Pleasant temperature and a blue sky. It seems like you don’t need anything else, but yes! We tell you what to do, to be happier when you go out to the garden or terrace.
What a desire to #terracear at home! Discover everything you need to enjoy the outdoors even more. Of course, we show you those comfortable outdoor furniture in which you are going to spend many hours this summer. For this reason, we have decided to ask the experts what is the best distribution, how to present the gardens and terraces for this summer and update the decoration. From now on, you will make more life outside!
We have spent months taking advantage of any ray of sunlight to enjoy it on the terrace, porch or patio. Whoever has an outdoor space “no matter how mini, has a treasure and in these times even more”, according to what they say from the decoration firm Kave Home. “Now our time for disconnection, relaxation and leisure is outside our house” and, therefore, they add, the demand for furniture for these areas has grown.
Something in which the Aqui Tu Reforma team agrees, according to Albert Jané, architect and technical director, among the most requested works include those in areas that are not inside, such as “covering the patio so that all the space can be used. year – installing pergolas is very common – changing pavements and cladding, laying artificial grass or waterproofing patios “.
We have asked the two firms what aspects they consider key in the outdoors areas . In this way, they affirm that “To design an outdoor environment – indicates Albert Jané – it is essential to think about the different spaces and the functions of each one, as well as the routes or circulation areas. Having this clear we can start to think about what materials to use, the type of lighting for each of them and what elements we need to configure them “.
To get the exterior decoration right, it would be necessary to consider what uses and activities can be carried out: meetings, meals, reading space, meditation, rest … Next, we would move on to measuring the area, the choice of furniture and the definition of the style. Kave Home points out the possibility of “creating an urban jungle with pots at different heights without worrying about when to water them because they are self-watering, have good lighting, better if it is portable and can be charged with USB and bet on sustainable textiles”.
In the same way, they add that “sustainability is one of the most present concerns today at the consumer level, that is why we use certified, recycled and recyclable natural materials in our collections.” For Aqui Tu Reforma “another fundamental element is lighting. Each point of light has its function. There are some lights to delimit areas in the dark, others that mark the routes and, finally, those of ambience that generate pleasant spaces at night” .
Regarding vegetation, “it must be accompanied by an efficient irrigation system that allows a well-kept garden, optimizing the most precious resource: water. At the same time, it is important to reach one or two points of water and electricity consumption for our day to day “.
