The word “sunroom” means different things to different people. To fans of historical fiction, it might conjure up images of a rich landowner’s conservatory, while those who prefer the present day may think of it as just a fancier way of saying “porch”. Here at Legendary Construction INC, we’ve seen and helped create a variety of sunrooms for just as many different purposes. Sunrooms are a great—and affordable—way to add some much-needed living space to your home, and in this article, we’ll go over some of the creative ways that you could use one in your home.
- Workout Room- Many people want to stick to a workout routine as a way to live a healthier lifestyle, but few manage to do so in the face of the many obstacles to that goal. A sunroom provides a great way to overcome some of the most common of these obstacles: that there’s no time to get to a gym, and that it’s too uncomfortable to go outside. By making your sunroom into a dedicated workout space, you’ll be able to exercise in the comfort of your own home, free from having to drive anywhere or put up with any bugs or bad weather.
- Indoor Garden- Just because conservatories show up a lot in historical novels doesn’t mean that they have no place in the modern day. If you have tried to start a garden only to have your plants wither away in the heat, a sunroom can help. You’ll have a room that gets plenty of sunlight for your plants to thrive while keeping out the worst of the heat that could damage them.
- Playroom- If you have kids, sunrooms make excellent places for them to play. You can move their toys into a space that’s just for them, reducing clutter in the rest of your house. Your kids can also use the sunroom to try out their messier games or craft projects without you having to worry about staining your nice furniture.
If you are interested in a sunroom for any of these or other functions, give our team at Legendary Construction INC a call to get started.
