Who doesn’t love a sunroom? Not only does it help you get more vitamin D and improve your mood, but it can also enhance your home significantly, increasing your appreciation of your home, as well as its curb appeal. However, it’s important to approach sunroom construction intentionally while keeping a few important things in mind.
Here are several things to consider before building your sunroom:
- Which Direction the Room Will Face- Before your sunroom construction begins, you should carefully decide which direction your sunroom will face. A sunroom that faces south will get a lot of natural light, but it could too bright or too warm depending on your purposes. If it faces north, you’ll get the least amount of natural light. And you may want to consider what time of day you expect to use your sunroom most. An east-facing sunroom is better for morning use, while a west-facing one means you can enjoy some beautiful sunsets.
- The Quality of the Windows- The windows will make or break your sunroom, so you should discuss them with your builder in depth. They’ll be able to tell you about how well the windows will insulate your sunroom so you can enjoy it year-round. Quality windows will also ensure that your investment lasts as long as possible.
- How Much the Project Will Cost- Just like any other home addition, a sunroom is going to cost at least a few thousand dollars. Getting a sense of how much you can expect to pay per square foot for materials and labor will help you set a reasonable budget. From there, you can make adjustments with the help of your builder to ensure you can afford your sunroom and you’re getting your money’s worth.
