If you really don't know what terrace or balcony means, you might end up having a problem in differentiating the two structures. Both terrace and balcony can be built together with a building for the desired purpose. Although, the two structures look similar, but there are some differences between them. Terrace is simply a structure that extends outwards from a building. And it is attached to a building because of many reasons. Terraces are built with buildings so that there can be a place outside the main building to relax, rest, have fun with friends and family. Terraces are not always attached to buildings; you can have them standing alone within a compound.

Balcony, on the other hand, is an extension of a building, which is usually attached to the side of a building. The extension might be from a kitchen or other parts of the building. As an owner of a building, you can stand at the balcony and be having a view of a section of the building, you can also rest at the balcony. Terraces are most times constructed bigger than balconies.
