The arrival of the good weather is getting closer and closer and we are at the ideal time to start preparing our home for this time of year. Cleaning the pool, preparing the plants for the rising temperatures and creating a perfect chill out space on your terrace are some of the trends to take into account this season.

Whether it’s a garden or a chill out terrace, any outdoor space is perfect for creating a corner where you can disconnect, alone or in company, and enjoy the good weather.

Garden furniture: essential for your chill out terrace

Among the key pieces of any chill out area on a terrace is the furniture chosen to decorate it. Generally, low furniture is used, combining several comfortable seats with a central table.

Current trends base this decoration on the use of recycled elements, such as pallets. These, with minimal restoration, can be used as comfortable sofas and coffee tables. For the former, simply place a few cushions on the bottom and front to create a soft place to sit, while the table can be created simply by placing a piece of glass on top of a pair of stacked pallets.

It is essential to have something to protect from the sun. If your terrace does not have an awning, you can opt for a pergola or a parasol, depending on the space available.

And to complete the decoration, since it is a space that is intended to be the most welcoming and natural, nothing better than plants. It should be noted that to choose correctly, you must take into account the type of climate in which your home is located, since not all plants fit perfectly in all spaces.
