Most homeowners love to entertain outdoors. If you are one such homeowner, then you might become saddened as the weather begins shifting away from the heat of summer into the colder months of winter. That is, unless you have a season room.
You deserve to have a home that you can enjoy during any form of weather during any season of the year, which is why our Lakeside Renovations and Design team is ready to install a well-designed season room for your home, giving you all the sunroom benefits. Season rooms, which are sometimes known as sunrooms, are great solutions for any homeowners who love the outdoors. They provide a space with tons of natural light and, done properly, can create an oasis for you to escape during any season of the year.
Types of Season Rooms
While season rooms can bring a plethora of benefits to your home, there are two different kinds of season rooms: three-season rooms and four-season rooms.
While the names of these rooms are somewhat self-explanatory, there are some major differences between a three- and four-season room. A three-season room, depending on seasonal transitions, will be usable for much of three seasons: spring, summer, and fall. A four-season room will be usable during all four seasons.
The biggest differences between these two season room options are:
- Heating/AC units
Three-season rooms are closed in and attached to the home the same way four-season rooms are. But they will not have the amenities to keep that room warm during the winter. On the other hand, four-season rooms have insulated walls and typically more insulated windows. They tend to also have a heating/AC unit to make them a perfect, climate-controlled space during any time of year.
The Many Benefits
The type of sunroom you may want in your home will depend on whether you desire that extra climate control and how much you would utilize the space in the winter. But no matter which option you might want, season rooms provide numerous benefits to a home.
1. Indoor/Outdoor Living All Year Long
One of the best benefits of a season room is the ability to experience indoor/outdoor living during any season of the year. You can be the pleasant entertainer all year long and on any day. Just note that three-season rooms will likely not have enough insulation to provide comfortable usability during winter.
With a sunroom, you don’t have to bother with watching the weather. From spring rains to heavy winter snowfalls, you can enjoy the outdoor living experience without the hassle of weather. You don’t have to worry about canceling a party due to mother nature. Instead, you have a well-controlled space for hosting and family living.
2. Pest Protection
Even if you don’t opt for a four-season room, sunrooms still keep pests at bay while you are entertaining outdoors. With tons of natural light and a flow into the beautiful outdoors, you can experience everything your yard has to offer without having to fight off pesky mosquitoes or flies. If you desire comfortable outdoor living, then a season room is the best way to achieve it.
3. Increased Home Value
Creating extra usable space in your home is always appealing to future buyers. So, whether you add a simple sunroom or a full four-season room to your home, you will see a value increase. Additional square footage is a sure-fire way to grow the value of your home.
It is important to note that not all season rooms’ square footage will equate to a dollar for dollar match to the rest of your home. Certain specifications have to be met for the room to be considered true extra square footage. A four-season room is likely to have a greater square footage value than a three-season room. However, any square footage will be an increase in the value of your home due to the increase in the value of lifestyle that accompanies it.
4. More Affordable than an Addition
If you desire extra space in your home for entertaining and want to increase home value, but a completely new home addition is not in the budget, then a sunroom is the perfect solution. While its square footage may or may not retain the same value as the rest of the home’s square footage, constructing a sunroom costs less than an addition. It also takes less time to install and can be easier to maintain.
5. Extreme Versatility
With tons of natural light and controlled temperatures, a season room can be used in a variety of ways. This versatility can provide your home with a function it is currently lacking.
Some great ideas for your sunroom include:
- Dining space
- Workout room
- Laundry room
- Craft room
- And more
