Roosevelt Rd. – How To Renovate Your Toronto Front Porch Entrance

This is How We Transformed This Front Porch Into A Cozy Sun Room

Six years ago, we renovated this clients’ whole house and they wanted to make the space more functional. The main important factor for this renovation was doing what we could to keep the cold out. In order to do so we insulated the attic area and walls with ridged foam as well as installed Nuheat heated flooring to trap warmth and block out the cold in the winter months.

The entryway of this space was significantly improved aesthetically as well, as it is the first thing you see when you enter the home. The interior brick was retained to create a flow with the exterior of the house, and was matched with luxury Vinyl tile flooring and pine boards for the ceiling. The space was fully upgraded with new windows, trim, sconce lights, and interior/exterior potlights.

Before & During Construction

Some Helpful Tips

  1. Either open up the ceiling and check if there is space for insulation in your sun room or make space in order to insulate it.
  2. Forgo standing coat hangers; wall hangers where there is no closet room allow for optimal space in your front entry-way.
