What should be the design of the veranda?

Veranda is a great way to organize an extra room in the country or in a private house. Do not forget that this is a kind of "calling card" of the whole house: guests see the design of the veranda, then go inside the house. Before decorating the veranda, you must choose whether your extension will be open or you decide to completely close it and make a cozy place with a gorgeous view from the window. This choice imposes some restrictions when choosing the necessary furniture and decoration in general.

The main differences between two similar concepts: terrace and porch

The veranda can be either closed or open construction with any type of roof, while it should be part of the house. The terrace is located outside the main building, so you should initially plan the design of the terrace. When constructing a terrace, an elevated base is additionally created, often on a certain elevation from the ground. Must be fenced, otherwise it will be considered an open area outside the house.

The veranda with the house has a common foundation, which distinguishes it from all other types of additional structure. The advantage is that it can be built together with the house or built as an additional structure. Often, the verandas create a closed type, allowing you to design it even as a separate room, especially true in the summer.

To create a good view, choose a large space, while the windows can be from 2-3 sides. The porch should not be confused with the veranda, because it does not have a roof and walls or they do not border the main building. Want to create a complete room, as in a private house? Insulate and completely close the annex, arrange it in the necessary style and arrange functional furniture.

How are terraces and verandas shared?

Verandas can be closed and open. To save time, it is worth planning the structure before the construction of the main building. If the foundation is solid, the risk of cracks on the walls of the additional building will be significantly reduced. The extension must be documented along with the plan, as part of a private house or cottage. If you decide to create a veranda after the construction of the main building, be prepared to pay extra money to complete the entire package of documents. Exterior decoration should be as similar as possible or made in the same style with the whole house.

Choose garden furniture, it is created from durable materials, it perfectly tolerates the effects of external sources. Such furniture is not afraid of moisture, cold or strong sunlight. It is enough to buy one large table and comfortable chairs. You can put a large sofa to relax with the whole family.

If you create a relaxation room, it is not superfluous to put a coffee table. In the case of creating a full kitchen, buy cabinets, otherwise they will be useless. A rocking chair and slides with various plants look great to create a relaxing atmosphere.

The space around the main room

The veranda should be in the same style with the surrounding landscape. If there is a garden, it should organically continue the style of the extension. For example, you choose the English style for the design of the veranda, make sure that the garden was in the same style. It can be organically combined with other areas surrounding the house:

  • Create your own greenhouse or small conservatory right in the annex;

  • playground for children so that they can have fun while adults are busy with their own affairs;

  • you can build a bath and combine it with a veranda: you took a steam bath, then ate barbecue.

If you responsibly approach the design, a simple extension can turn into a full-fledged additional room or a functional resting place.
