Live In The Light
The most successful sunrooms flow seamlessly with the entire ground floor to provide truly flexible living space. As you’re investing in new flooring, plastering and electrical wiring for the extension, it’s often worth getting the full potential from your investment by updating the adjacent rooms also
If you’re considering adding a sunroom to your home, consider the following:
-Think about how you will want to utilize your new space
-Choose features that blend with the style of your home
-Investigate neighborhood height restrictions and setbacks before you break ground
Extend your kitchen
Temperature control is very important. Make sure you integrate the HVAC with adjoining rooms, particularly if you extend your kitchen to include the new sunroom addition. Ceiling fans are always a nice touch. Choose fabrics that are sun resistant and window coverings that will offer privacy and sun protection.
Formal living in a garden room
It may be tempting to compromise on the size of your new sunroom to save money, but wishing, once it’s built, that you’d included extra square footage is frustrating—especially if you find your furniture won’t fit.
Bring the outdoors in
The design of your garden room and the way it looks from the outside is important but one of the greatest joys a Sunroom can bring is the view. A planning priority must be to consider how the windows and doors can be positioned to make the most of what you see when you’re gazing outside.
