How to decorate outdoor spaces?

August 28, 2022

So, what factors should you take into account when decorating outdoor spaces?

Style: first you need to decide what style you want your outdoor space to look like. This year 2022 the style par excellence is Mediterranean, with natural elements and neutral colours.

Materials: once you know what style you want to follow, it is time to look for the materials. Make sure that they are suitable for outdoor use in different weather conditions (wind, rain, high temperatures…). If you end up opting for materials such as wood, you will have to find out how to care for and maintain it.

Lighting: this is the essence of the space. To achieve a cosy space, avoid powerful white light and try to use warm, soft light. Ideas for lighting the space:

  • LED strips
  • Wall light
  • Garland
  • Curtain of lights
  • Hanging lamps
  • Solar lamps (for the garden, table lamps…)

Shade: essential to protect you from ultraviolet rays and provide privacy. Opt for elements such as:

  • Parasols
  • Pergolas
  • Windbreaks
  • Nets
  • Screens or decorative panels
  • Bruco, canes…

Plants and flowers: they are a very important decorative element. They bring a touch of colour and freshness to the space. However, it is very important to take care of them so that they look beautiful. If you don’t have the time they require, you can always opt for artificial plants.

Carpets and floors: ideal if you want to go barefoot in the outdoor space or to hide those less attractive floors.

  • Carpets: the perfect choice for covered outdoor spaces.
  • Wooden floors (or imitation): if you are looking to cover your existing floor and install a more elegant and hygienic one, wooden floors are the most suitable option.
