What is Your Favorite Part of Home? How Transition Spaces (Interior to Exterior) Add Comfort and Cozy Factor To Both Home and Garden

During the pleasingly warm weather months, a sunroom serves three important purposes ...

  1. No matter the weather, a sunroom or covered patio provides a transition from indoors to outdoors by allowing sheltered yet open access to both areas.
  2. Sunrooms and patio covers allow you to really enjoy your yard and garden by affording sweeping views of those outdoor spaces. 
  3. Sunrooms and LifeRoom style patio covers add valuable living space to your home -- and this last benefit is one that can last the whole year through if you include a heat source such as a gas fireplace or under-the-floor heating! 

Research shows that nature is good for us. It's calming and nurturing, yet, if we're honest, it's not always cooperative, even during the warm months. A sudden spring shower or summer thunderstorm can send us running for the door, or the backyard mosquito population can make an evening patio barbecue less than perfect. That's where you'll find that having a sunroom can bring you that transitional space that allows you to soak in the beauty of nature whether nature's "cooperating" with your plans or not!


A Sunroom is Like a Giant "Window" on the (Backyard) World!

Spring is when the backyard garden really comes alive! After months of bare trees and lots of gray and brown, spring brings the color our souls have been craving. Your sunroom allows you to drink it in with panoramic views that invite all of that soul-soothing natural beauty indoors, even when it's showery or the sun outside is relentless. In the sunroom, screens and windows keep the area bug-free, and blinds or shades can tone down the heat of the summer sun.

How to Make Your Sunroom Work Beautifully in Any Weather

With a little smart planning (i.e., adding a heat source, strategically siting the sunroom to make the most of the sun's rays in winter, adding shades or blinds to control glare and heat in summer, a ceiling fan, etc.) you can create a sunroom that's the perfect "bridge" between the indoors and outdoors, and add year-round square footage to your home, all for less money than you would typically spend on a traditional addition.

Sunroom Vs. Home Addition: Comparing the Costs

If you're considering a home addition, you might want to consider making it a sunroom instead of a conventional room. People who add sunrooms seldom regret the decision. They're bright, airy, versatile, and they cost less than a traditional home addition for several reasons. Read on to discover how sunrooms add up as compared to a typical home addition ...


No Architect FeesIn most cases, custom design is included in the project cost of a sunroom. When you consider the ability to skip the hefty fees charged by most architects, this fact alone makes great sense from a financial standpoint. Plus sunrooms typically have better aesthetics, offering European styling and a vast array of customizable options.
Less MaintenanceVinyl and glass -- the primary materials used in sunroom construction -- require far less maintenance than a wooden exterior that needs periodic painting, pressure-washing, etc.
