Dreaming of a better way to decorate your outdoor space? Terraces are a space we often overlook, but it's a place we often spend a lot of time with our guests. Why not spruce it up a bit and make it more glamorous? There's plenty of options for taking your terrace up a notch — think adding nicer chairs with patterned cushions, installing a warm and cosy firepit, or even getting a professional to help you create a bar where you can serve your guests cocktails poolside. And with summer coming up, you won't want to miss the chance to make your backyard into a nirvana.

With this in mind, let's take a look at seventeen of the best terrace furniture ideas to get some inspiration for what you can do this summer. You'll never want to go back inside!

1. Firepit views

Wow — this view is incredible, but it's made even better when you can enjoy it by a warm fire on a cool summer night. We can imagine lounging here on those modern couches all summer.

2. City views

Looking over a city? A terrace is a perfect place to have meals and enjoy a great view. This wooden dining table looks fabulous against the natural look of the fence.

3. Enclosed terrace

This enclosed terrace is perfect for colder areas where you may not want the cold air rushing in! You can still enjoy the views and cuddle up on a nice couch. When everything's covered, you won't need weather-resistant furniture.

4. Spanish style terrace

With the tiled backsplash of the kitchen, this terrace feels Spanish-inspired. We love the look of the wooden furniture, the woodstove oven, and the openness of the kitchen. Have you thought about turning your terrace into a kitchen?

5. Hot tub views

If you have a terrace, why not make it even more functional by adding a hot tub? A professional can help you figure out your best options and pricing. It'll be well worth it when you can enjoy the view like this!

6. New England style terrace

It's a classic look and you can't go wrong with a New England style terrace. With stripes and simple wicker furniture, you'll feel like you're on the Atlantic wherever you are.

7. Metal and limestone

This terrace feels different because of the limestone walls and metal table, which come together to create a unique look. You can recreate a similar look by mixing and matching different materials and textures when decorating your terrace.

8. Golden terrace

Want to add some light? You can enjoy your terrace by night too, so don't forget to install enough lighting. Fairy lights are a popular option, but if you want an upgrade, then a professional can give you some tips on installing more permanent light fixtures.

9. Half-enclosed terrace

Half-enclosed terraces are a great idea for enjoying the benefits of the indoors and the outdoors at the same time. This is the ideal situation if you want to enjoy a bar to serve drinks to guests. Make sure to use weather-resistant furniture in case of rain!

10. All-white terrace

This all-white terrace looks fabulous thanks to the contrast with the dark wood furniture bases. The firepit is also a nice touch. We imagine this terrace would be a great place to enjoy with guests this summer!

11. Quiet corner terrace

If you're not looking for an extravagant look but still want a cosy terrace to enjoy on a quiet night, keep your furniture soft and add plenty of seating with pillows. It's still the perfect place to let loose or chill out!

12. Shady terrace

All of that sun can be really harsh for your skin, so if you want to avoid too much sun exposure, make sure to have a professional help you install some overhead shades.

13. Greek and modern

This modern but Greek-inspired patio looks spectacular. If you want to lounge around on your terrace, make sure to pick up some lounge chairs to really let yourself kick back.
