Have you always dreamed of the day you could schedule your sunroom installation? Perhaps you have recently purchased a home with an open porch and you want to create a space that is more versatile and usable all year long. Do you live in the river valley where mosquitos are a problem? A sunroom is the perfect place to enjoy the afternoon without spraying yourself with noxious chemicals or swatting bugs the entire time! Here are a few more reasons you might consider adding a sunroom to your home this season.
If you have patio or porch you do not currently use very often, converting it into a nice sunroom can give you more options and it is easier than a brand new add on. Most areas require building permits for new structures, but simply converting or re-purposing an existing structure generally will not require new building permits. Early spring is a busy time for contractors, which means it is also a busy time for permit offices, and delays are practically guaranteed.
As any Tennessee contractor will tell you there are times of the year where being outside is simply torture. Extreme summer or winter temperatures can mean spending extra time within the confines of your home. However, if you have a climate-controlled sunroom you can enjoy the sunshine and amazing views without scorching or freezing! You can create a peaceful reading area or a place to entertain guests year round.
Do you struggle to raise plants because you can never find a place inside your home with adequate sunshine? Many people choose to use their sunrooms as an indoor garden of sorts. Plants will thrive in a temperature-controlled environment that provides just the right amount of sunlight. All you have to do is mist, enjoy your various household plants, and even potted trees.
Do the kids need a well-lit place to play? Repurpose that open porch into a lovely sunny place for the kids to hang out! This can be the perfect area for those play sets that are too large for the bedroom and clutter up the living room or den. Kids will love the area since it is bright and airy most of the time and you will be able to reclaim some space in your home. Pastel colors, playful curtains and geometrically designed area rugs are the perfect addition to your sunroom playroom.
One great thing about sunrooms, regardless of what you intend to use the space for, is the fact that they are so easy to build. If you are mechanically inclined and a bit of a do it yourselfer, there are plans and kits you can purchase. Of course, most of us work full time jobs and have other things on our plate, which is where a Tennessee contractor comes in quite handy.
