The great thing about having the family around over a holiday period is the fun and jolly atmosphere when everyone’s gathered. Snippets of gossip and news are exchanged and views sought. Everyone should be mucking in to make it a truly happy occasion. There is the drawback though of a lot of work and if the house isn’t rally set out or big enough for such a gathering, it can cause tensions aplenty. Having a sun room or conservatory is a really super way of making extra space for entertaining – especially if there is a lot of glass and the weather is warm and sunny. Keeping the calmness and wonderful ambience can be a struggle unless it is furnished carefully, not too much. Seating can be versatile, a cabinet holding folding chairs or stools can ensure enough seating but it doesn’t need to take up permanent space. Making and then keeping the room light and airy always instills calm.
