17 beautiful terraces to get inspired

Here are 17 ideas to help you create a cozy and charming terrace!

As soon as the good weather returns, the terrace becomes a part of the house in its own right. Whether you sit there to chat, drink a coffee or read a book, it must be warm and welcoming. Out of inspiration to decorate your terrace? Here are 17 ideas to help you create a cozy and charming terrace.

1. A romantic terrace

A stone or gravel floor topped with a wrought iron table and chairs is the perfect combination to create a romantic terrace . Add a few flowering plants for a colorful touch that will complete this soft and soothing atmosphere. This style is perfect for a small deck.

2. A living room terrace

The garden has become a real living room . Also, you can use your terrace as your living room! For this, a garden sofa, its armchairs and a coffee table will set the scene in which you can spend moments where good humor and conviviality will be at the rendezvous. 

3. A green terrace

To make your terrace a soothing place, there’s nothing like inviting plants . Flowering or green, drooping or climbing, in pots or planters, plants can take a wide variety of shapes to immerse your terrace in a plant atmosphere. A real haven of peace where you can relax in complete peace of mind. 


4. An illuminated terrace

To give another view of the terrace, you can play with the lighting . To do this, bet on spotlights in the plants and line your low walls with light to dramatize the garden in the blink of an eye. A light garland will bring a very trendy decorative touch, while the lamps placed on the ground will allow you to modulate the lighting of your terrace at your leisure.


5. A terrace for friends

If what matters to you is to be able to receive your friends on the terrace, have a large number of garden chairs that will allow you to gather together for long discussions outside. Gathered around a large table, these chairs will bring conviviality to your outdoor space which will become a place where it is good to meet. 

6. A tree-lined terrace

To give a pleasant atmosphere to this terrace , it is surrounded by vegetation with trees and bushes which offer privacy to this space dedicated to relaxation. A real cocoon conducive to relaxation.


7. A terrace for meals

The terrace is often dedicated to large meals with friends or family! We then place a large table to accommodate everyone and we opt for an arbor to provide some shade during the day. Adorned with curtains or climbing plants, my gazebo is a real well-being asset in the garden.

8. A dining terrace

This terrace is designed as an extension of the house and finds its place in the organization of the house as a dining room, with a kitchen area. You can then eat and even cook in the garden without having to go back and forth between the inside and the outside of the house.

9. A terrace to escape

To give a holiday look to your terrace , install a few plants at the edge of the pool to decorate and wicker armchairs lined with soft cushions. Change of scenery guaranteed!


10. A terrace to relax

Here, no armchair or garden sofa, only deckchairs to furnish the terrace. You can imagine yourself relaxing there after a hard day’s work.


11. An exotic terrace

Let a wind of exoticism blow on the terrace with accessories that seem straight out of the Caribbean. You can also add a fringed fabric hanging seat and a pretty potted palm tree to complete the decor.

12. A country house terrace

To bring a country house atmosphere to your terrace, start by laying a tile floor with red highlights, then install an authentic and charming wooden and metal dining table.

13. A covered terrace

When it rains but you still want to spend time in the garden, the covered terrace becomes the ideal ally. In addition, we do not worry about bad weather when friends are invited to dinner.

14. A terrace in the grass

Why not set up your reception area in the middle of the lawn? With a small table made from a tree trunk and a few wrought iron chairs, the atmosphere is romantic and natural.

15. A contemporary terrace

A garden room with clean lines, light and plain colours, this modern terrace focuses on sobriety. To this is added a wooden floor for a touch of authenticity and elegance. 

16. A protected terrace

To avoid vis-à-vis with the neighbors , put a reed which, in addition to hiding you, creates a more natural decor. It’s also a great way to bring shade to the patio. 

17. A colorful terrace

Bring color and life to your patio by choosing pink and orange tinted accessories. A bohemian look full of pep for a space that will immediately put you in a good mood.
