Did you know you can transform your deck into a sunroom? Having a deck where you can relax at the end of a long summer day enjoying your garden or maybe cooking on your grill is an excellent way to unwind. Unfortunately, in this area, you may find yourself swarmed with all sorts of biting insects, like mosquitos and flies. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use that space all year long and not have to worry about pests like biting bugs? It’s likely more manageable than you think, and we’ve got some great design ideas to get your creative mind working.
Many people don’t even know that there are different styles of sunroom. In some cases, they think that all sunrooms are solarium style. They’re not, though a solarium is a popular option. Solariums are glass rooms, with walls and ceilings allowing in light. They are beautiful but also have a greenhouse effect, so they can be too hot during the summer and freezing in the winter.
Moreover, three-season sunrooms are affordable and customizable but not suited to winter use. Four-season sunrooms opt for better energy efficiency to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter and enjoy all year long. In addition, you can transform your deck into a sunroom to get a more extended useable season out of it – the four-season style is probably the best option.
Furthermore, sunrooms are highly customizable. You should consider what kind of flooring you want to transform your deck into a sunroom. Lay down a subfloor, and you can have pretty much anything you want, from wood to carpet to tile. Ceilings are also a place to customize.
Plus, consider installing a ceiling fan to keep air moving, or if you fear you may miss the old deck life, consider a retractable roof. Finally, opt for windows that can open (but don’t forget the screens to keep the bugs out). You don’t want to miss that fresh air when the weather is gorgeous.
