There’s nothing quite like fall in Calgary. Just like spring, it’s an all too short shoulder season between the frigid winters and the baking summers, and just like spring, it brings its own set of joyful experiences. The temperatures reach a comfortable range during the day, and the evenings cool off, but just warm enough to warrant being outside a little. The leaves start to change colour, and there seems to be the scent of pumpkin and cinnamon on every street corner.
You can easily bring the feel of fall into your home with a wide range of small home improvement projects. For example, simply switching out the soft furnishings in your living room for those with more fall colours (oranges, reds and yellows) can change the whole vibe. You can also up your blanket game for those cooler evenings, making sure that there’s enough for everyone who comes to visit. However, to truly make the best of fall in Calgary, you need to think about adding a sunroom to get the absolute best from the season.
The Benefits Of An Fall Sunroom
If you’ve never seen a sunroom in the fall, you’re in for a treat. When you build this easy yet sophisticated home extension, you get many benefits, including the following:
- Free heating – the signature big glass windows in a sunroom allow all the light and heat of each fall day into your new space, while the double (or even triple!) glazing means that this heat is trapped in your sunroom. This natural insulation means that your sunroom will stay warm well into the evening hours without needing an external heat source, so you’ll be able to use your new space all season long.
- Views for days – one of the best things about fall in Calgary is watching the slow transition from the vibrant greens and colours of summer to the preparation for winter hibernation in your garden. The big windows in your sunroom will give you a front row seat to the action, and you’ll be well advised to position the couches and armchairs so that they face the windows to make sure everyone gets the best view in the house.
- Entertainment space – a lot of Calgary residents will spend the summer hosting parties and gatherings in their backyard, but the change in seasons means this is harder to do when the temperatures start to drop. A sunroom gives you the extra indoor space to host fall parties all season long, from Labour Day to Thanksgiving and beyond.
