Very few of us must be aware that verandahs are designed and constructed for a cause and one such cause is that it protects the home from the harmful effects caused by the weather. It specially protects the home from intense heat and cold. These days’ verandahs at Adelaide are considered to be an extension of the home or a place to relax where we can sit with our guests and entertain them in a relaxed manner. If you are having a lovely view outside your house, then you should have a verandah at least. You should enjoy the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects around you just to maintain better health. Verandahs have always been the best place to have great conversations with friends and family since our body and minds are relaxed enough to have these conversations.

Some designs ideas that may help you

Having a verandah in your home is something big that has to be planned well and if planned well it is going to transform your home with delightful looks. The next big decision is to choose a style for your verandah. So be prepared since you will have the extra work to be done if you wish to have an excellent piece of structure. Second thing to be considered is the space required for seating and the other space to be kept for some furniture. Read on further to design your own verandah:

  • Outdoor light - You can give your verandah a fascination look by using different forms of lights. Use spot or flood lights there to give it an enhanced look. So place them facing upwards towards the trees. And for the pathways you can use subdued lights which also give an amazing look. If you a plant lover, then try putting small shrubs and plants in any of the corners decorated with soft lights. Exhibit the lights in a straight line to further add attractions for the house design.
  • Proper roofing material - Use your imagination or research online for better design ideas when you sit to design your verandah. Make sure that the material which you purchase should be able to withstand any extreme weather conditions or temperature. You can also use roofing materials to make it look unique. Since this verandah is connected to your house, plan it where you can fix gutters so that the rainwater or any other type of water may not flow into your house. In case you are unable to do it then hire an experienced builder to get a better plan and a neat work done.
  • Use good flooring material - Have a good flooring material if you want your verangah to last long. When you visit the market you might get to know many options available in the market. But the research shows that most of the people select timber decking since it makes the place look inviting and can be designed well. Also it is one such flooring that blends with the nature very well using wood materials. You will be happy to know that such materials keep the bugs, termites and other insects away from the wood.
  • Use a theme - You can also have a theme designed for a verandah. Most of the people are opting for an Arabian night theme. In this theme you can use colorful and sheer curtains attached from the ceiling to any of the corners you wish to tie it to. Try making it look more extravagant by adding fabric and patterned cushions to the seating areas. Use throw rugs or wall art to have an everyday look. If you do not wish to go for this theme, use the summer party theme to get your verandah a better look.
  • Use colorful plants - As stated above if you are a plant lover, and then choose flowers and plants which have better fragrances to light up the room. This is a natural way of making your room smell better than the normal smells. Try to create nature around you and enjoy the experience. In case you find that your plant is not growing well in the shady area, then just bring it under the sun for some time. The joy of blooming flowers and plants is much more than the artificial ones.
