Just as the houses are spacious and luxurious or tiny and modest, so are their balconies, terraces or verandas. However, their size does not matter to us today, because we want to concentrate mainly on modern terrace design. The nice weather is coming soon and we all need new ideas to make this outdoor space as comfortable and cozy as possible. Here are 50 sample pictures and a few creative ideas on how to do that. And don’t worry if you don’t have enough finances for this purpose. Your imagination and creativity are mainly needed here and you have to put them into play now.
- Floor design on the terrace and veranda
Let’s start with the floor on the balcony, terrace or veranda. In older apartments and houses it can be made of wood. The wooden planks can be left natural or painted in one color. If necessary, you can roll out a small rug on it and increase the feeling of warmth and cosiness. There is also more modern flooring for outside. First and foremost, the high-quality tiles should be mentioned, which are totally weather-resistant, scratch-resistant and non-slip. They are currently available in different sizes and colors so that you can always choose the right one. And when it comes to terrace flooring, teak is still very trendy, although it is the most expensive variant.
- Terrace furniture and accessories
What would an outdoor area be without comfortable furniture where you could really relax? Furniture and accessories play a key role in modern patio or veranda design. Depending on the available space, you can choose them and consider their positioning. Assume how many hours you want to spend outside in the sun and which way your patio is facing. This is an important strategy when designing balconies, patios and verandas. When it comes to patio furniture, the sofa is essential for us. It makes the atmosphere outside cozy and immediately invites you to linger for a longer period of time. But if you have more space outside, we recommend a corner sofa that can accommodate several people. Comfortable armchairs and stools, even poufs and / or swings are also part of the patio furniture. Throw a few cuddly soft decorative pillows here and there to complete the cozy look outside. In the specialty shops you will find everything you need for every taste and bag. It should also be mentioned that you can choose between patio furniture made of wood, rattan or wrought iron. Self-made furniture made from pallets has also become very popular recently. The range is really diverse, you just have to determine your popular style and personal preferences before buying.
- Green plants on the balcony, terrace or veranda
For everyone with a green thumb, now is the best time to show what they can do. But there are also many design ideas with green plants for balconies and patios, even for beginners. Do not forget that the green is particularly good for us all, it calms the eyes and soul and lets you really relax. Whether you choose flower pots or planters is entirely up to you, but always consider the size of your outdoor space so you don’t get cluttered. Immerse yourself in the scent of aromatic flowering plants and enjoy endless hours outdoors. Flank your patio or porch with evergreen potted plants and admire every sight there. Or maybe you would opt for a vertical garden and try to create it yourself? So many design options are open to you, you just have to access them!
