In today's homes, porches and sunrooms offer indoor comfort with all the beauty and charm of nature and the outdoors. A porch or sunroom is a place where we can relax and enjoy all the pleasures of being outdoors without the nuisances of extreme temperatures, rain, or pests.
And no longer are porches and sunrooms purely seasonal spaces suitable for use only on pleasant, mild evenings in certain seasons. New technology in patio doors, skylights, windows, solarium systems, and heating and cooling systems means that today's sunroom or porch is a four-season space. They are just as energy efficient as any other room in the house, and for this reason it's common today for a porch or sunroom to serve as a home office, as a family room, as a regular dining area, or even as a bedroom.
IdeaWise Porches & Sunrooms will show readers how to plan a sunroom or four-season porch that best suits a family's needs, and also how to furnish and decorate that space for maximum enjoyment and usefulness. It also includes dozens of ideas for making this special space truly unique.
