In summer we all spend a lot of time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather and fresh air outside. So that you can really experience this pleasure, you can make your garden terrace beautiful and spend many cozy hours there.
We want to show you a few ideas for your patio, garden terrace or veranda, but they all have one common goal: to give practical tips on how to transform your outdoor area into a real oasis of wellbeing.
Does your garden terrace look a bit monotonous at the moment? Don’t you feel like spicing it up, or maybe you don’t have the financial means to spice it up? Regardless of whether your patio is large or small, we always have a practical solution for you! Today we’re going to show you 8 inexpensive ways you can make this outdoor space more alluring and comfortable.
1. Round outdoor table is more suitable and is often preferred
Opt for a round table, this is often preferred over other table models
When looking for an outdoor furniture set in the market, consider a round or oval table over square or linear designs. Rounded table tops are easier to navigate and if an additional guest comes to your chat, you can easily place them there. Nobody likes to sit on the corner at dinner.
2. Make your garden fence an eye-catcher
Most home and garden owners focus on the floor space and outdoor furniture when designing their patio. Unfortunately, this is not always correct, because your fence also has a lot to offer in this regard…. Take a look at the following example. These homeowners have turned old vintage mailboxes into great flower containers, successfully spicing up the garden fence. In this way you can use the vertical surface of the small garden terrace in the best possible way. Cacti and succulents have been planted that do not need any special care and do not have any great demands on irrigation, but still bring a green note to the outdoor area.
Lush green plants on the garden wall protect you from prying eyes from neighbors.
Can you easily reach the top of your garden wall? Ah, wonderful! Please do not forget that you also have some space here. This could be used for beautiful flower pots. Green plants can help stop prying eyes from the neighboring courtyard. In this way, you can use even the smallest area to have more green outside. This is an important step in designing your oasis of wellbeing outside.
Here you have gone a step further and created a small canopy that is attached to the wall and gives this outdoor area the finishing touch. In this specific case, it is a wooden lattice on which green climbing plants grow.
3. Interesting natural sounds reinforce the romantic atmosphere outside and let you feel the natural surroundings up close
Hopefully your back yard is full of birds chirping and bees humming softly. But if this is not the case with you, then you absolutely need some nature sounds there. The endless rush of water is very good for the mind and soul, calms and relaxes. Would you like a practical tip from us? Take a close look at the picture! Yes, this is a large glazed planter that has been transformed into a water fountain. Isn’t that a brilliant idea? So you can enjoy the quiet rushing of the water for hours, day and night. In peace, undisturbed! Isn’t that to be envied?
But if you don’t have space for a fountain on your garden terrace or the sound of bubbling water makes you go to the toilet quickly, a greyhound could be a good alternative. This, tied to a tree, has an additional three-dimensional effect.
4. Use light curtains to protect your privacy outside
Surely you want to protect your privacy outside on the patio or under the pergola, don’t you? For this purpose, you can use thin curtains that also act as sun protection and introduce a certain dose of softness and drama into the design of your outdoor area.
Use a suitable fabric for indoor and outdoor use, especially for areas exposed to the elements. Also think of protective plates so that you can protect your grill from strong winds.
5. The right lighting on the garden terrace is particularly important
Outside on your garden terrace you need suitable lighting at night. Here we have another practical tip ready for you: Hang some fairy lights and create a festive atmosphere at dinner! Well-positioned spotlights are also a must there, because their directional light allows you to visually highlight certain objects and put them in the limelight more easily. So, there are again numerous design options available to you that you just have to access.
6. Personalize your outdoor recreation space!
If you properly fire up your creative thinking, you will find ways to express yourself beyond your choices of garden flowers, foliage, and shrubs. Here we show you how to attach small vintage glass balls to the top of a wrought iron railing and thus introduce a very clear, personal touch to the outside area.
7. Nothing neutral, rather something woven with beautiful patterns and in eye-catching colors
Very often carpets and rugs for indoor use are made in neutral tones. But it can get colorful outside. You can lay out beautifully patterned carpets in bright colors on your garden terrace. These give you a sense of depth and breadth and make your patio look limitless. These days, great indoor-outdoor rugs can be found in the market, and the choice of patterns and colors is enormous. You will definitely find the right one for you.
8. For a better home look, you can use what you already have.
Check out your attic, basement, and garage. There you will definitely find long-forgotten, little-used pieces that could find a new life outdoors. You can make great hanging baskets yourself from old vessels and thus freshen up the outside area. You can also attach a colorful pattern as a wall tattoo to the house facade.
If you follow our practical tips for designing your roof terrace, you will get a lot of jealous looks this summer. We wish you many wonderful hours outside on your garden terrace!
