veranda is the perfect outdoor accessory for any home. Create the perfect transition from indoors to out for entertaining, dining or relaxing in any climate or weather condition. Whether open top, partially enclosed or completely undercover, we have a range of verandas for you to choose from.

Those In Glass Houses…

This example is perfect for those who love to feel as though they are outdoors, but are too often at the mercy of inclement weather. Replicating a traditional glasshouse structure for fruit and vegetables, this enclosed space allows for the maximum solar heat gains and penetration of natural light. Or, if it takes your fancy, watch the clouds roll in from over the horizon and witness the lightning strike.

Spacious, light filled, well vented and protected from the elements; what more could you need? This veranda has the ability to be used year round and suits a wide range of weather conditions. The designer has cleverly installed ceiling fans to provide adequate ventilation and circulation of air flow; a very sustainable and environmentally friendly option to air-conditioning.

Outdoor Escape

Reminiscent of the great outdoors, this example of veranda design makes you feel as though you are at one with nature during your BBQ or outdoor dining experience. The colours of the roofing and poles match the environment, seamlessly blending it into its sourroudnings.

Beach Retreat

If you want to take the beach or vacation with you everyday, then a rattan roof painted white is the perfect way to replicate a resort in the Mediterranean. Suited better for a home with a mainly white colour scheme, this setting is for the die hard ocean enthusiasts or those who already live near the seaside.


This little pocked sized veranda is the perfect retreat if you are short on space but still value multipurpose outdoor seating. Reminiscent of a rotunda in a big reserve, you can have your own private seating spot for breakfast, lunches and dinners.
