Leroy Merlin, the best selection in garden and outdoor

The exterior of the house is usually the last thing you think about when decorating. We don’t really like to deal with it because it’s not as easy as just picking out furniture. You have to account for a thousand tiny details such as weather, plants, pests, etc. The furniture that you choose must be able to withstand both the heat of summer and the chill of winter. 

Decorating the outside of your house also presents another challenge. There must be enough space out there to work with. You need to have enough room to turn those outdoor terraces and gardens into spaces where you can rest and relax. These can actually become your favorites spots in the home if done correctly.

In today’s post, we will share with you some tips to decorate your home’s exterior with items from Leroy Merlin. You will have no more excuses not to have a lovely garden, porch or terrace after you read this article. Get inspired by these ideas!

Curb appeal

It’s important that the front of the house gives off a good impression. It is the first thing people see, after all. You need to make it as beautiful and as organized as possible.

The first thing you need to do is choose a nice exterior color for your home. We recommend that you choose a color that is relatively close to the color of the houses nearest to you. However, going with a more striking color can help you stand out from the crowd. The range of colors that Luxens offers is a very good choice.

Although the Luxens brand is a bit pricey, it is guaranteed for 12 years. That means that it pays for itself over time.

One thing we can’t forget is to choose a good quality front door that is durable and will last a long time. We recommend that you choose one with glass accents to allow the passage of light into the entrance. Depending on the decor of the house, two good options are white classic metal and classic metallic white oak.

Add plants and flowers in beautiful pots to enhance the look of the front of your home. They add the perfect point of color. At Leroy Merlin, you can find many different kinds of plants. We recommend that you choose climbing plants or vines. With care and maintenance, they can become important accents for the outside of the house.

The perfect terrace

If you are fortunate enough to have a terrace or balcony, you can make the most of them during the spring and summer. The first thing you need to do is choose furniture that is weather resistant. At Leroy Merlin, there is a large selection of patio sets to match all tastes and needs.

Before making a final choice, however, you need to think about how you will use the furniture and your available space. Your decorative style also matters. Try to choose furniture that matches the furniture in the rest of the house.

The area should be divided into zones. First, you need a comfortable and pleasant place to eat. We recommend the Chamonix Grenoble model for this. This model is light and delicate with a glass table that takes advantage of the light.

For environments that are a bit more bohemian, a very good choice is the Soho Ceramic made of wood and metal. It will add a chic accent to your terrace.

If space allows, you can also include somewhere to relax. You can add daybeds, a sofa, cushions, and short tables. This can be the perfect “chill out” spot for when you want to relax.

Proper lighting from Leroy Merlin

For nighttime entertainment on the terrace or balcony, you need good lighting to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Your terrace should reflect your style and lighting plays a very important role in that. It’s essential to distribute the points of light correctly. Combining dim lights with more intense spotlights will light the space well without being too bright or too dim.

One idea for direct light is to install lighting in the walls and overhangs. They work best in these areas. They can also be placed in the ceiling just like in the walls. At Leroy Merlin, you can find the lighting that fits your needs and style. They have anything from the most classic lighting to more modern and avant-garde designs. 

One of our favorites is the LED Inspire Waldo wall lamp. Its design allows you to perfectly illuminate your area with its discreet design. Another one that we love is the Pinecrest model. It goes great with minimalist and simple styles of decor.

You can also use LEDs and lighted strips to outline entrances and walkways. They work very well in gardens that have a lot of space to walk around. The light is relatively dim and adds a decorative element. They are also easy to install and use very little energy.
