Outdoor living structures extend the use of your garden and extend the period in which you can use it. If you have a garden that needs that extra wow-factor, an outdoor living structure would be perfect for you. Not only will an outdoor space entice you to go outside more, it will also give you that extra space to relax, unwind and appreciate the outdoor surroundings, whether rain or sun.


There are a range of outdoor living structures on the market and each type of structure has different values, so depending on your style, requirements and property type, there are specific structures we would recommend. Each of the structures we recommend can be externally styled to your choice, however, when it comes to internal décor, we think a table and chairs and maybe a relaxation area works best!

Awnings 

If you currently have a patio or garden area that you would like sheltering, Awnings are the perfect outdoor structure for you, suitable for rain or sun. These are great if you don’t have much space in the garden as they can be retracted when you don’t need them. Awnings are better suited to properties that get a lot of sun as they are good for protecting you from the summer heat-rays without adding that extra space that you may not desire or have. 

 

Compact Awnings 

Compact Awnings are suitable for canopying sun in the summer months! This structure would be best suited to someone who has a smaller-scaled patio/garden area they would like covered, and would be great for domestic customers.

 

Awning Outdoor Living Structure

Lite Awnings 

Lite Awnings, however, are a larger outdoor living structure, suited to large verandas or patios. This outdoor structure comes integrated with LED lights so you really do get that wow-factor about your property. We recommend Lite Awnings to those who love being outdoors, especially in the evenings when you can really admire the aesthetic of this outdoor living structure. With their LED lights, this style is great for get-togethers, small parties, evening meals or even, reading and relaxing after a busy day.

Elite Awnings

Who knew there could be so many Awning types?  Elite Awnings are the perfect outdoor living structure if covering a very large parameter, perhaps a hotel/B&B or even someone with a very large home (jealous!!). What’s great about these Awning’s is that they use innovative technology that allows them to be opened and closed with a simple remote!

Verandas

Verandas are a fantastic outdoor living structure if you are after that Awning style but a little more protection against the elements. Verandas can be fit to almost any space and allow you to admire your garden even when it’s raining; is there any better feeling that listening to the rain? Well, you can listen to the rain from the outdoors and stay dry… perfect!  

 

Glass Verandas 

SunSpaces have an array of Veranda types to suit your preference, home, and design. Aspire Verandas add sophistication to your property, without taking up lots of space. The Glass roof of Aspire Verandas mean you can be protected from even the nastiest of weather’s. Glass Verandas can also be detached, meaning you don’t have to have it directly next to your property. If you’d like a detached outdoor living space in another part of your garden, somewhere to relax other than in your home, then Glass Verandas are for you.

The Serenity outdoor structure is ideal for summer weathers – they look great at the edges of gardens or on patio areas and are a fantastic shelter for when it gets a little cooler in the evenings. We recommend this structure if you like spending a lot of time outdoors! The Serenity works perfect with some comfy chairs and a heater, giving you that ultimate summer garden experience.

This style would be a perfect extra for any home and with its lockable doors, you really can shut off to the world and relax. Haven rooms are very stylish and a seamless edition to any garden space – What’s not to love?

what is a veranda
 
A veranda is a structure built to the front, side or rear part of your house designed to provide you with shelter or used as a sun trap. 

Types of verandas

It is rare to find verandas that are identical. This is because they tend to be customized to suit the owners’ needs. However, there are 2 main types of verandas;
Traditional or Victorian veranda- made from wrought iron, these verandas tend to have a roof containing glass panels and columns with quarter arches at the top.
Contemporary veranda- ideal for the more modern property, these sleek verandas have a durable, sleek aluminium structure, with either glass or polycarbonate roof panels.


The purpose of a veranda

Verandas usually often serve a variety of purposes, depending on the reasons and places fitted. The main reasons, however, are to provide an outdoor shelter where you can enjoy your outdoor area regardless of the weather conditions prevailing. Secondly, verandas enhance the look of your home. We can help you decide upon the best design to suit your property to provide a SunSpace that accentuates the look of your home. 

The benefits of a veranda

You might be wondering why you should install a veranda to your home. Well, there are a variety of benefits to reap from the installation of a veranda.

• An additional room
An additional room is always a bonus for any family home. This added space can be used to put your feet up or even as a children's play area. This added space will serve as a great place to dine with the family and spend time with each other, just as your garden is in the summertime. You can also use the additional space for storage, where you can have peace of mind knowing your items are safe from the rain.
 
•  Entertainment
Hosting social events is often a great challenge. The addition of the veranda provides all essential outdoor space under cover for those inclement British days. Ideal as a shelter from those scorching days (we hope!) or as protection for those breezy days, the veranda space can be used for dining requirements, for lounging requirements, or a place for the kids to play. 
 
•  Aesthetics
Ever noticed the difference between homes with verandas and those without? A house with a veranda looks complete and pleasing to look at. A veranda adds charm and a feeling of completeness to a house. Though verandas come in different styles, the end result is the same… the aesthetics are enhanced!
 
Value
In terms of real estate, an exterior addition to a property most often makes the difference in prices. A veranda can boost the value of a house by up to £15,493.80. It not only improves the aesthetics of a house but it can also double up as an additional room.

Space
Living with family is a wonderful experience, you get to watch your kids play around and also as they grow older. But sometimes you need a getaway place to reflect and do your work. A veranda provides the getaway space that you need! The additional space is ideal for enjoying a quiet time without the pressures of other family members. A veranda can also serve as an additional storage space for items like bicycles and toys.

With the information on verandas, it is prudent to fit one in your home. You will not regret the choice.

Verandas are an extremely popular choice for the garden right now. Thousands of Britons spent their summers under stylish glass verandas, and they've continued to sell well into the autumn months, perhaps because they allow homeowners to spend time outdoors even when the weather is rotten.
