Sunroom 101: What You Should Know (And Why You Need to Build One)

Add on a SunroomTraditionally folks have added sunrooms to their homes to increase entertainment space, add a comfy relaxation room or bring in more natural light. Sunrooms are typically cost-effective and add overall value to your home. Future buyers look at sunroom additions as a positive because of the usable square footage they create no matter how they decide to utilize the space.

There’s a lot to be considered when building any addition, but especially a sunroom. Using a remodeling specialist like Handyman Professionals ensures that your newly created space will be in code and offers a reliable resource to help you decide whether you need a three-season sunroom (one used spring through fall and typically not heated) or a four-season sunroom (which is functional year-round and perfect to double as a guestroom). Below are a few ideas that will get your creative juices flowing as to why you need to build a sunroom and possibilities for the space.

1.) You have a green thumb and need an indoor space for growing and nurturing plants, herbs and the like. All the natural light in the sunroom will make for the perfect atmosphere to show off your gardening skills. Glass roofing panels could be used for even more direct light for serious growers.

2.) A breakfast nook or tea room could be easily attained through the addition of a sunroom. Set a lovely table to share coffee, breakfast, desserts or just as extra seating while entertaining.

Sunroom Addition Remodeling3.) Got kids (or grandkids)? There couldn’t be a better location for a playroom than a sunroom, thanks again to all that amazing natural light that will pour through.

4.) A combination TV room and exercise room seems so much more enjoyable when you invite the outdoors in, and that’s what a sunroom feels like! A treadmill within view of the TV will pass the minutes easily and a bed swing might be an idea for a cozy corner and some ballgame watching.

5.) Does your home office need an upgrade? Perhaps consider relocating it to the sunroom where natural light will lift your mood and be an exciting space to host a client.

Everyone’s reason for adding a sunroom is different, but one thing is a constant. You need a good team to help steer your design to blend well with your existing home features. Schedule a consultation with Handyman Professionals and take the worry out of your construction project.
