If you only use your sunroom on rare occasions, you may be looking for more opportunities to spend time in that part of your home. The exposure to daylight that’s offered in this type of room can help you get the vitamin D you need while providing a more expansive view of your yard. Here are a few suggestions to help you get more use out of this room.
How Can You Use Your Sunroom?
1. Move Your Sitting Room
If you have a sitting room or a living room elsewhere in the house, consider moving it to your patio room or sunroom. The additional natural light will boost everyone’s mood while providing a more natural environment for you and your family. You can watch television together, read a book, or simply keep each other company while enjoying the sunlight, fresh air, and the nature of the surrounding outdoor environment.
2. Take Up Gardening
A sunroom can be almost as good as a greenhouse for nurturing potted plants and learning about growing your own garden. The doors in the room can be fitted with patio screens to allow fresh air to pass through, while the windows allow plenty of natural light into the area. As your potted plants grow, they will exchange more oxygen for carbon dioxide, helping you and your family to breathe better.
3. Create an Indoor Spa
It won’t take as much work as you think to turn this extra room into a relaxing spa. You can start by adding a small hot tub, a massage table, and a meditation mat. You might also want to add a small Bluetooth speaker, so you can listen to your favorite music as you relax. Sitting in your new hot tub as you watch the night sky can help prepare you for a deeper sleep each night, so you can awaken feeling refreshed and energetic.
4. Add an Entertaining Area
If you receive visits frequently, or host cookouts on a regular basis, it may make more sense to use your sunroom for entertaining. You can add a small bar and a sink in one corner of the room while setting up comfortable patio furniture in the center of the room. If the room has a door that leads to your yard, your guests can relax and enjoy their drinks while you grill the meat for dinner. This will help you, and your guests avoid the insects that usually gather at cookouts, while still enjoying the view of nature.
