They both have their benefits and possible drawbacks, depending on what’s important for you.  If you want all-around views and the ability to stargaze at night, then you want a solarium. The cost may be higher, but it may be worth the price for your enjoyment.  A sunroom is more energy-efficient and more likely to be used year-round.
