When our home and budget is small, we must find creative ways to extend the place. We can either continue it with one more room or even a little patio. There are many inspiring ideas that you can find on Homify. In this article, we have collected projects from the experts registered on our platform, where they show us terraces, extra rooms or incredible solutions that manage to create a more significant environment.

1. Closed terrace

First of all, you can build a small terrace which is closed with wood and glass.

2. Back porch

Creating a porch on the back facade is also a fabulous ideal. You can even place some furniture and curtains.

3. Glass and metal

4. Pergola

Installing a pergola in the yard is also worth a shot.

5. Expand space
