There are several different styles of sunrooms to choose from. Of course the design of the sunroom plays a role in this, but there are also other important factors. In fact, there are three main factors that will determine the type of sunroom you build. The factors include:
- The amount of glass you want in your sunroom.
- How many seasons you plan to use the room for.
- Whether or not you want to create new space or alter an existing space.
Three Season Sunrooms
Three seasoned sunrooms are typically unequipped with a fully insulated ceiling, insulated walls and insulated-glass windows. They may have one or two of these features, but not all three. For this reason, they cannot be comfortably used every season of the year. But they are still enclosed glass rooms that offer great enjoyment and comfort during the seasons in which the temperature is still pleasant.
Four Season Sunrooms
Four season sunrooms are equipped with a fully insulated ceiling, insulated walls, and insulated-glass windows. These features allow the home's heating and cooling system to extend itself into the sunroom to cerate a comfortable space on even the most blazing summer day or the most freezing winter night.
For homes in which the existing heating and cooling system can not manage to accommodate to the additional load of the sunroom, then additional heaters and coolers can be added. Such systems include a baseboard heater or window-unit air conditioner.
Additions to Existing Walls
Building an addition to existing walls is the best option for those that desire more living space. For some homeowners, the main reason they want a sunroom is to create more space and a new room to enjoy.
Converting Existing Rooms
For some homeowners, an existing space such as an unused patio or deck or perhaps an architectural alcove may make an ideal new sunspace. This type of sunroom is often an easier project and also less expensive because part of the structure is already in place.

A sunroom can be built with 4 types of wall structures depending on the budget. Sunroom wall structures can be made of Vinyl, aluminum, clad, and wood. Vinyl is a strong yet expensive material that needs additional steel reinforcement. Aluminum can provide good structural support despite of it being a poor insulator of heat.

These four types will help you understand their limitations and capabilities when used as wall structures.
