Are you thinking about adding a sunroom to your home? It’s a big investment so you’ve probably started to do some research on different types of sunrooms. To find out more information on the basics of the three most common types of sunrooms: all-season sunrooms, three-season sunrooms, and porch enclosures check out this previous post.
After you know the differences, the big decision has to be made and we think there is a key question you can ask to help you decide which type of sunroom will best fit your lifestyle. What are you going to be doing in your new sunroom? Once you’ve answered that question, you can move forward with your exciting project.
A sunroom is the perfect transitional space in your home. Not quite indoors, but not outdoors either, a sunroom can be an oasis, a retreat from the everyday chaos of your life. However, not everyone envisions their sunroom the same way and what is the right sunroom for some, might be the wrong sunroom for others. Let’s dig a little deeper to help you make your crucial choice.
Are you imagining drinking your morning coffee while gazing out over your yard even during the coldest months of the year? Perhaps you want to take advantage of all that natural light and set up your office in your sunroom. Do you practice yoga? Sunrooms are a wonderful space to set up your yoga retreat. How about some extra space where you can wow your friends with your entertaining skills and your awesome view all at the same time? If any or all of this sounds perfect to you, then we would suggest adding an all-season sunroom to your home. All-season sunrooms are the option that has the highest-rated energy efficiency windows and the best insulation. Add a sunroom heating/cooling system and you will have a comfortable, temperature-controlled space that you can enjoy every single day of the year, no matter what the weather may be.
Perhaps you are a bit more concerned about affordability and you think your sunroom is a space that you will be happy to forgo during the coldest months of the year. Maybe you just want to eat breakfast while enjoying your garden during the spring and summer months. Or, you might travel during the colder months and you won’t be here to utilize your sunroom. In that case, a three-season sunroom is probably the right fit for you. Three-seasons sunrooms utilize single-paned windows with tempered glass. They are best suited for use during months with milder weather but, they provide the same amazing views and the same indoor-outdoor feel as an all-season sunroom.
Do you have a porch that you never use? Maybe you are a little cramped for space and are looking for an affordable way to increase the square footage of your home. Perhaps you’ve been looking to add a sunroom to your home but, you want a cost-conscious option. A porch enclosure is the best, and most affordable, way to add a sunroom to your home. You can say goodbye to the dirt, pollen, and bugs that can be found on your porch and say hello to a temperature-controlled indoor space that can be used year-round. Turn your porch into a true sitting room that you can use even during the coldest month by adding a heating and cooling system. The possibilities are endless.
