There is tug a of war that often ensues when we want to be outside, but the strength of the sun, the bitterness of the cold, the persistence of the insects or the briskness of the wind makes us hesitate. We want to experience the light, but not a glaring one. We want the connection to nature, but not the kind that bites.
Many of us love the idea of growing indoor plants, but our experience is that we don’t have the right space with the right light to allow our Boston Fern to thrive. Our ficus benjamina seems to be dropping more leaves than it is gaining. And that dracaena, which all the articles say will survive anywhere, has proven the exception to the rule.
Sunrooms allow us to have the best of both worlds; inside and outside. They serve as the balance; wanting to be safe from the blood suckers, pampered by comfortable places to relax, air at the proper temperature and away from the dust, wind and glare. It’s a place that, at once, feel civilized and natural.
Maybe we fantasize that we love the outdoors, want to feel the wind in our face and don’t mind a little tan. But the reality is that many of us are a bit citified and prefer comfort, especially when we are relaxing at home. Sunrooms create a specialized environment that brings the outside in and minimizes the intrusions that can present themselves when we are fully exposed to the elements. What a joy to create such a special space that gives us all that we ask of it.
