A well-designed sunroom can add character and brighten any home. Also called a four-season room, three-season room or a solarium, this flexible living space is a great way to bring the outdoors inside without the interference of weather or insects.
Maybe you have a sunroom, but it needs a little work before it can function as an inviting gathering spot for the entire family. Or, perhaps you are considering enclosing your deck to create an enjoyable year-round escape. There are many benefits to adding a sunroom to your home, three of which we’ve listed below.
- Extra Space
By adding a sunroom to your house, you are also adding more square footage that can be used all year round. The extra space can be used for many purposes, including entertainment, relaxation, play and casual dining—in many cases becoming the family’s favorite hangout spot to lounge and unwind.
- Enjoy the Outdoors, Indoors
One of the greatest benefits of a sunroom is that you benefit from all of the ambience of the outdoors without any of the discomfort. Add fans, skylights, electrical outlets, furniture, decor and many other features that suit your needs and style while complementing the rest of your home.
- Low Maintenance
Compared to a deck, enclosed sunrooms require little maintenance since they essentially function as another room in your home. You never have to remove patio furniture to keep them dry and protected from harsh weather conditions. And you don’t need to worry about cleaning up leaves and other debris before you entertain.
Planning Your Perfect Sunroom Addition
Whether your existing sunroom needs revived or you are considering having your existing deck transformed to a full sunroom, start by consulting a professional who can help you determine your options.
Whether you envision a quiet reading space or a place for family gatherings, a sunroom is the perfect addition for your home. With added living space and a warm, sunny retreat to enjoy on dreary days, don’t be surprised if your sunroom quickly becomes your favorite room in the house.
