1.Get an exterior with all the necessary comfort elements on a terrace

When we have a rectangular area outside the house, it may be appropriate to create a virtual wooden module (see the next photo) where we can add a comfortable sofa in front of the bonfire that has an interesting design.

As a novelty in the design of this terrace is the inclusion of a jacuzzi, which together with the hammock will become the ideal area to relax located on the side of the house.

6.The design of the garden is an important part of the decoration of the terrace.

A trend currently is the creation of figures in the garden that can be converted into an original terrace if we add furniture made of vegetable fibers. If you are interested in this type of designs do not forget to combine materials and colors such as stone and shrub shapes:

9.Use of pergolas and other structural elements outdoors

Play with several elements for your terrace, the use of pergolas is another important design resource. If you have a passage or tour outside the house you can take the option of roofing it virtually (for example with wooden bars) and then cover it with climbing plants. Let’s see an exterior model of a rustic house.

10.Creating two terraces in one when we have a large outdoor space

Finally, we shall see the design of a terrace that is a bit more complex that you can use if you have a large outdoor space. It is a winding route and the center would be located the main terrace with a stone fire. At the end of the route is a smaller and intimate terrace; Two types of wood colors have been combined in the floors and the way they are placed, the rails are made of wood with iron.
