You have many options when it comes to remodeling or adding to your home. A new kitchen, a guest room, or a game room are just some of your options. However, a sunroom might be the best addition to your home. Here are just a few reasons to consider this addition.
Let in More Light
Sunrooms do just what it sounds like – allow plenty of natural light into the space. Natural light is important for our mental and physical health. It can lift your mood and exposure to natural sunlight is how the body produces vitamin D. By adding a sunroom, you can help boost your family’s health while providing them with a relaxing space.
Boost Your Home’s Value
Many home renovations don’t do much to boost its value. However, a sunroom can dramatically increase the resale value of your home. It does this in several ways:
- Square footage – A sunroom can increase your home’s square footage and larger homes are generally more valuable.
- Unique selling factor – Most homes don’t have sunrooms, so yours will stand out in the minds of buyers.
Create More Space
Adding a sunroom isn’t just about increasing the square footage to boost resale value. That extra space has many benefits for your family. What could you do with a few hundred extra square feet?

Sunrooms are designed to capture sunshine. That usually comes along with heat. During the winter, that extra heat can help you offset your energy bills.
Grow More Plants
Do you have a green thumb? Have you always wanted to grow houseplants but never had an ideal space? With a sunroom, you can grow almost anything you want. These spaces are ideal for sun-loving plants, and you can even grow some exotic species that thrive in warmer climates. And adding more plants to your home doesn’t just increase the amount of beauty around you. Live plants create oxygen and many studies have shown a direct correlation between plants and better mental and emotional health.
