There is nothing I love more in a house than a solarium. Solariums are an indoor space that is encased with windows, allowing the sun to warm the room. Solariums are a great way for those in the city to get a sense of open space and light. Those living in the country or in suburban town can also utilize a solarium to enjoy views of nature and sunlight, even through the winter months. A solarium can be a formal or informal room. It can be garden-like or tropical in decor. How you decide to use the space of a solarium is also totally up to you. Solariums can be used as a library or reading room, a dining room or a lounging area or even a study; the uses are endless. For those who crave sunlight and feel claustrophobic in 4 walled spaces, consider building a solarium in your home. The warmth of the space will keep you happy until the warm summer months come around.
