Terrace is an ideal relaxation place for all those living in an apartment.
Unlike homeowners that have a big backyard, majority of city people have to turn to terraces as a place for enjoying some fresh air.
Here are some tips that will help you arrange things on your terrace.
Choose the right furniture
First thing you should consider is the size of the terrace. You also need to consider whether the terrace is open or closed. This may also affect the material used for making the furniture.
When it comes to open terraces, plastic furniture fits perfectly. Have in mind that plastic pieces look cheap in comparison to other types of furniture. However, if you’re not interested in décor, they can work for you.
Depending on the size of the terrace, you can even create a grill area. This outdoor kitchen is ideal for long summer days when you prefer not to remain in-house.
You can even add a dining room, chairs and big pillows that will improve the complete experience allowing you also to eat outside.
Even though there are some solutions for open terraces, it is much better to keep them closed. Among other things, closed terraces allow you to add lights.
If you wish to create a romantic atmosphere you can add torches or heaters. Have in mind that fire can be a great source of light and create really cozy atmosphere but you will have to add a fireplace in order to do that.
Cloth and pillows for coziness
Given that you don’t have that much space to improvise, cloth for your furniture will play a major role when it comes décor.
Terrace can easily become comfortable depending on the type of material you wish to use. You can put a carpet on the floor in order to get additional warmth and comfort.
If you’re wearing shoes on the terrace, it is better to buy a carpet made from cheaper material. Otherwise, stains will become obvious after a while. Make sure to add some pillows to the furniture to make it even more comfy.
Décor can be tricky
Decorating your terrace is really challenging. Again, it all comes down to available space.
Like with backyard you can try certain ideas you would never consider doing inside of the house. For example, you can use statues, plants and other trinkets. Most of these items are not affected by bad weather so it doesn’t matter whether your terrace is open or closed.
Nevertheless, if your terrace is open, you can use a big umbrella to cover it up a bit. It will be both functional and decorative.
Depending on its primary use you can add some more items to your terrace such as grill, ping-pong table, workout equipment etc.
Storage space is also a good idea
In order for terrace to be more functional and not only relaxation space, you can also use it as storage. You can add several shelves alongside the wall or a cabinet.
This is the perfect place for leaving your gardening tools and other items that otherwise tend to get filthy.
