In need of some additional living space? Before you jump right to purchasing a new home, consider expanding on your current home. In fact, you don’t even need to opt for a complete room addition. Many homeowners do just fine with a Gloucester Township sunroom instead.
Gloucester Township Sunroom Additions and Complete Home Additions
Will a Gloucester Township sunroom addition satisfy your need for additional space in your home? It just might! Ask yourself the following questions: What will the primary purpose of the room be? What are you looking to do with the additional space you are seeking? Do you need a full bedroom or some other type of space that requires full privacy? If so, you’re best going with a complete room addition. If, on the other hand, you want an extra space to relax, entertain, and spend time with family, a year-round sunroom is a wonderful option!
Here are some of the differences between Gloucester Township sunroom additions and complete home additions.
- How You Use the Space. Both types of additions will provide you with that much needed extra space in your home. The difference is how you use that space. Sunrooms are made of mostly windows. This allows you to enjoy nature without being fully outdoors. You can also easily access the outdoors, as many sunrooms have doors leading right to the outside. On the other hand, a room addition will provide you with more privacy, which is necessary for bedrooms, offices, bathrooms, etc. You can also add plumbing in a room addition if that’s something you may use your added space for.
- HVAC. While you might think that a Gloucester Township sunroom addition is useless in the winter months, sunrooms can actually be equipped with HVAC units. This allows for you to get the most out of your sunroom in the wintertime. But sunrooms do not require heating or cooling units like the rest of the house. To make your family more comfortable in the cooler months, you could also install double or triple paned windows, bring in space heaters, and lay down thick carpeting. A room addition, on the other hand, must be tied in with the current furnace or central air system.
- Location. Sunrooms are usually constructed on the back or the side of the main house. There are far fewer restrictions on the placement of a room addition. And if your property is on the smaller side, you can always build up!
