Solarium always has been a spot in your home that has mainly used to harness natural light into a particular area of your home. There are many ideas in designing solariums and having them build onto your house. The following ideas and designs will help you to be familiar with building a solarium.

Location to build your solariums

As a beginner, deciding where to build the solarium is quite a decision. There are a few considerations that are needed to consider for your solarium locations.

Build the solarium at the most accessible point of your home

The best spot to add a solarium is where there are most open spaces and lights coming in, such as living room and dining room. Choosing a good direction and a proper view to place your solarium
If you are a type of nature person then you need to take into account the landscaped and garden areas that you can build your solarium in a way that they all can be associated with each other. In that sense, you should orient your solarium to have a good view of the surrounding.

Face your solarium to the Southern direction

It seems that the idea of solarium is usually for the hot summer but now a day we purposely build it for the year-round of all seasons. You should create your solarium big enough so that you can set up your chairs, table and you can enjoy them all year round seasons. The reason for facing your solarium to the south so that you will fully expose to the sunlight in the cold season.

Choosing the proper materials for your solarium

Besides selecting the locations, another important key in the solarium building is choosing the best materials for the solarium. There is three popular type of materials in building solarium. They are wood, vinyl, and aluminum. One of the design ideas is to use aluminum but this is not a very popular material to use because it can conduct heat really well. Another type of material is the Vinyl which is quite popular in building solarium because of its durability, low maintenance and best material to do framing, plus it is very energy efficient. The last idea in solarium design is using wood because it gives the best looks so it costs more than the aluminum and vinyl type.
