When the cold winter months come, what can you do to keep warm and cozy?

A sunroom could be exactly what you need! It may surprise you, but sunrooms are a great way to beat the cold while adding beauty and style to your home. Imagine watching snowfall with a hot cup of cocoa in hand as natural light warms your space — that’s the magic of installing a sunroom.

Here are four ways a sunroom can add some much-needed comfort during wintertime.


Protection from the Elements

As winter rolls in, it’s natural to want to retreat inside and cozy up by the fire. But what if you also want to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, even during the coldest of months?

With large windows, a sunroom allows you to experience the great outdoors without exposing yourself to the frigid winter air. And, with sturdy walls and a solid roof, you won’t have to worry about being pelted by rain or snow – or blown away by gusts of wind.


Natural Light

Thanks to all that protection from the elements, sunrooms also allow you to get your daily does of sunlight during the winter months. And you can do it without feeling uncomfortably cold. Even when it’s a cloudy day, you can still soak up all the benefits of the sun’s rays. How? Clouds block visible light more effectively than they block out UV (ultraviolet radiation) from the sun.

In fact, certain clouds (like cirrus and cumulus) can actually enhance UV light, making it stronger. Which means it’s actually possible to get a sunburn on an overcast day!

All that is to say, you can stay warm and cozy in your sunroom and still enjoy many of the benefits of natural sunlight:

    • Vitamin D
    • Improved sleep
    • Better mood
    • Eye health
    • Sharper focus and productivity


Plant Life

One often-overlooked benefit of having a sunroom in winter is how it extends your plants’ growing season.

With proper insulation, a sunroom can maintain stable temperatures, essentially becoming a greenhouse that allows plants to thrive despite the freezing temperatures outside. This means that you can continue enjoying fresh herbs, veggies, and even flowers well into the winter months.

Not to mention, all that abundant natural light we talked about will give your plants the energy they need to grow.


Great Views

A sunroom offers a perfect blend of warmth and scenery. With a sunroom, you gain the perfect vantage point for admiring the frosty scenery, from the comfort of your heated indoor space. And with better views, there’s a better chance you’ll spend more time in your sunroom.

And, the more time you spend in your sunroom, the more you can enjoy natural sunlight and fresh air.
