The New Year is already under way, as is the cold and wet winter weather. If you’re looking forward to warmer sunnier days, an excellent New Year’s resolution could be to make sure you’re better placed to enjoy those days this year. One of the hottest trends in lifestyle and home improvement right now is the coming together of indoor and outdoor spaces. Verandas and patios are placed to maximise direct sunlight, enhance garden views and merge with the indoor transition area by using complementary looks and styles in furnishing and flooring. Another part of the indoors/outdoors trend is the inclusion of ‘garden rooms’ that immerse you in the scenery.
VERANDA PURPOSE AND STYLE
If you and your family enjoy relaxing outdoors, enjoying the sunshine and summer breezes but you don’t have a formal space set aside for this purpose it may be time to invest in a veranda. Not only will a veranda provide protection from rain - it will most likely increase the value of your home as well. A veranda can be constructed to flow almost seamlessly from your kitchen/dining area to maximise the living space for entertainment and dining purposes.
