Choose the Best Sunroom Type for You

Wisconsin home with large sunroom addition and outdoor patio.People have spent more time at home in the past few years than ever before. This inevitably has led to many homeowners realizing that their existing home layout may no longer work with changes in their lifestyle. If you’ve found yourself searching for ways to increase usable space and add curb appeal to your home, you’ve no doubt considered the benefits of a sunroom addition. These additions have been popular for decades and continue to be desirable options for those looking to expand their homes. However, it’s important to consider which type of sunroom is right for you. After all, the goal of a sunroom addition is to improve your enjoyment at home, and the wrong one could leave you regretting your choice.

Types of Sunrooms

Sunrooms, like homes, come in all shapes and sizes, so its important to select a style that will work well with your existing home while adding features you couldn’t enjoy before. Styles include:

Traditional Sunroom

Also known as three-season rooms, these sunrooms add sunlight and natural beauty to your living space while providing beautiful views of the outdoors. Sunrooms are perfect for those that love to enjoy the warmer months of the year, without exposing themselves to insects, allergens, rain, or harsh direct sunlight. Since most sunrooms are designed without their own air conditioning or heating, they can be built faster and at a lower expense. However, consider if you intend on using this space year-round, as the lower level of insulation can limit use during cold Wisconsin winters.

Four Season Rooms

If you know for certain that you want to enjoy your sunroom addition all year, regardless of the weather, then four season rooms are the way to go. Like standard sunrooms, they are perfect for increasing the square footage of your home and providing a flexible space for work, play, or relaxation. Their primary feature is their efficiency-first construction. Four season rooms are built with added insulation and thermally efficient windows to keep the space cozy in winter and cool in the summer.

Patio Covers

Do you already have ample outdoor space or a porch but aren’t sure what to do with it? Patio covers are an excellent option to increase the style and appeal of your home while providing more space. This addition is a one-story structure with a roof and columns to cover your outdoor recreational space. The open-air design allows you to maximize the outdoor experience while still providing cover from rain and sun. Patio covers are a great choice if you love entertaining guests or relaxing outdoors. Keep in mind that the open-air space will match the outdoor climate, so you may want to consider the addition of outdoor space heaters or fans.
