If you need or want a little extra space for relaxation in your home, consider a sunroom addition. A sunroom is a fantastic place to go for some quiet time or to get away from whatever activity is occurring in the house. You can also enjoy nature through all of the gorgeous windows in the room, regardless of the weather or time of year.
Even if you tie your addition into your home’s air conditioning and heating unit, you’ll still want to install a ceiling fan in your sunroom so you can keep the area cooler in the summer. Also, consider getting an electric stove heater to keep it toasty warm in the winter. Both items are beautiful decor pieces as well and will make the area look comfortable and inviting.
The most popular flooring choices for sunrooms are hardwood or ceramic tile in a neutral color. Either will look gorgeous when paired with decorative area rugs. One or more area rugs will make your space feel cozy, and you can create different sections in your sunroom with them.
For one section, use a large rug and configure around it a sitting area with plush padding. Rattan furniture is always an excellent choice. Include cushions inspired by nature, such as patterns of leaves or flowers in greens, browns, reds, oranges, and yellows. You’ll also want footstools available for optimal comfort. Include some side tables where you can place a drink and a snack.
For another section, you can use an area rug in front of a rattan bar set with some seats in front. This spot makes a great, secondary gathering place when you have company. You can also keep snacks in the bar for your kids. It can become a fun space for your children to enjoy after school. They could even do their homework at the bar.
If you have room for another section, set up a space for your pets. They’ll love the open feeling and light in the sunroom. You can place their bed and carrier in one corner, along with several toys and even their food dishes.
A sunroom addition will give you the extra space that you need and increase your home’s value at the same time. It’s a smart investment for any family. If you’re ready to invest in a new home addition, contact WD Smith Construction. Our expert team of home remodelers is ready to start!
