The veranda is back in fashion, although many would say it has never lost its appeal to those in the know. As people choose more and more to stay in their home and shape it to the lifestyle instead of moving, the veranda is a cost-effective way to make a change that is enjoyable to use and beautiful to look at.
If you're interested in building a veranda with a pergola in a contemporary style (also known as een veranda met pergola in een hedendaagse stijl bouwen in Dutch language) look at the range of design of veranda online.
If you have a more traditional home then you may want to blend the veranda to fit with the original aspect. To achieve this you can combine slender columns, frieze panels and brackets with glass roof panels. A frieze panel here would be a decorative metal panel.
Even with an older home, a contemporary look can add interesting contrast. Gone are the frieze panels and slender columns, but the use of metal remains. To achieve a modern appearance, the glass roof panels can be finished with a simple lower edge and more solid columns.
Gabled design verandas more closely resembles that of a regular roofing design, where two sides of the pitched roof have gables at the sides.
