For introducing natural sunlight into a home, a builder may add a sunroom or a conservatory to the floor plan, both of which feature multi-windowed designs to allow the bright sunshine into the space. If your home includes a conservatory, morning room, or sunroom, you may be at a loss as to what exactly you should use it for. Oftentimes, homeowners view sunrooms as extra space that does not serve any real purpose. Here at CarrHomes, we use conservatory and morning room features to bring the luxury into the our luxury homes. Get some ideas on how to use your sunroom space below, and browse our selection of luxury homes for sale.
Create a cozy breakfast area in your sunroom or conservatory for truly radiant mornings. The natural sunlight and your morning cup of coffee will work together to wake you up and help you welcome the day. Opt for a small round table for classic tea room appeal, or have a custom bench built to maximize seating options. However you design your sunroom breakfast nook, it’s sure to provide a better wake up call than a quick meal in front of the television.
If you have a green thumb, perhaps you’ll bring a bit of nature into your home with your very own verdant paradise. Sunrooms and conservatories make excellent spaces for growing flowers and other plants. When you grow plants indoors in a sunroom, you’re able to provide them with plenty of natural sunlight while still protecting them from outside elements. Even if you’re not much of a gardener, you can still decorate your sunroom with greenery to provide your household with a natural area they can enjoy all year long.
Unless your home includes a designated office space, it can be difficult to decide where to put your home office. There may be space in your master bedroom for a desk, but what if you don’t want to combine your work space with the space in which you relax and decompress? Some homeowners place home offices in kitchens, dining rooms, or even living rooms when there’s simply no other space. Before you allow your home office to take over another space in your home, use your sunroom or conservatory as an office.
The natural light that shines into a conservatory or morning room makes it the ideal space for a home art studio. Whether you draw, paint, sculpt, sew, scrapbook, or build model airplanes, having a designated space to do your arts and crafts is important. Why not choose the room in the home that receives the most natural sunlight, a must-have for the artist’s studio? Taking photos of your art or experimenting with photography will be a breeze with all of the natural light.
They may not be the most soundproofed of rooms, but that doesn’t mean your conservatory or morning room wouldn’t make a great music room. Whether you play the piano, your spouse has a collection of guitars, your child has picked up the violin for the school orchestra, or your teenager has decided to form a rock band, you’ll all love practicing in your sunny music room. Your family will love spending time playing music together.
Invest in a few comfy chairs and a loveseat to create a sitting area out of your conservatory or sunroom. This type of bright, cozy space is perfect for catching up with guests, reading a book, or even taking a nap. There’s nothing quite like kicking back and dozing off with the sun to keep you warm. In case that’s not enough, when you hang some thick curtains and include a sofa with a pull-out bed, your sitting room can be easily transformed into a guest bedroom.
We hope at least one of these ideas catches your eye so you can enjoy your morning room or conservatory all year round.
