Furnishing tips: design a terrace in a modern way
You landed on my interior blog because you are looking for ideas on how to make a terrace modern? Congratulations, I have 5 different design ideas for you today. From the small city balcony to the boho-chic terrace and also for the XL version, I have a suggestion ready. Scroll through the post, gather some inspiration and off you go. By the way, there is also a small insight into an area in our home!
- How do I make my patio cozy? Basically, making a balcony or terrace cozy is not a big deal. With textiles, carpets, candles, lanterns, plants and your favorite decorations, you can quickly and inexpensively create an oasis of well-being. It is best to decide on a color concept in advance and think about which style you would like to have. This makes the outdoor area appear much more harmonious and invites you to relax all the more. You can also create a large portion of cosiness with lounge furniture, loungers or daybeds.
- What should not be missing on the terrace? Every terrace owner will probably answer this question individually. Depending on the conditions of the outdoor area, the must-haves will of course differ. In general, I would argue that a well-appointed patio should definitely have some shade and an area to sit or lounge. Remaining add-ons such as side tables, flower pots or raised beds can then be added depending on the space and taste.
- How do I design my terrace cheaply? Online shops in particular are ideal if you want to set up a terrace cheaply. Here you have a good overview and can compare prices as best as possible. At WestwingNow, for example, I like to orient myself towards their own brand Westwing Collection. There are always great bargains to be found in the sale. But there is also a really good selection in this interior online shop. Tip: You can often get hold of equally good terrace bargains second-hand.
5 tips on how to make a terrace modern
#1 Design a small patio
One small terracee or a balcony can definitely be made cozy and inviting. Since here the space limited is, you should think carefully in advance about what you value in the outdoor living room. Is it him? chic bistro table for the weekend breakfast outdoors, or should it? prefer the outdoor lounger become a slouch?
#2 Monochrome! Design a terrace in black and white
minimalists get their money’s worth here. Outdoor furniture in the well-known non-colours black and white are suitable for both the balcony and the terrace. With a simple design the setting always looks classy and elegant. If you still feel like a bit of colour, this can be easily implemented with textiles such as cushions, blankets and carpets.

You have lots of space outside and you don’t want to take a step back when designing a modern terrace? For example, combine a lavish dining area with a couch area, or choose chic XL loungers with cozy beanbags to lounge around in. There are no limits here!
#5 Island flair for the balcony/patio at home
do you want you the typical island flair on your terrace or city balcony, then use materials such as rattan, raffia and jute. Combine neutral colors and a beautiful, strong blue. So come holiday mood on – too at home on balconies!
Cozy and modern: my lounge area on the terrace

We have recently redesigned one of our terraces including the garden area. A small area has proven very good for this a lounge area offered. There is just enough space for a deck chair and a side table as storage space.
