4 Ways To Make A Sunroom More Comfortable

If you’re looking for ways to enhance the comfort and convenience of your sunroom, you’ve probably already considered the main aspects such as A/C and furniture. However, comfort goes beyond just having a convenient place to relax in a temperate environment, as there are lots of things you can do to make a sunroom a more inviting place to be. With that said, here are four ways you can make a sunroom more comfortable

Install Custom Window Blinds or Curtains

The idea of installing blinds or curtains in a sunroom is one that is often overlooked because the entire point of this room is to provide access to unhindered views. However, blinds are definitely a convenience that can come in handy to make the space more comfortable on particularly hot days. Suppliers like Next Day Blinds can work with you to create bespoke blinds that can be arranged across the full length of the room. Of course, to shade the roof you may need to use a retractable tarp system

Add A Drink Station

One thing that can really make a sunroom a more comfortable relaxed environment is having a collection of cold drinks on standby. Instead of putting yourself in a position of having to walk to the kitchen every time you need a beverage, consider the convenience of having a mini-refrigerator installed just for this purpose. Likewise, you might want to add a portable kitchen island that can be used for meal preparation within the sunroom, which can be great for having indoor summer picnics and get-togethers.

Try Smart Glass

Smart glass is a revolutionary new type of glass that can be remotely controlled to change the tint and transparency at the touch of a button. Of course, switching your entire sunroom to smart glass will be a significant investment and is going to wind up being much more expensive than simply installing a system of blinds and curtains.

Add Fans

Generating a nice breeze is a guaranteed way to make any spot more comfortable, especially when the sun is beating down on you directly. Most people love the warmth and brightness of a sunny day but aren’t huge fans of the excessive heat that comes with it. Mounting oscillating fans throughout the sunroom is a great way to ensure that you can stay cool on the hottest days without having to burden your home’s A/C system.

Giving Yourself a Sunny Indoor Sanctuary

Ultimately, taking the steps above to improve the comfort of your sunroom is something that every homeowner should commit to in order to give themselves a welcoming indoor sanctuary where they can soak up the sun. With the ability to control how much sunlight is entering the room, promote optimal airflow and ventilation, and access drinks conveniently without having to make your way to the kitchen or another area of the home, you’ll have an ideal spot to get your tanning on and absorb much-needed vitamin D from the sun’s rays.
