How To Hygge Your Sunroom or Enclosed Porch

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish concept but there’s no one word in English that describes it. It can be interpreted as creating a feeling of happiness, security, and coziness. It’s about slowing down and being present in the moment. Overall, hygge is a lifestyle and in this blog we’ll talk about ways you can adapt your sunroom to the Danish ways!

Soft Lighting

Simply adding soft lighting to your sunroom can change the whole ambiance of it. Try adding a warm glow with candles, lamps, and fairy lights. 

Cozy Decor

Adding lots of pillows and knit blankets will surely cozy up your porch. Plant yourself in front of the fireplace with a warm drink and you’re living the hygge lifestyle. 

Warm Drinks

The Danes created hygge as a way to break away from cold and dark winter days. The act of creating simple rituals such as lighting a candle during dinner or making tea or coffee, can really liven up your space and mood. Try this out this recipe for hot spiced apple cider.

Friends & Family

Hygge isn’t just about decor or objects. It is also about creating moments which may include your friends and family. Have a gathering in your sunroom with your loved ones. Be present with them and live in the moment.
