The veranda is a roofed porch built onto the side of a residence. Verandas rose in popularity throughout the Southern United States in the nineteenth century because they blocked the sun from hitting the sides of the home directly, and thereby mitigated some of the heat and humidity. Today, they are used for similar reasons, but they not only offer respite from the weather, but also a shady spot for dining, drinking, and entertaining.

No matter what climate you live in, enjoying the outdoors should be about relaxation. The veranda offers a break from the stagnant indoor air, but it’s also quite limited in terms of amenities and climate control. At Kensington Garden Rooms, we offer much more than verandas. We design, build, deliver, and install cedar garden rooms (also known as gazebos) that will function more like a luxury veranda than just an open-air porch.

Luxury Veranda Amenities

As with any addition to your home, there are a myriad of ways to approach building your veranda. You may want to begin modestly and prioritize the utilitarian aspects of the project: additional shade that will reduce energy costs and provide some respite from the sun. But for those looking for a luxury veranda, there are other factors that go well beyond it being just another porch.

For example, you may want to think about furniture and décor. You’ll want to match the design and layout of your property by means of color or scale. If you think of your veranda as a kind of outdoor living room for at least part of the year, then you’ll need to purchase tables and chairs. In other words, there are plenty of options, and you’re going to need some assistance.

The Garden Room vs. The Veranda

Wouldn’t it be more convenient if every part of our your outdoor living space came in a single, aesthetically coherent bundle? At Kensington Garden Rooms, we offer hand–crafted garden rooms (also known as gazebos) that will complement your property, and give you and your family an outdoor living space for dining, entertaining, and relaxation.

Our garden rooms are built out of Canadian western red cedar, which is insect and weather–resistant, and include HDTVs, wine coolers, cozy lounging and sophisticated dining areas. If you’re considering a veranda, but want more control over the temperature, sun exposure, and your own comfort and convenience, then get in touch with us today. Our cedar garden rooms include a lifetime guarantee, and we take care of everything, from design to delivery and installation.
