This site give you some good pictures with the differences: In summary, the main differences are that terraces are much bigger and usually not covered. Whereas a balcony is normally an extension of a room. Hint* If all that fits on it is a table from ikea, it's probably a balcony Hope that helps, Andrew

Hi Baron! A balcony is a small platform that is attached outside of the building. There is usually only one way to access the balcony. I think an easy way to remember this is the "Romeo and Juliet" balcony scene. A terrace is a larger elevated platform that can be next to the house or on the rooftop. I attached a link the further explains the differences between the two. I hope that helps!
