Ten keys to a 10/10 terrace

'The one with a terrace has a treasure'. However, refurbishing this part of the house before the arrival of good weather may not be so easy. By following these simple tips, you can be sure to enjoy that space you like right away, where you will be able to eat outdoors or lie back in the sun.

1. Plan the layout according to the available space. Take into account the dimensions of your terrace and prioritise them. If it measures less than 20 sqm, do not try to turn it into a dining room, a solarium, or a living room as it will end up looking like a storage room.

2. Select the right furniture. The furniture should provide comfort and functionality and also have style. Always choose pieces that are weather resistant and don't take up too much space. Natural wood and PVC are ideal for the terrace. 

3. Create a shaded area. Sunbathing on the terrace is nice from time to time, but you will also need a shaded area. Awnings and parasols are the best choices.

4. Potted plants. Potted plants will unify the space as well as allow you to place several close together. They offer a spectacular aesthetic and will help you save space.

5. Do not abuse plants. Plants help add a touch of colour and naturalness to any terrace. However, you always have to choose them in moderation in order not to make the space look like a jungle.
