Turning Your Patio into a Sunroom
Many of us love relaxing or entertaining on our patios but wish we could spend more time there. Rainy weather, wind, scorching weather and insects can all limit the amount of time you can spend enjoying your patio. By converting the space into a sunroom, you can enclose it, thereby protecting yourself completely from the elements and extending the amount of time you can use it from warm summer days to anytime rain, hail or shine.
What to Consider When Building a Sunroom
Enclosing a patio into a sunroom will increase the square footage in your home, giving you more usable space. It’s one of the best ways of opening up an entirely new room in your home without the cost of a major renovation or extension. There are a number of approaches you can take, from turning it into a solarium completely made from glass to a properly enclosed room with walls and a roof that match the rest of your home.
There are several steps you must make to ensure you properly construct the sunroom. Consider whether you will require building permits as well as the cost and length of time required to convert your patio into a sunroom. Is your patio cover suitable a roof for a sunroom? Are you able to hook electricity up to the new sunroom easily? Discussing your project with an experienced contractor will help you determine these factors.
Benefits of a Sunroom
While a patio is generally used as a space for entertaining or relaxing, a sunroom can be multiple things. It can act as a bright home office, a playroom for kids, a dining nook or just a second lounge room. A sunroom provides a buffer between your cozy indoor living space and the outdoors, allowing you to enjoy your garden or lawn while keeping out of bad weather.
If you increase the amount of usable space in your home, you also increase the value of the property. The beautiful, open, airy look of a sunroom breaks up the look of a home, adding a unique visual feature to the property. This means the value of the house is increased both in terms of added space and curb appeal
