Summer’s drawing to a close, and with that, it’s time to pack away the outdoor furniture and resign yourself to months indoors, right? Wrong! Having a veranda installed allows you to enjoy the great outdoors all year round, and by choosing an experienced fitter like 123v, your veranda can become more than just a shelter – it can become a fully functioning part of your home, at a fraction of the cost of your extension. With a range of additional extras available, your veranda can become truly personalised and tailored to whatever you plan to use it for. There are many variables you can mix and match to get the perfect veranda for you:
Structure Choose from a regular veranda, which is held up by two beams at each end, or a cantilever veranda which is anchored only against your property. You may also wish to include drop-down walls and enclosed glass doors at one or both ends for a conservatory effect which protects you from adverse weather conditions.
Decoration A quality veranda isn’t simply a uniform, one-size-fits-all, flatpack addition to your home. Quality suppliers offer their verandas in a range of colours, with customers able to mix and match different beam ends, beam infill styles, trims and more.
Glass You could be forgiven for thinking that the only variation you could get in your veranda’s glass is its thickness. Actually, there are dozens of different kinds of glass you can choose for your veranda, from solar energy-converting glass to UV-protection glass to noise-cancelling glass and so much more. Contact your veranda supplier for information on which types of specialised glass they offer.
Extras There are a number of optional extras that can be added to your veranda. Add heaters and lighting and you’ll be able to enjoy a few drinks outdoors on chilly winter evenings, and have an iPod docking station and speakers installed to enjoy some smooth jazz or easy listening whilst enjoying a bite to eat under your veranda.
With such a wealth of options to choose from, no two verandas are ever the same and yours can be truly unique to you. So whether you’re looking for somewhere to seat guests outdoors, to protect outdoor furniture or to simply sit, listen to some music and enjoy a glass of wine, opt for a quality glass veranda supplier like 123v who’ll work closely with you to create your ideal glass veranda.
