Sunrooms, sometimes called three season rooms, provide benefits to the homeowner that other rooms simply cannot provide.  The ability to feel the outdoor air, even when the weather conditions aren’t quite ideal, are just one of the characteristics of a sunroom that can improve the life of the homeowner.  Designing a sunroom is a different exercise than other forms of interior design, as this post from Pool and Spa Outdoor explains.  In this post, Pool and Spa Outdoor explores the design process starting with needs, then moving to sizing, material choices, roofing, etc.

1. Choose a Sunroom for Your Needs

There are many ways to use your sunroom. How you plan to use the additional living space will help you determine the best type of sunroom for your needs.

Types of Sunrooms:

· Screen Room: Also known as a patio enclosure, a screen room is an extension of your existing patio, deck or balcony. A screen room is ideal in the summer months and in warmer climates as it allows you to enjoy the outdoor experience without having to worry about insects or other pests.

Three Season Sunroom: A three-season sunroom is constructed with both screens and single-pane glass windows and doors. This type of sunroom offers more protection from inclement weather and cooler temperatures than a screen room and is ideal for those who would like to use the room during the spring, summer, and fall months.
