TRENDS IN TERRACE DECORATION

Outdoor space is more important than ever and plays an even greater role in how we enjoy our home. More and more people are looking for a more homey feel and an informal ambiance. Here are some of the hottest trends in outdoor deck decorating: 

1.- COMFORTABLE SPACES FOR ALL

Create a spacious, beautiful and functional living room, including a living room sofa that is easy to transform into a sofa bed. Creating multifunctional and comfortable spaces for everyone in the family is a growing trend. Increasingly, and derived from the pandemic, we seek in these outdoor spaces the outdoor shelter we need so much. 

Therefore, our garden or terrace will become a living space full of amenities and different areas adapted to our needs and daily activities. It will be as important to create a chill out type space in which to relax, as it will be to leave a small play area or even a space reserved for family meals.

2.- TERRACE FURNITURE, THE BASICS

Complement the space with dining chairs, loungers and coffee tables. A truly unique design with a lot of comfort is the latest trend in outdoor terrace decoration. 

In order to consider an outdoor area ‘livable’ it is necessary to have a good table on the terrace of our home. On this basis, it will be a matter of knowing how to distribute and decorate the space around it. It will be enough to place some terrace tables and armchairs, depending on the size of our exteriors.

If we focus on the outdoor materials that we should choose, there is no decalogue that says which are the best. But there are some recommendations as to how they should be. For small spaces, for example, opting for folding and stackable furniture will help us to gain space. 

Finally, remember that, even if we have a large terrace, another perfect quality for outdoor furniture is that it should not weigh too much. 

3.- EXTERIOR DECORATION WITH ELEGANCE AND OWN STYLE

The ideal for a terrace is to choose a classic design, which enhances the atmosphere of the dining room. It is a clear trend to create houses with outdoor terraces, but closed in some way, or with the option of closure.

One of the best options is to use a glass enclosure, where doors and windows can be placed, which can be opened and closed according to the needs. These closures are embedded in stainless steel structures, resistant to different weather conditions. In this way, it is possible to create the most useful outdoor terrace decoration for the whole year. 

4.- COMFORTABLE SEATING AND SEATING CAPACITY

Another trend in outdoor terrace decoration for this 2022 is to complement the terrace furniture with a series of stools, bar chairs, lounge chairs and desk chairs. A modern and rigorous look, with which you will gain in comfort. 

Think about creating the perfect place to unwind. To do this, you can place rest furniture that is easy to move, such as a bean bag or puff. 

5.- INCLUDES A FIRE ELEMENT

Fireplaces or barbecues that complete the outdoor experience are a fundamental element in modern deck design. Whenever you can, try to install your fire in the patio or garden without disturbing your neighbors. For example, if your outdoor area or terrace connects directly with another balcony, it will not be a good idea to buy a barbecue, since you could dirty the neighboring house. 

It is interesting to know your priorities when placing a barbecue on your outdoor terrace. Before making the final design, decide where you are going to place it, how big it will be, if it will be lit with wood or charcoal and even how it will be cleaned and maintained. 

6.- THE IMPORTANCE OF OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Another of the basic elements to take into account, before thinking about other complements, are the outdoor lamps. The lighting of terraces is a whole world, as you may have seen. In fact, it will be the choice of good lighting that will make your terrace shine in the evening evenings with friends and family. Using pendant and adjustable lamps, as well as different ambient lights, will give us the opportunity to have the table well lit and in a natural way.

7.- SOFT, PLEASANT, COZY ACCESSORIES

The current trend is to achieve infinite softness. To do this, consider the option of choosing decorative elements and accessories really comfortable for small spaces, seeking comfort and integration with the elements of the exterior. The recommendation is to have textures that invite you to sit and enjoy time outdoors.

8.- NATURAL STYLE: THE LATEST TREND FOR TERRACES

Opt for furniture and accessories of natural origin, sustainable and handcrafted. These will turn the decoration of outdoor terraces into comfortable and relaxing spaces. 

Outdoor furniture made of solid wood or natural fibers offer ample resistance to sun, water and any other inclement weather. Furniture and decorative accessories that, in most cases, will be combined with cheerful colors and pastel shades. 

In addition to being made from natural materials, many of these furnishings have all the properties to turn your garden into a haven this summer. This summer, lattice and bamboo furniture will flood the decoration of charming gardens and terraces. In fact, any furniture and all the organic textiles you choose can be customized with different textures, as well as with the colors and finishes that best match the style of your patio or garden and the rest of the interior decorations of your home.

9.- IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW SMALL YOUR TERRACE IS, BUT HOW IT IS DECORATED

Forget about the square meters of your terrace and think about decorating the space in favor of your needs and tastes. Choosing well the furniture and complements of your outdoor space, you can achieve a splendid decoration. 

Take advantage of every nook and cranny to place the ornaments and complements that are most practical for you. We recommend you not to lose sight of the aesthetics of the chosen elements, without putting beauty before the functionality of a piece of furniture. For example, even if you like a table model, do not choose it if it is too bulky and heavy to move. 

If you have a small terrace, another option would be to opt for folding and multifunctional furniture. Taking advantage of the walls to place decorations with plants or vertical gardens is also a very good decorative choice. But, what you should certainly not forget, is to opt for neutral and light colors to contribute to a greater sense of space and amplitude in your outdoor terrace. 

10.- PROTECT YOURSELF WITH BIOCLIMATIC AWNINGS AND CANOPIES

Canopies and bioclimatic awnings become the allies to protect from the sun and summer rains. Do not forget to add a mobile cover in your garden to get an outdoor space to measure, you can take advantage even in less hot days. 

Any of these opening elements through pivoting aluminum slats, fully automated, become a suitable solution to create any shaded area. In addition, its manufacturing material protects us from UV rays, but also works as a terrace umbrella suitable to protect us from the rain.
