This wooden terrace is suitable for rustic gardens as well as modern gardens. 

Both the furniture and the surrounding fence is wooden, creating a very warm and simple environment. The wood works in harmony with the stone slabs. 

Tip: Use a good varnish on the wood in your garden so that it doesn't get ruined by adverse weather conditions.

2. A living room in the garden

Anyone who has an outdoor living room can really count themselves lucky! This one even features comfortable sofas, a ceiling fan and a television!

The only trick is to make sure that there are some sliding doors, blinds or a large cover like this one so that the area won't be affected in a thunderstorm.

3. The French bistro setting

Looking to bring some French atmosphere to the terrace? Use some funky chairs to add a Bistro look and feel. A few matching cushions and some cheerful flowers can create a beautiful ambiance. 

4. A mix of materials

If you have garden furniture but you're worried that it doesn't suit the terrace, not to fear! Sometimes an outdoor area can look beautiful with a mix of styles. Add different types of furniture for a homely and cozy environment.

Here we can see how different types of tables and chairs enhance each other, rather than clash.

5. Residential environments that cross borders

In this terrace, interior and exterior areas merge into one another. This is a truly exceptional design. The sliding doors allow for a wonderful flow between the spaces while the awnings ensure that this space doesn't get too hot on summer days.

6. Living space for loungers

This beautiful terrace area is like a dream right? The living space inside opens up onto an exterior space—perfect for those who like to lounge around in the sunshine and fresh air. 

The stone floors give this space a minimalist, clean and simple look while the glass folding doors are very functional and delightful.
