These simple and doable terrace makeover ideas will have you spending more time outdoors


Open spaces are a rarity in the city, so if you have a terrace flat or balcony, make the most of it.  There are several ways you can utilise the space – an extra seating area, extended living room, a mini garden for those with green thumbs or you can even place a grilling station in the space for a Sunday soiree.


No matter what you plan on doing with the space, there are a few constants you must keep in mind. Make sure the furniture you use is outdoor friendly – this can be plastic, polyurethane or even wicker.

Waterproof fabrics are a boon, especially when it comes to cushions, seat padding or even canopies used to shelter against the harsh sun. Plus, these are relatively easy to clean and require minimum maintenance.


Hurricanes are great when it comes to lighting as well as decoration. Invest in a few and place them at different heights to ensure there is sufficient light in the space. An outdoor fireplace not only provides light, but also helps keep the space warm.


Potted plants are always a good idea to have around. These add a hint of colour and lend an overall cosy feeling to the surrounding space. While you can grow purely ornamental plants too, those with a culinary bent can explore having their own herb garden.


Take a look at the images below for more terrace setting ideas 

Simple terrace design with small grill station and small table - Beautiful Homes
Use your terrace space to set up a grilling station. It doesn’t have to be an enormous arrangement – just a small grill station, a sideboard to store essential implements and crockery and a small table to serve your preparations.
Simple terrace design with glass panel  and slatted wooden flooring - Beautiful Homes
Glass panels provide security as well as unobstructed views if your flat is on a higher level. Slatted wooden flooring also works well for the outdoors. Instead of chairs, you can place cosy loveseats and even low stools for seating.
Simple terrace design with oversized evergreen succulents in large pots - Beautiful Homes
Oversized evergreen succulents in large pots can also be placed on your terrace to provide privacy from the surrounding buildings. These also create their own microclimate, making the space cooler than the rest. A small daybed piled with throws and cushions can create the perfect lazing nook.
Simple terrace design attached to the living room - Beautiful Homes
Another way you can make full use of the space available is by treating it as an extension of the living room, as seen in this Vadodara home. Different flooring separates the areas, but the overall indoor aesthetic has been continued outdoors as well.

Furniture with wooden undertones suits the outdoors – opt for ones with a dark colour and pair it with light upholstery for contrast. Succulents are always a good choice for the outdoors and require less care. An outdoor umbrella comes in handy as it helps protect from the elements and can be used for putting up lights as well.
