Do not be fooled by bad weather, in less than you expect the sun will shine and you will want to have your perfect terrace to enjoy the summer with family and friends. That is why, right now, is the ideal time to start working on decorating those bare square meters.
Whether you have a small balcony, a large garden or a patio in good condition, you have to get down to work a couple of months before the next barbecue season so you don’t get caught by the bull.
Outdoor meals are always a trend and we have more and more multifunctional furniture options to make this possible without involving too much work and investment.
Bet on transformer furniture
The most innovative are the furniture that serves several things: stools that also serve as a refrigerator to keep drinks cold, parasols that illuminate at night or flowerpots that have a space to store, are the ideal solution to the limitations of space that characterize city terraces.
The same thing happens with the main grill brands, thinking about the needs and demands of customers, they have developed models that in addition to the traditional functions can smoke, grill and bake at the same time.
When you decide to buy barbecue for your summer plans, have all the modern and functional options that the market currently offers before deciding on the traditional charcoal that annoys the neighbor so much.
Flowers outside, vegetables inside
The terraces are also becoming a practical space for cultivation work. The “healthy” current takes over the city and there is no one left who has not tried to plant a pesticide-free tomato or leek on their balcony.
The flowers are not carried so much anymore, the most “in” are the vegetables. The latest fashion is lettuce or chives harvested in urban gardens. If you use a wall of your internal patio, balcony or terrace for a simple vertical organic garden, you will be adding style and utility to your outdoor spaces.
Just imagine being able to turn on the barbecue and reach out to pick up a pepper and put it to roast, it really is a dream come true. But beyond being fashionable, an orchard in the garden makes a great contribution to caring for the environment because you avoid the consumption of cardboard and plastic from packaging.
Another less edible option is the forest look, this trend is gaining ground, pun intended. The ferns, mosses, anemones and herbs combined almost to the level of saturating the spaces achieve evocative and tropical landscapes so that you forget that you are still in the city.
Do not leave out the color and the light
We also want to offer you ideas regarding colors and designs that will be used in this spring-summer 2018 season. The vibrant colors are commanding, orange tones, a variety of purple, electric blue or pink will make an excellent contrast with green and earth colors.
It is easy to include them in small decorative details such as a vase or a flowerpot. You can also include these groundbreaking colors in textile elements such as a cushion or a tablecloth or simply in some pieces of kitchenware.
To close with a flourish, think about lighting, summer gatherings are so enjoyable that they tend to extend beyond sunset. That natural light goes away is not reason enough for the party to end. On the contrary, get ahead of this fact: give your space a suggestive and varied lighting to achieve an intimate and cozy look.
It does not have to involve an immense cost of electricity, buying low intensity light bulbs or simply having candles in strategic areas of your terrace will be enough to enjoy the warm summer nights outdoors.
