Sunrooms are a great way to bring the outdoors in! They’re also perfect for making your house feel more like a retreat from the world outside. They allow for all the natural light and fresh air you can handle without sacrificing space or comfort.
Sunrooms are a great addition to any home, and that’s why Gemcraft Homes has many floor plans that you can add a sunroom to. Make your home feel more spacious by providing an extra living area to relax and entertain. If you’re envisioning a future home with a sunroom, here are some design ideas to inspire you!
Let In The Light
I’m sure you’ve heard that sunrooms are a great way to enjoy your home in any season. But did you know they also make great additions if you’re looking to increase your home’s value?
Sunrooms with lots of windows not only provide natural light and ventilation, but they can also add significant space and additional square footage to your living area.
Make the space feel cheery, bright and open by including as many windows as possible. Lots of windows will prevent the dark gloominess that makes you feel boxed-in in the winter. And in the warmer months, windows will allow a cool breeze and a more expansive view.
Decorate With Indoor Plants
If you’re going to have lots of windows, you should take advantage of all that light. Incorporate house plants and flowers into the design. Greenery that blends the inside with the outside makes your space feel alive and inviting.
There’s also a number of reasons to decorate your sunroom with vegetation. Plants are a healthy addition to any home. They can be used as an air purifier and reduce the amount of dust inside. Caring for plants is also relaxing, which can help you relieve stress. We can’t think of a better reason to have a sunroom in the first place!
Entertain In Style
Sunrooms are great for lounging solo and reading a good book in the afternoon, but they’re also the ideal place for entertainment.
Make your sunroom an entertainers paradise by adding a pool table, installing a fireplace, hanging some artwork, or adding a TV and surround sound. Your family will get more use out of your sunroom this way, and it will be an unforgettable space for your guests!
Expand Your Space
Flex rooms and additional living areas are much more common now that we’re all spending extra time at home. Making the most of your space by expanding on it in new ways can help prevent feeling cooped up. Adding a sunroom gives you more square footage to explore, but you can take that one step further by building a deck outside that connects to the sunroom.
This extension of your sunroom will come in handy when you have a large gathering or want to enjoy life al fresco. Add an outdoor grill and patio furniture to your new deck and you’re ready for summer BBQs!
