A sunroom is more than just an addition to the home. It’s a room where you can enjoy the sights, sounds, and feelings of being outside without the invasion of pests or rain. Most sunrooms will keep much of the heat away as well, especially if you install a ceiling fan and shades on the sides of the room to block out the sun in the summer. Consult with a sunrooms San Diego contractor who can offer a few ideas about what you could include and the overall design that would work well with the exterior of your home. You should also look at pictures online or in magazines to get ideas as well before letting anyone begin work on the addition.

An idea to consider is a ceiling with wood panels. Combined with white paint and white furniture with cushions in lighter colors, the sunroom offers an inviting feeling for those who enjoy the space.

If you want to embrace nature, then design the room with a tall ceiling and tall windows that look out over the largest expanse of the yard. A glass ceiling or a moonlight is an option as well so that you have the feeling of being outside while being protected from the weather and insects.
