Imagine a space devoted to making your family’s life better. That’s what a sunroom is. Everything about a sunroom is a positive when viewed in terms of happiness: you get extra room, there’s lots of natural light, and the perfect combination for outdoor living of nature’s beauty and a private space.
Sunrooms are ideal for hanging out. Toss some comfortable furniture, a few plants, some relaxing music, and you’ve got a great setting for life’s precious moments – the time you spend with your kids, talking about the most ordinary things, is absolutely priceless in retrospect. Spend time with your special someone in the sunroom, or enjoy your own company. It’s nice to curl up with a book and ignore the world for a while. A sunroom gives the kids a place to play that’s safe and sunny; in a more formal room, the sunroom provides a more casual, relaxed space.
You can play cards in a sunroom. You can play music in a sunroom – if you haven’t exactly mastered your guitar just yet, don’t sweat it; the sunroom is a great place to practice. If you like to paint or draw or create any kind of art, a sunroom is a great place to work. With strategic placement of screens, you can play video games in a sunroom. Some families choose to make the sunroom a device-free zone; others do the total opposite. Play is important. It is good for a family to have a place to play.
In Massachusetts, sunrooms are special because they make it possible to enjoy the outdoors without having to actually go outdoors. There are days when it is definitely too stormy to play outside – but the kids can still have fun in the sunroom watching the rain pouring from the sky or the snowflakes swirling to the ground. Truth be told, sometimes the big kids enjoy that too. At night, you can see the moon and stars from the sunroom, which is good to know if you’re interested in astronomy or romance.
