Choosing the Right House Addition: The Perks of a Sunroom
If you’re seriously considering a house addition, we may have the perfect solution for you. A sunroom could potentially be the most beneficial addition to your home. Besides providing that extra space you’ve been craving – you will get to enjoy a room full of the sun almost all year-round, even during those cooler months.
A sunroom is a more cost-effective option when considering other house additions. Traditional additions require substantial installation, dealing with factors such as plumbing, removing existing walls, heating, etc. With a sunroom, you have the option to use pre-fabricated formats or make it a full-room addition, allowing you to enjoy the benefits within a matter of days or weeks.
So, what are the benefits and significant perks?
The Benefits of Adding a Sunroom
Depending on the materials you select, you can significantly extend your outdoor enjoyment year-round. For example, the beauty of floor-to-ceiling windows or screens means you can allow an abundant amount of light in. It’s the perfect combination of shade and sun as the day progresses. This design even allows you to sit out and watch a thunderstorm or two.
There really are no limits to your vision. Whether you’re envisioning a glass solarium or more of a rustic screened-in look – you’re covered. Keeping up with the existing materials of your exterior, you can use anything from aluminum to vinyl siding. In every shape and size, a sunroom can complement your home’s charm, even improving its curb appeal from the outside.
There’s certainly no shortage of things to do in a sunroom. Take advantage of the light and create a workout room, an additional living space, or a green room. Finding the time or space to work out during the day can be tedious. By adding an exercise sunroom, you won’t clutter existing rooms with equipment for activities.
Additionally, with the availability of ample natural light and protection from the wind and other harsh elements, a greenroom would allow plants, flowers, and produce to thrive.
Best of Both Worlds
While we love the outdoors, our love for outdoor pests – not so much. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a meal in the sun without the worry of a swarm of insects crashing the party? Eating outdoors is probably one of the most enjoyable activities there is, and a sunroom can make this possible through disagreeable weather and more.
Is a Sunroom Worth the Money?
Well, the answer to this question relies heavily on whether you will enjoy all of the benefits listed above. However, if you plan on selling your home in the future, a sunroom is definitely worth the money. So, the next question is?
Does a Sunroom Add Value To a Home?
Any home addition will add value. As to how much depends on many factors: size, type and quality of the expansion.
When it comes to sunrooms, there are various types of sunroom structures. Sunrooms that are manufactured with thermal breaks and double-pane insulated glass and are built on a floating concrete slab will add approximately 50% of the initial investment to the home’s value.
Whereas full-room sunroom additions will provide a much higher return on investment. These sunrooms will have a solid foundation like the rest of the home and have electricity, cooling, and heating.
