5 Key Factors for Creating the Perfect Terrace.


Summer is already here it’s time to spruce up the outdoors. Balliu has 5 keys you should follow to get the most out of your space and create the perfect terrace.

  1. Analyse the space you have.

    Measure your terrace well so you can make the right decision on how to best use it. Take a good look at the ground, whether it is lawn, flagstones or cement – the type of ground will condition the type of furniture you should choose and the colours that will best suit it.

  2. Aim for maximum functionality.

    Think about what type of activity will take place there. Will you use it for summer suppers with friends, for some leisurely sunbathing or for relaxing with a good book? Not all terraces are that big, so it is important to establish your priorities in order to make the most of it.

  3. Choose your furniture well.

    Once you have decided on the functionality your terrace will have, choose the type of outdoor furniture that best suits the atmosphere you want to create. Remember that the furniture will be unprotected and will be subjected to changes in temperature. If you don’t choose the right materials, it will not keep long. We recommend choosing items that are resistant and durable and have been made to stand up to different types of weather. This way, you can be sure they will remain in good condition for many years to come. Comfort is important, so choose furniture that meets your needs and does not require excessive maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy your spare time as much as possible. Opt for timeless designs that suit your space and stay in fashion for a long time.

  4. Protect yourself from the sun.

    If you have a terrace that gets the sun for many hours a day, look for solutions that provide you with shelter where you can enjoy your outdoor space at any time of day. There are many options available nowadays to suit any kind of terrace. Whatever style you choose (awnings, canopies or sunshades), we recommend that you pay special attention to the material it is made from and whether it has the necessary UV protection. Sunrays are very aggressive, weaken fabric, making it age more quickly, and fade the intensity of its colour. For areas hit by strong wind, make sure to use storm-resistant materials and use a heavy enough base for your sunshades to ensure they remain stable, so preventing unnecessary accidents.

  5. Add atmosphere to your terrace.

    It’s time to decide on colours. Choose the ones that best adapt to your garden area. We recommend going for neutral fabrics for tables, chairs and parasols and then using more daring colours for additional furniture, such as loungers and mini loungers, or accessories, such as cushions, tablecloths and towels. This will give you an elegant space while adding personality and atmosphere to your terrace.
