1) Think about direction!

A sunroom can be built at ground level or two stories, depending on the existing style of your home. A sunroom introduces natural light into the home, which is a great benefit. Consider where in your home you want more light and talk to our design consultants to make sure you benefit on basis of the direction of your house.


Do you want a sunroom that catches as much sun as possible throughout the day? If so, build your sunroom on a south-facing section of the house. If you like to watch the sun come up then an east facing position is best, while a west facing room allows you to enjoy the late afternoon sun and sunset.

2) Add a little 'YOU' in your sunroom!  

Extended spaces give you the opportunity to add more personality to the exterior of your house! Sunrooms offer the comfort of a living room with the refreshing elements of the outdoors. When talking to a design consultant, ask yourself what makes your sunroom unique!

The sunroom may act as a extension to your kitchen or maybe an extension of your family room. It could be an extended gardening or workout space! Or maybe a little bit of all? Your Lumon room can be made to compliment all your needs and wants!

3) Think about safety!

Depending on the primary use of the sunroom, you can decide what size glass panels and where to place them. If the sunroom will function as an indoor-outdoor living space, floor-to-ceiling glass panels will be the best solution.

Here's what Nick has to say about using his Lumon room as an open patio during summer and an entertainment room during winters!

On the other hand, if you want to use Lumon enclosures on the top floor of your house, you may want to go with half glass panels to keep your pets and children safe!

Regardless of what length you choose for glass panels, additional safety measures like child lock and pet safe ventilation are always available!
