Verandas are quickly becoming the one thing that every British homeowner wants in their garden. In a recent survey, we asked 400 people what they would most like to add to their outdoor spaces, and of the 16 available options, 'Veranda / Sheltered Area' was the most popular answer. That's right: it seems that verandas are now even more highly sought-after than hot tubs!
Demand for verandas and garden rooms has been through the roof since the UK locked down in response to the first wave of COVID-19 cases last spring. The government's 'stay at home' rules left many people seeking a way to enjoy a feeling of escape without leaving the house, and adding a veranda is a great way to create an outdoor sanctuary that's a world away from the chaos of the kitchen table that's now also a home working space.

Well, that very much depends on what each of the four UK nations believes to be the best way out of their respective lockdowns.
In the last week, we have heard from all four national leaders on their individual plans to ease lockdown restrictions. Some provide clear dates of when certain restrictions will be eased, whereas others have been a little vaguer.

The SunSpaces installation team recently spent a few days in the East Midlands.

An afternoon on the patio is a great way to relax and unwind, but it's not such a pleasant proposition during spells of wet weather. It's hard to enjoy a glass of wine and a good book when you're getting rained on!
But there is an alternative to dashing indoors when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
