January 26, 2015
Got an extra sofa bed in your home but don’t know where to put it? Want to enjoy the flowers and plants in your greenhouse more often? Then how about installing a couch area inside your greenhouse? That way, not only will you get an extra place to sit back and relax, you’ll also get to spend time with your pet flora anytime you want! Plus, you can also get to enjoy a healthy dose of sunlight! If you want to get started, here are a few pointers to follow.
Obviously, you can’t have a couch room in your greenhouse if it’s too small or too cluttered with plants and other stuff, can you? So better check if there’s enough space first. And while you’re at it, you should also inspect the greenhouse itself. Does it have sprinklers installed on its ceilings? Make sure the area where you’re planning to have the sofa bed is well away from these sprinklers so you won’t be soaked whenever it’s water time for the plants. And if you want to enjoy a bit of sunlight, then you should pick the spot where you can get all the sunshine you need.
Prep Up the Clearing
Once you’ve found the perfect spot to have your couch area in the greenhouse, it’s time to ready it for your incoming furniture. Do some minor cleaning like moving some of the plants somewhere else and sweeping and mopping the floors. From there you could either simply spread carpets on the floor space or (if you really want to go the extra mile) slightly elevate the flooring and install smooth tiles on it to make it more comfortable, with a power outlet installed for any appliances you want to move in along with the
When the greenhouse space is ready, you can now bring in your sofa bed to your newly installed couch area. You can also haul in other furniture you might need, as well as some appliances like small refrigerators where you can stuff some snacks (that way, you won’t have to get up and go to the kitchen to get something to eat and drink), and lamps for extra lighting.
Add Finishing Touches
Now that the couch area in your living room is set, the last thing you need to do is add a few finishing touches. This includes decorations and ornaments in and around the couch area (keep them simple so you can focus on enjoying your flowers and plants). Install a pathway in your greenhouse so you can walk straight to the couch area without disturbing your pet flora, and reserve a spot in your couch area for your pet dog or cat.
If you’ve followed these tips, then your newly built greenhouse couch area is in now place. Now there’s nothing left to do but sit back and relax, perhaps with a steaming cup of coffee and tea in one hand and an engaging read in the other.
