Living in an apartment with a private terrace
Apartment with a private terrace
Having a terrace or balcony at home is a huge relief. Having an outdoor space is always a plus. However, there are times when these large terraces are limited to smaller spaces, such as small balconies, which are also not located in common areas. Today we will talk about bedrooms with a terrace or balcony. Below we will show you the advantages offered by balconies or terraces in bedrooms.
Bedrooms with terrace or balcony: waking up with light
Many people love them for many reasons, bedrooms with terraces allow us, among other things, to be connected with the outside since dawn. Therefore, many examples of these bedrooms have the bed facing those balconies and terraces, that is, to the outside.
While it is true that light may seem a problem, there are different solutions to regulate the entry of light into a room. For example, we could put a mechanical blind that could be opened and closed from the bed, or perhaps an opaque blind. As soon as we wake up, we could comfortably raise the blinds and enjoy the natural light.
Light is precisely another of the advantages of bedrooms with a terrace. Yes, it is true that there are poorly lit areas, but a balcony or terrace in the bedroom will always provide us with much more light than a simple window.
Balconies and terraces for relaxing
A large terrace or balcony in the bedroom can give us an extra place to relax. Although the truth is that it does not matter if it is small. If we can put a small table for two and a couple of stools, we will have the perfect space to have breakfast while listening to the sound of the sea. For this, it is always good to use plants, to connect much better with nature.
Integration of the terrace into the bedroom
When it comes to integrating the terrace into the bedroom, we can do it in a more or less obvious way. Some people prefer to place normal windows and doors, thus separating very well the two environments. On the other hand, it is not a bad idea to make a total integration, placing glass curtains or enclosures that can minimize the divisions, a way to put the terrace completely in the bedroom. Obviously, this will also depend a lot on what we have outside.
Insulation for balconies and terraces
Finally, a small recommendation. It is very good to have a bedroom and terrace together. However, we must always keep in mind that the outside can be cold in winter or very hot in summer. If we have extreme caution in windows and doors anywhere in the house, in the bedroom has to be much greater, because it is the place where we rest every night. Always invest in windows and terrace doors that soundproof and insulate us from the cold or heat all year round.
A space for you
If you place a table and some chairs (if you don’t have much space they can be folded) you will have a great place to have breakfast, read, work… or just relax.
But you can include other different elements in your bedroom terrace.
Gibraltar enjoys a Mediterranean climate, although it is slightly cooler in summer than some Spanish cities on its southern coast. However, warm summers and very mild winters can be expected.
The average annual temperature in Gibraltar is 20° and the average annual rainfall is 343 mm.
This allows you to enjoy your bedroom terrace practically all year round.
