How A Sunroom Stacks Up as Compared to A Traditional Home Addition

If you are considering a home addition, you might want to read a few side-by-side comparisons between a new room of glass and traditional home construction.


The name “sunroom” itself conjures up an airy, light-filled retreat where families can snuggle into a cozy chair and read, sew, have tea or a cocktail. Your new room can be the setting for all of these activities, but it would also bring several other benefits to the table over traditional construction.

1. When you add a Four Seasons Sunroom to your home, you will not need an architect since your custom design ideas are most often included in the project cost of your sunroom.
2. Since a sunroom construction is almost entirely made up of vinyl and glass, the upkeep of the exterior will be minimal.
3. Our sunroom additions often come with a warranty, unlike augmentations built by independent contractors.

Home For the Holidays! 7 Christmas Tree Decor Tips to Enhance Your Sunroom

Your sunroom is a great location for your Christmas tree because a sunroom's structure really helps to showcase your tree's beauty. By placing your Christmas tree in your sunroom, you ensure that your tree's decor can be seen and admired from the inside and outside of your home. Below are seven tips to help you keep your Christmas tree fresh and beautiful throughout the holiday season.



1) Select a prominent but safe location for your Christmas tree. The journey to a beautifully decorated sunroom begins with your selection of a safe location for your tree. Make sure your tree is at least three feet away from any heaters, vents, or fireplaces.
