Verandahs can be great places to spend time, but it can be difficult to keep your Verandahs Adelaide cool when the weather is warm and sunny. Here are some ideas on how you could make your verandah more summer-proof:

  1. Plan your shade

The first thing you’ll want to consider is your shade. You should make sure you have enough shade for your verandah, so that it doesn’t become too hot and uncomfortable. A good rule of thumb is that if it’s too bright and sunny outside, there will also be too much sun on the verandah. If this is the case, try adding some additional shade using blinds or awnings.

  1. Consider Privacy

Privacy is important for outdoor areas. A Carports Adelaide can be a wonderful space to relax, but you don’t want passersby looking in on your private moments (or maybe you do). The right combination of elements can help make your verandah feel less open.

  • Fencing or hedges can provide privacy without taking up too much space. A hedge will provide some shade, too!
  • Trellis work well for smaller spaces as they allow air to pass through while providing privacy from the side and back. They also look nice when filled with climbing plants like ivy or wisteria in spring, summer and autumn.
  • Shade sails are another great way to add shade to an outdoor area without taking up any extra room—they just hang from poles above you! They come in many different shapes and sizes so it should be easy enough to find one that suits your needs whether you have a small space or one big enough for entertaining guests during summer parties outside your home!

  1. Add a bit of love to your walls

While you may think that the first step to creating a beautiful verandah is to throw some plants on your walls, there are many more ways to add color and life than that.

  1. Ensure you have the right outdoor furniture

The right outdoor furniture will be durable and comfortable, but it should also be able to withstand the elements. You need to consider how much space you have and what your budget is as well.

Think about how often you use your verandah, and make sure that the furniture chosen is durable enough to last for years. It should also be easy to clean, easy to store and user-friendly so that everyone can find something they like in your choice of seating.

  1. Include some greenery

If you want your verandah to look like it’s living, breathe and feel natural, then consider including some greenery. Potted plants are a great way to spruce up your verandah space, but they can also help make it more comfortable and inviting when used in conjunction with other summer proofing strategies (like installing blinds or screening).
