Three Great Reasons to Add a Veranda to Your Home

If you are looking for a home improvement project that will make a huge difference to how you can use your space, add value to your property, and be a fairly straightforward installation, then a fantastic choice could well be to add a veranda.

In the context of home improvements and gardens, verandas (also sometimes spelled ‘verandah’) are permanent structures that can turn an outdoor space adjacent to your house, like a front patio, into a covered area. There are all different styles of veranda, including glass verandas, patio cover styles that also have blinds to shelter the sides, and large verandas with room for plenty of furniture, creating a full outdoor living space.

Here, we take a look at three good reasons why adding a veranda to your home right now could be the perfect home improvement project to invest in:

Make Your Home More Versatile During the Pandemic

One of the most immediate ways you will benefit from adding a glass veranda or other stylish veranda to your home right now is that it will allow you to make use of your outdoor spaces more during different weather conditions. This can be a really important change in how flexible the space in your home is during the pandemic, where many more people are spending a lot of their time at home. Having the extra space that your family can use even in winter to study, play and work will make your house feel bigger, and the feeling of being partially outside can be good for your mood if you’ve been feeling cooped up during lockdown.

Add Value and Resale Appeal

You can get verandas with heating and lighting as part of the package, and so you can have your veranda ready to use as a fully functional outdoor living space as soon as it is built.
