We are shaped by the spaces we occupy, and the work we do shows it. When you examine the habits of some of the world’s most innovative, creative people, it turns out that they all take time to rest and relax – whether that means taking in the glories of nature or escaping into the pages of a favorite book.
What space do you have at home that’s designated for relaxation and enjoyment? For many of us, especially those of us who have busy, active families, the answer may be there is no space. Kids are doing homework in the kitchen, the family room’s full of the family, and somehow even though you said you’d never do it, there’s a make-do home office in the corner of the bedroom – not exactly restful.
Adding a well-designed three-season porch to your home is a smart, cost-effective way to add space to your home without spending a ton of money. A three-season porch doesn’t have to be huge to add a lot to the functionality and enjoyment you receive from your home.
How to Enjoy a Three-Season Porch
If you’re looking for a space to boost your mood and encourage your creative nature, a three-season porch is ideal. Talk to your Wellesley deck designer about how many windows you’d like to have and how you’d like them positioned – abundant natural light is a key feature of many three-season porches, and you also want to take your view into account. Whether you’re an aspiring or established artist, you’ll enjoy having a sketch-worthy subject while sitting in the comfort of your own home.
Choose your color scheme and furnishings with relaxation in mind. What do you enjoy doing? If the answer is reading, you know you’ll need a comfy reading chair, with a table close at hand for your favorite beverage. Looking for a place to meditate or do yoga? Work with your Wellesley deck designer to ensure your new three-season porch has plenty of floor space and room to store your mat & gear.
