So you want more space. A little extra room because the family is growing, children or parents are moving back home, maybe you’ve started a home-based business or you’ve always wanted that conservatory-style room to grow your beloved orchids! There may be a thousand other reasons why you feel your existing house just isn’t big enough, or is lacking something. So many times we have heard customers remark that they didn’t realize what their home, and lifestyle, was truly missing until they decided to move ahead with their anticipated sunroom addition. Numerous times, we heard them remark “our sunroom addition is the room we use most in our home over any other and we wish we would’ve built it sooner.” If you feel as if there is a “void” within your home, such as a lack of natural sunlight or a spot where creative versatility can flourish, a sunroom may just be the answer!
Many people assume you can’t have your cake and eat it too when it comes to outdoor living, but this assumption couldn’t be farther from the truth. A sunroom addition is the perfect example. A sunroom provides a space in your home that allows you to bring the outside inside without the constraints of weather, season or functional limits. A room filled with light and space, a sunroom can let you live outdoors all year round! Though they are considered an interior addition because of their construction requirements, sunrooms give homeowners the most benefit over other outdoor room additions. The aesthetics of a sunroom are very important to its overall worth, but the benefit of extra heated space added to your home’s square footage, along with capability of year round enjoyment, are what really make a sunroom one of the most valuable investments you can make to your home.
Bring the outdoors in
What makes a sunroom different from other outdoor room additions is that it can be whatever you want it to be. It can play any role, and fulfill any need or desire! Sunrooms make a perfect spot to relax, nap, or read a book. A sunroom can become a spot to observe nature without the impact of the elements, or an extra space in which to entertain. With the holidays just around the corner, extra space is a plus in any home. Sunrooms add the functionality of a year- round room because they are fully conditioned. The presence of an HVAC system and the “wall of windows” design allows for plenty of natural light and beauty to enhance your decorating choices. Your room can be set to your comfort level and remain there. There is no need for shivering while enjoying your morning coffee or sweltering in the summer during family game night. Though many only consider the extra cost of adding on a sunroom, since it qualifies as an interior addition, requiring a foundation and roof, it will pay for itself over time based on the versatility it adds to your home and lifestyle. When comparing a sunroom to a screened porch and three or four season room it is easy to see the immediate benefits.
A homeowner needs options
While enjoying Mother Nature year round and adding extra square footage to your floor plan are certainly the most important benefits of a sunroom, the ability to design a sunroom however you please is also important. Sunrooms do not force a homeowner to think strictly along the lines of outdoor fabric and furniture when designing because these additions become part of your home. Sunrooms can be finished and painted to match your home’s interior color scheme. This includes the use of flooring already present within your home such as hardwoods or carpeting. The design and finish possibilities are endless when designing a sunroom.
Consider the benefits
Consider the way you and your family will use your sunroom addition. The versatility the space provides is key. Imagine a relaxing “family room” atmosphere, a place to enjoy watching sports with the guys or even creating a more formal area to experience dining outdoors without the negative aspects of nature (i.e., insects, and rain!).
