A veranda enclosure can transform your outdoor area in many ways, creating an inviting space and a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors. Unlike regular open verandas, enclosures offer protection against the elements, while still giving you the benefit of having an outdoor space to relax, entertain and enjoy, all year round. If you have been considering a veranda upgrade in the new year, we’ve got all the inspiration you need to create a modern veranda enclosure that perfectly suits the look and design of your home.

Contemporary Veranda Enclosure Ideas

Whether you are adding a front or back veranda, there are a few ways that you could plan your veranda enclosure. Ultimately, the type of enclosure you choose will depend on your home’s design and available space, as well as your specific requirements. To help you get started, we’ve put together a list of ideas. Here are just a few enclosure options for your veranda.


Aluminium doors come in a variety of styles. French doors are always a classic choice, while modern folding stacking doors and frameless glass doors are ideal if you want to maximise available light. These doors can span across the entire perimeter of your veranda-facing wall. They work very well for living rooms that lead out to outdoor areas and offer a seamless indoor-outdoor design. Regular patio doors and even fixed glass panels can also be used if you are looking for something simple yet stylish.


Although balustrades are typically used on balconies, they can also work well on verandas. These are a great alternative to walls, acting as boundaries along the veranda in a subtle way. There are numerous styles available, from elegant aluminium balustrades to modern glass balustrades.

Ceilings with downlights

Installing a ceiling with downlights will help to create a covered veranda that offers subtle lighting. Downlights evenly distribute light, with a contemporary, versatile look. These can be used to create an open-fronted outdoor space that flows from living areas, with folding stacking doors, French doors or frameless doors installed on the living area wall.
