Glass verandas are essentially a glass roofed porch that is most commonly added on to the wall facing a garden or a courtyard. A nice way to think about a glass veranda is that it is a cheaper alternative to a conservatory, that also allows you to enjoy the experience of being outside whilst also being sheltered from any bad weather.

Glass verandas can vary in size to fit your needs; you can have a small one just to cover a couple of chairs and a table to enjoy sitting/eating outside, or get a large one that can cover an entire patio, allowing you to leave a range of furniture outside protected from the rain and also even have enough room to enjoy a barbecue no matter the weather.

The simplicity of a glass veranda means that it can be styled with great variety, allowing it to match the scheme of your walls or patio, so that the glass veranda becomes not only a great practical addition to your house, but also an aesthetically pleasing addition.
