Major Benefits of Adding a Sunroom to Your Home

Sunrooms, or Florida rooms, as many people call them, serve as an excellent spot to unwind. But most people wonder, “Is a sunroom addition to my house worth the hype?” A sunroom gives your home a smooth transition from indoor to outdoor living without the fear of interference from external elements like the wind. But besides abundant sunlight, there are other benefits. Here are some of the benefits of adding a sunroom:

1. Adding Value to Your Home

If you are like most homeowners, you compare the cost against the value before investing in any home improvement project. Adding a sunroom to your home enables you to enjoy a higher real estate value.

The room will increase the square footage of your home, not to mention boost curb appeal. When it’s time to resell the home, buyers will be willing to pay more, making the sunroom addition a worthy investment. 

2. Extra Living Space

Notably, how often you can use the sunroom depends on the type of sunroom you choose. You can use the space as an office, a family room, or a space for your art projects. Your sunroom can either be a three-season or a four-season room. 

With the former, you can use the space for three seasons: spring, summer, and fall. The lack of climate control means you can’t use it during winter. On the other hand, a four-season sunroom has climate control so you can use it all year round. For that reason, four-season sunrooms are more expensive than three-season ones. 

3. Enjoying the Natural Sunlight

Daily exposure to natural sunlight has proven to boost physical and mental wellness. For instance, you get a vitamin D boost, strengthening your immunity and keeping your bones and heart healthy.

There is also a direct link between exposure to sunlight and lower blood pressure. Besides, more sunlight can elevate your mood and help you sleep better at night. Adding a sunroom to your home can improve your quality of life.  So if you’ve ever wondered, “Why should I add a sunroom to my home?” think about the health benefits.

5. Nurture Your Love for Plants

A sunroom is a glorious space to nurture your love for plants, especially if you have a four-season sunroom. Here, you can grow various plants that would otherwise be challenging to grow indoors.

Some plants that thrive in a sunroom include hibiscus, Boston ferns, and spider plants. Better still, some of these plants give your home a decorative touch. However, before you introduce plants to your sunroom, it’s important to research their native environment and do the best you can to mimic it. You also need to keep an eye out for pests. 

6. Saving on Heating Costs

With a well-built sunroom, you can harness its warmth and reduce your reliance on your HVAC system. The most important step in building an energy-efficient sunroom is choosing the right windows. A professional contractor can advise you on the best type and the most efficient orientation for your sunroom.
