  • Textiles. Textiles are one of the most important elements to achieve a comfortable and pleasant space. They are also ideal to add a touch of color to your terrace without investing too much money. Cushions of different sizes, mosquito nets, carpets and mats … It is also important to have a storage space where you can put all these elements in case of bad weather.
  • Plants. Plants are an element that brings color and vitality to the environment. They are also ideal for the outdoors. It is important to know what type of plants are best adapted to the amount of light and other meteorological factors in our area.
