Seven Benefits of a Veranda
Whatever the season, it’s always great to enjoy the outdoors – even if it’s in your own backyard from the shelter of your veranda. A type of covered, open-air porch, verandas are an enduring and popular option on the modern market and are revered here in the UK for providing protection from any type of weather – regardless of the season.
Verandas are also typically accompanied by a railing and can be designed to wrap around your home. Depending on the style of veranda you choose, railings and posts can also be embellished with ornate designs – these traditional features are most often associated with older-style period homes, but can look equally tasteful and timeless when installed in a contemporary property. There are many advantages to think about when considering the installation of a veranda. Here are the top seven benefits of installing a veranda.
1. Perfect for entertaining
One of the main advantages of installing a veranda is having access to a multi-use space, which is ideal for hosting social occasions with your friends and family. Having a sheltered seated area means you’ll be able to enjoy your veranda all year round, regardless of the season, which is particularly relevant here in the UK where stormy weather can hit at any time.
As a result, a veranda gives you the opportunity to transform your outdoor area into a more sociable and functional space. On sunny days during the warmer months, you and your family will be able to take a break from the sun without compromising on airflow – and in the winter, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy your garden under the cover of your veranda roof.
2. Indoor-outdoor flow
Another benefit of having a veranda is indoor-outdoor flow. Paired with a sliding patio door or a modern bifold door, installing a veranda gives homeowners the innate ability to create a seamless transition between their internal living spaces and their outdoor areas. As a result, you’ll enjoy unobstructed, panoramic views of your garden, whatever the season.
3. Additional storage
As a homeowner, you can never have too much additional space for storage. A veranda can give you a little extra space to store muddy trainers and raincoats, outdoor furniture, houseplants you can’t find space for, gardening tools and even the family BBQ.
4. Kerb value
Another benefit of installing a veranda is the positive impact it can have on the value and kerb appeal of your home. Although you may not be considering selling your property, investing in an outdoor space now such as a veranda, patio area or even a conservatory can increase the value of your home by adding a functional, multi-use space. Verandas can also add a stylish aesthetic to the external appearance of your property, which can boost its desirability.
5. Better BBQs
Here in the UK, last-minute weather changes are incredibly common – even during the warmer months. That’s why throwing a summer BBQ for friends and family only to have it disrupted by rain, hail or a storm is considered a UK-wide experience.
By simply installing a veranda, you and your family will be able to enjoy a little extra peace of mind during BBQ season.
6. Closer to nature
Another benefit of having a veranda is the way in which it can bring a homeowner closer to nature. By creating that seamless transition b
etween your internal and external spaces, you’ll have easy access to the greenery and natural light of your garden. This can have a positive impact on both your mental wellbeing and the wellbeing of your family and is particularly ideal for homeowners who have limited outdoor exposure during hay fever season.
With unobstructed views of your garden from your veranda, you’ll also be able to comfortably enjoy activities such as birdwatching during the warmer months.
7. Stylish aesthetics
Modern verandas have an innately timeless and stylish look which can bring a contemporary aesthetic to your garden.
