Comfortably enjoy the outdoors year-round.
Serving as a connection between the indoors and outdoors, the sunroom is an essential space in many households. It is a room that allows you to enjoy your setting year-round. Whether you’re looking for a spot to relax, entertain, or get some work done, a sunroom has a lot to offer – natural light, more space, gorgeous views, and beyond.
From extreme heat to the bitter cold, with the proper insulation, heating, and air conditioning systems, this light-filled room can be enjoyed throughout the year. A natural or gas fireplace provides additional warmth on chilly evenings, creating an inviting atmosphere. Radiant floor heat is another option, so homeowners are able to comfortably enjoy the space in winter (even without socks). A ceiling fan is an option, as well.
Choose a spot that takes advantage of the views. Whether you live on a wooded lot, by the lake, or near a sprawling field, the sunroom is a perfect opportunity to showcase your backdrop. Floor-to-ceiling windows, transoms, French doors, and a large patio door offer natural light and ventilation and help frame your surroundings.
A sunroom that serves multiple purposes will be used more often. Perhaps, the space includes a sitting area and a bar. This is the perfect spot for either relaxing after the workday or entertaining a group on the weekend. Maybe the sunroom features a reading nook and a table for dining. It’s the ideal location to enjoy some alone time or share a meal with your family. There are endless options to make this room work harder for you.
It’s important to position the sunroom near other entertaining spaces – the kitchen, family room, powder room, and patio. If it’s easily accessible from frequently used rooms, you may enjoy the space more often, and it extends your living area.
