One of the most common complaints that homeowners have is that they suffer from a real lack of space. Whether it’s a small home or they are just a large family trying to make do in a moderately sized home, a lack of space can contribute to the overall functionality, comfort level, and flow of the home. While you can certainly think about adding an addition, they are far from cheap, and you may not even be able to if the property is a listed building.
So, what’s the solution to a lack of space? An all-season sunroom can often be that perfect solution. It will provide you with extra space, will cost much less than a full addition, and it can add to your outdoor living lifestyle which so many homeowners absolutely love. Here we’ll take a look at a few useful tips to help you design a spectacular all-season sunroom.
Ensure It’s All-Season
First things first, the key here is that the sunroom is all-season. If you live in an area that gets cold or has damp winters, then all-season will be even more important. What this means is that the room is climate controlled so that it is comfortable all year-round, regardless of the outdoor temperatures.
Better to Have More than Enough Space
When it comes to the size of the sunroom, experts always recommend going with the biggest sized sunroom you are allowed and that your budget can handle. Chances are you’ll find a way to use all that space, so you won’t regret it.
Allow for Ample Light
As you work on the actual design of the room, be sure to include plenty of windows. The whole idea behind a sunroom is that it feels like the outdoors, so the natural light is needed. You can, of course, hang window coverings if you’d like, but try to fill as much as the wall space as possible with windows.
Determine How You Want to Use It
Now it’s time to think about how you want to use the space. The Home Design Group, which specializes in a variety of home design elements, provides all kinds of fabulous ways you can make use of this added space such as using the sunroom as a family room, extra dining space, a home office, a games room, an area you can work on your hobbies, or even a kids’ hangout space.
The way you choose to use the room will help to determine the next steps you take.
Choose a Colour Palette
Choosing the colour palette fairly early in the planning process is typically a good idea as this will help to lead you where furniture, decor, fixtures, flooring, and even wall color is concerned. The colour palette is meant to tie everything together and create flow not just in the room, but with the rest of your house.
