On the current veranda market , there are a myriad of solutions that will allow you to enlarge your house : colors, shapes, materials, but also the desired area !
However, depending on your need for expansion, the size of your land or your budget, a small veranda can sometimes prove to be a very good solution for enjoying a new living space in summer and winter.
Generally, verandas below an area of 15 m2 are considered small verandas . These small verandas do not adapt to all projects, but can however take on many advantages and assets.
A SMALL VERANDA IS NOT VERY EXPENSIVE

First advantage, but not least, a small veranda is generally and logically, a smaller budget . Indeed, the larger the area of your veranda , the higher the final price will be. Of course, other factors are still to be taken into account to define your budget and the final price such as: the type of material used for your veranda ( aluminum , wrought iron, PVC or even wooden frame for example), the quality of the service provider or the desired glazing and security options.
Do not hesitate to ask for a free and personalized study of your project in order to have an idea of the price of a small wooden or aluminum veranda. However, we recommend that you do not invest in a small veranda kit as we explained in this article .
A SMALL VERANDA = LESS ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES AND ANCILLARY WORK
Another advantage of a small veranda , it requires less administrative procedures and ancillary work. It is therefore much faster to build than a large veranda!
Indeed, if the veranda does not exceed an area of 20m2, a simple prior declaration of work is sufficient to have your small veranda built, unlike large verandas which automatically require a building permit. The administrative delays are therefore shorter than for a large project.
In addition, a small veranda does not require as much ancillary work as a large veranda with many walls and low walls , and for which it is necessary to provide a certain number of technical elements ( masonry , plumbing, electricity, integrated heating, etc.). again, you will save time in the implementation of your project: a non-negligible advantage for some.

By placing a table, a few chairs, and why not a small plant and a nice rug, you will get a choice, warm and friendly space to take your meals. Finally, with a small dining veranda, it’s a bit like eating outside all year round… while being inside and well sheltered from the weather!
Of course, to make the most of your small veranda dining room, it must be well insulated. And to obtain good thermal and sound insulation in a veranda , turn instead to the solution of double glazing . In terms of the choice of materials, we advise you to opt for aluminum frames with a thermal break or for a wooden veranda , a naturally insulating material.
