terraza

In today’s post we want to propose how to decorate your terrace, but always giving it a personal and special touch.

 

Now the good weather arrives and since we cannot leave the house we start thinking about going out on the terrace. Or for example preparing a dinner in a perfect environment, reading a book, listening to music, sunbathing or going out to finish office work.

 

As advice we say, the best decoration is the one that each one gives their personal touch and the one that makes us feel comfortable and relaxed. For this, we have to have clear ideas and know the different alternatives that the market offers us to put them into practice.

For this we leave you 10 ideas to decorate your terrace, whatever its size and shape.

 

We must emphasize that in the decoration of terraces, the size and the shape influence, a lot!

 

Get the most of your terrace with the following ideas:

 

 

1.THINKING VERTICALLY

 

When a terrace is small and to gain space, the best way to decorate the terrace with plants is to take advantage of the walls. We can put pots and planters that are held in the paneling.

 

 

2.INCLUDE FLOWERS OR PLANTS

 

Regardless of the size we can include anything or ornament that we like and bring a personal charm, that makes our terrace or balcony look good, for example, the details with flowers are always a success.

 

Or any type of plants, for us they are the perfect complement on any terrace or balcony, whatever their style. If you want to create an exotic effect, place potted varieties around the dining room or living room. When you water them, you will have a pleasant feeling of freshness.

3.A BAR

 

Whatever your large terrace is, it will always fit a wooden bar or the material that you want. A small bar next to the railing can serve you for breakfast or a drink overlooking the street.

 

4.FOLDING FURNITURE

 

Use a folding table and chairs, so you will not take away space when you are not using them and you can fold your furniture in bad weather.

 

5.AN ARMCHAIR AND A COFFEE IN THE SUN …

 

We recommend putting a wicker chair and a side table will be more than enough to enjoy, for example, the morning sun while having coffee and reading the newspaper.

 

6.HAMMOCK

 

If your deck has more than one wall, try putting a hammock in one corner. It is a super comfortable and will seem ideal for sunbathing or taking a nap in the cool. Complete the corner with a pair tables in bright colors.

 

 

 7.PROTECTION SYSTEMS

 

This option is important to be able to enjoy your space even in the sunny hours, do not forget the shade systems: a pergola, a generously sized umbrella or an awning. The best option is a folding model; so you can change the temperature whenever you want.

 

A good idea that we recommend is to create a space with a table and a couple of chairs that will allow you to carry out any activity outdoors and add a nice umbrella in a color similar to that of furniture. You can also combine it with some colored cushions to give it a little personality and not be so minimalist. We are also in favor of decorating it with plants around it. Plants will make it look like a cooler space.

8.BOHO CHIC STYLE

 

Do you like ethnic style? Right now it is a trend and we have also thought about this type of style. Use geometric figure rugs, wicker furniture and ethnic patterned cushions and create a cute boho-style terrace. Don’t forget to add decorative stained glass elements.

 

 

9.TEXTILES, ALWAYS WITH COLORS THAT YOU LIKE

 

A simple way to decorate a terrace and look like a totally different one is to simply change the textiles. From iLuxenio we recommend including cushions in trendy colors or patterns, and rugs made or Berber-style fibers.

 

10.WOOD, BAMBOO, WICKER OR SYNTHETIC FIBERS

 

And finally another great idea is to include outdoor furniture made with natural materials such as wood or vegetable fibers such as wicker, rattan or jute.

 

The good thing about this type of furniture is that it is timeless and gives a cozy and natural touch to the environment. Make sure when buying that the furniture is suitable for outdoors so that it does not spoil and is kept in the best condition.

The luxury of setting up a home theater

home movie theater

Having a home theater is a great investment that not everyone can afford. Today we want to show you amazing home movie theater rooms, so you can be inspired if you are considering setting one up, and not missing a single detail.

Having a home movie theater room allows you to watch movies in the company of family and friends, a good excuse to get together and have a meeting.

It can also be used to play video games, watch soccer games with friends etc.

Essential elements that you need to set up a home movie theater and some aspects that you must take into account to come up with the perfect result:

Screen

It is one of the essential elements for the room. You have to choose the right size according to the room size. There are several types of screen.

 A white bed sheet:

It can serve as a screen but only as a quick-fix solution because small wrinkles can prevent good image quality.

Wall:

It can also be used as a screen. It is less recommended because it is very difficult to have a wall like that at home.

Rolling screen:

Another of the most economic screens. Its base is fixed to the wall and unrolls when we want to see a movie.

Motorized screen:

Same as above, the only thing that changes is that the screen rolls down with the help of a remote control. More comfortable and practical.


Projector screen stand:

They are usually used to make presentations but they also work great as a movie screen. Another economic option.

Fixed projection screen:

It is solely and exclusively for watching movies. It is fixed to the wall.

Stereo

Audio is a very important constituent for immersion in the storyline. A good home stereo system can make the difference. The 7.1 system is the best option for home cinema  offering a quite realistic and professional experience. You can find at the following link other audio system options.

 

Projector

The projector plays a crucial role in the viewing of the movie. There is a wide variety of types and prices. We recommend the following ones:

 

Projector Full HD/4K: The best option to watch your movies. The resolution of a Full HD projector offers a high level of detail for home theaters. Full HD projectors are only surpassed by 4K resolution. If you want to enjoy a good home theater experience, choose a projector with at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

HD Ready Projectors: A 720p projector or one with a little less native resolution but without falling into the VGA system. It is the second best option to watch movies in a very good image quality.

VGA / SVGA / XGA / WXGA Projectors: More economical and with more limited resolutions. Most of these projectors offer a 4:3 quality, which is domestic quality but not a movie theater one. Good option for a slightly lower budget.

 

3D Projector: Indicated especially for films that have been planned as 3D and 3D video games.

Location is the most important factor when designing a home theater. It is more likely to use a room without windows that can dazzle the screen, the basement is the most common choice in order not to loose floor space or exterior views.

Sometimes you can choose small skylights when the room is not dedicated exclusively to audiovisual use.Soundproofing the room is also very common to prevent bothering other people in the house.

If you choose to use  the basement then you will need less soundproofing, since it only had to be executed in the ground floor slab. Even having a large room, having a home movie theater room is the dream of many home owners, and a more than interesting option to make the social area something unique.
