Does your home have a sunroom? After all, many homes have decks, patios or porches but what about a sunroom?
Have you ever considered adding a sunroom to your home? Why or why not? Most homes (and even some office spaces) have floor plans that will lend themselves nicely to sunrooms. And, there are many qualified architects and builders who can easily make this design element a part of your home. Not sure if a sunroom is right for you? Consider this:
You are the perfect candidate for a sunroom if…
- You love to garden but have run out of places to put your plants.
- You enjoy the sounds and sights of nature but prefer to leave the bugs outside.
- You want an area of your home for entertaining, without always being in the kitchen.
- You want to watch the sunrise or sunset but enjoy the comforts of the indoors.
- You want a studio area where you can pursue hobbies where natural lighting is best.
- You live in the South and want to enjoy the summer sunshine yet still be in the shade.
- You live in a cooler region and want to enjoy the beauty of spring, but without braving the cool, and sometimes damp, temperatures.
- You need a quiet getaway for those days when you just want to be left alone.
- You need a place for the kids to play while you work nearby.
- Your office space is dull and dreary and you need somewhere to rejuvenate-even briefly-during the workday.
- You want to get a jump start on your vegetable garden by planting seeds or small plants earlier than the ground outside is ready for.
A sunroom can offer all of the above and even more. It is all up to you and how you want to utilize this space. For some homeowners, the sunroom is merely a small extension of a living area or bedroom, while for others, sunrooms are designed to be used for large group entertainment. Other sunrooms become greenhouses during the off-season; this is especially nice if one lives in a Northern region and does not want to lose the plants from the summer.
While the sunroom does allow one to see the great outdoors without actually being a part of it, it can mean that those outside the sunroom can easily see into the area. While for some this may not be a problem, other homeowners may wish to have the benefits of a sunroom along with more privacy. If so, then consider having curtains made or blinds to retain your privacy while still enjoying the sun.
