Home Renovation – Extend Your Home with a Sun Room
It’s hard to imagine the heat and glorious sunshine of summer’s past when we are stuck in the middle of winter. But what if you could enjoy more natural light and the natural warmth of the sun even in the depths of winter? With a four-season sunroom, you could enjoy this, as well as welcome extra space. Is a sunroom worth it?
Sunroom or conservatory?
A conservatory tends to be a plastic, wooden or steel framed addition to the home with glass making up the vast majority of it. A sunroom, on the other hand, is a more ‘solid addition’ in the sense that it is a stylish and permanent extension of the home that is integrated with the property structure.
In other words, a conservatory is a bolt on structure, crudely speaking whereas a sunroom is an extension that grows from the property itself. Both have their pros and cons with both adding much needed extra space to a property.
Soaking up the sun
A sunroom is what it says it is – an extension onto the exterior of a property that enjoys the sun. But because it is well built with both warmth and ventilation, it is a room that can be used all year round.
When the sun is shining during the summer you can enjoy the natural daylight and warmth in comfort (not too hot!) and when the sun is weaker in the winter, you can still enjoy is shimmering golden hue in the warmth of the sunroom.
Why opt for a sunroom?
- Increase property value – because a sunroom tends to be well-designed and a sturdy extension to the property, it is viewed favourably by potential buyers. The extra floor space is also welcomed by many buyers too.
- Versatile – from a place to sit and relax to a music room, indoor plant house, yoga studio to home office, the range of uses and activities that a sunroom at your Glasgow home can accommodate are many and varied. Why opt for anything else?
- More light, more warmth – get it right and the sunroom could flood your home with natural light and warmth. Opt for energy-efficient glass, for example, and you will find the room warmer from the natural energy of the sun and stays warmer too. And yet, it will also feel cooler when the summer temperature starts to creep up. And who would turn down more natural light in their home?
- A hint of luxury – we all want to enjoy our homes with more space, light and warmth. There is a sense of luxury to a sunroom that we think other extensions, conservatories included, can only allude to. With the right styling and quality finish, it will be a room where you will spend most of your time, no matter what the season.
