Hi there folks! Let’s talk about verandas. First, we have to know what it even means. Baranda or Verandah is a Bengali word meaning an open-air gallery, or basically, simply put a porch. Although verandah is the correct spelling, we often omit the “h”, so we came to a term veranda.
It usually spreads across the entire front of a house, even the sides. Also, it is often enclosed by a railing. In the US, every porch can be called a veranda. However, most of the world considers it to be enclosed, and specific part of a building made for rest and relaxation.
A veranda is a place where we can stay for the whole year and we do not have to worry about the weather outside, where it is snowing, or it is sizzling hot. It is a place of rest, relaxation but also a place to sit with your family. Many artists use verandas as a workspace.
It associates us with the seaside, Mediterranean, but also to a mountain home. Despite that, more and more city homes have their own veranda, its flower oasis for relaxation.
