Sunroom / July 27, 2018 / Onfroi Berger
Having a sunroom in your home will pay for itself not only in the amount of pleasure it brings to you and your family but because it will make your home more marketable in one of the tightest real estate markets in decades. Before You Build Your Sunroom Being able to afford the most expensive sunroom in the world will get you absolutely nowhere if your local building and zoning codes do not allow you to construct it. So pay a visit to your zoning board and find out not only whether you can actually add a sunroom to your home but also if there are any restrictions as to its dimensions and design. After youve been cleared for sunroom construction you will have to think about whether you are simply going to build your sunroom on an existing deck or porch or whether it will sit on its own foundation.
This task is fairly easy to accomplish. You can either look your local agency up in the phone book and give them a courtesy call or go down to the local office where they will be more than happy to assist you in explaining the local zoning laws and building codes that may or may not affect the construction of your new sunroom. They may even be able to help you find a local contractor that they have had do business for them in the past or even give you multiple contractors by printing you out a list of certified contractors that work in that local area that are very proficient in the zoning laws and building codes in your neighborhood.
Choose from the least expensive yet beautiful vinyl products. You can mix and match vinyl to create a unique yet very functional look. Wood is a favorite for sunrooms as is stone or brick. Interlocking deck tiles come in a wide variety of colors and styles can be positioned on top of almost any surface and look fantastic. There are also modular tile floor systems for the do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Carpet is another option along with outdoor area rugs. Decorating with Plants For sunroom décor consider using your wonderful space for plants. They tend to thrive in sunroom environments. Plants like abutilon allamanda and dianthus are all good plant varieties and will give you space color and fragrance.
