge" between the indoors and outdoors, and add year-round square footage to your home, all for less money than you would typically spend on a traditional addition.

Turning your Sunroom into a Greenhouse

Four Season’s sunrooms offer endless opportunities to design and customize. And the perfect touch could be to add an interior garden to your sunroom. Sheltered from the elements and situated in the sunlight, sunrooms are ideal for growing plants.  You may be asking, “ What kind of plants can I grow in my sunroom? ” Plants that need lots of sunlight are ideal, as your sunroom feeds off of direct rays all day. Conveniently, plants that thrive in an indoor garden are plants that would not usually do as well outside due to the harshness of the weather. This way, if you are interested in gardening, you can grow a wide variety of plants inside and outside your sunroom. Additionally, sunroom gardens require less maintenance, and can be kept all year round. This is the perfect opportunity to grow something you always wished you could with the proper conditions.  The following plants, herbs, and flowers are recommended for sunroom gardens: Mint, Rosemary, Citrus plants, Hibiscus, Peace lily

Smart Lighting Options for Safer Homes

Sometimes spending time outdoors can be so enjoyable that you don’t want to go back inside after the sun goes down! It is important to install lighting so that you can keep the party going without worrying about the sunset. Lights can illuminate the mood and keep you safe from any unexpected threats in the dark. Try some of these exciting options to ensure that your time outside stays “lit”. String Lighting String lights are an immensely popular option for outdoor lighting. They come in a large variety of colors and designs to provide a warm and intimate light. Be sure to purchase lights that are safe to use outdoors and have enough string to cover the desired area. You can simply let them hang above you or wrap them around trees for a festive glow. Deck Lighting A more professional option is to get lights directly installed into your deck. They are completely safe because they are integrated into the deck and it is easy to get around without tripping since there are no grooves
