Dining and Entertaining in Glass Spaces


by | Nov 30, 2017 | Planning

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas fast approaches! We hope that all of our readers have had a happy holiday season thus far. As the temperatures drop, the warmth of friends and family make up the difference. It’s no surprise, then, that the dining room becomes one of the most important spaces in your home during the holiday months: it’s the place where you break bread and reconnect with loved ones.

But perhaps your seating area is small, cramped, or just doesn’t have the look and feel that you want for a space intended for dining, entertainment, relaxation, and the creation of important memories. This isn’t uncommon, and Sunspace Design has the solution.

Our line of products includes conservatories, orangeries, sunrooms, and totally custom glass spaces. Imagine enjoying the warmth of a Christmas dinner as the snow falls outside, or the beauty of natural sunlight filtering into your home throughout the day as family opens gifts. And if increasing your home’s footprint through the addition of a custom glass structure or room isn’t an option, our line of custom glass roofs and skylights can completely transform an existing space in ways you didn’t think possible.

Today’s blog post highlights a small selection of the glass structures and home renovation projects we’ve completed throughout the New England. Each example is either presently being used as a dining area by the clients, or represents a layout that’s perfect for entertaining and feeding guests. It’s our hope that this selection will inspire you as you consider how a Sunspace Design project could improve your home. And don’t forget: because every Sunspace project is a custom experience that’s uniquely tailored to your goals and the existing style of your residence, nothing is off limits. If you can dream it up, we can help realize your dream. Let’s get to it:

The client is able to use the room as a dining area by bringing out tables and chairs on the holidays.
Because they offer so much utility and introduce natural sunlight, glass spaces can be used for multiple purposes.
