Get Creative with Added Space in Your Home: 3 Fun and Fabulous Ideas for Your Sunroom Addition


Looking for more living space, but not the hassle of a big construction project and all of the planning that goes with it? A sunroom makes a great, cost effective addition to any home. It also has the added benefit of being able to function as the ideal space for many activities and uses.
  • Art Studio -- If you're a painter or sculptor, then you know how difficult it is to find adequate space to store art supplies. A sunroom addition will give you the room you need for cabinets and shelving to hold your materials. You'll have easier access to everything you need whenever you get in the mood to create an art piece. You won't have to worry as much about how messy things get when you have a dedicated space that's all yours. A sunroom will also provide the essential natural light that artists need and love. With all of the glass in the room, you'll find yourself more connected to the outdoors and inspired by nature's beauty, which will allow your creative juices to flow!


  • Children's Playroom -- A sunroom makes a fun play space for children. When you use insulated glass in the room, it's cozy all year around. Your kids will love the natural light. They'll feel like they're part of the outdoors, regardless of the weather or time of year. When they can't go outside, they won't get antsy or feel cooped up as long as they can enjoy the open feeling that a sunroom will give them. You'll have extra space to keep all their board games, jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, and other toys. Include bean bag chairs and a soft rug in the middle for comfort. You can even set up tables in each corner for different uses such as art projects, reading, or a place to work on model toys. You can even include a spot for drinks and snacks.


  • Pet Sanctuary -- If you have pets, a sunroom addition will become their favorite spot. It's as close as they can get to nature without actually being outdoors. You can put your pet carriers in the space, along with their food and water dishes. Place their beds in the room and all of their toys. If you have space, you can even include a grooming station. You should also add some comfortable chairs or a couch in the sunroom, so you and your pets have a soft place to sit and spend time together while enjoying the scenery through the beautiful glass. If you want to give them access to the outdoors from your sunroom, tile the room, so it's easier to clean and include a pet door.

The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling.
