We’ll build a stylish Verandah to enhance your home & life.

Bask in the sun on your verandah as the morning or late afternoon light shines on your home.

By adding this beautiful extension to your property’s facade, homeowners are able to breathe fresh life into a house without doing a full renovation.

Available in traditional and contemporary designs, verandahs can be easily customised to suit an existing house.

Few house additions possess the enduring appeal and practicality of a verandah. Both functional and aesthetic, a verandah not only elevates the architectural beauty of a home but also adds significant value to the property.

From enhancing curb appeal to providing additional outdoor living space, here’s how a verandah can transform your home and enrich your lifestyle.

Traditional designs

With a large portfolio of traditional verandahs on offer at Outside Concepts, homeowners can add a touch of old-world glamour or country charm to an existing house. Ornate metal railings hark back to a time of Victorian grandeur, whilst simpler timber designs gives the verandah a classic, Federation era façade.

Alternatively, opt for a timeless country cottage façade with simple timber balustrades and plenty of shade. A verandah built and designed to specifically suit an existing house can make residents feel like they are living in a classic Victorian home or country cottage, wherever you choose to live.

A well-designed verandah really can make a house feel like home.

Enhancing your home and lifestyle

A verandah, with its transitional space bridging the indoors and the outdoors, offers a multitude of benefits that can significantly enhance both your home and lifestyle. Here are several ways it does so:

Connection with Nature

  • Outdoor Access: A verandah offers easy access to the outdoors, encouraging a connection with nature and promoting well-being.
  • Garden Integration: It can serve as a seamless transition to the garden or backyard, integrating indoor and outdoor spaces.

Comfort & Protection

  • Shelter and Shade: Offering protection from the elements, a verandah enables you to enjoy the outdoors regardless of the weather, providing shade during hot days and shelter from rain.
  • Enhanced Privacy: Depending on its design, a verandah can also offer added privacy from neighbors and passersby.

Health & Wellbeing

  • Ourdoor Space: By being an outdoor space, a verandah allows more natural light into your home, which can improve mood, enhance productivity, and even provide health benefits such as vitamin D exposure.
  • Fresh Air and Ventilation: It encourages better ventilation throughout the home, allowing fresh air to circulate and reducing the need for artificial cooling systems.

Curb Appeal & Architectural Elegance

A well-designed verandah instantly enhances the visual appeal of any home. With its graceful lines and inviting charm, a verandah adds a touch of timeless elegance that elevates the overall aesthetic of the property.

Whether your home boasts traditional or contemporary architecture, a verandah seamlessly integrates with the existing design, enhancing its beauty and character.

Extended Living Space

One of the most significant advantages of a verandah is its ability to extend your living space outdoors.

Whether you’re enjoying a morning cup of coffee, hosting a barbecue with friends, or simply unwinding with a good book, a verandah provides the perfect setting to relax and connect with nature.

With the addition of comfortable seating, outdoor furniture, and decorative elements, you can create a cozy and inviting outdoor retreat that complements your lifestyle.

Shelter & Protection

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, a verandah offers practical benefits by providing shelter and protection from the elements.

Whether it’s scorching sunlight, heavy rain, or mild winds, a verandah creates a comfortable outdoor environment where you can enjoy the beauty of nature without being exposed to harsh weather conditions.

This sheltered space also serves as a versatile outdoor area that can be enjoyed year-round, regardless of the weather.

Increased Property Value

Beyond its aesthetic and functional benefits, a verandah is a valuable investment that can significantly increase the resale value of your home.

Potential buyers are often drawn to properties that offer outdoor living spaces, as they provide an opportunity for relaxation, entertainment, and enjoyment of the surrounding landscape.

A well-designed verandah enhances the overall desirability of your home, making it more attractive to prospective buyers and potentially increasing its market value.

Incorporate elements that reflect your personal style and create a cohesive look with the rest of your outdoor decor.

Greenery & Planters

Choose a variety of plants with different heights, textures, and colors to create visual interest and enhance the natural ambiance of the space.
