A unique approach to your outdoor space is surfacing and it’s not something we’re used to.

Verandas are a thing, it’s a fact. We’re more used to seeing them on our TV sets though because it’s not something we automatically associate with Britain – they are much more likely to pop up alongside the ranch style properties of outback Australia for example.

But not anymore! A new trend for these stylish and comfortable outdoor areas is promising to add a little international flair to our alfresco living. Interested?

If you’re still a bit unsure about what a veranda is, it’s a slightly raised area that connects to the side of your home and usually has a roof with open sides. They are basically an extension to your home and have some fantastic benefits. Here’s why you should consider one:

Everyone can have one

The good thing about verandas is they come in pretty much any shape you need and they fit to the side of your house, so if you own a home, there’s a very good possibility you can own a veranda too.

Extra living space

Who doesn’t need a little extra space? With a veranda, you have the opportunity of creating an extra living space, an alfresco dining room, or even a play room for the kids.

Sun shade

Playing outdoors in the sunshine gets a big tick from us over the summer but when those hot days get too much, a veranda offers the perfect respite for shaded sand or water play, or just a cosy spot of reading.

Be outside even when it’s raining

If you love the outdoors as much as us, you won’t let a little thing called rain get in the way of you enjoying the fresh air. But don’t get wet; spend that outdoors time under the protective layer of a veranda.

When you have summer entertaining to do, there’s nothing better than retiring after dinner to a comfortable and stylish outdoor space to enjoy the light nights of summer. Furnish your veranda with outdoor sofas and chairs, and brighten up the space with colourful cushions and accessories.

Style points

When it comes to your house looking good, verandas are certainly going to win you style points. Attractive in design and personalised to your taste, they become an extension of your home’s interior design. Whether you choose patio flooring or decking, structural pillars make pretty features, and the cover gives you a weather-proof area.

Value-added comfort

Aside from giving you an extra area of comfort, adding this kind of design to your home will undoubtedly add value to your property if you intend to sell up in the future.
