If enjoy the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, or are looking for an outdoor retreat, a veranda is just you need. With a veranda, you will be able to go outside whenever you want to relax. It is a quiet place where you can listen to nature or enjoy a great view. Many people who live in different regions use their veranda for entertaining or as a way to escape the pressures of life without having to travel too far from home.
The most common uses for a veranda include:
• Additional storage
While a veranda is not considered an extra room in your home because it’s an open space, it does serve as an extra place to entertain, relax, and store outdoor items.
Because verandas are larger than other types of decks and because they have a roof to protect from rain, snow, and other elements, you can entertain outdoors for most of the year. Cooking, eating, and lounging can all be done on your veranda. Since there is enough space for a grill, picnic table and benches, and outdoor furniture, you can throw small and large gatherings without having to worry about overcrowding the space.
When not entertaining, you will be able to relax with a good book, listen to music, or work from home if you choose on your veranda. Comfortable lounge chairs create a comfortable place for you to put your feet up and forget about your responsibilities for awhile.
On the practical side, if you don’t have room for outdoor storage for lawn care equipment, toys, and other items that need to be protected from rain, sun, and snow, you can also create a small storage space on your veranda. You can purchase a small shed, or tarps that help protect outdoor items.
Adding a veranda to your home will increase its value because many people are looking for outdoor space where they can invite others for the day. Even though most verandas are only used for certain times during the year, you will appreciate having options when it comes to entertaining, relaxing, and storing extra items.
