Choose plants that adapt to low temperatures
As one of the elements that most decorate a space, both indoors and outdoors, plants cannot be missing from your terrace at any time of the year. To keep your little outdoor oasis alive in winter, the key is to choose those types that resist the cold. Do your research, bookmark your favorites and give the coziest touch to your particular paradise.
Choose the furniture material well
An important factor to take into account when decorating your terrace is the material of the furniture. When exposed to inclement weather such as sun, wind or rain, they can suffer and deteriorate. In this way, when furnishing your terrace you must take into account the resistance of the material you choose. One of our favorites is wood since it combines aesthetics, resistance and will also provide a super elegant rustic touch.
Opt for textiles that are resistant and ‘warm’
Textiles are one of the keys when it comes to decorating a terrace and, above all, doing so with a view to winter. Now, when choosing them you have to take into account several factors such as resistance. Get clothes made of strong and warm fabrics such as wool or hair, ideal for covering sofas. Cotton cushions are also an ideal option for decorating and, at the same time, preserving heat. Finally, raffia is perfect for rugs since, in addition to being resistant and durable, it looks ideal in any style.
In winter, more than any time of the year, we love to take advantage of the few moments of sun that the climate allows us. In this way, when decorating and furnishing our terrace it is important that we take into account the sunniest point according to the orientation and thus, place the furniture in the correct way. Although it may seem silly, making this mistake is very common and even though it is winter, we cannot waste a ray of sunshine!
