What are the benefits of a Timber Verandah in Melbourne?

A timber verandah in Melbourne, Australia, can provide a number of benefits. Firstly, it can add value to your property by increasing its curb appeal and providing additional outdoor living space. A verandah can also provide protection from the sun and rain, making it a comfortable space to enjoy the outdoors. Additionally, a timber verandah can be a sustainable choice, as wood is a natural and renewable resource. Verandahs can also be customized to suit your specific needs and preferences, so you can create a unique and functional outdoor space.

While the COVID-19 restrictions in Melbourne have hardly been anything to laugh about, if you’ve had a verandah to relax in and entertain your immediate family, then we’re sure it’s been worth its weight in gold. While restrictions are now lifting and warmer weather is on the way, your Melbourne verandah is unlikely to remain idle. It will remain a valuable asset in the months and years ahead.

All is well and good, you might say, but what if you don’t have a verandah or other outdoor structure for your home? If this applies to you, then it’s time to get planning. It’s time to design and build a new verandah that will add value and a wow factor to your Melbourne home.

6 tips for a Melbourne verandah with a wow factor

  1. One of the most important things you can do to ensure your Melbourne verandah has the wow factor is to simply make sure it matches or complements your home. As we often say at Outside Concepts, it doesn’t matter how good a new outdoor structure looks; if it doesn’t match or complement the house, it will appear out of place.
  2. It’s not rocket science, but it isn’t easy for many people to ensure an outdoor structure matches or complements a house. It is for Outside Concepts, however. By looking at aspects of your home, such as the roof style, materials, age, unique features and colour, we can easily build a verandah for you that has a wow factor.
  3. Think carefully about the size of your new Melbourne verandah and how you will use it. While it’s likely, you’ll be dictated somewhat by your block, by considering how you will use your verandah, you’ll ensure you have enough space for your needs. Need a structure to frame your home and keep the rain off the front door? Your verandah won’t need to be significant. However, it will need to be larger if you want to use your verandah to relax and entertain. If that’s the case, allow enough space for your outdoor furniture, bbq and any other items you want and enough room to walk around.
  4. Another aspect that may be dictated by your block and the verandah’s use is the position. If you want to use your verandah to relax and entertain, the ideal position is off the main living area and not far from the kitchen. Also, consider the weather and factors such as the sun.
  5. Budget will also be a key consideration when designing and building a new verandah for your Melbourne home. If the budget is tight, you can do things to get more out of the money you spend. Outside Concepts can again help with this. We’re experts at stretching your dollar further and getting the most out of your allocated money. Also, our fixed price guarantee means you’ll know what you’ll be paying upfront, apart from any unforeseen circumstances, such as finding rock when excavating.
  6. Lastly, any verandah can look a little plain when empty. So, do your best to add to it once built. Adding nice outdoor furniture, lighting, pots, vertical gardens and even the surrounding garden can make an average verandah look exceptional.
