Best tips for decorating your terrace
The identity of a house also includes a connection with the exterior: terrace and garden. Of course, this is simple when you have a house with large terrace and vast garden, but when you have less space, you should choose those elements capable of highlight the identity of this area, yet without cluttering it. Here are some tips for turning your terrace into a relaxing space, ideal for outdoor parties with friends and family.
If you choose natural stone for terrace flooring, you should know that consistency provides a beautiful effect: if your kitchen / area connecting the house with terrace have natural stone flooring, you can choose the same material for exterior, yet with different finish. As a result, the look of the terrace will be like an extension of the interior, which makes a charming detail.
The flooring must be durable, since this is a high-traffic area and material is also required to resist in all kinds of weather.
If you are used to spend more time on the terrace during the warm season, you could set up a small kitchen: a stone oven (designed to work with charcoal and also wood), for preparing healthy food delights for your guests. You can choose from several types of ovens or barbecue grills and you can even add a worktop area (a natural stone kitchen countertop with sink), for a fully equipped outdoor kitchen.

When choosing the terrace colors it’s important to avoid cluttering. Because usually we don’t have enough space and if you want a spacious and relaxing look, we recommend using maximum three colours, but efficiently combined: no more than three pastel colors. For example, dark blue with yellow and white can lead to a marine theme and white combined with light blue and soft green are able to shape a playful space with a vintage touch.
Plants will always decorate your terrace in a beautiful way and you can choose fresh herbs for spicing up your meals with your friends, or exquisite flowers for an added color to your space, or you can plant shrubs and little trees. If you want to give the impression of a larger area, you can emphasize specific points of interest: for example, small pebbles and flower pots. Depending on your favorite look, you can choose grape wine for the terrace (a Parisian look terrace), herbs for a Mediterranean-inspired terrace or scented and coloured flowers such as hydrangeas or Camellias, for a terrace with rustic look. Moreover, if you are a gardening enthusiast, you can grow a few vegetables over the summer: a pot of tomatoes, a few pots with basil, thyme or parsley will convey a special atmosphere into your terrace.
