What do you think the difference is between a porch and a veranda? Is there even a difference at all? I have always like the word “veranda”. It sounds so fancy and makes me think of more than just a covering over the front door of a home. In reality the two structures are somewhat the same.
Porch – A porch is basically an attached section to the house which is open to the outside air and is covered with a roof to protect the front door. It is usually at the street level, and a house can feature a front porch as well as a back porch. In addition, a porch can be used as a living space for casual seating.
Veranda – A veranda is typically an open, large, long gallery, usually covered with a roof and supported by pillars. It must be mentioned that in most of the cases, verandas usually extend equally on all the sides of the structure and may be used as a living space also.
Here is a home that I would say has the definition of a veranda. The space runs the entire front of the home and can be used as additional outdoor living space. Here at Picture Perfect Interiors, if there is living space we can help you make it inviting and a comfortable place to spend time.
Our floral designer took the customer’s existing urns filling them with a spectacular arrangement of greens, curly willow and geraniums to create a no maintenance display on the veranda.
Because the veranda spans the entire lengthen of the home there are several seating areas where we were able to place coordinating arrangements. Living in Kansas with the wind and the hot summer days this home owner will enjoy her veranda without the daily watering routine that would be required if these arrangements were live.
Whether your home has a porch or a veranda Picture Perfect Interiors can help you make an inviting display to welcome your friends and family.
