Many people dream of building a country house, and they translate their ideas into reality. This is fresh air, and some isolation from people, and the opportunity to do gardening. The terrace provides even more opportunities for comfort and relaxation.
Therefore, when building or buying a house, it makes sense to consider projects of houses with a terrace with an area of up to 150 sq. m.
Advantages and disadvantages
Houses with a terrace up to 150 sq. may look different. It depends on the number of storeys, materials used, decorative elements. Of course, they have much more pros than cons. But you need to take into account all the nuances so that you do not regret your choice later.
The benefits include several factors:
- your house allows you to organize your personal space at your own discretion, without looking back at your neighbors;
- such a house has a sufficient number of rooms to accommodate comfortably all family members and receive guests;
- the terrace in the house gives a chance to equip a wonderful place for relaxation;
- the personal plot allows you to equip flower beds, do landscape design;
- in such a house there is no need to pay for utilities separately, the payment is only for electricity, plus gas, if supplied.
The disadvantages are that a large room requires a higher payment for electricity, especially in winter, when there is also heating. All life support systems of the house are completely under the control of those living in it. Therefore, the presence of a person who understands these systems, at least approximately, is necessary. In addition, some drawbacks may emerge in the process of how the house is set up. But if there is a good owner in the house, he will eventually eliminate everything.
Layout options for one-story houses
It is necessary to plan where and what premises will be located in advance. A one-storey house with a terrace can be arranged so that the terrace will be combined with the porch, and then the entrance to the house will be from the terrace.
But there is an option when the porch is on one side, and the terrace is on the other, and you can go to it from the living room or kitchen. This is also convenient when you consider that tea parties, dinners and even parties can be held on the terrace.
In the very room of a one-story house, you can equip the following premises:
- spacious hall;
- kitchen-living room;
- toilet and bathroom;
- three bedrooms;
The very location of these rooms depends on the wishes of the owners. It is wiser to make bedrooms on the opposite side of the kitchen and terrace. Place a bathroom at the entrance.
Projects of two-storey houses
A two-storey house with a terrace or veranda offers more options and significantly more space. In addition to the terrace in the house, there may be a balcony on the second floor.
A bathroom is needed both on the first and on the second floor. It is possible to place a shower room on the first floor, and a bathroom on the second. This will be especially appropriate considering that I most often have bedrooms on the second floor. It can be 3 or 4 small rooms or 2 large rooms - it all depends on the number of family members.
Then there will be enough space on the ground floor for a large kitchen, a spacious living room, and a guest room. If necessary, you can equip additional rooms, which may include:
- mini gym;
- billiard room.
Sometimes some people find a room for a small sauna right in the house.
For such a house, you can choose absolutely any style. The main thing is that all the premises are designed in one direction, and the exterior decoration of the house also corresponds to the general idea. The same can be said about the local area.
Minimalism. If there are no children in the house, then this option will be good. A minimum of things, perfect order in everything, black and white with the inclusion of gray. You can choose bright accents according to your taste. For example, in a living room with gray walls and a white ceiling, a blue or red sofa can be a bright touch. Decor in this style is discouraged.
Classical. With this option, there will be enough beautiful curtains, modern beautiful furniture, a large chandelier that gives a lot of light in the evening. Additional lights will come in handy. Shades should also be selected carefully, most often beige tones should be preferred, using additional shades for accents.
Japanese. A very interesting style if you put it into practice correctly. Rattan, bamboo in decoration are welcome. Low tables, sofas will come in handy, as well as stylish lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Screens for zoning a large area will successfully divide the space into zones. Patterns in the form of dragons, sakura on some surfaces will serve as an additional decor. Live plants are also welcome.
Ecostyle. It implies the use of natural materials, it can make the room very original. Stone and wood surfaces will be relevant, they go well with each other. Better to make an accent wall. A surface decorated with live plants looks good. Interesting handicrafts made from natural materials will be appropriate here.
Provence. Pleasant for many style and simple in execution. Wicker or wood carved furniture, photographs and framed landscapes will decorate the room.
In addition to this, light curtains in delicate shades are suitable on the windows, floral prints are welcome, as are the fresh flowers themselves as a decor.
Do not forget about the local area. If minimalism is chosen, then a fireplace on the terrace of a modern look, strict paths and a minimum of plantings are suitable. When arranging a house in the Provence style, you can give free rein to imagination and break bright flower beds or concentrate on roses. Ecostyle will be decorated with a wooden gazebo, a small stream, green spaces, alpine slides.
