Many homes nowadays are being inspired to have a place where one can feel the presence of nature by accessing natural light and fresh air. Many mansions, commercial houses, and residential houses are trying to gain attention by having terraces where one can feel and enjoy nature. You can also give your customers, employees or guests the same feeling by having either a terrace, a rooftop deck or patio. This can give them a great outside experience affecting their feelings, mood, productivity, and performance. This thirst for having a place where one can feel nature has pushed architects to design and make more rooftops areas to quench bring the natural feeling to many structures. I have come up with about seven inspirations ideas for terraces and rooftops. They can help and motivate you when implementing a terrace or a rooftop for your home or your business.
The first one is a beautiful sand terrace
You can imagine having a restaurant located outside or with a cool dining area and entertaining room with a grand and open environment. You can bring the interior effects to the outside by making a great sitting environment. Don’t miss or ignore any interior setting when sitting outside. You can choose the wood decking to make it attractive. Forget about the expensive carpets, you can bring the beach environment by making your whole floor covered with sand to make a sandpit. Walking on the sand gives you a cool feeling.
The second is to make the place private
Terraces are meant to help one hide from the world to relax and reflect your life when you are alone. With a rooftop terrace, you can create a place where you can hide and relax. You can have solid walls made of wood or walls with eclectic features made of materials that create a private atmosphere. The materials should be mostly the same but it always depends on your choice. A great terrace should have walls with an atmosphere that attracts privacy where you can sit and have a private conversation, relax, have some entertainment and hide from the world.
The third is wide view coverage.
A terrace and a building should contemporary match. When a terrace is on a rooftop, it should be located in an area where it is not blocked by other buildings and it should have a maximum view and function. There should be a total contrast between the decking lines materials and the furniture materials used to keep it uniform. Sunny terraces need to have a light color which is ideal because it does not heat up making the environment uncomfortable. This way one can enjoy the surroundings and stay there for a long time without getting bored.
The fourth idea is to enhance the view
When one is relaxing he or she keeps looking around. With a great view, you will feel attracted to spent time on the rooftop terrace and view the environment around you. This can be achieved by having natural colors surrounding the terrace. This gives the soft elegant view.
The fifth is to have a design that is closed
A rooftop terrace that is closed with glasses gives a spectacular view. The only problem with this is the greenhouse effect, especially during summer. It works best during winter but you can install coolers.
The sith idea is implementing a shade.
Shade on a rooftop terrace makes your rooftop look cool and adaptable since you can choose to bask on the sun or hide in the shade when the sun is too hot. The shade should be designed well to make it attracting and unifying the whole environment. The atmosphere also should be organic.
The last idea is the decoration
You can decorate your rooftop terrace by having a small swimming pool, attractive plants and flowers, having some artwork around, using some natural wood or having some pets cages. Installing colorful lights also plays an important role.
Now you are set to go and set your new terrace.
