As the calendar turns to the new year, it’s time to take a fresh look at how you’re using your Desert Sun Patio sunroom and set some resolutions for how you want it to be used in this coming year. Your overall goal should be to increase the time that you spend in this marvellous new space, but these sunroom resolutions should also include redecoration ideas to keep everything fresh.
To increase the amount of time you spend in your sunroom when you’re at home, you need to examine what you currently use the room for. If, like most Desert Sun Patio sunroom owners, your sunroom is a simply an extra living room with couches and maybe a fire for the cold winter nights, then you may want to think about using it for some of these:
- Crafts and hobbies – the big windows give you an incredible amount of natural which makes your sunroom an ideal space to practice your favourite crafts and hobbies. Activities that require a bit more space such as painting, jigsaw puzzles or scrapbooking are ideal for your sunroom as you can spread out as much as you want without taking up space in the rest of the home. This could also inspire you to take up a new craft or hobby as another one of your New Year’s resolutions.
- Game night – your sunroom is the perfect entertaining space for a game night, either with your kids or adult friends. You can easily fit an eight person table in most 12 x 12 sunrooms which will give you enough space for a game of cards or even the more intricate board games. The sound of laughter and fun will only encourage you to recreate the experience and spend more time in the sunroom.
- A private spa – if what you really want to use your sunroom for is a quiet haven to relax in, then turning it into your very own private spa room, even just for a day, will give you that feeling of luxury. All you need is a couple of friends, some soft robes, facial packs and a bottle of something bubbly to get going. Consider adding some greenery, quiet music and fluffy cushions to add to the experience. Don’t forget to diarize it to make it into a regular use for your Desert Sun Patio sunroom.
- A family space – you’re more likely to spend more time in your sunroom this year if your whole family is there. However, younger children often make the place feel cluttered with toys and games underfoot, but with some clever storage solutions, you can have the whole family in the room entertained and keep the room looking tidy. An ottoman with internal storage is a great dual purpose piece of furniture, as are end tables that take small baskets that can be filled with toys.
None of these ideas will take much effort to put into place, and your sunroom resolution to utilize the room more frequently will be easily checked off. Now if only your other New Year’s resolutions were that easy to keep!
