Bring the Outdoors In with a Sunroom Addition!

It looks like we’re almost out of the woods—with plenty of sunshine almost every day and the snow (hopefully!) long gone we can finally look forward to spring.

Make the most of the warm weather while it’s here with a sunroom or screened in porch. These additions allow you and your family to enjoy the outdoors while getting additional living space.

At R.V. Carey’s, we’ve been building sunrooms and screened in porches for nearly three decades in homes all over the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. We can custom-build the perfect sunroom for your home.

Benefits of Adding a Sunroom or Screened In Porch

A sunroom can add resale value to your home while enhancing your family’s lifestyle. The advantages of having a sunroom or screened in porch are many.

  • These windowed additions create an easy transition between indoors and out, making your home feel more open and airy.
  • Depending on how they are designed and outfitted, your sunroom or screened porch can be used for nearly any activity—dining, relaxing, entertaining, and more. They provide versatile space that can be modified as the seasons change.
  • A sunroom or screened porch can help you get more enjoyment out of your property. You’ll get more views, more living space, and more ways to add your own special touches of “home.”

Sunroom Styles

  • Cathedral sunrooms – This striking sunroom style adds drama with a high vaulted ceiling.
  • Curved eave sunrooms – Glass that wraps around from the ceiling to the walls is the hallmark of the curved eave sunroom style, allowing unobstructed views of the outdoors and nightly opportunities for stargazing.
  • Studio sunrooms – Studio sunrooms feature a single-slope roof style that is easy to adapt to nearly any home.

Customize Your Sunny Addition

We have found that most of our clients’ favorite part of the sunroom process (aside from enjoying the space when it’s complete!) is customizing the room with their own personal style, needs, and preferences in mind. Among the many elements you can add to your sunroom or screened porch are:

  • Ceiling fans and fireplaces – Keep your sunroom comfortable year-round (or almost year-round) by adding a ceiling fan to cool things down and/or a fireplace to warm things up. If you can’t or don’t want to add a chimney, gas fireplaces are an efficient and user-friendly solution.
  • French doors – Bright French doors leading from your home to the sunroom or porch and from the sunroom to your yard allow more sunlight and better views. And they come in a multitude of styles to fit any design or décor scheme.
  • Transoms – Adding these horizontal windows above a set of windows or doors adds visual interest and the illusion of height to a room—not to mention more light!
  • Bay windows – “Bump out” the space in your sunroom even more with a big bay window. Accent it with plants or a window seat.
  • Ceiling details – Your sunroom ceiling can be fitted with skylights or done in a number of decorative styles including bead board, exposed beams, and more.
