Take a moment to imagine yourself lounging on a comfortable daybed surrounded by plants finally reading that book that has been sitting on your shelf for far too long. You are comfy and warm and enjoying the sunshine even though it is below freezing outside. For most of us, this fantasy would not be possible. However, with a sunroom addition to your house, this could not only be a possibility, it could be part of your daily routine!
There are ample reasons to add a sunroom to your house. The following are some of the biggest reasons to let IBEX Windows & Doors help you design and build the perfect sunroom for your Oklahoma City home.
Add Value To Your Home
Building a sunroom addition to your home is an excellent investment because it adds so much value to your home for a relatively low building cost. While it may be more exciting to think about building the perfect kitchen, adding extra bedrooms, or doubling the size of your master bedroom, there are many renovation costs that you can avoid by adding a sunroom while still getting the added benefit of your property value going up.
The US Department of Health and Human Services suggests that spending time in the sun everyday is extremely important to our health because when we are exposed to sunlight, our skin produces vitamin D — an extremely important requirement for our overall health and wellness. People who experience vitamin D deficiency may develop soft, thin, and brittle bones — a condition known as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.
As our lives become more and more focused on computer and tv screens and our ubiquitous devices, it can be hard to take the time to get outside everyday — especially when the weather is bad. Having a sunroom ensures that even when the temperature drops or the wind kicks up, you have a place where you can retreat to and still get the wonderful health benefits of spending time in the sun.
Turn Your Sunroom Into A Sort Of Greenhouse!
One of our favorite things to see is when people use their sunrooms to grow plants inside their house. Most sunrooms are not designed to be actual greenhouses — meaning they do not trap the sunlight the same way that greenhouses are designed to. However, having such ample access to sunlight makes it easy to grow many plants indoors that would be difficult to do so otherwise. Not only do plants have their own physical health benefits, but research suggests that having plants in your home may actually reduce psychological and physiological stress. This is a fantastic way to make the best of a sunroom in your home and really feel the benefits.
Turn Your Sunroom Into An Exercise Room
Way too many of us have an old treadmill or exercise bike that has been sitting in our bedroom, garage, or storage room for far too long. Adding a sunroom can be an excellent motivation to get out your old exercise equipment and really put it to use. Having a wall of windows to look out of makes every kind of exercise more exciting and enjoyable — making it that much easier to reach your New Year’s Resolution next year of getting fit and staying fit.
Turn Your Sunroom Into An Office
Whether you work from home, remotely, or just want a nice place to get work when you’re home, having a sunroom for an office is an incredibly refreshing way to get work done every day while staying calm and feeling rejuvenated. All you need is a nice chair, a sturdy table, and a decent wifi signal and you can start working in a brand new environment surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature within your own home.
Additional Space and Function
Even if you don’t have a specific designation for your sunroom, just having the added space for when you have company over can be an excellent way to make your home feel much bigger and more luxurious.
