Sunshine has the ability to reduce stress by improving your mood. This is why so many homeowners are making the decision to add a sun room onto their home. There are many ways that you can put a sun room to use, as it is literally one of the most versatile rooms in a home. Whether you use glass or screen to close off your sun room, here are just a few of them:
Since the room is going to be full of sun exposure, it makes perfect sense to allow this area to become a conservatory, an area where plants and grow and thrive. Plants will be able to capture sunlight from every single angle all year without ever having to go outside, which means that you won’t have to worry about them dying due to the freeze. Also, plants are very calming and beautiful to be around, so you could throw in a couple of chairs and a small sofa so that you could entertain a couple of guests every now and again.
If plants aren’t really your thing or you prefer to only have a plant or two in the corner(s) of the sun room, then you may want to consider turning the sun room into an entertainment area where you can explicitly entertain guests when they are over. You can bring in a pool table, television, couch, etc. to basically turn it into a “man cave”. It’s perfect to either house a game night or for the boys to just watch the football game.
If you hate the thought of having a pool or hot tub outdoors because of the lack of privacy, you may want to consider enclosing it inside of a sun room. You still get the feeling of the outdoors, but you get a little bit of extra isolation. Plus, you will still be able to utilize it when it is storming outside or even snowing! You could go as far as customizing the sun room so that it has heated tiles, a steam room, a sauna, or more.
If you are interested in having a sun room built onto your home, these are just three of the possible ways it can be used. There are many others, such as a home office, exercise room, home theater, library kids’ playroom, guest bedroom, or anything that your imagination can conjure up.
