Portland Sunroom: A Valuable Addition To Your Home

at | Category: Remodeling Services

With a struggling real estate market, many homeowners are choosing to renovate or add rooms their existing homes, rather than relocate. Portland renovations and room additions can update your home as well as increase your useable living space.

When planning a renovation to your home, consider adding a custom designed sunroom. Sunrooms are a cost-efficient way to add living space, beauty, and value to your house.

A sunroom is an enclosed room, typically designed with large windows to provide a panoramic view of the outside. Many sunrooms include skylights or glass ceilings to allow natural light to permeate the room. These rooms are popular throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland and Europe.

Listed below are some reasons that you may want to consider adding a sunroom to your home:

Increased Home Value:

Sunrooms are considered one of the best investments you can make in your home. A custom designed sunroom addition tends to return 95% of construction value back at selling time. Buyers value the beauty and space that a well-built sunroom adds to any home.


The cost to add a sunroom to your existing home is generally cheaper than a standard room addition. With a variety of building materials and designs available, homeowners can spend a little or a lot on their new addition.

Curb Appeal:

A sunroom addition can enhance the curb appeal of your house, making it stand out from neighboring homes. Designers are able to build sunrooms to match the style and structure of any home. Your sunroom will blend in with the rest of the house, making it look like an original part of your floor plan.

Expand Living Space:

Many people would like to have more living space in their home but are not willing to go through the expense and hassle of moving. A custom designed sunroom adds valuable square footage to your existing home, giving you and your family more space to live.


Your new sunroom can be designed to meet any need-extra living space, playroom, home office, dining room, exercise space-to name a few. Because of all of the windows and natural light, a sunroom is a great place to read, entertain, play games, and relax.

Outdoor Living Indoors:

We all love to be outside in nature but wind, rain, extreme temperatures, and insects can make our outdoor experience less enjoyable. A custom designed sunroom allows you to enjoy the benefits of outside while remaining comfortably inside. A sunroom can be used every season of the year. It is a great place to watch the birds, grow plants, enjoy the sun without a burn, and watch the snowfall in the winter without feeling cold.

Now that you are convinced a sunroom will enhance your home, do your research before hiring a renovation company. Make sure you find trained and knowledgeable designers and builders who are willing to work within your budget to create a beautiful and functional sunroom for your house.
