When investing in a property, many of us have two main concerns. The first: will the building be right for our family, meeting all of our needs and allowing us to grow? And the second: will this property be a good investment long-term. Can I add value and make a profit on the initial expense somewhere down the line?
Adding and altering features such as attic space, garden landscaping, and creating an extension can all help with both of these concerns. There is another option, however, which can both improve the quality of family life, and be very appealing for future buyers. We have assembled the top benefits of the ultimate luxury addition—the sunroom.
What Is A Sunroom?
Some people have slightly different definitions and expectations, but at the most basic level, a sunroom is a small porch or enclosed space which is specifically designed to allow as much light to enter the area as possible. This is usually achieved through careful placement of the room—east or west facing depending on when the occupiers would prefer to use the space as well as floor to ceiling windows to allow maximum sunlight.
Why Should I Have One?
A sunroom can have numerous benefits—not least increasing the future value of your home.
Expand Your Living Space
A sunroom is an ideal way to extend the square footage of your home. A traditional brick and mortar extension is usually more expensive and lacks the advantage of being able to enjoy every ray of the sun from within the comfort of your own home. You can add even more space while creating an excellent entertainment area by adding a deck off your sunroom. Be sure to utilize only the most qualified sunroom and deck builders for your project.
Enjoy The View
The most popular location for a sunroom is at the back of the property, or on the side which offers the best views. If you have a stunning garden or gorgeous sea views, why hide them away and limit your exposure through a tiny piece of glass? Instead, make the most of it and allow yourself to gaze upon a beautiful view any time of the day or night.
Bring The Outside In
In a similar vein, a sunroom allows you to make the most of and enjoy the seasons of the year. You will be rewarded with a fluid, ever-changing view from the windows, and be able to experience the beauty of a snow-covered winters morning while staying cozy and warm indoors! Similarly, if mosquitos and unwanted nasties plague your area during the summer, you can take in the glorious sunshine with no fear of being eaten alive.
As well as the aesthetic advantages of a sunroom, there is one benefit which will appeal to the more pragmatic homeowner: savings. Having a room made mostly of glass will save the amount of electricity required to light and heat the space, and this can be reflected in your energy bills. Some homeowners even choose to make the most of the suntrap with solar panels. Your family could be eco-friendly warriors and save precious money all at the same time.
