8 Reasons to Choose a Veranda Over a Conservatory
If you are thinking you would love to extend your living spaces into your property’s exterior area, then you may be faced with a challenging decision between an open veranda and a traditional British conservatory. Suitable for both commercial and residential properties, a veranda can elevate your property by allowing more natural light and airflow.
There are many benefits to consider when installing a veranda on your property.
What is a veranda?
A veranda is a covered exterior space that is usually partly if not entirely open, which extends from a building to create an alluring roofed area. Iconic of Australian architecture, the veranda as we know it today has disputed origins, although examples can be found within residential and commercial builds worldwide across Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
A veranda can elevate your property by creating a seamless transition between your interior and exterior spaces. Suitable for all seasons, a veranda allows for better ventilation regardless of the weather or time of year. There are many other factors to consider when deciding between a veranda and a conservatory.
The true beauty of a veranda is having access to an unobstructed, uninterrupted vista all year round. The open nature of a veranda delivers panoramic views to your property any season, rain or shine, even during the stormy winter months.
In contrast to a veranda, a conservatory cannot be enjoyed during summertime when the enclosed well-insulated walls can create a stuffy and humid atmosphere.
As previously mentioned, a veranda can be enjoyed all year round. You can shelter from the elements while still enjoying a cool breeze, maybe even firing up the BBQ and old boombox in the middle of a rainy winter.
In the warmer summer months, a conservatory can prove hot and stuffy and is usually considered more suitable for chilly winters when sitting in the garden isn’t an option.
A veranda’s installation time is far quicker than a conservatory where foundations and further work are often needed.
