Three Seasons Room
A three seasons room, sometimes known as a sunroom, is a great added space for those who enjoy the outside but need a space that’s not actually outdoors. These rooms are typically surrounded by windows, giving you the feeling of outside. They don’t have any heat or air conditioning built in, which is why you rely on the windows. These are perfect places for entertaining when the weather isn’t cooperating. Plus, they add some extra square footage to your home and can make it an investment you can reap benefits from.
Even if you’re not a regular drinker, having a bar provides your home with a place to entertain. The best part is you can make this area as big or as small as you’d like. You can create an entire room dedicated to the bar, complete with TVs, game tables, and more. Or you can opt for a smaller walk-up bar where people can grab a drink or two and unwind. Plus, bars give you the ability to complement your style, as you can make them with traditional cabinets and a nice countertop, or you can opt for a rustic feel with some shiplap and barn stools.
If you spend a lot of time outside and enjoy cooking, an outdoor kitchen is a great investment for your home. Again, you can make this kitchen as small or as extravagant as you’d like and complete it with the tools you need most, such as a grill, mini fridge, pizza oven, or whatever you desire. Complete the area with a nice pergola and seating area so you can enjoy your meals outside too.
For families with kids, or even for those who enjoy games, having a game room can be a great place to spend time with those you love. Have some nice seating for board games, and then fill the space with the games you enjoy, from foosball tables to cards to darts. There is no right or wrong way to create a game room, so just figure out what features you want to include and then go from there.
Adding rooms to your home to increase the value is always a good idea for homeowners, but when you’re adding rooms that you will use often, it makes that decision even better.
