If you are seeking to add an extra space to your home where you can unwind and connect with the outdoors, a sun-room is a perfect addition. A sun-room will guarantee transitional spaces that can connect your home with your surroundings while protecting you from the sun, pesky insects, and other weather elements. Imagine having to enjoy the best of indoors and outdoors at the same time while you relax with a good book and wine. Sun-rooms can also be called solarium’s, garden rooms, sun porches or patio rooms. Typically less than other additions, sun-rooms offer more window space than wall space to bring in much light as possible.
If you are thinking of adding a sun-room to your home, it is essential to know the different type of sun-rooms and the immense benefit they offer.
Types of Sun-rooms:
There are two basic types of Sun-rooms – Three seasons porch and Four season porch.
Three Season Porch: Three season porches are primarily equipped to give an absolute comfort for summer, spring and fall. The three-season porch is not insulated, and as such can be chilly during winter.
Four Season Porch: Also referred to as an “all-season porch,” the four-season porch is designed in a way that includes heating and cooling. Valid for all season, you can enjoy your porch in whatever way you want knowing that you will be comfortable all season.
Why add Sun-rooms?
A sun-room is an ideal home improvement addition and can be enjoyed by anyone. They offer huge benefits that include:
Outdoor Feel: One of the main advantages of sun-rooms is to enjoy the outdoors without having to deal with the hassles of environmental elements.
Extra Space: If you feel your house is getting crowded due to a growing population or belongings, a sun-room can offer you extra space. Your sun-room can serve a various purpose depending on your needs.
Higher Real Estate Value: A bigger house will command a good market value. A home with sun-room? Even bigger.
Lifestyle Upgrade: With a sun-room, you can try out new hobbies like basking in the sun, bird watching, or book reading. It can even provide an avenue for family bonding and serve as a playground for the kids.
Health Benefit: Exposure to sunlight can lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, improve your immune system and boost your vitamin D level.
Sun-rooms and Vaulted Ceilings
The sun-room on its own is a fantastic home improvement addition. However, if you want your sun-room to be in perfect resonance with the beautiful scenery that surrounds it, you should consider a vaulted ceiling. A vaulted ceiling can provide even more space and allow for a better view. If you are a light lover, you are going to fall in love with the idea of your rooms and sun-rooms having vaulted ceilings. Asides from openness and air, you can add more windows to your home and sun-rooms if you use a vaulted ceiling. If you genuinely require more light, crisp and more beautiful scenery, choose a sun-room with a vaulted ceiling.
Sun-rooms are a versatile way of adding value, enjoying the outdoors, and creating a beautiful space that can serve various functions in your home.
