Integrated Terraces: Connecting Indoors to Outdoors

One of the biggest trends in architecture and interior design for this season comes in the shape of integrated terraces and they are here to stay. 

The last year has seen a huge surge in the number of people thinking about home renovations. All the new designs and ideas that came to mind as we spent more time at home are now starting to come to life. The integrated terrace concept clearly stands out among these latest trends. Creating a connection with the outdoors and nature is the basic goal when choosing this type of design.

How to integrate the terrace into a home

Change the flooring. The most aesthetic, most long-lasting and simplest way to integrate a terrace into the home is by focusing on the floor. Countless options exist nowadays to suit all the various home design styles. Wood, marble, stone or cement are just a few of the options you will find in the best material for integrated terraces: ceramics.

Extruded tiles are the perfect material for designing an integrated terrace thanks to its incredible strength, durability, non-slip finishes and attractive designs

Whether the outdoor space is a garden or a patio, connecting it with the indoor space will provide a huge sense of space and that highly sought-after feeling of freedom for any modern renovation project. Another of the comfort boosts provided by an integrated terrace is the increase in light and warmth in winter, a significant factor when considering that it confirms the advantages to be gained from integrated terraces not only in summer but throughout the year.

Ideas for integrating a terrace

Living rooms with an integrated terrace

The most popular concept today is for the living room to be the space with a terrace or outdoor access point. This means that integrated terraces can be created simply and very practically by extending the design of the living room out onto the terrace via the flooring material. Different surface finishes are essential to meet the needs of each one of these spaces.

The C-1 finish is ideal for indoor surfaces while the C-3 finish (the strongest non-slip finish) is used for outdoor surfaces, guaranteeing personal safety when the floor is wet from the rain or water from the swimming pool.

Swimming pools and integrated terraces

Designs that integrate different spaces come into their own when they include a swimming pool in the project. Using the same material for the indoor flooring, the terrace, the pool surround and for lining the pool itself will raise the aesthetic quality of the space to the next level.

Besides surfaces finishes suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces, the Exagres catalogue also includes the special pieces necessary for integrating a swimming pool into your design, as well as the edge pieces for the various pool systems, such as skimmer or overflow.
