sunroomIf you want to enjoy the outdoors more often, you might be thinking about adding a sunroom or a screen room to your home. If you still aren’t entirely sure which option to go with, it’s important to consider what you want to get out of this space.

A screen room is a deck or a patio with walls and a roof. The walls are typically made out of screens or a combination of wall and screen. Screen rooms technically exist outdoors, but with added coverage to protect you from bugs, sun, and rain. In a screen room, you will feel like you are outdoors, but you’ll have some protection from some of the less than ideal aspects of being outside.

A sunroom is an additional room built onto your house. What makes it a sunroom is the large and numerous windows that give you a great view of the outdoors. However, it is still inside the home, so you’ll get the benefits of air conditioning and heating.

Before you make a final decision, ask yourself whether you want to spend more evenings out on your porch or if you want to spend more time enjoying the sun without direct exposure to it?  A screen room might be the right choice for you if you want the benefits of being outside. Comparatively, a sunroom might be best for you if you care about getting more Vitamin D.
