A beautiful sunroom can elevate even the most modest home. These rooms let in tons of natural light. Whether you’re thinking of enclosing an existing porch or building off your front entryway, a sunroom brings a lot of light into the home.
Sunrooms come in a few different varieties, including three-season sunrooms, four-season sunrooms and solariums. Three-season sunrooms are not well-insulated and cannot be used in the coldest months of the year.
Four-season sunrooms are well-insulated and are functional rooms throughout the winter. They’re more expensive than three-season varieties, but you’ll get more use out of them.
A solarium is a type of sunroom made entirely of glass. Because of the thermal technology to keep the room insulated, solariums tend to be more expensive than a four-season room. However, they can double as greenhouses for flowers that require full sunlight.
