With an open space terrace, you can really make your hidden treasure outside. It’s hidden, because you have privacy on the roof. There is enough space to place furniture, such as a patio table and chairs, a swing chair, sunbeds and anything you want. 

Think about what you like to do in your free time and how you would like to spend time on your new terrace. This will help you organize and design a terrace.

Most penthouses have big or floor to ceiling windows, and you should look for it. Why? Because you will get a beautiful view and bring natural light inside. And what can be better than the natural light during the day? There is just one thing you might not like it, and that is maintaining those windows. A lot of glass for cleaning. 🙂 

When we talk about walls, a good choice for the penthouse is concrete walls. Choose the color carefully. Depending on your chosen style and taste, use a color wheel and pick the proper one.

If you prefer darker walls, choose a light color for the flooring. Make a contrast! Besides the walls, make a contrast with your furniture.

The first thing you should do is to think about the style you want to bring at home. Penthouses exude luxury. Place sectioned sofas to get a classy look. Wooden coffee tables and other polished wooden furniture are an excellent match. Rectangular and circular shapes can improve a classy look at home. Place them at the focal point of the room to get a wonderful view on different sides. You can do the same thing in your bedroom. Place the bed in the focal point of the room and make enough space from both sides.
