So you’ve decided to build a custom sunroom addition onto your home, now you must decide on the size of the sunroom that will work best for you and your home.
In our previous article, we discussed – Can I Use A Sunroom All Year Round? In this article, we’re going to discuss – How much space do you need to build a sunroom?
The size of your home and how much space you have available will play a major role in the size and space needed for your new sunroom. The great advantage of building a sunroom is there’s not a one size fits all mentality. What works for one homeowner may be entirely inadequate for another homeowner. The most beneficial way to determine how much space you’ll need for your new sunroom is to determine how much space you’ll need for what you’re using your new sunroom for.
Deciding how you will use your sunroom will help you decide on the size of a sunroom.
Sunrooms can be designed in practically any size. Will you use your sunroom to entertain family and friends, exercise or a place where you can hold parties and/or for entertainment, then bigger is better. Perhaps you’ve dreamed about having your larger sunroom option which gives a more open-air feeling and can accommodate a larger group as well and allow more interior design options. Smaller scale sunrooms make the ideal amount of space for a sitting room, reading nook, home office, craft room, or kids playroom. Just like the larger spacious sunroom, the smaller scale sunroom will also have the ability for climate control to heat and cool your new space for year-round use. Keep in mind that a larger scale sunroom may require additional heating and cooling options for your sunroom where a smaller scale sunroom might be able to utilize your homes existing heating and cooling system for the most comfort in climate control.
The space you’re looking to build on for your sunroom might already be right in front of you. Your current balcony, screen porch, or screen room might just make the perfect spot for your next sunroom addition or patio enclosure.
The advantage of building a custom sunroom is that it is custom built to fit your home and personal needs. You can create a comfortable sitting area or something large enough to entertain family and friends. Some of the more popular sizes are 12’ x 20’, 12’ x 12’, 16’ x 20’, 10’ x 14’, 10’ x 12’, 10’ x 8’, 8’ x 12’, and 12’ x 15’.
