How To: Style Your Terrace

Patio Awning

Whilst terraces were once seen as areas to merely sweep, plant and occasionally weed, they're rapidly becoming regarded as 'outdoor' rooms and essentially an addition to our existing properties. Make the most of your space this Summer with our five styling tips which are sure to add some substance to your space. 

1. Strive For Symmetry:

Symmetrical interiors are commonly regarded as more restful and peaceful than a cluttered, disorganised area, and the same applies to our outside spaces. For example, an orderly line of matching planters looks both chic and harmonious along with adding an architectural element to your terrace.

2. Collect Cushions:

By enhancing comfort, adding pattern and injecting all-important colour, cushions are a no-brainer for creating a relaxed and modern alfresco feel. For extra durability, opt for outdoor cushions which will stand the test of time providing they're stored carefully during the colder months. 

3. Convey Colour:

A little colour goes a long way, and none more so than when teamed with luscious greenery. For example, a set of table and chairs painted in a happy hue, such as yellow or orange, is a great way to add cheer to your garden party regardless of whether the sun makes an appearance.

4. Beautify Bricks

If you're bored of your bricks, why not add a few plant holders for an attractive feature wall in an instant? Not only are they super quick to install, by choosing hardy geraniums or bedding plants they won't require too much maintenance either. 

5. Add An Awning:

An awning offers a host of benefits, from the practical function of sheltering your eating area to giving your terrace a sense of formality. The sleek finish of an awning frame and fabric along with carefully-chosen patio furniture creates a cohesive feel which is sure to be the envy of all your friends and family!
