A Sunroom Addition Is Beautiful Even In Temperate Climates

In some parts of the world, a sunroom addition is a logical extension of your house.  In Florida, the sunroom addition is such an essential part of the architecture that people call it the Florida room.  Of course, you don’t have to live in Florida to have a sunroom.

The house in the board game Mystery Mansion, essentially a children’s version of Clue, has a sunroom addition called a solarium.  In other words, almost anyone can benefit from a sunroom, not just people who live in very sunny locales.

The Benefits of a Sunroom Addition

There are plenty of reasons a sunroom can make your house more pleasant, and not all of them have to do with the sun.  These are some ways a sunroom can be a good investment:

  • When it’s too cold to go out, you can catch what little sunshine there is with your sunroom.  Even a little bit of sun exposure can help you avoid seasonal affective disorder and vitamin D deficiency.

  • Your dinner guests can smoke cigarettes in the sunroom without making the rest of the house smell like smoke.

  • The sunroom is a great place to retreat and daydream.

A Sunroom Addition Is a Manageable Remodeling Project

Adding a sunroom to your house does not have to turn your life upside down.  In fact, building one will not disturb most of the other rooms in your house.  Even better, it will give you a good return on your investment for increasing the resale value of your home.
