It’s hard to believe we’re almost half way through the summer already. That’s how things are on the North Shore: time flies when we’re having fun. But wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy the fun outdoor living just a little longer? This week we’re going to take a look at one of the most popular ways to extend the summer season: having a 3 season porch – also known as a sunroom -added to your home.
What’s Awesome About Sunrooms?
Sunrooms are great because you add living space to your home without having to spend a ton of money. These quick and simple projects are basically enclosed porches. You can have your sunroom walled with windows, screens, or a combination of the two. There are really lovely shade and curtain options so your sunroom can be private as you’d like – but let’s be real, a big part of the sunroom’s appeal is the view.
What Are Sunrooms Used For?
You can use a sunroom any way you’d ordinarily use a porch. This includes hanging out and relaxing. Need a place to curl up with your video game? The sunroom is the perfect spot. Want a quiet cup of coffee in the morning? Relax in the sunroom and sip your java while watching the sun rise.
Some people use sunrooms for specific purposes. They’re very popular home offices, writing rooms, and art studios. The sunroom can be the idea spot for yoga or working out. Sunrooms are fantastic for plant enthusiasts – all of that natural light – and at least one family has found it’s where the busy kids most enjoy taking naps.
What’s The Process for Having a Sunroom Built?
For the North Shore, start on your sunroom project by talking to the best local sunroom builder. They’ll walk you through your options, and based on your budget and timeline, let you know what’s possible. You can have the extra space your family needs for summer fun. A sunroom is the answer!
