Smiles are powerful. Seeing someone's facial expression, and pearly white teeth staring squarely at you, can help people feel more comfortable socializing. However, since last winter, the privilege of seeing smiling faces has unfortunately been taken away. We have consequently all been forced to adjust our living styles. Our sense of what was always “normal” no longer exists. In this world we live in, we cannot read facial expressions, we cannot see pearly white teeth, and we cannot give the present of smiling back to anyone.
We understand the power of a smile at Four Seasons, and realize that COVID-19 has certainly turned our world gloomy; however, some good has of course come out of these unforeseen circumstances. The ability to disconnect from the hustle and bustle and take time to appreciate one's family has been one of the bright spots since the start of the pandemic. What better way to enjoy the company of your family than with a sunroom, which can help you and your loved ones escape reality in a safe way.
Since sunrooms are indoors, we recommend taking into account COVID-19 precautions, including having hand sanitizers accessible throughout the room. Always have wipes handy, and maybe include a handwashing station in the room as well. Open windows if possible, or purchase an air filter to improve airflow. And a huge benefit of sunrooms in the context of COVID-19 is the ability to open windows and let the fresh air in! Additionally, keeping masks on whenever possible is the number one way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Now, keeping these safety precautions in mind to ensure the safety of you and your family, we wanted to provide some guidance as to how you can hold socially distanced gatherings that guarantee smiles and lasting memories.
Doing things that were once a part of our “normal” routine again in a modified way can help make these times seem less frightening. For example, having a movie night with individually packaged snacks and drinks is both COVID-19 safe and perfect for individuals of any age group. Since movie theaters have just started to re-open, transport yourself there in the comfort of your sunroom. Who doesn’t love game night? Set up your sunroom to include your family's favorite board games and spend the night engaging in some friendly competition. If you have young children, setting up an arts and crafts activity that can add value to your sunroom, like making sentimental artwork or having your kids help you decorate, can help make your house feel like a home. And who could forget something special for the adults! Having a wine tasting night or preparing a fancy dinner to eat under the stars in the comfort of your sunroom is simply the best. These are just a few ideas, but we promise that any memory made in your sunroom is irreplaceable. The best part, our sunrooms are accessible no matter the weather, offering the perception of being outdoors.
Keeping your mind and body healthy is essential at this time. Engaging in COVID-19 safe activities with those you love in your one-of-a-kind space will lead to unforgettable memories. Four Seasons is here to help design your one-of-a-kind space for you today. Contact us for more information at 888-270-3546.
