Generally, a sunroom is thought of simply as room full of large windows where you can hang out in the sunshine without leaving home. As accurate as that very general definition is, when it comes time to build one you’ll find you have more options than you might have thought. There are actually several types of sunrooms, as well as names for them—conservatory, solarium, patio room, and more. There are separate choices in sunroom materials as well. Here we will dissect the sunroom into its many variations.
Some types may be combined, such as a partial glass, four season sunrooms. We will examine the characteristics that define each type, as well as the pros and cons of each type. In this way we hope to help you find the sunroom type that best fits your home, climate, and lifestyle so that you can enjoy the great outdoors without leaving the comfort and accessibility of your own home.
