Are you looking for a way to improve your home and its functionality, as well as its beauty? Consider turning your attention outdoors. A sunroom addition or a patio can change the way you use your home and the way you look at it.
What is A Sunroom Addition?
A sunroom addition is a space that’s added onto your house. It’s usually added onto the back of your home. It may be separated from the main house by a door, or it can become an extension of your house without a divider. Sunrooms are generally heavily windowed on three walls. They reduce the space in your yard, but they often quickly become the most used rooms in the house.
Depending on where you live a sunroom can become a warm space to enjoy during cooler winter months or a comfortable place to hang out during the summer without the intense rays of the sun.
Sunrooms not only add enjoyment to a home and provide you with more usable space, they also add value to your home. Should you decide to sell your home it will likely sell for more simply because you have this beautiful space. Sunrooms are also fairly inexpensive to heat and cool. Energy efficient blinds or drapes and windows can help keep a sunroom cool in the summer and the sun’s rays can warm your home in the winter.
Patios are outdoor spaces. They are not part of your home’s structure. However a well-designed patio can become your second favorite place to be. Depending on the direction your yard faces, your patio can be covered to protect you from the sun and weather. You can install a grill or outdoor kitchen and enjoy meals outside.
Your patio can also become your sanctuary. Imagine a fountain, a hammock or comfortable lounge and some music piped through overhead speakers. Sounds great, right? With easy to lay patio tiles and a plan you can turn any backyard into a dream patio. Again, it’s an easy way to add value and enjoyment to your home.
How to Choose?
So which is better; a sunroom or a patio? The answer may depend on your needs, your budget, and the rules in your neighborhood. Some Home Owners Associations may not approve home additions. Explore your options, take a look at your preferences, and compare. You can build a sunroom on a budget and you can create a high end patio space – decide what works best for you and start embracing the outdoors with a sunroom or patio.
