Dining and Entertaining in Glass Spaces
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 imagine it, we can help realize your vision. Let’s get to it:
This stunning glass conservatory located in Carlisle, MA features amazing views of the surroundings.
The small table is perfect for quiet breakfasts, but introducing a larger table enables the client to accommodate more guests during the holidays.
This Gloucester, MA kitchen renovation project involved the addition of rustic sunroom elements adjacent to the kitchen.
The entertainment area transitions naturally to the dining space, and beautiful light floods the room!
This gable-roofed sunroom is located in Newton, MA. Note the dining table beside the beautiful fireplace. Warm winter memories will be made here.
With full mahogany framing, the large windows reveal a wonderful wraparound deck.
Dining areas don’t need to be large. This table is nestled in the corner of a Framingham, MA sunroom.
The result? Amazing views, comfortable dining, and a tranquil place to relax.
Some dining spaces don’t even have dining tables! This Arlington, MA sunroom is usually a relaxation space.
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.
Gorgeous! This Sharon, MA custom glass conservatory combines a nice dining area, an adjacent relaxation space, and stunning views of the backyard.
Here we see a Weston, MA conservatory with beautiful clerestory windows.
The space is brightly lit, adjoined to the home’s grand kitchen, and capable of seating many guests..
This orangery-style double hip skylight was designed and installed by Sunspace as part of a grand kitchen expansion project.
The result is a space that transitions seamlessly between cooking, dining, and entertainment areas, unified by the glow of natural sunshine.

One of our most stunning dining areas with glass windows and roof elements was built in Rye, NH.
This fully custom glass conservatory features a large dining space that opens up to the living and kitchen areas.
The elegant dining space is large, bright, and can be reconfigured to accommodate varying numbers of guests.
Depending on your home’s layout, your custom glass enclosure or addition can completely transform its look.
Note how this lovely dining area is visible from the home’s entryway…
…and how the interior light spills into the backyard at night, creating a magical effect.
What would you do with your brand new space?
The sky is the limit.
