erraces are a multifunctional element of modern gardens, used as outdoor entertaining spaces. For people who are increasingly spending the majority of the warmer months of the year outdoors, the terrace becomes a central aspect. And how you build and subsequently decorate it can have a huge impact on the feel it gives your garden.
Your terrace should be able to accommodate individuals as well as a small group. There will be times when you want to relax and enjoy being outside in the presence of your own company, and others when you will need to use it as somewhere to entertain larger numbers of people. Plannng and careful choices of furniture are, as a result, essential.
Wood is perfect for decorating your terrace and a material that allows you to really indulge your creative side. You can take inspiration from your travels or interiors magazines or some of the best hotels in the world that have incorporated decking into their interiors or exteriors. Also bear in mind that the Spanish have a long history of incorporating wood patterns into their flooring and homes. Inspiration is all around! Remember also that your patio does not have to look picture perfect or ultra smooth. Materials such as driftwood can add a really unique look and feel to a patio. This can work in many different styles of outdoor space, and adds an unusual focal point to a garden.
