If you’ve ever set foot in a sunroom addition, you know what a magical space it can be. Sunrooms are a real asset to any home, providing families with a little extra space and increasing a home’s value.
If you’re sold on the idea of buying a sunroom, and you begin the buying process by checking out your options, you are likely to find yourself overwhelmed. There are a lot of choices! Knowing which one is right for you can be difficult.
As a leading sunroom company in Memphis, TN, Marshall Brothers Home Improvement is here to help. Here are the four things you should consider when narrowing down your sunroom options.
How Will You Use Your Sunroom?
The first thing you should do is think about exactly how you want to use your sunroom. Will it be a sort of indoor greenhouse where you keep your plants, or will you use it as a home office? Will it be a space where you entertain, or will you want to relax and unwind in your sunroom at the end of a busy day?
Thinking about exactly how you want to use your space will help you narrow down the options in the following categories.
What Kind of Sunroom Styles Do You Like?
Sunrooms have come a long way from the basic square sunrooms of yesterday. Today, you have many style choices that include:
- Conservatories with glass roofs
- Traditional gabled sunrooms with pointed roofs
- Integrated sunrooms that fit in with your home's architecture
- Studio sunrooms that feature gently sloped roofs
Deciding how you want to use your sunroom can help you narrow down your choices, but you should also choose a style that will look good with the style of your home.
Don’t forget about choosing between a three season room or a four season room too!
How Big Do You Want Your Sunroom Addition to Be?
Sunrooms aren’t constructed as one-size-fits-all spaces. You can choose a size that works for your home and your family.
If you want to entertain in your space, you’ll want to choose a large sunroom. If you want to use the space as an office, a smaller space may be all you need.
Your existing home should help guide your decision as well. The amount of space you have for a sunroom may be what dictates how large it will be. In addition, if you have a relatively small home, choosing an overly large sunroom may look out of place. A smaller sunroom would be a better choice.
Get the Best View from Your Sunroom
The view is an important consideration as well. Sunrooms are known for blurring the lines between indoors and out, but how much of a view do you want?
It can get hot and sunny in Memphis. You may decide tinted glass is the best way to keep your room cool, or you may want to choose a sunroom that accommodates blinds easily, so you can use your sunroom in the evening. If you want to blur the lines between indoors and out as much as possible, choose a screened in room.
You want to make sure you love your sunroom installation.
