It is about having our own space to disconnect without leaving the house.
We bring you the latest ideas and trends to enclose your porch in a rustic style with lots of charm. Take note!
Ideas for enclosing a terrace with wood
When we think about enclosing a terrace, the first thing that comes to mind is wood. Wood is a very elegant and rustic material that offers a distinctive touch to our home, and it also allows us to choose the type of opening we want. For example, if we want a lot of sunlight to enter we can incorporate a pergola that is not completely closed and that leaves space between the wooden beams so that the light penetrates the entire terrace, if on the other hand you prefer a deeper enclosure you only have to eliminate the space between the beams, and leave your terrace with a more secluded appearance.
In addition, if we make it with solid wood, we will prevent the cold from taking over our terrace at the same time that we can enjoy the rays of sunshine in the morning with a warm coffee. If your house follows a rustic or classic line, wood is undoubtedly the ideal choice.
Enclosed glass porches
One of the most common and visually attractive enclosures for porches or terraces is the glass enclosure, this allows all the daylight to enter but isolating the terrace from both weather conditions and noise, creating a very natural environment but adapted to us at the same time. Unlike what happens with wood, this type of enclosures do not follow a rustic style, but rather opt for a sophisticated and elegant style.
The glass enclosures remind us of the glass palace in Madrid, a very famous architectural work visited by thousands of tourists.
Aluminium enclosed porches
We also have the option of enclosing our porch or terrace with aluminium, this material is very robust so it will make a hermetic seal and isolation with the outside. This type of enclosure is ideal if we live in places with more extreme environmental factors such as strong winds, hard hail or heavy snow.
To maintain peace of mind that the material will withstand extreme conditions aluminium is a fantastic option, although visually it is less attractive than a wooden or glass porch enclosure.
