Maybe you have a terrace at home, but you do not know how to take advantage of it now that the good weather has started. With these ideas on outdoor decoration, furniture or lighting, you will have your terrace ready in a jiffy and you will be the envy of all your friends.
Adapt to space
First of all, be aware of the size of the place you’re going to decorate, it does not matter if it’s a small balcony or a large garden with a pool, the most important thing is to adapt to it. Needless to say, it is not necessary to use all the elements that we will recommend below, only those that best fit with your terrace.
Having plants on the terrace is a good way to be closer to nature and fit perfectly with the environment that a place like this should have. Besides as decoration objects, they can also be used as natural separation of spaces if the garden is very large.
Use wooden furniture
In this type of environment, wood is the ideal material, although it must be one that is prepared to stand in the open. You can also use special varnishes designed to protect furniture. In the event that you do not want to use wood, there are currently other materials based on resin that mimic it, without the need for special maintenance.
Create zones with shadow
Although the sun is welcome, it is not advisable to be exposed during all the time, so it is important that there are shaded areas to take shelter whenever we want. This can be easily achieved with umbrellas, pergolas or awnings. Find an option that fits well with the rest of the elements and mimics the environment.
Think about the lighting
At night, the temperature goes down and it is the perfect time to go out and enjoy the outdoors. For this we need to have a good lighting on the terrace, which can create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere when the sun goes down. For this there are many options, such as lanterns or hanging garlands. Remember that light has to be indirect so as not to disturb those present. If you have a pool, lighting it at night has a very powerful, beautiful effect.
Perhaps this element is the least seen on terraces, possibly due to lack of space, but including a small fountain or curtain of water can make a difference. The effect that this causes is to achieve a really calm, refreshing and relaxing environment.
Leaving the terrace ready will take a little time, but the better we do it, the more pleasant the moments we will live there. With these tips you will have a lovely terrace in which to spend good times accompanied by family and friends during this summer, enjoying the good weather.
