How to decorate your terrace for maximum enjoyment

We all love good weather. There is nothing like a sunny day that allows us to go out on our terrace to sunbathe, enjoy a coffee with friends or enjoy a meal with the family. March is an ideal month to decorate your terrace. With spring just around the corner, it’s time to decorate it properly and spend a lot more time in it. In today’s article we are going to learn how to decorate a terrace to enjoy it to the fullest in the coming months. Let’s get started!

When decorating your terrace, remember that the furniture you place on it must be intended for outdoor use. The
garden furniture
are manufactured with materials specially designed for outdoor use, which makes them more resistant to different weather conditions.

In addition, you have to keep in mind that the furniture you place should be as resistant as it is functional and easy to clean.

How to decorate your terrace

Divide it into zones

Those of you who have a small outdoor terrace may have been quite amused by this first point. Even if this first step is not especially addressed to you, do not stop reading because it will be of interest to you.


The truth is that, if you are lucky enough to have a large terrace, the ideal is to divide it into several areas.

On the one hand, you can choose to create an area with pallet furniture.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?

But what happens if I don’t have all that space on my terrace?

The correct answer is that you will have to choose what functionality you want to give to your terrace. Do you want to use that space to relax with a cup of coffee or tea while you spend the afternoon with someone? Would you rather use that space to invite your family over for Sunday dinners and be able to do it outside?

If you have little space, the ideal is to think about what use you are going to give to that area.

Once decided, we move on to the next point.

Add furniture

Once you have decided how to organize the space on your terrace, you will need to add some furniture. This point is closely related to the previous point.

Depending on the size of your terrace and the functionality you want to give it, you will have to choose to add some furniture or others.

For small terraces there are many options.

On the one hand, to place a
pallet sofa
can be a good option if you decide that the terrace space is going to be used as an area where you can relax, read or spend time chatting with family or friends.

You can also place a coffee table and a couple of chairs. If they are foldable, so much the better. This way, if you live with your partner, you can have an outdoor space where you can have breakfast or a drink.

Another option is to use this space for sunbathing from time to time. For this purpose, you can place a lounger lounger or a pouf to enjoy a quiet moment outdoors.

If, on the other hand, you have a large terrace, you can take all these ideas for small outdoor spaces and apply them to the zoning of the terrace that we pointed out in the previous point.

Adds lighting

It is essential to have lighting on the terrace to be able to enjoy it at any time of the day.

The type of lighting you use will depend on the functionality of your terrace. Although from Fiaka we recommend you to use two types of lighting: main lighting and ambient lighting.


The main lighting would be dedicated to those areas where more light is needed, such as spaces reserved for dining.

Ambient lighting would be used in those terraces or areas of the terrace that are specially designed for relaxation.

Although, as we have said, the ideal, no matter how small your terrace is, would be to place both. This way you can use one or the other depending on the type of light you need at that moment.

The greener the better

Placing plants on your terrace offers you a wide range of possibilities to decorate your terrace and turn it into a place you will not want to leave.


You can combine colors, sizes and types of plants to create a truly inviting space. In addition, you can place them on the floor, on the wall or on dedicated shelves, so you will need to choose the form that best allows you to distribute them.
