So you’ve just upgraded to a 3-season porch or added a sunroom. You have all this open space, and now it’s time to decorate. Where should you start?
The Traditional Rocking Chair – Classic and functional, the rocking chair was and still is a staple for any living space. The rocker was designed for making memories. Imagine rocking your young one to sleep on a beautiful warm day or listening to your grandparent share stories from the past near the fireplace. No matter what theme you are going for, a rocking chair can fit in just about any decorum.
Window Dressings – Your Sunspace Weathermaster Windows are great at protecting you and your space from the harsh outdoors. However, at times natural lighting can be overwhelming and hot. This is when window dressings are a must. Hanging curtains or Sunspace Sunshades gives your 3-season porch or sunroom a more inviting look. They also block the bright sun, add privacy, and provide a layer of insulation when the temperature drops.
Dining Tables – Traditionally, the dining room table has been the place for where great memories are made and bellies are filled. Though let’s be honest, eating in a dining room is becoming less conventional and great moments can happen anywhere. If it’s a beautiful day, why sit inside? Let your sunroom be the new place for where you and your guests enjoy delicious eats and create great memories together. Add a dining table and a few trays here and there and you are all set!
Seating for One or All – Along the same lines as the dining table, you want to make sure your space is equipped for how you want to use it. We can almost guarantee you are going to need seating, and not just any seating…COMFY seating. Whether you are planning to use the space for private lounging or entertaining many, it is critical that you have furniture that is pleasant to sit on for extended periods of time (you are not going to want to leave this room). The last thing you want is a bad back or an achy body all because your furniture was not comfortable. By the way, hammocks are back!
Natural Elements Promote Positivity – Adding some greenery to your outdoor living space promotes good health, positive energy, and clean air. In addition to plants, water invites life, growth, and relaxation. There are studies that water is known to make humans happier and healthier, so why not create a fountain, or enjoy the view of the lake or pool out back. Kick up the positive vibes in your outdoor living space with the elements that bring you back to nature.
