Increasingly, residents of large cities are trying to make their country houses, cottages as comfortable as possible, and to create such conditions in order to fully relax from the bustle of the city near nature among friends. Therefore, suburban verandas today are very popular. Their interior can be arranged in any stylistic direction, but it is better when the terrace is not only in harmony with the design of the entire dwelling, but also combined with the design of the landscape of the infield.
The design of the veranda inside is largely based on the placement of furniture and, of course, will depend on the area of the terrace itself. In fact, this is the second living room, which necessarily involves the presence of a sofa, a few chairs or chairs and a table. If the veranda is spacious enough, then in addition to the seating area, here you can organize a real fireplace and put a dining table.
As for furniture design, the most popular options are wooden or wicker objects with cozy soft pillows and mattresses. In the warmed room it is quite rational to use volume sofas, as at home.
Natural materials of summer terraces are easily combined with each other, which greatly facilitates the task of interior design from a stylistic point of view. So, in a wooden terrace the fireplace harmoniously looks, and even with a stone facing. This element will not only bring a special flavor to the interior, but will also warm the veranda in cold weather, and all household members will be able to fully enjoy the endless magic of the flame and the crackle of burning firewood.
To heat the veranda of a closed type, stoves are often used, which may well be the starting point in creating the design of the entire room. In this case, they are installed in the most visible place and only then, on the basis of the location of the stove, are they beaten up in the whole setting of the terrace.
Speaking about the decorative design of the veranda, perhaps the most predictable, but no less excellent option for giving are indoor plants. Considering that the terrace is always filled with sunlight, this is the most optimal place for flowers.
And now let’s look at a couple of beautiful and unusual design projects for the veranda to give.
Summer veranda in folk style
The main idea of the design project was the idea of folklore with hints of modernity and at the same time retro. Without humor, there was also no cost, but more on that later.
The starting point in creating the stylistic focus of the project was the passion of the hostess at home handicrafts. This tradition in this family is passed down from generation to generation. The cross-stitched canvases, woven carpets inspired the designer so much that it was decided to use, besides the main color of the embroidery, red also other colorful elements. Crossings on the veranda wall, along with an openwork pergola at the entrance, are like stitches on bright embroidery.
The interior of the veranda is not deprived of wicker elements: suspended rattan armchair, decorative baskets with red twigs, armchairs at the entrance.
But despite the rustic motifs, in general, the situation looks fresh and modern thanks to the bright funny shelving in the silhouette of a cow and a bar counter dividing the space.
Perfectly look against the design of such high pots, full of juicy apples with red barrels.
Of course, the central place in the interior of the veranda is the bar with integrated grill. Constructed from foam blocks, it successfully zones the space and serves as a full-fledged dining table, over which a spectacular fabric shade with a beautiful folk print is hung.
The back wall is made of glass blocks, hiding the room from prying eyes, but at the same time transparent enough to let the sunlight through.
Bright red crosshairs from the beams harmoniously complement exactly the same crosshairs on the backs of the chairs, supporting the general theme of needlework.
Soft comfortable sofa covered with textiles with a large pattern in the style of the 70s. A decorative panel located above the sofa, which, by the way, can also be used as a coffee table, is decorated with four different types of solar ornaments.
On the side of the bar counter you can see a small niche that was beautifully decorated with a luxurious samovar. A funny end of the colorful excitement was a funny rack near the wall in the form of a cow, not only supporting the rustic atmosphere, but also keeping a lot of small things in it.
Scottish motifs in the design of the veranda
For the owners of this veranda, the designers focused on a light loft, the addition of which was the Scottish elements that are found everywhere. The space is divided into two parts without clearly marked zoning: the territory with a bar counter gradually flows into a corner with a cozy fireplace.
Three walls of the room are protected by moisture resistant OSB, and the fourth one is decorated with a beautiful decoration made of artificial stone, reminiscent of the architecture of Scotland, which conquered the owners during the travels.
The highlight of the interior of the veranda is a wooden, luxurious panel with an original pattern, which is composed of five different types of wood.
The bar counter of the wooden tabletop and wrought base is assembled by hand and masterfully complemented by stylish chairs. For storage, designers offered two unusual solutions: built-in lockers, fitted with doors in the form of blinds, and open shelves under the bench, where you can put spacious baskets for the necessary details.
Attracts attention and modern electric fire on the wall. Creating the effect of a living flame, it fills the house with a cozy and warm atmosphere. The design has a steam generator on an ultrasonic basis, which not only simulates smoke, but also favorably illuminates steam clubs with halogen bulbs with a light filter. The wall with a fireplace is decorated with elegant metal thistles symmetrically located on both sides of it.
Turning lights evenly distribute the light throughout the veranda, and a chandelier made of aluminum pipes with notches sets the optical game – the reflection of light in the metal looks very impressive.
