In today’s world and in modern homes, the only way to spend some time outside beyond the four walls is in the veranda or balcony or terrace or whatever you call it. You can enjoy the fresh air and bask in sunshine without even leaving the comfort of your home. So today we have come up with some useful tips to help you design or refurbish your veranda to make it cozier, comfortable and enticing. Have a look!
Nothing can be more cooling and calming than greenery all around. Isn’t it? Make the most of the available space and convert it into a green space of your home. Big or small, a garden can be grown anywhere. Hanging pots, planters, lawn, fountain… you just have to unleash your imagination and be creative. The most amazing fact with green space is that it is pocket friendly. Select the plants which suit the amount of sunlight available in your veranda and go green.
The vibrancy of fresh green and flowering plants can transform the look and feel of the terrace. All your investment and effort will go in waste if you cannot enjoy and admire its beauty. Invest in beautiful and comfortable garden chairs. There are lots of options available in cane. Cane furniture is durable and can withstand the climatic variation with ease. Above all, it looks beautiful in its natural wood and black colours and will enhance the ambiance and natural beauty of the space.
Normal is boring and surely it is if you want your balcony to stand out from your neighbour’s. Replace the normal and predictable tiles or rug with artificial green carpet imitating a lush green lawn. You can complement it with wooden pathway and stones to add some extra beauty and zing to your veranda.
Now this is one thing that attracts young and old equally, a beautiful swing in home. In fact it is a favourite ‘pass time’ for many. Hang the swing in your veranda and lounge around lazily while enjoying the view of the garden or the city from there.
Make your evening romantic and alluring by lighting it right. If too much of sunlight is robbing the pleasure of the balcony, obstruct it with green leafy plants and wooden or cane beam. It will block the sunlight and keep the balcony cool even in harsh Indian summers.
If space allows then why not do something different to create a terrace filled with nature and natural surroundings. Define the area with natural cane and decorate it with greenery so that you can fully enjoy the winter sun or star filled summer nights with your family and friends.
