Imagine having a cup of favorite coffee or breakfast every morning in the outdoor space, while being protected from the elements. But which outdoor space that is suitable? We heard a lot about lanai, porch, patio or veranda.These terms are often considered fairly synonymous and depending on who you ask there is no difference. However, there are distinct characteristics that separate the four outdoor living spaces.
The simplest of outdoor spaces is the patio, which is characterized by a simple exterior grade flooring such as brick or paver. Porches, on the other hand, are often roofed extensions on the front or back of the house. Porches that wrap around the sides or go all the way around the house are often considered verandas. Then there is lanai. Lanai porches are characterized by their screen enclosures. Like porches, they have a roof and may have many amenities like furniture or even an outdoor kitchen but the screened partitions are its defining character. Of course, in some designs, these screens may be removable making classification even more challenging. In short, herewith the styles and characteristics of each outdoor living spaces
- Patio - Basic, hardscape ground layer (i.e. brick or paver)
- Porch - Roofed extension of front or back of house
- Veranda - Also known as a wraparound porch, open, and roofed
- Lanai- Screened-in porch or veranda, screens may be removable
Lanai porches take their name from the Hawaiian island of Lanai, of which the design is said to have originated. In fact, the lanai is a common feature on many buildings. Lanais (building with lanai) are generally considered screened-in.Screened lanais are not only beautiful but functional. If you have pets, they can enjoy the outdoor environment safely at all times. If you have young children, there are lockable door options for their safety.
