Verandas for balconies: types, solutions and regulations

Those who live in cities or on the upper floors of a building often don't have the opportunity to enjoy the comfort of a garden and live moments of relaxation outside their home. For this reason, if you have a balcony or a terrace, it's very important to be able to make the most of it, not only during the summer but also in winter. Verandas for balconies that completely or partially close the terrace allow you to better connect the balcony to the rest of the house, creating an environment that can be enjoyed at any time of day. Depending on the size of the balcony and your needs, the veranda can be used as a living area furnished with sofas and armchairs, or it can be transformed into a charming dining room with a panoramic view. Or the veranda can be a corner for studying, a fitness area, or more simply become a small greenhouse where you can take care of flowers and plants sheltered from the elements.

Harmonious and lightweight but at the same time robust and safe, thanks to their versatility, the wide range of models available - including some types of custom sun sails - and the possibility of combining multiple sails, they are able to satisfy any need, turning a garden into a little corner of paradise.
