Some homeowners refer to them as “Florida rooms;” others call them “solariums,” “garden rooms,” or “sun porches.” Here at Spectus, we call them “sunrooms.”
The advantages offered by sunrooms are quite numerous, so here are six great reasons why you should consider adding a sunroom to your home. And yes, the benefits are the same whether you’re talking about cottage sunrooms or second storey sunrooms and conservatories!
1. Natural sunlight is beneficial
There is no denying that a short amount of time relaxing in luminous natural sunlight can help anyone feel instantly better.
Having a sunroom in your home will ensure that you always have space to recharge, curl up, and get away from it all. In fact, having a sunroom is like having a permanent area in your home for a mid-day getaway.
2. Mother Nature is your view
For many homeowners, the few windows that are in their home aren’t sufficient to showcase the majestic beauty that lies just outside.
By having a glass or screened sunroom, you will be able to marvel at Mother Nature’s grandeur on a daily basis. Switch off your TV and sit in your sunroom with a cup of tea, a book, and a beautiful view.
3. You can stargaze
In addition to the daytime delights that having a sunroom can bring, there are also some nightly benefits. We all love to look up at the stars and the Moon, yet for most people, doing this has become more of a luxury.
When you add a sunroom to your home, you will be able to watch the heavenly show every night.
4. There’s more living space
It has never been easier to add square footage to your house than by simply adding a sunroom. An elegant sunroom will not only add value to your home, but it will provide you and your family with extra comfortable living space. This is especially true of sunrooms for bungalows.
Furthermore, sunrooms are fully customizable depending on the space available, your budget and your chosen design. Whether you want a screen room, or an aluminum, vinyl, or glass solarium, Spectus can make your sunroom dreams come true.
5. There’s benefits of being outside, in the comfort of your home
Light is an essential element of architecture, as it expands even the smallest of rooms. Adding a sunroom to your home is not just another great way to get Vitamin D during the winter months, but it will also help you see your home in an entirely new light.
Sunrooms are quite literally a way of bringing the outdoors inside. You can fill the room with comfortable furniture that won’t be weather-worn, and drink your morning coffee without worrying about mosquitoes and pollen! Allow yourself to have the option of enjoying all the benefits of being outside, without actually being out.
6. You can take the time to slow down
Modern life is so hectic that a lot of us accidentally miss the living it part despite constant resolutions to live mindfully.
But the presence of a sunroom in your home will force you to slow down, and enjoy what you’ve worked so hard to build. When you are keenly aware of the beauty around you, you will want to relax and stop. In your sunroom, you can just let your worries fade away; forget why you were anxious or stressed, and enjoy some alone time.
As soon as you add a sunroom to your home, you and your housemates will wonder how you ever lived without it! You will notice pretty soon that all your friends and family will be finding a lot of reasons to hang out in your sunroom.
Whether your kids will use it as a study area, or you and your partner will make it your very own romantic space to simply get away from the hustle and bustle of daily living, adding a sunroom to your home is just like adding a little sunshine into your life.
