If you’re thinking about having a sunroom added to your Massachusetts home, you’ll want to keep these do’s and don’ts of sunroom design in mind:
DO: Think about your sunroom and your landscaping as part of a total package. When you’re in your sunroom, you’ll be looking out at your landscaping. When you’re in the yard, or passerbys are checking out your home, the sunroom will be seen as an element of your landscaping. It’s important that your sunroom and landscape design be harmonious.
DON’T: Forget to include your family’s lifestyle favorites into the design. The best sunroom designs enhance your family’s ability to enjoy themselves. There are a number of sunroom design configurations available. Choose the one that has the space and format that best suits your family’s lifestyle. This includes thinking about what the kids and pets will enjoy the most!
DO: Give into your love of outdoor living. Massachusetts is a truly beautiful state. Why wouldn’t you want to savor every possible moment of the view? Having a sunroom added to your home means you’ll be able to enjoy all of the beauty of the outdoors from the comfort of your home. Winter snows and springtime storms are much more attractive viewed from a warm, dry location.
DON’T: Overlook the sunroom’s potential as a spot for entertaining. Whether you’re hosting book club, having your best friends over to catch up, or need a place to entertain your children and all of their friends on a rainy afternoon, the sunroom can be the perfect setting. Some families enjoy dining in their sunroom, on either a formal or informal basis.
DO: Choose a contractor who has experience installing sunrooms in Massachusetts. These structures may appear to be simple, but they’re not. This is especially true if you’re having a sunroom installed on your deck: special care is required to create a satisfying experience for the homeowner.
