Is It Worth Adding A Sunroom To Your House?

It’s a little different from its name. In fact, the sunroom not only allows you to bathe in the sun but more importantly, it adds more diversified functions and housing experience to your house. Therefore, the sunroom is an independent space between the house and the garden, providing a comfortable and transparent living experience.

This kind of sunroom is different from other traditional ones and can be used by the owner throughout the year. In addition to the comfort brought by the space extension, the sunroom can also enable residents to enjoy other benefits, such as heating, air conditioning, energy-saving and safety. High demands on energy, safety, comfort and design mean that you can feel happy in the sunroom. However, this kind of room is also very expensive in terms of decoration cost. It can keep warm and cool to keep the room cool. The cost of the efficiency of this kind of equipment is inherently high.

In the design process, what needs to be considered is what impact the renovation of the sunroom will have on the adjacent rooms. The modern home environment changes mean that the previous small independent rooms are allowed to be transformed into more freely designed spaces, such as kitchens or family activity areas, which have become the core area of ​​the entire house.

I wrote earlier about the importance of having secured doors and for a sunroom might even be more important to have a good look at how to secure this part of your house. The reason is that in most cases it is at the backside of the house and out of sight of the road in front of your house.

In such a very important core area for family activities, if a sunroom can be added or transformed, the overall living experience will greatly improve. However, whether this sunroom needs to be accompanied by a kitchen, living room, dining area, or garden depends on whether the original space is limited. The key point is that the built sunroom is mostly from a balcony or a terrace, so it is in the whole set. In the living room, visual continuity is particularly important. Although the sunroom is mainly close to the sun, it still has to be consistent with the room’s overall style.

Generally speaking, most of the sunroom will be built in the south of this house, so that the room can have more light and be protected from bad weather. You may like to get up early, or you may be a night owl, so the sunroom orientation may be different. Choose southeast or southwest to get more sunlight. Of course, it also depends on the orientation of your home garden and the space’s size.
