A sunroom is an excellent way to bring the outdoors in and enjoy nature in the comfort of your home. Thanks to their large glass walls, they bathe the space with sunlight, giving you a fresh and vibrant space to spend leisure time. They also add curb appeal as they seamlessly blend with your home.
There are several factors to consider when adding a sunroom to your home. DuPaul Construction, one of the top kitchen contractors in the area, discusses further:
Type of Sunroom
The right type of sunroom will depend on your needs, budget and local climate. A traditional sunroom is a glassed-in living space that can be enjoyed during mild weather but may be too hot or cold during summer or winter. On the other hand, a four-season sunroom is built with temperature controls so they can be enjoyed throughout the seasons. Your dependable contractor will walk you through your options and recommend the best one for your home.
Decide the location of your sunroom based on the orientation of the sun as this will affect its heating or cooling capabilities. An eastern exposure will expose the room to the sun every morning, while a western exposure will provide sun in the middle of the day. As you figure out where to build the home additions, consider what time of the day you’ll be using them.
How do you plan to use your sunroom? Perhaps you want a bar where you can host parties or maybe you want to turn it into a family room where you can relax and bond with your kids. Depending on the purpose of the room, you need to make sure the design and materials will keep the space cozy and secured from weather conditions.
