If you have space in your home for a sunroom addition, then it could be a great investment since they provide a place to enjoy the outdoors without the harmful UV rays, hot weather or insects. A sunroom is a glass and screen outdoor living room that lets you be one with nature from a protected space. They can be installed on a wood or concrete foundation and are also known as a patio room, solarium, or Florida room.
Whether you’re dreaming of a four-season sunroom to be used only in the summer months, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greater Grand Rapids, the top interior and exterior remodeling company, has you covered. Here’s what you need to know about the pros and cons of this project:
Natural Lighting – Sunrooms are typically designed to let in a lot of natural light—so much that you might even enjoy the benefit of cost savings on your electric bills.
Versatility – Unlike other room additions and makeovers, like basement or kitchen remodeling, which have clearly defined roles within homes, sunrooms provide spaces that are highly versatile. It can be a great quiet spot to catch up on some reading, or the perfect yoga room, or even a nice place to host your guests.
Resale Value – A sunroom addition can help increase the resale value of your home should you ever decide to put it on the market. Of course, the actual value will depend on the size and design quality of the room.
However, sunrooms may not necessarily be for every home. Some cons include:
Relatively High Costs – If the available space in your home is large, then the cost of converting it to a sunroom can be quite high.
Potential Loss of Privacy – Sunrooms are open and bright, bringing the outside in. But this also means the inside can easily be seen from the outside, which can be problematic.
