When your outdoor space is of the larger kind, it could be advantageous to divide it into sections. Plan your terrace in the same way as you would plan a room indoors. You might want a dining area in one part adjacent to serving areas and a barbecue area for outdoor cooking.
If your balcony is of the larger kind, you’ll probably have space for more furniture. Maybe even matching chairs and sofa or why not sun loungers. Use trellises or folding screens to create a cosy feel and privacy.
If you have a small outdoor space, utilise the space wisely. Don’t clutter it with too much furniture or the balcony will become difficult to use. You might want to fit a lot in, but don’t really have the space. That’s when it’s important to think about your priorities. What would you like to focus on?
