    Veranda Vs Patio

    Veranda and patio are two terms that are sometimes confused with each other. While both a veranda and patio are exterior spaces for your home, they are not quite the same. A veranda is an outdoor structure with a roof that can be attached to or detached from the house. A patio, on the other hand, is just a hard floor area, normally adjacent to a property..

    What is a Patio?

    A patio is an outdoor area attached to the outside of your house where entertaining or just relaxing can be done in style. It’s a relatively new home design concept as recently as ten years ago but is now becoming commonplace.

    Patios are built separately from the house to allow for a great view of the outdoors, and even with closed doors, it can give the impression of being outdoors without the elements ruining your good time.

    They are made of brick, stone, concrete, wood or some other material that will withstand a lot of wear and tear such as fading and cracking. A patio will work best if you have a small yard, garden or large space at the front of your home.

    A new patio can be the focal point of a great garden design, offering possibilities for outdoor entertaining or just quiet relaxation. Don’t be fooled into thinking that a patio should just be for looks. A patio will make use of an area you might otherwise neglect and it can add to the value of your home, making it more attractive to potential buyers.

    What Are the Different Types of Patios?

    Paver Patios

    Pavers are easy to install, low maintenance landscape materials, and can be installed in patios either with or without the use of mortar.

    The best part is that you are able to choose from a wide variety of pavers, colour, patterns and textures, which gives you the ultimate freedom to choose what appeals the most to your taste.

    From modern to traditional, you can find an array of pavers to fit your taste and style.

    Brick Patios

    Brick patios have been around for hundreds of years and look especially attractive when they are designed for a specific architectural style.

    They usually require a greater time and effort investment than other types of patios, but the end results are often worth it.

    These patios add beauty and value to your house while updating its look and feel. It can be created in a variety of styles, but using bricks makes it unique from all other types of patios. Brick is an extremely durable material so these types of patios will usually last for ages.

    Flagstone Patios

    Flagstone patios are beautiful and long-lasting, and their complex textures allow you to create a truly unique back garden oasis.

    Whether you want to create an elegant, complex pattern or a more simple design, flagstone patios can be installed in almost any shape or size with the many different materials available today.

    Flagstone patio surfaces look irregular in shape but are generally patterned with some sort of symmetry. The joints between the stones are completely random which creates an interesting design.

    Gravel Patios

    Gravel patios have an earthy, rustic quality to them. They are composed of stones that may vary in size. These natural products lend the patio an attractive, weathered look. Gravel patios are also very durable and easy to keep clean.

    The main goal of this patio type is to create a functional area in your back garden that serves as an outdoor living area, a place where guests can come together to enjoy the outdoors or just relax in the shade of trees.

    Slate Patios

    Slate patios are a natural option for patios with the slate placed like flagstone steps. The slabs are easily laid out and offer a solid surface that’s great for walking on in bare feet or covered with chairs and tables for entertaining.

    Slate fits nicely in a variety of patio settings, from beautiful highlands to seaside cottages.

    What Is The Difference Between a Veranda and a Patio?

    A patio is a type of outdoor living space that can be used for entertainment or relaxation. The most common materials for patios are concrete, stone, brick, and tile. A veranda is an enclosed porch with one or more walls made from lattice work, typically aluminium frame to allow air circulation.

    Verandas typically provide protection from the sun during the day but still allow the evening breeze to flow through them. Verandas can be found in many different climates because they offer protection from rain and sun whereas patios are only used in warmer climates.

    Patios may also have furniture set up around them to provide additional seating options. Patios often include plants, furniture, fire pits, table tops or grills so that you can enjoy outdoor living year-round.

    Verandas usually have more architectural detail than patios because they are often considered an extension of the interior space of your home. A veranda can be used for cooking, entertaining guests, or just relaxing in the sun. The main difference between a patio and a veranda is that patios tend to be designed for use year-round, whereas many people use their veranda only during warmer months when it’s too hot outside without any protection from the sun.

    Are you dreaming of Veranda with a glass roof?

    Verandas with a glass roof allow more light in throughout your home because there is no fabric shade. Sunlight floods into the space, creating a comfortable feeling. It offers a contemporary design that is sleek and stylish. They give you the option of an open or enclosed feel; all while enjoying fresh airflow during the warmer months.
