Sunrooms are a commonly known addition to a home that provides a perfect place to entertain guests, relax, or just enjoy the outdoors without dealing with annoying pesky insects and blazing heat. If you still aren’t exactly sure what a sunroom is, then you may have heard them called solariums, garden rooms, sun porches, or patio rooms. Sunrooms are mostly custom-designed to complement the home to which they are connected. Most often, a sunroom is located on the side or back of the house, and your backyard patios can be used as the base for the room. For the majority of sunrooms, a brick or wood base will be required to support the large glass or plastic panels that let the sunlight shine into the room.
There are many great things sunrooms can do for you, your family, and your home:
Increase Home Value
Adds square footage, as well as extra home space, all while adding value to your home. A study conducted by a group of builders, and estimated that every 1,000 square feet added to a home increases its sale price by a minimum of 30 percent.
Enjoy Outdoor Views
A sunroom or screen room addition can give you the same desired views without actually being outside. Sunrooms add to your view and connect you to the outdoors. No matter rain or shine you can enjoy the outdoors without being outside.
