Different Types of Sunrooms

Sunrooms come in many shapes and forms. Some are covered patios while others are enclosed completely with glass walls from floor to ceiling. Others are in the form of a solarium or conservatory.

No matter what shape or size a sunroom comes in, deciding to add one to your home is a great idea. Do some research and then decide which style is best to suit your and your family’s needs.

Sunrooms

Sunrooms are typically an addition to the back of your house that is enclosed with glass walls and screens. A sunroom is designed to make the most out of the design so that light filters in at optimal times and levels.

A sunroom has many benefits, such as providing a spot to hide out from the rest of the house when you are feeling cooped in, or a great place to have people over for lunch.

Sunrooms offer the bonus of you not being bitten by bugs and insects while still enjoying the great outdoors. They can be used as an extra space for guests or even as a home office.

You can even install a ceiling fan to give you that balmy, breezy effect. Sunrooms also offer the added bonus of improving your home’s equity.

Screen Rooms or Patio Covers

Screen rooms are a little less expensive than the addition of a complete sunroom. A screen room can take an already existing patio and enclose it in screening. Another great thing about a screen room is that it does an amazing job of keeping the bugs out.

A patio cover works in much the same way. A patio cover can keep the glare and heat from the sun out, but cannot do much in the way of repelling insects and bugs.

Conservatories

Conservatories have an origin of summer days gone by in the English countryside. Today, they add beauty and elegance to your home. They also add much in the way of home equity. A tastefully done conservatory can let in the light, be a place to entertain, or even be a lush, plush sanctuary garden.

Just the look and style alone add a touch of elegance to your home’s exterior.

Solarium

A solarium is typically an enclosed sunroom, but the intrinsic difference is that it typically has a glass roof as well. A solarium has a more modern design than a conservatory and can be a stand-alone site or a greenhouse for plants.

These are just some of the different types of sunrooms that you can explore to see which one is best for you.
