Sunrooms are important if we want to maximize sun exposure in our house. These new areas can be as useful and comfortable as other parts in our house if properly managed. Fortunately, sunrooms are quite easy and quick to build, unlike areas with standard mortar and brick wall. Sunrooms are unique because, we can enjoy both indoor and outdoor surrounding at the same time. They can become the quite retreat area for nature lovers. Normal rooms are not able to allow enough light into our house. They can be constructed at any place and we will be protected from unfriendly climatic conditions, such as snow. Mosquitoes and other annoying insects will be unable to enter sunrooms. Sunrooms are simple the best year-end solution to experience the outdoor situation.
Sunrooms should be designed properly to protect us and make us feel comfortable, even in the coldest winter nights and most scorching summer days. It should be a perfect place where the whole family can enjoy a cup of coffee, despite the intense outdoor condition. They may lead a proper touch to our lifestyle. Building sunrooms can be completed in just a few weeks and there are some sellers who sell kits for this purpose. It is also a good idea to beautify our sunrooms and they can be filled with proper furniture and appliances. If sunrooms are located on the attic, we may put some recreational furniture, such as exercise equipments, TV sets, music systems and comfortable sofas. Spas could also be placed inside sunrooms, decorated with potted plants, perfumed candles and others.
We may also use wooden shelves to accommodate books and other things. If we want to relax, we could put rocking chair, lamps and cushions. For dining purposes and there could be enclosed patio with shelves, floral vases, chairs and sofas. Some people also put small fridge and microwave, if they want to have quick snack in the sunroof. Other use of sunrooms is for home office space. They could become an excellent space to enhance productivity, instead in the normal rooms. We should consider proper sunroom plans and we need proper designs that match our budget. While many sunrooms have neutral colors, they could also have colors that match our house. It is important to make sure that we install proper roofing, glazing and insulation system.
The height of the floor should perfectly match the floor of our house. Sunrooms shouldn’t restrict our garden views. The shape and style of our sunrooms should go well with other parts of the room. It means that sunrooms could enhance the whole appearance of our house. There are different designs of sunrooms, including conservatory, cathedral, curved and straight. We may also use elegant and curved solarium design to create balance and graceful lines. Solariums are generally energy efficient, with high visibility and low reflectivity, which can be useful during summer. However, improper sunrooms designs could create a local greenhouse effect, forcing us to install an air conditioning unit, which is not efficient.
