In terms of habitat, the big trend is to open and expand volumes. We want to open and make more outward facing our living rooms, but also the entire house. In this context, the veranda which perfectly combines gaining space and light, is one of the most popular solutions. Nearly 80,000 verandas are built each year in France. A success due in particular to the technical progress that allows to enjoy them all year. With a median size of 20 m² for an average budget of 24 000 euros, the veranda remains a significant investment, causing significant work. Houzz took advice from recognised specialists on how to approach the creation of the veranda of your dreams serenely.

Heating and energy savings
Currently, 60% of the verandas built are heated (SNFA data) to enhance their thermal comfort.
Users report that reversible heating on a heat pump or underfloor heating would be real comfort solutions for a controlled cost. Jean-Luc Marchand, general delegate of SNFA, even reveals that a veranda conceived and created following bioclimatic rules is a certain source of energy savings, whether heated or not.
