Summers bring in the chance to spend some time outdoors and enjoy a good time with your family and friends. Not everyone has the luxury of owning a sprawling green space, but even if you have a small terrace or balcony, you can easily convert it into a dreamy haven. Work on small, finer details and you can spruce up your terrace in no time. Without further ado, let’s check out how you can revamp your terrace without spending a fortune through these amazing terrace decor ideas.
Best Terrace Decor Ideas
Upgrade your terrace by using some of these tips and tricks.
- Go full colour
- Use hanging flower pots
- Illuminate the space
- Add a wooden pergola
- Choose the best terrace furniture
- DIY rug for your terrace
Let’s discuss these in detail.
Go full colour
Change the seating covers of your terrace furniture. Add bold and vibrant colours, maybe a hand crocheted throw or changing the pillow covers of your chairs would do the trick. Place a colourful rug in the centre or you can also go with decorative hand painted garden tyres. Sow some seeds of the flowers you like and hang these painted tyres from your terrace railing. This will put up a good show and enhance the curb appeal of your house as well.
Create a terrace garden
Plants add freshness and life to an otherwise boring setting. It also creates an illusion of space and makes a small space seem larger. You have to be wise when choosing the plants for your customized green space. Figure out how much time and energy you can dedicate to your terrace garden.
Place hardy plants like euphorbia, ficus or cactus which do not ask much maintenance. You also don’t need to water them much. If you are daring and creative, you can also grow a small vegetable patch or a herb garden in your terrace from where you can easily pluck the herbs you want as and when needed.
If you like flowers much, then go for petunia, phlox, asters and zinnias for a blooming flower garden. You can also run a creeper on the terrace railing.
Illuminate the space
Light some bulbs, led lamps or purchase a string of led lights and illuminate the terrace as you like. If you want a fairytale look to your terrace garden, then add some show lights around the flower pots and a string of led lights through the railing to perfectly illuminate the space.
Solar lights and high beam lights from the roof of the terrace also create a stunning ambience. You don’t need to let all the lights function, save the string of led lights and other show lights for some special occasions. Your kids will have a memorable birthday party up on the terrace.
Add a wooden pergola
There are some terrace designs that offer more privacy and shade from the scorching sun rays during the summer months. A wooden structure, no doubt, adds elegance and value to the building. A wooden pergola overhead can provide the necessary shade your terrace needs and at the same time create an elegant terrace design. Wood and stone are durable elements for any outdoor setting. You can also add some rock garden in a small corner in the terrace, which your kids would love!
Choose the best terrace furniture
You need to choose the right furniture for your terrace. The usual plastic chair and table set can go well, but if you are creative, you can create cut out log pieces as terrace garden seats. Take a stool and place a large piece of marble top left off from your recent construction project. This can be used as a nice coffee table.
You can also make terrace garden chairs made out of old tyres. Choose furniture having an umbrella top to act as a shade.
DIY rug for your terrace
A rug not only adds a bit of cosiness to your outdoor setup, but it also helps bring everything together. If your terrace furniture is in grey and white, then adding a colourful DIY rug can breathe life into the surroundings. You can also create a corner by placing some marble chips and a small fountain made out of terracotta pots.
The sound of gushing water, the flower pots hanging from the railing and your own handmade rug under the coffee table give your terrace a comfortable ambience that you would love. Invite your friends and throw a bbq party on the terrace or have a movie night snuggled up together – the choice is yours – how you want to make the moments memorable and long lasting.
