If you want to have some fun on a rainy Sunday afternoon, play around with your sunroom design. Already have a sunroom? See if you can redesign the floor plan or the layout. If you don’t have a sunroom of your own, you can totally be creative and design the absolute sunroom of your dreams. Dreaming is great and there is something about putting pen and paper to your dreams that make them seem that much more accessible.
If you are playing around with a sunroom design, be sure to keep up with at as you go on with your life. You may see things in other sunrooms, that you would like to incorporate into your own someday or even changes that you can make now. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to how a sunroom should look, what sorts of materials should be used in your sunroom, or even what kind of flooring it should have.
There aren’t even rules about how you should use your sunroom. The important thing is that you keep the way you want to use your sunroom in mind when planning your sunroom design. You will not want a small utilitarian sunroom if you are planning on using this room as living space for your family. Not everyone has the same goals and plans for their sunrooms and that is perfectly acceptable, plan your sunroom according to how you wish to use it and don’t worry about what others think or feel. Trust me, they will give their opinions, but this is your sunroom design, draw it the way you want it and let everyone else worry about themselves.
If you already have a sunroom, design isn’t necessarily a challenge. You have a basic structure in which to work and what is left is planning for your use of the space. For those intending to make it a living area you need to consider the physical comfort of the room, will it be vulnerable to the outside temperatures or is their adequate cooling and heating for this room (keep in mind that glass is an energy killer and you might need extra heating and cooling in order to keep this room comfortable)? Is the furnishing you’ve selected for this room comfortable? And, will there be times of the day when this room will simply not be functional as a result of too much sunlight? These are important things to consider when making your sunroom design.
There are many other things to consider during the process of planning and design, but the most important thing is you and your family. Is this a space that you will truly use and enjoy or will it end up being wasted effort and a space that no one particular finds comfortable or livable? Will you be spending a great deal of time here or will it simply be an area where your kids can play without safety fears? Know the answer to these questions when making your sunroom design and you should have a room that is perfect for your family.
