Make the most of your outdoor spaces

Balconies, Terraces and Gardens

There are endless possibilities for furnishing these spaces in a functional and cosy way. Here are some tips on how to make the most of them:

Consider the available space

First of all, take some time to evaluate the dimensions. If you have a small balcony, you could opt for compact and foldable - space-saving - furniture. If you have a larger terrace, you might instead consider adding potted plants or even a small dining table. With a spacious garden, you'll definitely have more freedom to play with furniture sizes and plant varieties. You might consider adding elements such as a lounge area with comfortable sofas and armchairs, an outdoor dining area with a table and chairs, or even a play area for children or for various outdoor activities, such as sports.

Add the lighting

The right lighting can completely transform the atmosphere of your outdoor spaces. In addition to classic lanterns, candles, or LED lights, there are other creative options to consider. You could opt for eco-friendly lighting with solar-powered garden lights. These charge up during the day via the sun's rays and switch on automatically at dusk, gently illuminating your garden without the need for cables or electrical outlets. Many people like recessed spotlights that can be strategically placed in the ground to highlight particular architectural elements or plants, creating striking light effects.

Play with textures and colours

A careful selection of textures and colours can truly enhance the comfort and appeal of your outdoor space. For a touch of comfort, consider adding soft outdoor rugs, perhaps with interesting textures or colours that harmonise with your surroundings. Lightweight curtains will not only add a touch of elegance, but also offer some privacy and protection from the sun's rays. Experiment with combinations of textures and colours to create a unique and personal setting that reflects your style and personality.

With a bit of creativity, you can transform your balconies, terraces, and small gardens into real urban retreats, where you can enjoy moments of relaxation and conviviality amidst the vibrant atmosphere of the city.
