Higher Real Estate Value
Whether you’re transforming a pre-existing three-season room or open patio or adding on a new extension altogether, a sunroom will bring you a big bang for your buck when it comes time to sell your home. Experts recommend getting an estimate on your home’s sale value, and asking the appraiser how much a sunroom would add to the selling price— but while the exact numbers may vary, real estate agents agree a sunroom is a perk most home buyers are willing to pay extra for.
Reduce Your Electric Bill
All those extra windows mean exponentially increasing the amount of light that comes into your home— which also means potential savings on your electric bill. With sun exposure on three sides, possibly spilling into the adjacent rooms as well, you’re less likely to reach for the switch to turn on the lights. Energy efficiency is good for the environment and good for your wallet, and a sunroom can help with both.
Natural Light for You & Your Plants
Letting in more natural light also can affect your mood and energy. Sunlight can help combat depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder, improve the quality of your sleep, and strengthen your immune system. If you’re one of the many people who became a houseplant enthusiast during the pandemic, you’ll know there’s nothing like exposure to natural light to make your plant friends thrive!
Extra Space for Entertaining & Relaxing
A sunroom can function as both an indoor and an outdoor space, which makes it perfect for hosting family and friends no matter what the season. From cocktail parties to kids’ birthdays, the sunroom is great for any gathering. It can be your at-home oasis, too— an armchair, a speaker playing quiet music, a good book, and you’ve got the makings of a perfect self-care afternoon.
We started out mentioning the visual “wow” of a sunroom, and we’ll end by touching on it again. There’s just something undeniably luxurious about a room made of windows— even if it’s not a large room, it makes a grand statement that’s impossible not to be affected by. Anything that makes the room feel bigger, and a view onto a garden or other natural scenery can feel like a little getaway every day.
