How a Porch Sunroom Can Increase Home Value How a Porch Sunroom Can Increase Home Value

When building an addition onto your home, especially if it is something like a porch sunroom, you will want to make sure that you are also adding value to your home and not just visual appeal. Here are a few reasons why you should go ahead with the sun room construction.

Comfort and Relaxation

When choosing a home, people look for comfort and will pay more for it. A sun room is much like sitting outdoors, only in the comfort of your own home. You can drink your coffee and watch the sun come up in the morning or read a book late at night. You also have a spot to enjoy the view, which is especially valuable to outdoor lovers. Those who like to garden can grow plants in the sun room for an extra home appeal. You also can have outdoor furniture and a stylish nook without having it damaged by rain.


While a sun room can be great for a homeowner to spend their private time, it can also be great for entertaining. Many times when you have a party, you have guests inside or outside or even both. With a sun room, you can open the flow of the party, or if the weather is bad, you can still get the feel of the outdoors without the downsides of bad weather ruining the fun.

Architectural Value

Having a sun room boosts the value of the home in an architectural aspect as well. Many people appreciate the difference in building a room in the home versus a sun room. In a sun room, the materials, windows, walls, ceilings and decorations will be different than other rooms in your home and give off a contrast that is beautiful and draws you towards it.

More Square Footage

When it comes to real estate, typically more is better. If you are building a sun room, you will be adding more square footage to your home, making it much more valuable. Not only does a sun room increase the value of your home in terms of size, but it also makes the yard it faces look much better as well.

More Options

People want options, and with a sun room, they can get many. You have the choice to do so many things with a sun room that you can't do with other rooms in your home. When someone is buying a home and comes across a room that is a blank canvas, they will often jump at it. With a sun room, you have the outdoors accessible to you during all four seasons, which leaves you with so many things to do in the room. You can experience winter in the comfort of your home, throw parties, make it your private hideout, or even a library. There are so many different ideas for a sun room, and people like to know that they can put their own touch in, and they will pay more for these options.

Sun rooms really are becoming much more popular and can add to the quality of your life as well as the value of your home.
