Design of the interior within your home carried through to the garden
Did you know that it is often stated, that the garden terrace should be a second living room? Crazy is not that thought, since you will spend much of your time on the terrace during the summer months. For this reason, try to extend the design of the interior of the house to the patio, or the garden as a whole. For example, choose a lounge chair for the garden, whose design matches well with the sofa in your living room. In addition, think about designing a lighting plan for the garden just as you did when decorating your living and dining rooms. This allows you to sit outside late into the evening in summer; the lighting helps create a very cozy setting for you and your guests. In what ways could you revamp the exterior at your home to better connect the garden to your living room at home?
Create a place to dine late into the evening with friends
The terrace is often a very social place. In the sense, you’ll want to barbecue and dine here with friends and family in the summer months. If space permits, it may be interesting to opt for a large 8-person table. What is the length of an 8-person garden set is then soon the question? This depends somewhat on the design chosen. It often involves a table of about three meters, with four chairs on either side. You could order another separate chair for both headboards. This is how you eat at the table with ten people in summer!
Pair the garden set with an outdoor rug
Decorating the patio involves more than buying a garden set and, for example, incorporating lighting into the design of the garden. Also look into options for adding a large outdoor rug to the patio. Pair the outdoor rug with brightly colored flower pots. You can fill these with annuals such as pansies and geraniums, as well as fresh herbs, for example. Those herbs come in handy when you prepare delicious salads in your outdoor kitchen in the summer. In doing so, the flower pots provide a nice transition to the larger borders elsewhere in the garden. These borders add color to the garden and make it come alive in spring and summer. Think of the bees and butterflies your plants attract.
