If you've been thinking about selling your home, you should first come up with ways to increase its value. Get the job done right, and you'll have more money to invest in your next home. But how do you add value to your home? While there are many ways to do this, adding a sunroom to your home has proven to be quite effective. Therefore, adding one of these to your home makes a lot of sense. And if you need any help when it comes to designing your new sunroom, here are 5 tips that are guaranteed to do the trick.
Make it versatile
The best sunrooms out there can accommodate both comfy sofas and a dining table. Of course, in order for this to be the case, you need to make your sunroom as spacious as possible. That way, the new owner will get a chance to use it during all 4 seasons. This also makes them more likely to choose your home which is always a big plus. In order to make it more versatile, you need to make sure all the windows can be opened in order to let fresh air in. Moreover, you can think about installing an indoor fire pit, which will allow them to keep it warm and roast marshmallows campfire-style in cold months.
Get the windows right
With windows being the key part of every sunroom, choosing them carefully is recommended. It's a good idea to do a little bit of research on which window glass you should go for in order to make the room usable all-year long. For example, there are new eco-friendly windows that can eliminate the heat created by sunlight in summer. Also, since there's so much glass in the room, opting for tempered glass is also a smart move. If you decide to go for quality window glass, make sure you mention it to every potential buyer who comes to check your home out.
If you want potential buyers to really fall in love with your new sunroom, establishing zones in it is an absolute must. That way, the room will appear to be more spacious, which is exactly what you should be going for. You can start by creating one zone for dining and one for relaxation. If there's any extra free space left, throwing in a cabinet is recommended. That way, you'll add more storage to your home which is something potential buyers are going to love. If you seem to struggle to separate your sunroom into two zones, getting area rugs for each zone is guaranteed to help.
Make it a relaxing oasis
One thing that's for sure is that the next owner will want to be able to relax in their new sunroom. So, it's up to you to make it happen. One of the best ways to do this is to do your best to soundproof the entire room. That should help prevent the noise from both the street and the rest of the home from entering the sunroom. Installing an air conditioner can also do the trick. If you want to be able to relax the same way as in your new home, make sure you turn to professional project home builders who can include one of these into your home design.
Adding a Sunroom: Get shades
The whole purpose of having a sunroom is to let in as much natural light as possible. However, sometimes there's a little “too much” natural light and having a way to block it can come in handy. This is something every potential buyer will have in mind when checking out your home. Therefore, you should think about installing shades in your new sunroom. We recommend going for roman shades as these will prevent the sunlight from getting in without obstructing the view. Installing these shouldn't be too much of a trouble but you can also have experts do it for you.
With these 5 tips in mind, designing and adding a sunroom that'll add value to your home should be a real piece of cake. Make a couple of similar additions to your home and there should be nothing stopping you from selling it at a higher price.
