Choosing to add a screened porch or sunroom is a decision that could be hard for many to make as they renovate their backyard spaces. Adding a screened porch or sunroom to your outdoor space can be a beneficial recreational space. They are equally exciting renovations, but which advantages and disadvantages are a better fit for you?
Screened porches take your porch to the next level keeping bugs and other critters away. They provide a roof to keep rain, snow, and direct sunlight off of you and your furniture while still enjoying the outdoor temperature and sounds of nature. Screened porches give the full functionality of other outdoor spaces such as decks and patios while allowing you to enjoy the space in more undetermined weather. Screened porches are great for chilling with friends and enjoying the ventilation of the fresh air on a beautiful weather day.
Sunrooms are more costly but add a greater value to your home. Sunrooms are versatile and can be renovated to accommodate year-round temperatures. The options are endless with floor to ceiling windows, sliding, or folding glass doors, glass roofs, skylights and more. Sunrooms give a little extra kick in allowing styles and décor of your choice for flooring, ceiling, and wall options. Besides being more cost-effective than traditional room additions, sunrooms offer more versatility and they’re easier to maintain.
Both styles add an abundance of natural light to your space and allow you to enjoy all that nature has to offer. They both provide a safe area for kids to play as an extension to your home. Both options can be used for other uses than just recreational enjoyment. Both options will increase home value and add aesthetics to your outdoor space.
