In recent times, sunroom additions have quite popular and for good reason. They allow you to enjoy the surroundings all year round. A sunroom provides protection from the sun and the rain. It will also enhance the exterior of your home. If you are planning to add a sunroom, you have to consider a few things. To start with, you should understand how you plan to use the space. If you want it to be usable all year round, you have to install a four-season sunroom. They are costlier but they will enhance the value of your home.
Adding a sunroom to your home is easier than building a new room or patio. Sunrooms also cost less.
People have been installing sunrooms for a while. Modern sunrooms look more attractive than old ones. They also consume less energy. Sunrooms do not require much maintenance. Also they tend to complement the design of most homes.
Sunrooms can be classified into three groups depending upon their use:
If you only want to enjoy the space during the late spring and early fall, an open porch is more than sufficient. Thanks to its open design, it doesn’t have any heating or cooling systems. An open porch will be practically useless during the hot summer and cold winter seasons.
Three-season sunrooms are insulated structures and that makes them usable throughout the year. They don’t have their own heating and cooling systems. So if the winter is too cold or the summer is too hot, you will probably not be able to use this space.
Four season sunrooms
A four-season sunroom is a well-insulated structure that has its own heating and cooling systems. It uses energy efficient framing. You can use a four-season sunroom all year round. They aren’t different from other parts of the home and will be considered as extra living space during home valuations.
There are mainly 3 types of sunroom designs:
Cathedral sunrooms are hugely popular. They have a front-peaked wall that allows light to enter. Cathedral sunrooms offer excellent view of the surroundings. You can make the view even better by installing a glass-paned roof.
Want to add a Victorian appeal to your home? Well, you should consider installing a conservatory sunroom. Conservatory sunrooms sport a classical design. They have a domed roof that will make your entire home look more elegant and beautiful. Conservatory sunrooms require much less maintenance. Because of their arched design, conservatory sunrooms offer a 360 degree view of the surroundings.
Straight/curved eave sunrooms
Straight or curved eave sunrooms have a straight angled roof made of glass or an opaque material. They look modern and consume less energy. These types of sunrooms are available in both modern and traditional designs.
