Don’t ignore the home terrace arrangement. Because the area of transition to the inner space also has an important role in creating the impression of a building with its position that lies in the face of the building (facade).
Some owners even use the terrace as a sitting area and gather with family and relatives. Thus the arrangement needs to be considered so that the terrace looks beautiful and comfortably occupied.
In the decoration process, there are five important things that you must pay attention to. These five things are able to change the look of the terrace to be beautiful and attractive.
1.The right furniture
Placing chairs and tables on the terrace is a must-do considering the function of the terrace as the reception area as well as the sitting area. Adjust the number of seats with available land area.
If you have a large enough area and use the terrace as a gathering area, then you can place a series of chairs or sofas that are equipped with a coffee table. While for limited land, placing two single chair is enough.
Because the position of the terrace is outside, then choose outdoor furniture that is weather resistant such as furniture made from synthetic rattan or solid wood. The design choices should be adjusted to the architectural style of the building.
For example, sleek and simple design furniture for typical modern buildings or carved chairs for classic-style buildings.
2. Wall and floor material
Wall and floor cover material is one of the elements that can enhance the look of the terrace. For floor coverings, choose material that is not slippery so it is safe to use. Examples are textured ceramics or natural stones.
Floor ceramic motifs are now increasingly diverse, ranging from plain motifs to motifs that resemble natural materials such as natural stone, wood or bamboo.
While on the wall, you can adjust it to the overall appearance of the facade. For example, by exposing a red brick wall to a natural tropical style building.
3. Decorate with plants
The simplest thing you can do to change the look of the terrace is by placing a pot containing plants around the terrace.
The pot can be placed in the corners of the room and can also be hung on the ceiling. Choose plants that are easy to maintain. The presence of plants makes the terrace feel more comfortable and beautiful.
4. An eye catching accessory
Decorate your home terrace with attractive decorative elements such as art work or wall art. No need to be large and luxurious, the important thing is that its presence is able to attract attention.
5. Lighting element
In addition to general lighting that functions to illuminate the room as a whole, you can also place a spot light lamp to illuminate certain objects on the terrace such as wall hangings.
You can also use accent lighting with eye catching light colors as accents on the terrace wall. Yellow light can be an option if you want to build a warm and luxurious atmosphere.
