The Benefits of a Sunroom

Sunrooms are one of the most popular additions to houses. A sunroom is made mainly of glass that allows you to enjoy the outdoors comfortably without the rain, humidity, insects and winds. This is wonderful because it means you can feel like you’re outside during all times of the year while being in control of the temperature of the room. This room typically leads you outside into the back yard and can be designed based on you and your family’s needs. You can add more privacy, sunlight and relaxation into your life by adding a sunroom.

Vitamin D

A living space can’t have more than 40% of glass on the walls according to the International Energy Conservation Code. But don’t worry because you will still be receiving optimal amounts of vitamin D through the sunshine coming in through the glass windows.

Vitamin D is beneficial for our health because it regulates the absorption of calcium and phosphorous while improving our immune system. Vitamin D fights disease and reduces your chance of developing heart disease later on in life. It helps fight depression, boosts weight loss, prevents autoimmune diseases, fights infections, repairs DNA and helps your metabolism. Even getting about 10 to 15 minutes of sun exposure a day will benefit your health.


Sunrooms can be a perfect room for a breakfast area and relaxing with your friends and family. It is the most pleasant room of the house and can be easily converted into a guest room or playroom. It’s functional, yet peaceful. Imagine watching the sunrise or sunset to start and end every day on a peaceful note. It will bring a sense of freedom into your life.


If you’re looking for privacy along with sunshine you can plant some trees around this room or add a fence around your property line. There are many options of bringing more privacy into your sunroom while maintaining the simplicity of sunlight. You can block some light with plants and allow small amounts in. It depends on the person and their individual needs.
