A verandah is a roofed addition to the house that runs along one side or the back, or even along the front of the house. It usually extends to the whole width of the home and can give the inhabitants extra room and an outdoor living area to enjoy. However, there are many different styles of patios and verandahs, so before you go ahead you may want to consider which one would suit you – and your home – best. Here are some tips to help you.
- It is important to build a verandah that suits the architectural style of your home, whether that is a period home or a modern, contemporary one. It will need to be fully attached to the house.
- While some verandahs are quite narrow, if your property allows it, wider is better as it allows more room for relaxing and your toes won’t be run over by your toddler in their push along vehicle.
