Lighting Up the Terraces for Cool Summer Nights

For those who love heat, there is little to say, since they enjoy it day and night, which is also evident in the decoration of their homes, with more furniture and accessories on the terrace to take advantage of and be comfortable when it is daytime (sun loungers, umbrellas, portable showers, swimming pools, etc. etc.).

He who is afraid to go out on the terrace in the daylight hours is already ‘another being’, and he only thinks of the tools necessary to spend a pleasant evening under the stars, when the temperature is already fairly tolerable. And what is essential to create a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere at nightfall? Furniture with fluffy seats such as sofas, sun loungers, hammocks, or large and comfortable armchairs if we are dining at the table and adequate ambient lighting.

This last question should never be taken lightly, forget about the old lamp or ceiling light that was already at home when you came to live, place several nice outdoor ceiling lights, hang lamps if you have a porch, install solar spotlights on the ground or in the form of skewers in pots, candles, lanterns, garlands of small lights or larger bulbs.

Take a good look at the terrace of this 5th floor, it is the duplex solarium and has everything you need to spend an evening with friends or alone with your partner and we say well-veiled, because there is no porch, just on less hot days it could be used here in summer.

Dining and barbecue area, chill out sofa area for several, reading area for few, Jacuzzi area for two and look at the lighting, beautiful right? Does that environment invite you to spend hours out there?
