How to prepare your terrace for the summer

With the arrival of summer, a home's terrace becomes the absolute protagonist. It is a real pleasure to spend many hours outdoors without leaving the comfort of your own home.

After a cold and unpleasant winter, little or no time has been spent in the terrace. But you should come up with a cleaning plan in order to enjoy your outdoor space once again.

Engel & Völkers Real Estate Madrid will give you some ideas on how to clean and decorate your terrace:

Clean upc

The first is to clean and remove soil stains. Make sure you also clean the sanded and painted railings as well as the metal furniture.
Clean and prepare the wooden furniture, blinds, etc. Paint or clean the walls. Clean chair covers, awnings, umbrellas, cushions ... In short, every piece of material you have must be cleaned.

Lighting

If you want to enjoy the terrace at any time of the day it is essential to install lights.. Natural lighting should be the ideal complement to artificial light. A great choice would be candles, torches, solar lamps, lanterns, etc., that will help you create different environments in the same space.

Fabrics

You need to choose quality fabrics to complement outdoor furniture: cushions, mats, umbrellas, awnings ... Keep in mind that these fabrics should withstand sun, heat, or even summer rain. For this reason the materials must be weather resistant.

Light colours have always been synonymous with amplitude. When combined with brightly coloured cushions, sofa covers, umbrellas ... they will offer much joy to the terrace.

Furniture

Instead of repairing the metal, wood or plastic furniture, you can buy new ones. In the market there are furniture of all styles (classic, modern, design, etc). A good choice, if the balcony is small, is folding furniture, that way you can remove it any time and put it back as needed. If space allows, you can put sofas, chairs, tables, etc.

If you are a handyman, you can build your own furniture with pallets. This will be a fun, economical and original choice.

Plants

Plants of all kinds are known to bring a pleasant feeling of freshness. You can choose from flowering plants or green leafy plants. You have to choose them well and take care of them daily. You can hang the pots from the ceiling, clay amphoras, etc.

Small details

Small details make all the difference, and are as important as anything else. Tablecloths, napkins, tableware, coloured candles, baskets, vases, ... barbecue will complete your terrace.
