Making your Sunroom a Permanent Vacation Spot!


We all have that one shirt that we use for any occasion and with any accessories. Whether you are going to a formal event, out for dinner with friends, or have a chill day with your family, this one shirt seems to fit every social event perfectly. Not to mention, it is by far the most comfortable and stylish item of clothing in your closet. 

Four Seasons sunrooms fulfill all the same roles as this shirt. They are highly versatile, go with every event seamlessly, and you can never get enough of them. But with so many ways to use your sunroom to its fullest potential, I am sure you are wondering how to set it up in such a way that it can cater to your every need. 


Of course, sunrooms are the perfect family room. They offer space, natural light, and are tucked away from the rest of the home to help you and your family feel like you are on vacation. The main benefit of using a sunroom as your family room is lighting. Sunrooms can help you supplement light for electricity, helping keep your bills low and overall health high. Rather than turning on every possible light switch in the house, you can open the blinds, or for a bonus, open the windows for fresh air. Some suggestions of sunroom activities to do in a family room include game night, movie night, or bird watching in the summer and watching the snowfall in the colder months. Nonetheless, a sunroom is a perfect place to watch your kids playing outside from the comfort of the indoors. 


Sunrooms can also serve as an effective office space if that is more consistent with your lifestyle. Given that the COVID-19 pandemic has expanded the population working from home, having a separate at-home office space that allows someone to transition into work mode without distractions is extremely beneficial. Additionally, studies show that daylight can make someone 18% more productive. What better room to surround yourself with sunlight than a sunroom! Sunrooms are spacious and can fit all necessary work equipment. Larger sunrooms may be able to accommodate bigger desks or storage units, but either way, the tiniest sunroom can still function as a perfect office. We definitely suggest facing your desk toward a window, adding some plants, and decorating your office room into a place that inspires and motivates you to work your hardest, while offering a picturesque setting to participate on a conference call or zoom. 


These are just two specific examples, but it does not stop there. A sunroom is certainly not a traditional kitchen; however, add some countertops, cabinets, an oven, and a stove and it can provide the perfect space to entertain friends and family. Have a guest staying over for a more extended period of time? Use your sunroom as a guest bedroom. If you're super crafty, set up an art studio in your sunroom. The possibilities are endless, and Four Seasons is here to support you along your creative journey.
