Inspiring Sunrooms For That Much Needed Sunshine

Filed Under: Decor, Inspiration By Ishrath Humairah 4 Comments


This Is Probably Not The Right Time Of The Year To Write Or Post About Anything Related To Enjoying The Sun As It Is Peak Summer In India. But Then Who Can Resist The Charm Of Spending Some Time In A Plant-laden Sunroom. Sunrooms Need No Season Or Reason As The Magic Of Sunlight And Sun-kissed Plants Are A Good Enough To Indulge Or Dream About. It Does Not Matter Which Season You Are Living Through For You Can Always Find Moments And Benefits Of Spending Time Soaking In A Bit Of The Gentle Sun.

Sunrooms Give Us The Best Of Both The Worlds; Warmth, Security And Comfort Of Home With Views And Stories Of Outside. With Weather Getting More And More Unpredictable, Sunrooms Give Us A Chance To Witness The Seasons, The Colors, The Changes, From The Comfort Of Your Home.

I Do Not Have A Sunroom But Will Never Give Up A Chance On Having One, At Least Once In My Lifetime. There Is Something About These Rooms Of Glass That Let Inside The Magical Rays Of Sun, The Vistas Of Green Gardens, And Connects Your World With The Outside. Of Course, There Also Needs To Be A View Worthy Of Opening Up Your House With Walls Of Glass.

While We Drool Over The Sunrooms And Green Conservatories, Wise Men And Women Had Invented Them For All Practical Reasons. People From Cold Climes And Grey Weather Had To Make Use Of Whatever Little Sunshine Came In Their Lives.

Whereas In India, Going By The Ancient Wisdom Of Vaastu (which Makes A Lot Of Sense From The Sunlight Perspective) Most Of The Indian Households Either Face The East Or West Direction. The Main Doors, Windows And Cooking Areas Are Exposed To The Rising Or Setting Sun, Letting In Abundant Sunlight That Not Only Disinfects The Areas But Also Brings In The Bright Positive Energy That Man Benefits From. Not To Mention The How Much Our Bodies Needs Sunlight For The Essential Vitamin D.

Sunrooms Are Not Restricted To Huge Houses That Have The Luxury Of Creating An Additional Structure. Sunrooms Can Be Made Anywhere. It Is About Opening A Part Of Your House To The Have The Sunlight In. Nowadays, Apartment Owners Are Converting A Good Part Of The Balconies Into Sunrooms. Houses Now Are Doing Away With The Brick And Concrete Walls And Trading In For Glass. Windows Are Increasingly Getting Bigger And Better. But I Still Fancy The Good Ol Sunroom That Is Almost A Separate Structure, Yet An Extension Of The House.

Sun Rooms Have The Potential To Become Ideal Places To Live, Cook, Entertain, Play, Study, Paint, Work And Even Sleep. These Are Peaceful Retreats Where Every Little Thing Feels Like Celebration Of Life.

The Thing That Adds Life To The Sunrooms Are Plants, Plants And More Plants. It Is Symbiotic That Sunrooms Look Lush With Plants, Keeping It Cool And Oygeneted And In Turn There There Is Plenty Of Sunlight For The Plants To Thrive. While There Are Many Sunroom Styles Ranging From Hi-tech, Modern To Ornate… Simple Sunrooms With Lots Of Sunlight And Thousands Of Plants Works For Me.

Here Are Some Of The Sunrooms That I Came Across And Have Bookmarked Them. They Not Only Serve As An Inspiration But Also Keep Reminding Me To Have One Of My Own Someday Soon. Enjoy.

    I Would Love A Sun Room In My House! It Would Be Perfect For Those Days When It’s Just A Little Too Cold To Actually Be Outside. I Really Like The Look Of The Formal Sunroom. We Don’t Have A Lot Of Space So Maybe It Would Be Better To Convert Our Dining Room Into A Sunroom! My Only Question Is How Do You Keep Those Windows Clean All The Time? Thanks For The Inspiration!
