If you’re having a few friends over to celebrate the holidays or you’re opening your home to extended family who will stay for days, your sunroom is the perfect space to host drinks, dinner, or just watch your favorite holiday film. If the weather is cooler as you celebrate, you may want to use these tips to warm your space and jazz it up with some holiday spirit.
Enjoy your Christmas tree indoors, but don’t forget to add a little holly to the sunroom space. Add a wreath, mistletoe, or holly to your window trimmings or atop furniture to give some holiday flavor to the space.
Depending on your climate, you may want to position mobile heaters within your sunroom to keep guests warm. Heaters that offer a display of flames create a great holiday scene. For long-term temperature control, consider adding an electric fireplace to be able to enjoy it even longer throughout the year.
Stop running from the kitchen to your sunroom. Add a bar cart to the space to hold a bottle (or two) of wine, some snacks, and a few glasses. With the variety of style, you can opt for a modern bar cart that disguises as décor, incorporate a rustic look with wood, or use a bold color to make the cart a focal point in your sunroom. You can also add some holiday decor to the cart to keep the festive theme in tact.
The holiday season is all about lights! From scented candles to colorful string lights, fill your sunroom with crisp white lights for a classic Christmas look or opt for holiday fun in a string of colored bulbs. The hanging lights are a perfect holiday party addition and candles can accent your outdoor family dinners.
Your sunroom may be a getaway space, but adding a television for holiday parties is a good idea for those who want to binge on Christmas movie favorites. A television is a must in your enclosed outdoors space. If you want to avoid having the TV as the focal point, use custom furniture pieces that can conceal the television until you want to use it.
Another classic element of the holidays is the seasonal music. Whether you play the tunes through the television or install a surround sound system, include the Christmas music in your sunroom holiday party.
