Being an urbanite does not have to be at odds with the desire to savour part of the day outside. A terrace in the city is the solution to have it all.
1. A Relaxed and Stylish Atmosphere
Are you looking for your terrace to be a special place to rest? Opt for timeless pieces, like the Acapulco chair, in bright yellow. It fits like a cinema with today’s furniture and materials: the circular fibre table, the brass lamp and a corner sofa dotted with cushions with ethnic prints.
2. Folding Furniture for Mini Spaces
They are the best option to create eating areas in them: folding wing chairs and tables in wood. Pick-ups will allow you to have the terrace for other activities; Ikea.

4. A Fresh and Tasteful Look

5. An Up-to-date Salon
Go for straight metal and rope armchairs and sofas, with soft cushions and a modern, easy-to-mix palette. Smooth upholstery in brick colour, others in khaki green and gray and some patterned chairs. Dress them up with original textiles and put some resin tables in identical colours.
Reclining loungers, a lightweight square table, and an easy-to-move sunshade. It is what you need to have a terrace without complications. Add some cushions in summer colours, including a rug to take off your shoes and put some lanterns.
7. Full-colour and Bucolic
A beautiful gallery with aged woodwork and wooden floors will be brought to life with coloured furniture. A few chairs and a table in mint green are enough, like the ones in this room.
8. Corner With Lights
Versatile furniture is a great addition if your terrace is small. Think of a wooden bench like this one from Lights4fun. It will help you to set up a special corner. Wrap it with wide and soft cushions to sit and lean against the wall. Without forgetting a blanket, or the objects that help create atmosphere: candles, outdoor lights … And a few natural plants. The greenest touch!
9. Very Attractive Dining Room
Wrought iron furniture does not go out of style. You just have to choose current designs, but with certain deco details, such as the ceramic tiles on this table. Chairs of the same aesthetic cut will be your best allies.
10. Flirty and Only for Two
If your terrace is small, there is furniture designed for it. Like this idea from El Corte Inglés. Its balcony table with a wrought iron base and ceramic top occupy just enough space and the mix of materials is very beautiful. It is enough to surround it with warmly designed (and stackable) chairs to create an ideal and functional corner.

A perfect mix of artificial grass, cane and wicker furniture, ethnic print cushions and tropical plants, all from Ikea. Pour yourself a lemonade and voilà! , you already have your private oasis.
20. With Green Wall

21. A Revival in Outdoor Furniture: Wicker
Some materials are reinvented and continue to be on the market. The wicker furniture has been enriched with other fibres, very resistant to changes in temperature and atmospheric agents, which allows your furniture to looking perfect after withstanding the cold and humidity of winter.
22. Painted Wooden Floor
Fancy some colour on the floor? Replace the traditional wood tiles in a natural tone with other painted ones. The pieces must be protected against moisture, fungus and rot. Wood panelling is ideal for creating a comfortable outdoor space but requires annual care. Instead, you can install synthetic flooring, the latest trend in this sector.
23. Colorful Hammock
If your deck has two walls, try anchoring a hammock in one corner. It is a very economical option and so attractive that it will seem ideal for sunbathing or taking a nap in the cold. Go ahead and make a hammock yourself. You need a minimum of 2.5 m long fabric by 85 cm wide. Choose a resistant and breathable fabric (canvas or similar). Uses anti-mould polypropylene rope. Complete the corner with a couple of tables in bright colours.

They allow you to design the terrace to your liking since they adapt to your needs. In this case, an L-shaped bench has been installed to create a seating area. You can paint the furniture in white or give it colour and complete it with comfortable mattresses and cushions.
27. Protection Systems
Even in the sunny hours, to enjoy your space, do not neglect the shade systems: a pergola, a generously sized umbrella or an awning. Opt for a folding model; so it will be shady only when you want.
28. Materials Mix
