A New Sunroom? Start Now. You’ll Be Glad You Did

Sunrooms are perfect additions to homes that are starved for sunlight. These built-ons offer more window space than wall space and are designed to bring in as much light as possible into your home. In a relatively sunny climate like ours, a sunroom can be enjoyed year round and add significant value to your home.

Sunroom Bump-Out Addition
Bump-out, a common term if you’ve read Glickman blogs in the past, is a modest expansion of a room but is smaller than a full addition. A Sunroom combines the idea of a bump-out, but with the space and year-round usability of an addition. A good way to look at a sunroom is that of a hybrid addition that is heavily focused on sunlight and relaxation.

From the exterior, a sunroom-bump-out blends in well with the rest of the house. Siding, paint, roofing, and window styles all match. The only clues that this might be a sunroom are that it has an unusually large number of windows and that it extends farther into the property than the rest of the home.

There are many different ways to enjoy a sunroom and as many designs. We recommend starting the planning process this fall so your sunroom can be ready in the spring of 2022. Take a look at the variety of uses, interiors and exterior designs, windows and materials. Then call Glickman|Design Remodel Build.

Sunrooms: Many Types-Many Uses

Here are just a few of the many ways you can design a Sunroom for Your Home For Life.

Sunroom Conservatory
Plants and flowers are the focus of a sunroom conservatory. This type of sunroom approaches greenhouse status since all walls and even the roof are made of glass. Flooring, too, is usually hardscaped in porcelain or ceramic tile, natural stone, or concrete for easy cleanup after watering.

Back Porch Sunroom
True to the name, a back porch sunroom is located on and in the area of a former back porch. The main feature that distinguishes this type of sunroom from others is its location. Sometimes, this sunroom still retains most of the back porch’s building elements. Flooring, roof, ceiling, and walls are the same. The only difference is that the open or screened windows have been replaced with glass windows.
