Is A Sunroom Worth the Investment? The Benefits of a Sunroom

Spring in KC is in full bloom! The weather has still been fluctuating, so a sunroom is the perfect way to soak up the sun (or any weather) from the comfort of your home. You can enjoy your backyard year-round without having to deal with the rain, snow, or humidity in a temperature controlled room! Here’s a rundown on the benefits of a sunroom from your local home contracting experts at York. 

Increasing your home’s value

Adding a sunroom provides an investment return of 49%, so it adds half of your sunroom cost to your home’s value! The addition not only adds square footage but can be listed as a desirable asset to prospective buyers. 

Multifunctional space

A sunroom offers extra space for a variety of uses! Our portfolio can provide some visual inspiration. It can be used as an extra living space for family meals, a playroom, a TV room,  or a guest room. Installing blinds or shades also creates a four-season room for any use. Sunrooms also serve as great home gyms; you can experience nature without having to endure the downsides. Another idea is to use the space as a greenhouse and install a glass ceiling for more overhead light. ???? 

Health benefits of a sunroom

Regular exposure to sunlight can boost your physical and mental health! The top benefits are a Vitamin D boost, lower blood pressure, better sleep, and better mood. Vitamin D maintains a healthy heart, bones, immune system and blood pressure. Plus, natural light aids your circadian rhythm for a better night’s sleep! 


Your mood can be impacted by the weather and your exposure to the sun—meaning that many experience mood drops during the winter months. Mayo Clinic describes the causes as being a disruption to your circadian rhythm (your body’s internal clock), and a drop in serotonin and melatonin. Light therapy is a common treatment for seasonal depression, sleep disorders & more. A sunroom allows for you to see and feel the sun every day, boosting your overall mood!
