There comes a point when you’ve lived in your home long enough that you’ve done all the decorating projects that you thought about when you bought the property, but you still yearn for something new and different. A full home extension costs too much money, and there’s only so much work you can do in your garden before getting to the same point of ennui. This is when you want to start thinking about a sunroom.
Benefits Of A Sunroom In Calgary
At its most simplistic, a sunroom is a boxlike room that sits directly out the back or side of your home. It’s a full room, with solid walls and usually an A frame or studio roof to keep the Calgary snow off in the winter. The main feature is that each wall comes with large windows, and normally one wall has patio style doors to lead directly out into your garden. A sunroom brings you all sorts of benefits for a reasonable price per square metre of space:
- A quiet space – many people set up their Calgary sunroom as a child-free zone, making it one of the only rooms in the house where there’s peace and quiet, and no mess. Even if you do allow your kids into your new space, you can set up rules to keep it as a quiet and relaxing corner of the house.
- Free heating – the big glass windows let in plenty of sunlight and heat during the day, and resting this warmth throughout the evening. If you keep the doors that connect your sunroom to the rest of your house open, you’ll find the heat from your new space can keep the rest of your house warm during the spring and fall months, drastically reducing your energy bills.
- Stunning views – your sunroom will give you unparalleled views over the beautiful scenery in your garden. Calgary is fortunate enough to get seasons that change drastically, so your sunroom will give you the front row seat to the fresh winter snowfalls, the first signs of spring, your garden in full bloom, and the colourful autumn foliage.
