Here in Minnesota, the elements combined with the changing of seasons are a blessing – and a curse.

Freezing rain, snow and below-zero temperatures often keep us inside in the colder months. While during the warmer seasons, excessive heat, storms, and bugs are a deterrent to enjoying the great outdoors.

Adding a four-season room benefits you by comfortably sheltering you from Mother Nature’s bad moods, 365 days a year, with added style, space, and functionality. Contact Dupont Construction and Remodeling today to get started on this exciting addition to your home.

We have eight fantastic reasons why you should consider adding a four-season room to your home. You might end up being surprised you don’t already have one.

1. Braving the Elements

While the snow is snowing and the wind is blowing, imagine yourself comfortably situated in your four-season room. 

This new space will place you in a first-class seat to anything our Minnesota seasons throw your direction and offer you an up-close-and-personal way to view various wildlife, too.

When the humidity might be too high to enjoy, the mosquitos intolerable, or you hear a thunderstorm rolling in; you can still enjoy a natural breeze and the scent of the rain from the comfort of your new living area.

2. Keeping Bugs At Bay

Minnesota has its fair share of bugs and insects that affect our ability to stay outdoors for an extended amount of time. 

Biting flies, mosquitoes, clumsy June Bugs, and other flying annoyances will remain at bay with an addition of a four-season room to your home.

Or? Maybe it’s your partner, pets or kids that are bugging you. No problem. You can shut the door, grab a favorite book or movie, and enjoy some needed solitude.

And, unlike sitting out in your yard, an all-season room is enclosed and protected while offering you maximum sun and moonlight with a delightful view. 

3. Designing Your Sanctuary

Adding a sunroom gives you creative license to design the look and feel you desire. Maybe it’s a sport-themed room to watch your favorite teams, a nautical theme to accent the land of 10,000 lakes or a place to house extra plants in your home.

There are so many ways to be creative here. Some options are: 

  • Fireplace
  • Unique lighting design
  • Ceiling fans
  • Skylights 
  • Sliding glass doors
  • French-style doors
  • TV with Surround Sound
  • Furniture
  • Plants
  • Artwork
  • Energy Efficient Windows
  • Dining Area

Any of these ideas would be lovely additions to your existing home.

Everyone here at Dupont Construction and Remodeling looks forward to helping you create the perfect space for you. Call us today to get the ball rolling.

4. Adding Value To Your Home

A four-season room does more than offer a season-round space for you to enjoy. When selling your home, potential buyers will be delighted to see this as an added amenity to their new purchase.

Some consider a sunroom to be a “luxury item” and are willing to pay top price for one. So if the initial added expense is intimidating to you, keep in mind that you’ll reap what you sow when it comes to selling your home.

5. A New Way To Enjoy Inclement Weather

April showers may bring May flowers, but they also keep us indoors. When facing a day spent indoors, a sunroom allows you to comfortably enjoy a downpour of rain, a romantic thunderstorm, or gently falling snow, while staying warm and dry.

Too windy to go biking or boating? No problem. Grab that book you’ve meant to read or glance at a map of biking trails you haven’t tried, or another lake to explore. 

Then plan your next adventure from your new favorite room in the house. 

6. Sun Is A Mood Enhancer 

A sunroom captures natural light and warmth, making it a perfect place to start your spring seedlings, add extra greenery to your home, or enjoy the benefits of healthy plants and flowers all year long.

Plants create more than something pretty at which to look. They also help to clean the air and generate more oxygen in your home.

For us Minnesotans, natural light and fresh air are essential to our emotional and physical well-being, especially during the hum glum months.

Let Dupont Construction and Remodeling put their 20 years of construction experience to work to help you create the perfect sanctuary for you. 

7. So Much To See

Minnesota has so much wildlife all year long. And unlike sitting out in your yard, an all-season room is enclosed and protected while offering you maximum cherry sunlight and a delightful view.

Imagine yourself sipping your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine as you look out over your garden or enjoy the seasonal activity at your birdfeeder. In the spring, you’ll hear the tell-tale song of a cardinal or robin.

You’ll also have a front-row ticket to see the first spring flowers show themselves, notice the birds, butterflies, and bees return to the summer flowers and foliage, then enjoy the dazzling colors of fall as they fade into a blanket of white.

All of this natural stimulus is a great and natural way to lift our spirits.

8. Adding More Living Space

A four-season room offers a space that’s as flexible as you need it to be. It can serve as extra space to entertain, added dining space to host a brunch or dinner, or a cozy place to enjoy a flickering fire during cold weather.

Kids love the feeling of “indoor camping,” so it’s a perfect place to host a slumber party. Or, if you have teenagers, it’s a great place to host a scream-filled movie night during Halloween. 

And what could be better than watching your favorite holiday movie from your four-season room during a blizzard?
