“Don’t get me wrong,” Annie said. “I love our screen porch. I mean, I really love it. That’s the problem. I am out there all of the time – I work from home a lot, and it’s a nice place to focus – but when it starts getting cold I have to give up that space and I don’t want to.”
Converting a Screen Porch to a Sunroom
One smart way to extend your outdoor living season is to convert your screen porch into a sunroom. Because sunrooms feature glass windows rather than screen, they offer better protection against the elements. At the same time, you’re still able to enjoy all of the natural beauty of the outdoors that you could see from your screen porch.
Sunrooms are very versatile spaces. In the years we’ve been serving the Metrowest MA area as a local deck contractor, we’ve had families who built sunrooms as family rooms, as spaces for entertaining, as breakfast nooks or dining rooms, as home offices, or just to have some additional space for the family to enjoy. Pets love sunrooms too!
Adding a Sunroom: More Curb Appeal!
As a homeowner, every time you renovate or improve your home, you have to consider if you’re making a smart investment. Sunrooms are one of the most rewarding improvements you can choose, both in terms of homeowner satisfaction and return on investment.
An attractive, well-built sun room adds to the functionality, beauty, and curb appeal of your home. If you’re converting a screen porch into a sunroom, you might be surprised at how much what seems like a simple change can really boost the home’s exterior. You also have a lot more interior design elements with a sun room, as you don’t have to worry about paint finishes, furniture, fabric and rugs being exposed to the elements in the same way.
