Owning a private open space is a dream of most city people. Watching the stars and night go by or performing yoga asanas early in the morning, a private terrace is the most convenient place for it. Hosting elaborate parties or just a close-knit barbecue with your loved ones, an open terrace allows you to execute it all. Fortunately, all of Isprava’s private villas in Goa and villas for sale in Coonoor come with airy terraces offering beautiful sunset views. Here is a list of ways you can bring the best out of your terrace.
Light it up
Lighting is probably one of the most essential elements to be added to a terrace. While your day might be blessed with plenty of natural light, at night, having the terrace adequately lit up becomes essential. Shielded bulbs, string lights, lamps, floor lights and wall lights are great ways of killing the darkness. They also help the terrace look really pretty.
Add some greenery
A terrace will look dry and dull unless you add some greens to it. So bring out the planters, creepers and flowering greens to add some freshness and colours. Maintaining these plants on the terrace becomes an easy task due to direct sunlight and easy flow of water.
Designated drink station
The moment you see a spacious terrace, the first thing to cross your mind is to set-up a personal bar. And why not? Its where all your fun parties are going to take place. Setting up a bar on the terrace is a great way to utilise the space. Couple the bar with a barbecue and you have you the most perfect evening setting.
Whether you want to soak up the sun or curl up with a book, an outdoor daybed or lounge chair is all you need for a restful retreat. Add some outdoor pillows to make things extra comfy. If you’re short on space, try installing furniture that can be tucked or folded away when not in use. This folding table disappears to free up floor space. Place a center table surrounded by cushioned chairs or a coffee table on the side.
You may be in the city, but there’s no reason your terrace can’t feel like you’re on vacation. A hanging chair, swing or hammock create a laid-back vibe.
