This house has a very *lived in* feel to it. Cheap garden lattice can be used almost anywhere in the garden to great effect. It is cheap, easy to use and is usually treated. The only place it should be used on a house is to disguise the space underneath them in flood prone areas. Though garden lattice can add charm to a home, as a decorative treatment on a verandah it fails to impress. This house looks like it has been rented for a very long time.
Lose the garden lattice
Removing the garden lattice on this verandah would make a big difference to this house. An even bigger improvement would be made by losing the old cane blind as well and cleaning up a bit. A nice coat of paint would be the icing on the cake.
