Sun porch, solarium, it what you must, but a sun room is one of the warmest, most welcoming part of a house. Running adjacent to the rest of the house, a sun room is not entirely outdoors, neither is it quite indoors; giving you flexibility to decorate it whichever way you like. Let’s take a look at these beautiful rooms and what you can do with them.
What is a Sun room?
The sun room is a room that is adjacent to the rest of the house. A door connects it to the rest of the house. Windows line the walls of the room letting sunlight flood in. Sometimes people choose to have glass roofs as well or even have skylights built into the ceiling. Sun rooms give you the feeling of being outdoors, with all the comforts of being indoors.
What is the function of a Sun room?
You can use a sun room to whichever way you like. As a guestroom or a playroom. An entertainment room or an indoor office. Your options are endless. Insulate your windows, install a tiny fireplace or get radiant floor heating and you have yourself a cozy little room to enjoy the winter outside while being nice and toasty on the inside. It can also make for a perfect distraction-free reading nook; a place where you can kick back with a nice novel, uninterrupted. If you have kids, you could turn your sun room into a play area for them. It could be a place for kids to play safely indoors while enjoying the natural rays of the sun. It can also be an extension of the living room. Put together a nice seating arrangement and a flat-screen TV and you’re good to go!
