1. Dining Area

One of the main concerns people have with a sun room is that it will be too cold in the Winter. Obviously a room isn’t a valuable addition to your home if you can only use it 3 months of the year! However, sun rooms can let you enjoy the white beauty of a cold winter’s day in the warmth of an enclosed space.

3. A Reading Area

Install comfortable couches or plush seats in your sunroom, and enjoy your favourite books in the natural light.

4. Entertainment Space

5. Gym / Exercise Area

Install your sun room to make space for exercise machines and an indoor exercise area.  Your exercise will be more enjoyable with plenty of natural sunlight!

Install an entertainment system, play area, games shelf, and tables. A sun room blends the best of the inside and outside, and is a great place to relax with your family. You can even install french doors to the outside, and supervise your children’s play from the comfort of your couch.
