Will a Sunroom Add Value to My Home?
Wouldn’t it be great if every home-improvement project increased the value of your home? The only thing better than watching the big game in your garage-turned-man cave, after all, would be if you hardly had to pay for it when it came time to sell your home. Unfortunately, this is often the exception and not the rule — and that’s a big reason you have to pick and choose when it comes to home upgrades.
Luckily, there are a few safe bets, including sunrooms. A sunroom instantly adds square footage to your home, immediately boosting your home’s value in the process — all of this while giving you an amazing space for entertaining, dining and just relaxing.
How Does a Sunroom Increase Property Value?
A sunroom is enclosed on four sides and has a roof, which means it adds to the square footage of your home. A screened-in porch won’t, so if you’re considering between the two, this is a key benefit to going the sunroom route.
Beyond that, who doesn’t love a sunroom? They offer stunning natural light, are versatile and create an additional living space for your family. Potential buyers are always interested in these benefits and, in the meantime, you’ll love living in yours.
How Can I Use a Sunroom?
There are countless ways to use your new sunroom. For starters…
It’s a Breakfast Room
Sip your coffee and get in-check for the day in your stunning sunroom. A sunroom can serve as a breakfast nook, seating area, additional dining space or the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day. The best part? Do it all without the bugs, rain or harsh sun.
Create a Unique Home Office
If you’ve always wanted a home office or are tired of working upstairs and away from your family, consider using your sunroom as a home office. The natural light will enhance your workflow and help the hours fly by.
Use it as a Master Suite Expansion
A master suite is the perfect private enclave — enhance yours with a sunroom. Not only is this a unique twist on a traditional bedroom, but it’s a great way to create a truly relaxing retreat you’ll want to go back to again and again.
Build out your Recreational Area
The most popular use for a sunroom? As extra living space. Since sunrooms are enclosed and insulated, they can be wired for TVs and other electronics, making it a perfect spot for family movie night. Or, keep it sans-technology and use the space for homework or reading.
A bright, cheery Home Gym
Whether you’re into yoga, weightlifting or stationary machinery, a sunroom is a great place to set up shop. You’ll enjoy the benefit of natural lighting, plus you can double the space for your other hobbies.
Sunrooms, Screened-in Porches and more…
If you’re considering adding a sunroom, then chances are you’ve also considered other options, such as a screened-in porch, deck or three-season sunroom. All have their pros and cons, but nothing beats a sunroom if you’re looking to increase your property value and have temperature-controlled living space.
