As the weather begins to cool and the leaves begin to turn, you may think it is time to cover the patio furniture for the winter and settle on indoor living for the next several months. While you may be an avid skier, when it comes to being at home, during winter you stay indoors. If your outdoor living space doesn’t function well during the cooler months, you may consider a Salt Lake sunroom addition. A sunroom addition feels like an outdoor living room with plenty of natural light, but with all of the comforts of an indoor space.
There are a great deal of benefits to building a sunroom in Salt Lake:
- Increased square footage of your home (more cost-effective than a traditional addition.)
- Floor to ceiling windows so you can enjoy the sweeping mountain and valley views or watch the children playing outside.
- The feeling of a porch, but with the comforts of heating and cooling.
- The flexibility of being warm and cozy in the winter, but opening the windows in the warmer months to enjoy the fresh air.
- Custom design features to add comfort and style, such as ceiling fans, skylights, fireplaces, hardwood flooring, transom windows, and more.
- Enjoy all the seasons in a sunroom. Perfect for fall color watching, the spring thaw, summer relaxation, and sunny winter comfort.
Sunrooms Go Hand-in-Hand with Composite Decks & Paver Patios
When building a sunroom addition, it doesn’t have to be your only outdoor living space. Sunrooms work very well with an adjacent deck or paver patio. In fact, it is becoming the trend to build multiple outdoor spaces to create a better functioning, inclusive, Salt Lake backyard retreat.
With a deck, patio, or both outside of your sunroom, you’ll enjoy the choice of a protected indoor, bright and airy space or the open air of a deck or patio. And best of all, you can easily transition from one to the other if your needs change throughout the day.
For a large family barbecue, after cooking out, the adults can retreat to the sunroom for quieter conversation while still watching the children in the yard. Or as the sun lowers itself in the evening sky, you can escape the evening chill to keep the party going without missing a beat.
With a deck or patio outside of your sunroom, the sunroom becomes the natural transition from your home to your outdoor spaces. A perfect place to retreat indoors from bad weather, but still enjoy that outdoor feeling.
