What Kind of Verandah Would You Like?

Verandah

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.

Why You Need a Kitchen Designer

Kitchen Designer

The traditional term for the kitchen is that it is the hearth of the home. In this day and age of rush, rush, hurry, hurry, never a truer word was spoken. It is certainly much more than just a space in which to cook and dine. Kitchens play such a vital part in daily living that if you are looking to make changes or are thinking about a complete makeover and an entirely new kitchen design, call an expert. To help you make the most of the space and add functionality you need to have some expert help. Unless you’re a true-blue DIY’er, you don’t want to be mucking about with plumbing and electrical to this degree.

Not Just the Looks – Once you hire a kitchen designer you can rest assured that your kitchen will go well beyond the looks. There is a fine balance between the aesthetics of this important room and how it functions when you need to use it for cooking and dining or socialising. It takes a professional to make sure that the working side of your kitchen and the appealing looks harmonise in the most effective way. Don’t be surprised if the designer interviews you about your cooking habits and those of other members of the household.
