A round table

The chairs are as important as the table; it is the set, actually. Don't you find those sets of chairs and tables of Parisian cafes? Get inspired by them and bet on chairs with notes of color that provide personality to the space.

Do not place more than two chairs around the table or the terrace will seem crowded. If you need seats for guests, you can always add a small bench to the terrace that allows more people to sit in less space or take chairs inside your home.

Vegetable fiber furniture and accessories

The furniture of vegetable fibers or those synthetic that imitate them They bring a lot of warmth and lightness to the decoration of small terraces, that's why they are so popular in these. Chairs are always a great addition, although if you prefer metallic and colored chairs, you can always resort to accessories to incorporate these materials.

Vegetable fiber baskets can be used as storage, but they also become beautiful pot covers. Nor will it be difficult for you to find lanterns in this material and even small rugs to warm those spaces protected from the elements.

a green corner

There is nothing that gives a terrace more charm and freshness than a green corner. And you don't need too many plants for it, sometimes it's enough to place three (we go back to the rule of three) in the right place, the one that suits you. provides greater privacy and/or protects you from the sun.

Do you need ideas to create a green corner? Start by choosing a tall floor and place it in a tall pot, made of terracotta or ceramic. Place it near a corner and forming a triangle, in front of it, place two other pots with plants of different heights. You already have it!

Another way to create a green corner is taking advantage of one of the walls from the terrace. Place in this some shelves at a sufficient height so as not to be annoying and on these, some plants. This way will save you a lot of space on the terrace by leaving the floor clear.

Blue tones are always welcome in these spaces. Our Mediterranean heritage encourages us to use them frequently unconsciously. Do you prefer warmer colors? Reds, oranges and ocher sIt's a great choice in that case. And both one and the other work very well with pinks.

When choosing textiles for terrace decoration, always keep in mind that these are very exposed. Always choose materials resistant to moisture and UV rays and also washable. It is very important that you can wash them comfortably at home and that you do it with some regularity. And of course, that you collect them in winter to prevent moisture from deteriorating them.

warm lights

For the decoration of charming small terraces it is essential to pay attention to lighting. Appropriate lighting It will encourage you to use this corner at any time and will allow you to enjoy it more and better. Do not neglect it and once you have the scheme in your head of how you are going to furnish the terrace, provide the right light to each corner.

Lighting for a warm and welcoming atmosphere

In general, a small terrace does not require more than a garland of lights to be charming. A garland that can benefit from sunlight to work with the consequent savings. It may be enough in your day to day during the warm months to enjoy a few hours outside at night.

At Decoora, however, we advise you to combine these string lights with wall spotlights that intensify the light at certain points. They can be fixed or directional spotlights so that you can play with the imagination of the terrace and adapt it to your needs at all times. Warm or warm lights are our favorites to decorate these spaces, but it will depend on what use you are going to give it and your own taste in your choice.
