(Pictured: Aspire 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.

A veranda might not be the first type of home extension you’ll consider purchasing if you want to make use of your outdoor living space during the winter months, but that shouldn’t be the case. All of our verandas, including our Outlook and Outlook+, can be enjoyed during winter.

 

The Outlook Veranda Structure:

Outlook verandas are made with a very robust polycarbonate roof that can withstand up to 50cm of snow and comes in three beautiful finishes. There are also three guttering options to choose from, all of which are sure to stop water from pooling on top of your veranda. Structurally, your Outlook Veranda will withstand anything that British weather throws at it.

 

Using your Outlook Veranda during the winter months:

Garden Furniture

Arranging all of your garden furniture so that it's underneath your Outlook Veranda will not only prevent it from getting damaged by the elements, but it will also allow you to make use of your outdoor living area for much longer, if not all year round.

Accessories

Sunspaces stock a range of accessories that will help you enjoy your Outlook Veranda through the winter months, including:

  • Lighting – which can be remotely controlled, and will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space long into the dark winter nights.
  • Heating ­– SunSpaces stock a range of different outdoor heaters, including a heater with integrated speakers that can be controlled via a remote control or an app on your phone! Perfect for hosting a party during the winter months.

By installing an Outlook Veranda, you lose none of your garden views and can really make the most of your outdoor space. They are one of the most simple and effective ways to enhance open air living whatever the weather.

With spring well and truly underway, now is the time most of us will turn our attention to the outdoors and those neglected back gardens, many which have been left to fend for themselves against the elements over the winter months. 

Why not consider installing a veranda into this dedicated space which allows you to get the maximum benefits thus prolonging your time spent outdoors with every passing year, come rain or shine?

 



Aspire Verandas Combine the Ultimate in Style with Practicality
Not only are verandas practical, letting you enjoy the outside for longer, but they are also some of the most contemporary and stylish additions that are robust enough to hold up to the ever-changing British weather while looking great in the process.

Whether you require a veranda which you can attach to the back of your home or even the side, you are guaranteed to find a style to suit you here at SunSpaces. In a selection of four colour choices and a choice of sizes, our verandas are constructed to industry standards and one of the most fabulous ways to enjoy the outdoor area every day of the year.

 


Our Aspire Verandas Can Be Tailored to Your Every Need
Perhaps you are looking for a veranda for your home but would prefer a more customized style. You may want to prevent nearby homes around you from being able to look directly into this additional space. If so, we can assure you of total privacy through our range of privacy screens or aluminium walls which can prevent people from seeing directly through your veranda. 

Alternatively, you may be keen to have a veranda installed in your garden but are still a little unsure of establishing a design which offers partially obstructed views through its numerous support posts. Once again, we can work to provide styles whereby there are fewer support posts in the actual design, therefore, allowing you an all-around better view as you look out into the wider garden area. 

 


Every Aspire Veranda Qualifies for This Amazing Offer
With thick laminated safety glass included as standard in all our verandas, as well as a choice of gutter options, you can also take advantage of a host of optional extras for the ultimate in verandas! 

From a section of lighting techniques, to extend your comfort well into the evenings, several choices of heaters to keep you warm as the temperature drops outside, multiple blinds to combat the sun when at its fullest to sound systems designed exclusively for each veranda type. There are so many ways you can make your Aspire Veranda your very own unique creation and a veranda unlike anyone else’s.

Once you have chosen your Aspire Veranda, you will automatically qualify for our 20% discount, ensuring a reduced price just in time to get acquainted with spring and beyond.

Perhaps you’ve toyed with the idea of adding a sunspace to your home. Perhaps, to get some ideas you’ve been looking online, at magazines or even at other people’s houses. You like what you see, but you have trouble deciding what would be best. Something in white, something in black, or grey? A sunspace with a solid roof or a glass roof? 

 



At SunSpaces we take the worry out of your plans. We have a team of design experts who are also CAD specialists, a nifty computer program that allows them to create lifelike 3D designs of sunspaces. You can call us at 029-2080-3756, send an email to info@sunspaces.co.uk or fill in the form on our website. What we need from you is your name, your email address, phone number, the dimensions of the projects and any comments you might have. With this information, our designers get to work. When they have something set up, one of them will contact you to finalize the design.

If this or that needs changing, this will be done in a jiffy. After all, this is your design and you need to be happy with it. If you are satisfied with what you see we supply the materials and you can build the sunspace yourself, or if you’re not the youngest or the handiest of people, we will build it for you.

 



The creators of a 3D design of a sunspace do more than just present you with a structure though. Creative as this team is, they can include furniture and greenery for the sunspace. That way you get a clear idea of what you can do to turn this space into an addition of your home. 

Just think about it, British weather is unpredictable and if you can enjoy your garden from May to September, you’re lucky. With a sunspace, you can enjoy it from March to October. 

 


Once you have a sunspace, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. It’s a place where you can send the kids when they get too noisy, where you can get together with friends without disturbing the rest of the house, or where you can sit and gaze at the moon and the stars with a loved one. Do you crave solitude? A sunspace can be a retreat for you to sit and relax, read a book, or work on your craft in peace and quiet. 

If you need inspiration, visit our gallery and see what’s available. There are cozy garden rooms, beautiful verandas, and luxurious glass extensions. You look, you decide, you let us know the dimensions, and we build your dream sunspace. First in 3D, then for real.
