Custom homes are a lot more popular than you might realize. Custom-built houses and lots are located everywhere throughout Maryland, like in Baltimore, Frederick, Howard, and Carroll Counties. One of the primary appeals of a custom house is that you can customize it according to your own lifestyle and tastes, like whether you’re a morning person or a night owl. At home, those who love the mornings and the sunshine, in general, may like to consider including a morning room into their design. Read on to learn more!
What Exactly is a Morning Room?
The term “morning room” isn’t too common. However, it is typically synonymous with a sunroom. It is an enclosed sitting room with plenty of windows, unlike a screened porch, which allows air in and has less temperature control. A looser version of a morning room would basically be a room in the house with plenty of different windows. Nevertheless, one may place it at the east, south, or southeast side for maximum morning light exposure at all times.
Why Should You Have a Morning Room?
Why not build yourself a morning room? The idea of enjoying a nice cup of tea or coffee in the quiet brightening of the morning would be great for any early riser or lover of the sunlight. Of course, it is not just limited to the start of the day or to one person necessarily. It could be your dining room, office, hobby room, family room, or entertainment area. If anything, having one area with a lot of windows is quite refreshing.
Outfitting Your Morning Room
You can employ different technology and furnishings in this space to make it comfortable all year. A sunroom isn’t attached to a house’s HVAC and might need either a portable heater, AC unit or a ductless mini-split. If you are looking for a nice way to stay warm, a two-way fireplace or an ethanol fireplace are excellent options. Window treatments such as blinds or curtains are some must-haves too. As for your decorations, you can keep it simple to add pops of color for each season, like orange for fall or blue for summer and spring.
