Bringing coziness to your balcony or terrace

Summer is approaching in the northern hemisphere, and maybe you are already starting to enjoy yourself outside in your garden, terrace, or balcony. It is your favorite place for the summer holidays, where you rest, read a good book, has a glass of wine, makes a grill, and a thousand other things. But are you sure that your terrace or balcony is ready, comfortable, and above all, beautiful to welcome you and your guests? Here I bring some tips to make this area the ideal place for your summer days and why not for the rest of the year.

1.-By having a small terrace, always what you have to achieve is that it is comfortable. In this way, when placing some furniture, I recommend that everything is placed next to the wall or corner for better circulation.

2.-All furniture or decorative accessories must be resistant to the outside. In that case, it does not need much maintenance. But enough with adequate cleaning and protection against the chance of rain or direct sunlight, if required. The materials most used are rattan (natural or synthetic), aluminum, recycled pallets, teak wood, plastic, or work on site.

3.-The plants you choose must be evident for the outdoor and better if they are for summer, autumn, and winter seasons. So, their leaves will change color and give you a beautiful show on your terrace or balcony.

4.-You can take advantage of the wall and ceiling of your balcony or terrace by placing your plants there. Those plants for shade will be placed at the bottom so that they will last much longer.

5.- Large or tall plants make your terrace or balcony look more elegant and large.

6.-The plants that have flowers can be placed in shaded areas and this corner will look more illuminated.

7.-If you have a terrace and want to create a more dynamic area, you can work with the floor level. In addition, you can play with the heights of plants and furniture.

8.-Lighting is essential for any part of our house, and the terrace or balcony is no exception. From ground lighting spots to hanging lamps. Remember to choose warm lights or candles so that you will add that “hygge” touch 🙂
