Some people opt to transition their balconies or terraces into functional dining areas. For instance, you can install a covered table for serving breakfast or brunch. Residents can dine outside on warm, sunny days while watching the sun come up. There are even rolling bars that you can put out here for making mimosas and other libations outdoors.
Determine whether or not you want this space to have any special features for relaxation or food preparation. Outdoor kitchens are a major trend in backyard designs, but they can also be added to elevated and well-supported structures like balconies or terraces. Some people even install hot tubs or small wading pools depending upon their balcony sizes and their household needs. These are features that are cheaper and easier to add in at the start of construction then they are after building is done.
Many people assume that a balcony is always an inexpensive and smart way to expand. However, the floor system, structural framing, riser framing, handrails and multiple stairways are an additional expense not incurred when seating on the main level. The primary problem with balcony seating, however, is often not related to construction costs. Many people complain of feeling like spectators when sitting in a balcony, and balconies often do not provide good visibility of, or easy access to, the altar area. Furthermore, it′s simply difficult to see someone′s face beyond about 65 feet. Since the sight-line is downward, balcony handrails and the person in the row ahead often block the view as well. Problems related to the seats under the balcony may include columns, low ceilings and poor sound or lighting.
Take some time to calculate your budget for this addition while accounting for any special features that you wish to include. It may be best to complete this project in small increments that entail modest and manageable payments. This way, you can add new feature in whenever additional funding becomes available. This can be an all-at-once project or a gradual, progressive and affordable one.
