A veranda, big or small, adds charm to a house while also expanding the living space. Even quite a small veranda expands the living space significantly. You wouldn't think of sitting in a room as small as the space below, but once you're outdoors, it's a perfect place to enjoy the day, talk with friends, or read a good book.
These examples, all painted by Sydney Painters Courtney & Wise, show how clever use of colour can make a veranda stand out. The example above, an award-winning heritage paint job, uses glossy bottle green and soft butter yellow to create a beautiful space.
The example at the top of this post and the one below both use neutral colours with strong contrast to dramatic effect.
