Sunroom in the Snow

Sunroom in the Snow

The best time to enjoy a sunroom can be the middle of winter.  While we always think of sitting in a sunroom looking out over a lush garden, the time when we need the sun the most is when those plants are well below the snow.  Like sitting on a porch in the summer while a warm rain falls out in the yard, sitting in a sunroom around a crackling fire while it storms outside can be a wonderful experience.

When planning a sunroom, make sure there is a nice view out the windows in all seasons. Well-insulated windows, floors, and ceilings can help make up for the large percentage of glass.  Radiant floor heat is a wonderful bonus on those chilly winter days.  Even if conventional heat keeps it warm inside, there is nothing like walking around in stocking feet on a toasty radiant floor.

With the use of large casement windows, a year-round sunroom can feel like a screened porch in the summer and a cozy bright escape in the winter.
