Patios and Sunrooms: Which Addition Fits Your Backyard Best?

December 16, 2022 Patio Design

If you’re looking to add some outdoor living space to your home, patios and sunrooms both provide a great escape from everyday life. However, there are a few key differences between the two that should be considered before making a decision.

First, let’s talk about patios. A patio is typically a flat, open space that is attached to the back of your home. It’s often made of concrete or pavers and can be customized with furniture, plants, and other decorations to create a comfortable outdoor living space. However, in areas with harsher weather, you may need to invest in a covered patio to ensure you’re not exposed to the elements. 

In contrast, a sunroom is a fully enclosed space that is attached to the back of your home. It’s typically made of glass or other transparent materials, which allows plenty of natural light to come in and provides a great view of the outdoors. Sunrooms are a great option for homeowners who want to be able to enjoy the outdoors without being exposed to the elements. However, being enclosed does mean that sunrooms may get hotter in the summer compared to a patio, so make sure you’ve got plenty of fans and air conditioning to keep cool.

No matter which option you choose, a patio or sunroom can be a great addition to your home and provide a great space to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Both options will leave you with an outdoor living space unlike any other, and one you can truly make your own.

I have a lot of experience with construction and renovations, so some contractors find me annoying at best. My outdoor living project was larger than I was able to take on as it entailed adding an outdoor living area, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with a fireplace and fire pit. It’s built onto an existing structure with a tile roof in a seamless manner. The completed project is amazing, and was featured in the Houzz project of the month for December 2013. It was a very large project so it took a long time to complete, however the process was absolutely painless. In my previous experiences, I have always had issues with miscommunications and added costs, among other things. My experience with Texas Custom Patios included NONE of these issues. The finished project far exceeded my expectations. The workmanship was superior, and the quality of the products is top of the line. I truly highly recommend them.
