There are a lot of reasons why people renovate their homes. Often, it boosts resale value. Other times, things are outdated and need to be updated. One reason that is often overlooked, yet just as important as the others, is for the joy of making your home into a haven for you and your family. That’s why Premier Group Contractors feels you should consider adding a sunroom or deck to your home. Here’s why:
People often underestimate the importance of relaxation to our general health. There are a lot of negative effects of stress. Stress can cause aches and pains, colds, and even susceptibility in your immune system. Because stress is such a big deal, people should start taking their relaxation more seriously.
The addition of a sunroom or deck would allow you somewhere in your home where you can take refuge from the day’s stress. Kick back on the deck and enjoy the sunshine on your face while you enjoy a cold drink. Cozy up in the sunroom with some hot tea and a good book and let the stressful thoughts of the day slip away from you.
The cool thing about a sunroom renovation is that it’s really easy to do if you have an existing covered (or open) patio. Adding some walls and windows, putting down some flooring, and doing some cleanup of the old exterior is all you need. This renovation is cost effective and makes a patio – somewhere that’s often neglected – into a useful part of the home. Plus, a job like this is easy as pie for a team as varied and accomplished as the one at Premier Group. Therefore, give us a call if you decide this is a good choice for your home.
What you might not have considered is how fantastic a sunroom is as a makeshift greenhouse. If you have a soft spot for plants, a sunroom might be just what you need for your leafy friends.
A sunroom is usually filled with large, sprawling windows. They’re perfect for letting in all the light your plants love and need. Line windowsills and shelves with plants to your heart’s desire. You can even set up humidifiers or open windows as needed.
Additionally, an indoor greenhouse is that its only accessible to pets if you want. If you own cats who like to lounge in the sun and mean your plants no harm, let them enjoy the little bit of outside you’ve brought inside. However, if your little beasts are more prone to chomping down on your garden, keep the sunroom door closed.
The cool thing about choosing a deck, on the other hand, is that it’s great for social gatherings. Want to have a barbecue or hang out with family? A deck is a great place for that. Setting up some patio furniture on your deck can make the long, summer days a little more enjoyable. Watch your children play in the yard while you enjoy the sun from the deck. It doesn’t get better than this.
