102,109 Verandah Design Photos

A verandah is more than just an entryway to your home. A roofed and open, or partly open, portion of a house, it offers a sheltered outdoor space you can enjoy all year round. Here you can converse with neighbours, dine with friends, and even while away the day in a hammock or swing chair. A well-planned verandah will complement the architectural design and style of your home, and provide a smooth transition from the outside to the inside. Read on for more ways to best execute your verandah design.

What style of verandah should I add to my home?


This will be primarily dictated by your budget, space and overall style of your home. If your garden and house exterior are classically styled, then a timber or wrought iron verandah may be the way to go, while glass and metal verandahs better suit contemporary tastes. Flat or skillion-roofed verandahs are popular home additions because they can be shaped to fit most house plans, or extend out to other zones, like a pool, for example. A pitched/gabled or curved roof will give you more height and a more open feel, while a concave roof looks best on a verandah attached to a period home. You can choose to have either a supported veranda with posts, similar to a pergola structure, or a cantilever veranda that protrudes from a wall of your house without support via posts to the ground.

How do I decorate my verandah?


Your verandah decor should reflect your personality and lifestyle, but most importantly, how you will use the space. If you want it to encourage lounging and people watching, add a hammock, swing chair or daybed – the more seating you have, the more likely you are to use it with friends. Get more from your verandah by including a dining table and chairs, with some feature pendant lighting to draw attention to the zone. You could also go beyond seating, by adding the likes of a console or planters. If you’re spoilt with a view, you can also keep it utterly simple with just two comfy armchairs to sink back into. Add colour through wall hangings, potted plants, pillows and rugs, but remember to opt for fabrics that are waterproof and fade-resistant.

I like the lighting , the blinds and the overall vintage classical nature look. - xuelihsl

Tuscan Columns & Brick Porch
A pair of matching rockers, Adirondack chairs or a cozy glider is a must when you have a front porch that is visible from the street. 4. Swap out porch lighting. Try replacing tiny sconces with a big, statement-making pendant light, add recessed lighting beneath the eaves or install solar lights along the front walk. - skylightssolar20

Rustic outdoor living table and chairs on a covered, wraparound porch.

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open floor plan, anchored by fireplaces to cozy up to. The public side of the house presents a subdued presence with a courtyard enclosed by three wings of the house. Photo Credit: David Lamb
