Spending more time working remotely has changed up our thinking. It turns out that our home offices can be comfortable and customized – who knew?
If you’ve been enjoying the change, let’s talk about moving your work area out into a sunroom. If you’re craving views, natural light, and a workspace that lets you have more than one teeny plant on your desk, it’s perfect.
Sunrooms are a popular project with Chicagoland homeowners. They’re a great casual entertaining space, a light-filled retreat, and an all-purpose spot for a variety of activities. Now, more than ever, they’re also the perfect home office.
Worried about the trade-off between fantastic natural light and utility bills? Don’t. J&J uses only high-quality, energy-efficient windows in our projects. And, did you know that letting in the light has other benefits?
These windows are also great for reducing noise pollution, adding to that feeling of a calm retreat. If you’re seeking a workspace that helps you focus, you’ll find that your exterior noise can be muted 60%-75%. Let the lawnmowers run!
There are other benefits. The coatings used on these windows also reduces fading and sun damage as it helps keep your new sunroom comfortable year-round. Homeowners also find that energy-efficient windows are a great way to add value to your home, should you decide to sell later.
Ceiling fans are a must for sunrooms. We help to install the right size for your space – and make it easy to reverse the direction of the blades. As the seasons change, you’ll be able to shift warm or cold air away from the ceiling and back to where it’s needed.
Flooring is a big factor in your personal comfort. The most popular choices in sunrooms are hardwood floors, luxury vinyl woodplank flooring, or carpet. After all, one of the benefits of working from home is that you can kick off your shoes! To take the comfort up a notch, J&J can also install heated floors – even under carpet! Talk about job perks!
Our design team can help you think through all the important details. We’ll look at your heating and cooling needs, and help you determine if you’ll be able to use your existing home HVAC system – or want an option such as a separate Bluetooth-enabled unit.
Lighting and outlets can also be important, and we’ll help you consider exactly where you’ll be working, and what parts of your job will need designated outlets. All you need to do is show up and work in your light and airy home sunroom office!
We’ll also help you visualize the way the room should work with your furniture, workspace, and fine-tune the design to make sure windows are in the best locations. Our 3D presentation makes it easy to decide on every detail of your new office. We’ll even help you select just the right wall paint to make your work retreat feel airy, calm, and personalized to your unique style.
