Sunrooms are very versatile home additions that can be formal or informal depending on your desires. They are also versatile in that they can be designed to match the existing lines of your home. Some houses have very steep pitched roofs, which would make certain sunrooms, like a gabled sunroom, the right choice. Other houses have low-sloped or flat roofs. In this case, to match the style of your home, we recommend getting a low sloping sunroom.
