Furniture, textiles, plants, rattan chairs and festoon lighting are just some ideas to get you started, and will all add to the décor of this space.
With good weather on the horizon, comes the urge to spend hours on a terrace, patio or deck, dining al fresco with family and friends. The materials you use on the floors and walls, décor and your chosen furniture will all play an important role in how you use the space.
Next we'll look at some tips for your terrace décor so you can make the most of the space you have.

Designing your terrace is much more than putting some chairs and a table on a patio, it's about combining your furniture harmoniously with the setting. Depending on the proportions of your space, and how you want to use each zone (a dining area, lounge and/or chill-out area) you'll need to think about the materials you want to use for paving, your colour scheme (we recommend going for beige, brown, white or sky blue) and what furniture you want to have on your terrace.
And now for the practicalities:

#01. Recommended flooring for terraces
We recommend installing anti-slip, ceramic floor tiles to keep your space stylish and safe
As well as making the space safer, they'll make it easier to clean and maintain. Especially in the event of extreme temperatures or rain.
Porcelanosa's collections, such as PAR-KER® ceramic parquet and cement inspired Premium large format tiles (HIGHKER®), can be used to create uninterrupted designs and add a sense of breadth between zones. We recommend using Butech adhesives for optimum placement.
# 02. Cool terrace furniture
Again, this depends on the size of your terrace. You might want to go for a large wood or aluminium table with chairs, a smaller table with two armchairs, or bamboo or white upholstered sofas.
If you're looking for more of a boho feel, you could combine floor-level sofas or armchairs with vivid colours like red, yellow or green.
If you're thinking a more Mediterranean style, the ideal terrace furniture to go for would be wicker with ethnic print cushions or jute footstools.
