Designer Evelyn Eshun chats with Matt Jacewicz about the benefits of adding a sunroom to your home.
The benefits of spending time outdoors are widely recognized and quite plain. Now more than ever, these benefits are being reaped not only outside the home, but in it, via sunrooms. A sunroom, also referred to as a patio room/patio enclosure, or solarium, is a glass-enclosed room, comprised of single- or double-paned glass. Not only are they a way for users to enjoy the outdoors, sans insects and unexpected weather, but they can also add instant value to your home. And in today’s real estate market, investing in your home just makes sense.
So, why opt for a sunroom addition as opposed to a regular addition?
The main benefit of adding a sunroom pertains to accessing natural light. For anyone with an affinity for the outdoors, a sunroom can extend the summer season, without leaving your privy to the cold Canadian winter we all know too well.
Did you know adding a sunroom is generally less expensive than installing a regular addition? In some cases, thousands of dollars less.
Don’t have the cash for a tropical vacation this year? No problem. A sunroom is the gift that keeps on giving, allowing users to soak up the sun without so much as leaving the house.
Advanced technology has made it possible to fully control the temperature in your sunroom, and in the most energy efficient way! Sunrooms are built to be insulated, so you won’t encounter problems of leaching as you might with your windows and doors.
Multi-function Use Space
Got a small kitchen or living area? Extend it by adding a sunroom. Not only will you use less artificial light throughout the day, but you’ll have a lovely place to entertain guests and convene with the family.
