Cathedral sunrooms feature sloped, glass-paned roofs and are commonly installed as four-season sunrooms. These rooms are highly energy efficient and are a very popular addition that boosts curb appeal and property value.
Conservatory sunrooms provide a classic domed appearance that makes for an elegant addition to your home. Since the walls and ceiling are all glass, conservatories maximize sunlight and give the best connection to the outdoors.
Straight or curved eave sunrooms are modern, energy efficient rooms that fit seamlessly with the existing house. These are easily used as year-round living spaces as well. If you choose an opaque roof for this design, be sure to include several skylights.
How to design the perfect sunroom
Before you design your sunroom, it's a good idea to decide what you'll be using your sunroom for, and what will be the best value for your investment. When adding on to your home, consider these options:
- Seasonal use: Sunrooms can be open, three season, or four season. Open porches are obviously completely weather dependent. Three-season sunrooms include insulated glass but lack a heating or cooling system, meaning extreme temperatures will make the area uncomfortable. Finally, four-season sunrooms are insulated and include their heating and cooling systems, making them part of the house.
- Sunroom lighting: If you want to use your sunroom in the evening, strategically placed accent lighting and track lighting will make the room more enjoyable. Skylights are also an essential addition if you chose an opaque ceiling.
- Heating & cooling options: Four-season sunrooms naturally require heating and cooling options for the space. Electric floor heating can be a fantastic way to keep your floors comfortable, while fireplaces are also very popular in sunrooms. Ceiling fans and windows can be sufficient for cooling, though air conditioning can be added to keep your sunroom cool and relaxing.
- Finishing touches: Complete your sunroom design by bringing in wicker furniture, sweet-smelling flowering plants, and by using acrylic fabrics that resist fading in the sun. For fancier finishing touches, you may want to consider customizing your sunroom further with a fountain, a hot tub, or even a spa enclosure. Whether you're creating a home office, a play room for your children, or you just want a place to read and relax, don't forgo the little details that make the space your own.
Sunroom Energy Efficiency
At Homeowner Funding, we recommend that you install a double-paned (also called double-glazed) windows for your sunroom. Double-glazed, insulated sunroom windows will have twice the insular R-value (R-4), saving energy in your home.
Thermal breaks and insulation should also be integrated into your frame, and all glass should be Low-E coated to protect it from UV rays in the summer while also adding insulation value in the winter. To conserve energy in your home, you may also want to consider isolating your sunroom from the rest of the housing envelope. Having a sealed door into the sunroom as opposed to an open entry will help conserve energy and is essential in three-season sunrooms.
