How Should you Decorate your Mini Terrace?

· October 30, 2018
Decorating your mini terrace does not have to be a huge challenge. Here we provide a couple of pieces of advice to ensure you can make the most of every inch of space and enjoy the beautiful weather.

When good weather arrives, there is nothing better than spending our summer evenings relaxing on our terraces or balconies. However, many homes only have small spaces, such as a mini terrace, which is not always easy to decorate.

Certain tricks can transform your small terrace into an inviting place. It can be somewhere you can while away the hours reading, enjoying the sunlight, or even sharing nibbles with friends. 

Small spaces are always a challenge to decorate. The best you can do in these circumstances is to take advantage of every corner.

While making the most of your space, you can also make it useful. In other words, you can adapt it to how you want to use it.

This article will explain how you can decorate your mini terrace to use every inch of space. 

We should not be limited by smaller spaces, which can still become beautiful terraces, no matter how limited the space.

Benches

A bench is one alternative to the traditional balcony sofa. Not only is a bench better in terms of design, but it’s also an excellent way to optimize your space.

One way to make your terrace look bigger is to match your wooden bench with the wall. This will give the space continuity.

Don’t forget to arrange cushions on your bench to ensure it’s comfortable.

Plants

Plants would also be an excellent addition to your mini terrace. Adding a little green gives a feeling of freshness and would give depth to the space.

The most important thing is that you include a variety of plants of different sizes and shades of green.

You could arrange the plants against a wall towards the back of the terrace, you could hang them, or you could place them on the ground. If you choose the last option, make sure you leave some floor space free to allow people to pass through.

Furniture

The question of size can sometimes make choosing furniture to decorate your mini terrace difficult.

The best furniture for smaller spaces is furniture that is small or that can be easily used and then stored away.  

To make the most of the space on your mini terrace, we would suggest opting for fold-away furniture, the benefit of which is that you can store it when it’s not in use.

Corner furniture is also perfect for decorating a mini terrace, given that it allows you to make the most of space that often goes unused, such as small corners.

Another option that would allow you to optimize the space would be a wall table or a table that hangs over a banister or rail. 

Lighting

Lighting is an important factor to consider when decorating any space, and especially when decorating a mini terrace.

To enjoy spending time on your mini terrace even at night, we suggest that you arrange white or yellow lights in garlands around the space. Candles will also look good. This will definitely give your terrace an inviting and summery feeling.

Textiles for decorating your mini terrace

Textiles are equally important when decorating your mini terrace.

In the summer, cotton and linen are the fabrics best suited to mini terraces.

White and beige go great on mini terraces. If you would like to make your space more colorful, use pillows or cushions with summery prints. 

Lastly, don’t forget the ground. There is nothing better than walking barefoot on your terrace.

Smaller terraces are often rectangular, so fitting a carpet would be ideal.

Another option is to carpet your terrace with an artificial lawn, which would give it a more natural look.

Whichever you choose, it’s best to ensure that it can withstand different weather conditions.

Conclusion

Here are a few final pieces of advice that will help you achieve the perfect look on your mini terrace.

First, remember that it’s best to measure your space before buying any furniture or furnishings. This way, you will be sure that any object will fit your terrace perfectly.

Second, consider how you will use your mini terrace before starting any decorating. This will determine what you will need.

For example, if your mini terrace will be used for relaxing or taking a break, you will need more puffs, cushions and rugs. 

On the other hand, if you want to use your mini terrace as a place to have dinner and eat, obviously you will need a dining table. 

This is why it is important to think about how you will use your terrace. Follow these steps and you will be able to transform your terrace into a unique and inviting space.
